Netflix 5.1 Movie List

December 2, 2010Written by Allen Tyson

The arrival of the Netflix app on the PS3 brought with it 5.1 surround and 1080p streaming. If you were wondering what titles were rated as X-High/HD and are in 5.1 you’re not alone. Thankfully, one of the largest audio/video communities around is doing their best to compile a list.

Over at the AV Science Forum, a member with the handle Mastino has put out the call to document all movies that the meet the above criteria. With the community behind him, nearly 40 movies have been identified thus far:

Bitch Slap
Bruce & Lloyd out of Control
Crips and Bloods: Made in America
Four Dragons
Holy Rollers
Malice in Wonderland
Matchstick Men
Matrix Revolutions
Red Cliff: Theatrical Version
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Super Capers
The Last Boy Scout
Undisputed III
Ip Man
The Wild and Wonderful Whites.
What just Happened?
Food, INC.
The Girl Who Played with Fire
Batman (1989)
Bigger Stronger Faster
Let the Right One In
The Exorcist
Red Riding Trilogy (all 3 pts)
Eden Log
Iron Man Adventures
Metropolis Restored
Me and You and Everyone We Know
Don’t look back
New York Minute
No Impact Man: The Documentary
Ong Bak 2: the Beginning
The Warlords
The Good, the Bad, the Weird

While top-tier titles are notably absent, it’s not a bad start as the selection is truly all over the map. If you’ve never experienced the wonder of Donnie Yen (Ip Man) or were looking for a reason to watch Batman again, Netflix is certainly giving you a good reason.
