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.
