It's because the majority of them are the older movies. I really only use it to kill time between receiving dvds

I just watched Demolition Man and Down Parascope not too long ago. My style of movies though is old movies, before all the crap. Or pixar and the likes.

I agree dude they dump alot of junk on the instant queue. And through Xbox it takes FOREVER to scan through it all. AND, the quality of most of them sucks. All of that and the fact that the new releases take forever to get here by mail, seems like Im in line forever. Blockbusters mail order system is better but there is no online or Xbox option, they dont have many UFC discs, but you can exchange them for rentals at the store. So what am I saying? I dont know, Im an idiot, Ive had both services and cant decide which to keep.
That said, there are some gems they stream online. For instance, check out "Following", Christopher Nolan's (The Dark Knight, Memento, The Prestige) first film that was done on something like a $1500 budget. Its an amazing piece of art. Shows that big budgets dont mean diddly if the directors good.

The documentary section is nice. They have a few interesting ones. I only get to use the service at my friend's place though, I don't have an XBox unfortunately.

Yes, most the things i have streamed have been documentaries and tv shows... guess its not a total waste, it does kill time while waiting on new movies.. and if i were you i would probably stay with netflix bignutz, never tried blockbusters method but i mean streaming may not be great but its a nice addition.. and im assuming blockbuster isnt much or at all cheaper than netflix..

I just download movies as torrents and watch them that way. If I end up liking the movie then I'll go out and buy it.

TV shows are the main reason for using instant play. Full seasons of many recent shows are available.
