That was actually the result of Rumsfeld, not Bush. Bush wanted to transition the old Baathist party into the new government, in order to keep stability (at the lower levels). This is generally accepted as the correct way to have transitioned the government. Bush ordered Rumsfeld to do as such.
Rumsfeld acted upon his own initiative, and directly went against Bush's orders.
It is generally thought that Rumsfeld did this to intentionally make Iraq a more difficult if not impossible place to stabalize, in accordance with the teachings of Leo Strauss, who believed that until the United States had a new enemy it could be morally opposed to (like the USSR before it), the US would stagnate morally, economically, and militarily.
The Power Of Nightmares is a BBC documentary that is a pretty good introduction to this.
This looks fantastic! It isn't on Netflix instant, but after checking canistreamit.com, I found that it is available for free from Hulu. Thanks for the rec!
Whom he was watching graduate in that photgraph - Class of 1995.
Moon is a fantastic movie BTW. It's pretty much just Sam Rockwell for 90 minutes and he kills it. Surprisingly emotion evoking for what appears on the surface to be a SciFi film. Definitely catch it if you haven't yet. It was on YouTube for some time but appears to have been pulled. Can I Stream.it claims it is currently only available to stream for "free" on Starz, but that source requires subscription. Of course, I am confident the capable folks here can get creative in their web searches. ;)
And sometimes Amazon Prime. The selection still isn't great but every once in a while it has something I'm looking for.
Props to http://www.canistream.it/ for being a useful service.
Now only if canistreamit or someone like them added a way for me to save films/shows I want to watch now or in the future into a netflix-like queue, such that I could any time look at the list and see where something I'm interested in is available right now, if anywhere. I'd like to see a trailer for a movie that isn't out yet and think "Hey, I want to see that eventually, probably not in the theater though...I'll save it to my list." (It used to be possible to save unreleased films to your Netflix streaming queue, but the CEO if Netflix is a douchenozzle and took that away.)
(I know CISI can set up an email reminder, but that's not really what I need.)
the folks behind the website actually just had a thread here a week ago about it. from what i gather, they're pretty responsive. if you end up using them, perhaps send them an email seeing if they can add on vudu or any other service you use that they don't yet catelogue.
Check out Can I Stream It. There's a mobile app that I use all the time to search for movies/shows I want to watch. It tells you what services you can watch for free, to rent, or to buy, to stream.
It's really useful when you know what you want to watch. Though the other 90% of the time when you're just flipping through trying to find something it's not as helpful.
Netflix had a public API that developers could use to find out info about Netflix's catalogue. For example, can I stream it uses this API to tell you if a movie or TV show is available on Netflix via streaming or disc.
The public API never saw huge usage, and a bunch of online tools are going to keep access to the info they were getting from the API.
You'd know all of this if you bothered to read the article.
<em>Thunderheart</em>. It's kind of so-so in the beginning, but it has good follow-through, if I remember right. Worth a watch, but don't expect high action. You need to stick with it. It's got its moments but it tries to be more of a police procedural (which is in line with Val's role in the film). Good luck finding it. It's relatively obscure, as White Men Can't Jump trounced it at the box office when they opened, but your local library may be able to request a DVD from someone else in their system.
I think I'm the only person that remembers It's Your Move. I loved that show, and I was devastated that it only lasted a season. I recently re-watched them and my question is: How hot was Caren Kaye? Seriously. I have a bit of a thing for 80's chicks.
Link for anyone who hasn't seen My Tutor.
ER streams on Amazon, iTunes and Vudu. Just not for free.
It's really hard to find anything produced by a major network or studio that isn't available for streaming if you'll pay for it... unless it's an old Disney movie. They're weird about holding back certain movies for years.
Reference to this scene from this movie. You should go watch it. It's avaible on these platforms.
Then, wait with the rest of us for the sequel!
Doesn't appear to be on any streaming services. You can buy it by the episode on Vudu, but it's cheaper to just buy the DVDs, which look to only be $15 on Amazon right now...
Shhhh!! You'll spoil it for everyone!
Honestly the movie has been out a long time and you can't stream it anywhere so I wouldn't feel bad about it.
I just use Can I Stream It and a Google Doc when I see a good trailer. It's set up with four columns
Date, Title of flick, Link (whether its IMDB, Trailer or Reddit Link), Availability
http://www.canistream.it/ is a great website for quickly finding a way to stream movies/tv shows.
>in my country
Didn't see that at first. Not sure if that will change anything.
No where apparently. DVDs are only $16 a season on Amazon though. Or you could just watch it illegally.
I like canistreamit because I have access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. But if I don't know what I want to watch, I need to pick one service's recommendation engine. I know there are recommendation apps out there, but I don't know of any which cross reference the catalogs of different streaming services.
Looks like you can buy it digitally in the usual places and Xfinity has it on demand if they're a provider in your area, but nothing else in the way of streaming options.
Depending on where you live, your library probably stocks DVDs you can borrow the same as books - it's worth trying through them. Not available as a Netflix DVD (yet) and Redbox only does movies, so unless you know some DVD rental store nearby that's survived, the library is kind of your only possible rental option.
Does anyone have a good tool for comparing what content is available on which region of Netflix? I know that canistream.it exists but I'm hoping there's a netflix-specific tool for comparing regions. Otherwise I spend a bit of time flicking between regions to see whether something is available..
incidentally, I believe there's a deal on Google Play movies for 75% off any rental.
edit: yup. http://slickdeals.net/f/8392173-google-play-any-one-movie-rental-75-off
He's making a little bit of a joke. If you haven't seen it though, oh man, you're missing out. It looks like they just took it off Netflix, but it's worth a couple bucks to rent and enjoy
Because it is not available in digital download, at least according to canistreamit.com Blu ray and DVD releases only.
Correction it says it is available on vudu when I tried again
That's one hard to find movie. http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/My%20name%20is%20tanino
I wonder if someone paid to make it go away.
There are some seeds on a giant movie torrent tracker that I'm a member of but they are lousy SD Xvid versions only.
I keep using canistream.it or uNoGS to find David's works. I really want to make a webapp to aggregate all the places you can watch his stuff and also a database for things you can't really find online easily unless you know what to look for (play readings, guest appearances).
But alas, who has the time?
Does this even exist online yet? Search for a show, press play and it opens the service it is on? (Assuming your pay for the service of course.) Could also list purchasing and renting prices from multiple platforms.
EDIT: yep: http://www.canistream.it/
Yeah, Netflix is different in every country; they're beholden to the studios who control what can be seen and where.
EDIT: In case anyone else finds this comment, Can I Stream It? will tell you where things are available, so if you have subscriptions to multiple services you can just search for the movie/TV show and find out where it's available, even broken down by country.
Saw your post and decided I also need such a service. So I did a quick search and found http://www.canistream.it/ which looks like it fits the bill. Going to start using it today. Thanks for the idea!
Just in case you're not joking: where you can watch it.
You're one of today's lucky 10,000.
Hulu, never ever. Netflix also lost/got rid of most of the content that I cared about with them so I unsubscribed from there. I haven't used iTunes for music since... 2010? 2011? With each gui change I started disliking it more and more to the point where I felt like I was using a program I hated because I had to. Then I remembered Winamp still exists.
I run my own media server now. I have multiple movies that neither netflix or hulu has. Does hulu even have movies? I seriously don't know. I just checked 5 movies off the top of my head though on http://www.canistream.it "The Godfather," "A Clockwork Orange," "Being John Malkovich," "The Usual Suspects," and "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." Only one of them came up with a streaming option, that being "The Usual Suspects." I have all of them though and can watch them whenever, where ever.
I wanted to also check "Gone with the Wind" (1939), "Snatch" (2000), and "Spotlight" (2015), but the damn site didn't even have them listed as movies.
Streaming services died to me a long time ago.
Hulu and Amazon Prime are good services too, but you definitely have to search for what you want to watch.
Try http://www.canistream.it/ to search for your favorite movies and see what platforms they are available on.
Available on Amazon 48hr SD, and also these locations
If you haven't seen this movie, you're missing out. Filmed back when Ireland was a "3rd World Country"/s
My favourite (among many quotes):
Jimmy Rabbitte, Sr.: Is this the band then? Betcha U2 are shittin' themselves.
I just checked on canistream.it (relevant URL, lol) and it says it's not streaming anywhere.
However, looks like there's actually a YouTube rental here, or you can watch it in crap quality here.
Thanks! Ya, that type of functionality is on my list, but like you said, its a lot of work. This site here does exactly that http://www.canistream.it/ but they do not have an API unfortunately. Still figuring out how to approach this feature because I want it as well
Looks like it's available on Netflix DVD according to this.
See if you have any friends who own it, lots of people have it on DVD.
It's the kind of movie you need to watch more than once. The first time you'll think, wtf was that. Once you realize how much people like to quote it, you'll be glad you watched it. It's funny, British humor, but very weird. Just pay close attention to the dialog and you'll understand why people like it. Might want to find a few friends and see if they've never seen it either, and watch it together. Maybe bring someone along who's seen it before too. Funny parts can be made more funny when someone's enjoying it with you. It's not always easy to watch a niche comedy by yourself.
"Now you must cut down the largest Redwood in the forest... wiiiiiiiith.... A HERRING!!!"
A website cataloguing movies and their current availability on multiple streaming services, denoting if it's free or how much it costs. Will also send you updates if something you want to see pops up on one.
There's no legal way to watch or purchase it in the US. The only way I saw to do it was to import a bluray out of region, but that involves circumventing copyright protection in violation of DMCA. So, yeah, they're not getting paid no matter what.
Lots of things aren't on the streaming service. Let's pick one example, the recent-ish movie Gone Girl. Can you stream it? No. But it's out on DVD. Lots of worth-seeing movies are like that, both recent ones and back-catalog ones.
Yeah, it's no fight club but not bad. Looks like it's not for streaming free or rental anywhere, just purchase, in which case RedBox is the way to go if you have one near. http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/Edge%20of%20Tomorrow
About as nerdy as it gets.
Streaming on HuluPlus
A British comedy about two guys and their manager that work in IT in the basement of a big corporation. All the endless end user bullshit they have to put up with and how one guy (Roy) is always trying to score with the ladies and the other super nerdy guy (Moss) still lives with his mom.
HILARIOUS. I could easily binge watch it once a month.
Also - where in the Midwest are you?
Paradise Lost is an amazing, essential watch that is very much like Serial (including the cliff-hanger ending), but for all the sleuths here, West Of Mephis might be a better watch. The storytelling isn't as close and personal, but it's better as an investigative work.
Also, please just watch the original 12 Angry Men, it's really much better.
I agree with you. Although I do still pirate some of the time. If I'm looking for something to watch. I go to Can I stream it? and search there. It lets you know whats available on all of the different streaming sites. Since I have three different accounts on three different sites. This makes finding things easier.
If I can't find it there then I pirate it.
According to Can I Stream It, legally none of the SW movies are available for streaming or digital download.
of course it links to the wrong series, despite asking me to choose which series I wanted. fucking typical.
Yeah, no legal way, think you're only option is to download Hola Better Internet or some other VPN then tell it to put you in the UK for 4oD.
It's by Channel 4. The other actually good terrestrial channel.
Edit: Link: http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/4f06776bf5f807dc5100003c/frozen
You'll see it claims it's available to rent on Vudu...but if you click Vudu's link, it's not the same Frozen.
If I can rent it for under $5, I will. If the only option is to *buy the movie, off to Piratebay I go.
*by 'buy' I mean 'pay for the right to watch under certain conditions'
canistream.it says an Amazon rental is the fastest/cheapest option.
If you have a DVD player, don't forget video stores. They're typically cheaper than an online rental, especially for such an old title.
There was a ton of overlap when I had it but Netflix has let a lot of series go without trying to reacquire them. They seem to be more focused on movies and original content right now.
Your best bet is to look at this site and see who has what and if those shows would be worth the fee for you.
This is a useful site to see where you can watch a certain movie or TV show. http://www.canistream.it/
I have been using the apps off of my TV (2013 model) and have had no issues with the Prime app. It is a little clunkier than Netflix, but I've had no real issues with it.
I dropped cable completely and run with Hulu, Netflix and Prime. This works for me personally as I'm not glued to the TV 24x7 and don't have to be current on everything. If I do need to be current with a show I will by the episodes off of Google Play or iTunes. Some shows you can watch off the broadcast company's website if you have a PC that has HDMI out.
The prime membership has proven invaluable to me at this point. It's nice having packages show up within 2 days and I do a lot of ordering off of the site. The TV and movie selection seems pretty decent, but that's my taste and you would need to look into it yourself to see if it fits. You can try Prime for free and cancel if it doesn't meet your needs. Same goes for Netflix.
If you want legal then it's $10 for a digital copy. No rentals are available online.
On Netflix White Christmas is on streaming, that's a nice classic.
No problem. :) I hope you still have disc renting for Netflix, because it's not available to steam from them.
That sucks dude. Hmm have a look at this site (http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/4f6d38cef5f8075f59000009/the-cabin-in-the-woods). Maybe if you get a pre-paid credit card and use it on one of the services mentioned here you get atleast do a digital rental.
It's available to rent on a couple streaming platforms right now. It releases on Blu-Ray tomorrow.
yeah, garbage version that cuts off the first minute before opening credits scene - https://youtu.be/zq_7oB8M7o8
Edit - i checked http://www.canistream.it and it looks like it's only available on netflix dvd at the moment
It's sometimes worth checking 'can I stream it'--I mean, not in this case, but sometimes it is. :)
As far as I know, you can't get at Kara no Kyoukai legitimately--at least, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu don't have it.
No Streaming , Purchase , Rental , Xfinity , DVD info found (within canistream.it's database) for the movie listed:
Only reason is that I'm using separate service for this (http://www.canistream.it), don't have info about this kind of stuff.
However, I guess I will need to start getting this info, because jumping to external sites isn't that fun :)
Thank you for your insights, it is pretty hard to get those and keep improving
You can check to see if you can rent or stream it here. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available for renting or streaming anywhere right now.
It's just getting hugged to death because it's some tiny site. Hitting refresh a few times eventually loads it for me.
Also the site is basically hosting the entire movie broken into eight parts, so I kind of fear it will get dmca'd.
Unfortunately it's not available for streaming netflix at the moment
Cafe Au Lait is really good if you can find it. An early film of Vincent Cassel. http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/cafe%20au%20lait
Pretty sure this is the move that Jodie Foster saw that got her to decide to help with La Haine.
And, well, the movie wasn't a hit, it is good.
Can I Stream.it is the only one I know of. The extension only displays results for movies, though, not TV shows. The main page does let you search for TV shows, just not the Chrome extension.
Also lists how much it might cost to purchase or stream it from those sites if they require a rental fee or something, so you can also find the site that has it the cheapest if there's no free streaming option.
Can I Stream.it
Doesn't have actual release dates (as pointed out, they're generally not known until fairly close to the actual date), but it allows for notifications of when it is available.
Watch Merchants of Doubt.
It's a fantastic documentary that explains the tactics and exposes the money behind climate science denial.
Available to rent or buy.
The late show from last night is available for free on CBS.com or on CBS All Access service which is on Roku, android, web, and I think not sure Chromecast and Fire Tv. most CBS are available about 10 days later for free on their website and old CBS app. Access has live streaming in many area and most episodes are quickly available if not live for an area I believe.
You should check can I stream it. I don't remember if they have an app. They are the go to source for a lot of streaming content.
CanIStream.It is a free service created by Urban Pixels that allows you to search across the most popular streaming, rental, and purchase services to find where a movie is available. If the movie you're looking for is not available, just sign-up, set a reminder and voila we will shoot you an email when your chosen service makes the movie available. It's simple and fast.
You can check out CanIStream.it. It'll show Netflix, Amazon Streaming, Hulu, and several other such services. Just type in what you're looking for and it'll show you which streaming service has it. If it's not available to stream on any of them you can set it up to send you an email alert when one of the services you choose has it available.
We love being cordcutters. We have a full-out computer hooked up to both our TVs (one we bought for about $200, the other is an old laptop of mine) that we use to stream Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime, and sometimes other shows on network sites or YouTube. If I had to pick just one, definitely Netflix. If you ask around, though, I bet you know people who have accounts, and they might be willing to share. Many streaming services are down with this - Netflix allows you to have different profiles, even.
We watch less TV now, and are more intentional about what we do watch. Far less putting it on for background noise. It's an improvement, in my mind.
Canistream.it is a must for people streaming.
If you're tech-saavy and go the HTPC route, look up the istream plug-in for Kodi (formerly XBMC).
It's not on Netflix streaming, but it's available for digital rental elsewhere (and also, this is a cool site to check just that kind of thing).
Hey, sorry about this. I made this bot and I get the information from Can I Stream It, and they didn't list the movie as having streaming options, which is why it wasn't listed. I looked for this movie on Hulu, and you're right, it is streaming there, so I'll send an e-mail to can I stream it to see if they can fix that.
ITT: people get so overexposed to Paul Blart Mall Cop that they actually consider watching it, and then can't because there's no streaming options.
good job hollywood
I'd be willing to bet that at least some of those are available, but in a different country. It's just a matter of finding out which one(s), and using a VPN based in that country. Try http://www.canistream.it/
np man! I'm glad to find someone who's actually interested in reading and watching. You can get Vol II & III from Netflix http://www.canistream.it/search/term/Yukikaze Vol I can be had for $4 used online. Failing those, there are quite a few clips on YouTube.
Where can I watch online?
If you're Canadian. Netflix. If you're American, the CW site usually streams it, as well as Hulu. If you can't access these methods, or you're not in either of these two countries, then use Google. Subreddit rules prevent me from linking to external sources. But if I found a way to watch day of release online, so can you.
Check out this site to see where you can legally watch Courtesy of /u/Starbuck107
Hey, thanks for the comment. Just want to update you on what happened here, since I think it's a pretty good use case. I checked the logs and it looks like neither of those titles are available for streaming, rental or digital purchase according to Can I Stream it. I'm still working it out, but in an attempt to not be spammy, the bot won't comment if it doesn't have anything to add to the conversation.
Basically the flow that is used is, get the title from IMDB, search Can I Stream it, and then parse the results to match where the IMDB id matches the IMDB id in the results or if Can I Stream it has no IMDB id for the entry in the search results, it will try and guess based on the year.
I checked and Black Swarm did match the IMDB link you posted, but it's only available for DVD purchase according to Can I Stream it, and currently, I leave out Cable and DVD. I am planning on working it out so that if there is little information, it will include Cable and DVD, but for now, it's limited to Streaming, Rental, or Digital Purchase
For The Picture of Dorian Gray, the 1916 version with IMDB id tt0228718 doesn't even come up in the Can I Stream it search results, so it's excluded from the comment.
I think the thing that makes the most sense is to comment that there are no results when the bot is summoned, just so the user is aware. For comments on posts though, I would leave this out, since it would be unsolicited and wouldn't really be helpful.
Sorry for the long comment, but just wanted to be verbose about the logic. I like seeing these real world use cases, and am collecting them for further testing in development.
Oh you poor lost soul.
It is without doubt one of the best animated movies ever made.
I have not watched anything on Crackle recently, however I do a lot of searching on Can I Stream It (which includes Crackle as one of their sources) so it is still on my radar.
Use this: http://www.canistream.it/
It will at least tell you where something is, and how much it costs if it's not available on any of the streaming services. If it's not on anything for free chances are it's available for purchase or rent. At that point you can decide if you want to acquire it by other means, legal or not.
I don't see it being available on Netflix in the US (or anywhere else on Can I Stream It?, for that matter). Just check the movie length--the original cut is 113 minutes (1 hour 53 minutes) long, whereas the director's cut is 133 minutes (2 hours 13 minutes) long.
I always check http://www.canistream.it/ first. Then I know where I can get it without going through a bunch of different programs. Most of the stuff I want to watch is on netflix, and sometimes I have to rent it from amazon. Works out.
You might look into http://trakt.tv/
I haven't really used it much, but my girlfriend uses it all the time to keep track of her shows. There are apps for Android and iOS as well.
Edit: On second thought I'm not sure if this would necessarily help you, this is going to keep track of when episodes are released on television, not really Amazon/Netflix.
Edit2: Maybe this? http://www.canistream.it/ You can search for what you want to stream, and if it's not available, set it up to notify you when it IS available on specific platforms (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) I don't know if you can only do specific episodes or if there is the ability for an ongoing thing. Might be one to look into though.
I feel like a zomromcom like Warm Bodies would be perfect, but unfortunately it's on disc only right now.
Until it is on streaming, I'd go with the person who recommend Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Absolutely. She taped an episode of Fashion Police just a couple days before she went in to the hospital.
People also forget that she used to host the tonight show from time to time.
Today is as good as any day to go back and watch "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work", her documentary. It's a really amazing doc, for those who haven't seen it.

I can't find it on CanIStream.It but you can buy and download it from /merchandise for $10.99. I hope it shows up on Amazon Prime or Netflix for streaming. It's on Netflix for DVD rental (or reservation for when it is released at end of August).
Love this show. Shame the aspect ratio is off. Shame it's not on a streaming service.

It is currently available through Netflix and several rental services.
>and you don't need to deal with 5 different services before you find the one that actually HAS the item you're wanting to watch.
Fucking here here. I hate playing http://www.canistream.it/ bingo.
Looks like it's only available for purchase. No (legit) streaming, no rental. Check with /r/BestOfStreamingVideo to see if it's available via shadier streaming sites.
Are you looking to catch up or new ones? I can't imagine it'd be shown anywhere public/non-ticketed given the amount of nudity. You can buy older episodes on Vudu, Amazon, or iTunes.
Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but canistream.it might be of interest as well. It can be useful for finding the best service to watch a specific TV show or movie. It's similar to yidio in many ways, but free and probably less sophisticated.
Interesting idea. From a quick glance, it looks like you can search Netflix for certain titles via its REST API:
What I would do (if you want this feature now) is to create a simple program that removes CP movies or SB shows (via their APIs) that are found in Netflix. Maybe even send you an email for the stuff that you had in CP/SB that was found in Netflix.
*Edit: actually if you are having any issues with the Netflix API, or want to try something a little different, it looks like CanIStreamIt has an API as well (I didn't see this documented anywhere, so not sure how good support would be for it, but it looks simple):
Then you can grab the _id field from that, and use it in this query:
Should be an easy way to tell (in an automated way) whether or not something can be streamed. The only thing that adds ambiguity is the search by "movie title", which can bring back multiple results. However, at least on CISI, there's an imdb URL that you can look at to match it up to a CP movie.
I would wait until the first episode aired, then check a website like Canistream.it and search for the second season through there. Amazon may have it as I think they added season 1 to the Prime Instant Video library. I don't know about Hulu though. I would like to know a way to see what will be available on Hulu too.
You can watch the documentary about Doss and his life on Youtube for $1. It used to be streaming on Netflix, and that's where I saw it. Not to be missed.
I use Can I Stream It to find streamable movies. (They have an iPhone and Android app) The results say it's purchasable on the Sony Network and that's it.
If I Google it, it comes up, but I am not sure how trustworthy the sites that are hosting it are.
You can only get HBO with the HBO GO service. You will need subscription through a cable provider for that. Netflix does have some AMC shows, take inventory of what shows you watch on AMC and then use this website to figure where you can get the content: http://www.canistream.it/
Here are your options. Look at that. $3 to rent it from Amazon, right now. How about that? You found a problem. Now you found a solution. Tahhh daaaahhhh
Sorry, my bad, I was thinking Captain America. I guess the main thing is to check out canistreamit.
I also agree there is a huge dropoff, but the main point is they're working on it. It only helps that they signed that deal with Epix.
Sadly it's not streaming anywhere, but you can watch it on all the major services for 2.99.
