Seeking French Comedies / Why Is Netflix Searching So Bad?

Can you recommend additional titles that are available on Netflix, either on disc or streaming? [more inside]

Several friends and myself were sitting around draining the worlds supply of beer at the end of last summer, and decided to cap off the night by flipping on netflix.

Replacement for Lost Netflix Page

Netflix used to have a page that listed all of the new videos that were coming out that week in all categories. Sadly, that page seems to be no more. What is a good online replacement, a site that lists what new items are coming out on DVD that week, particularly in the foreign film and documentary categories?
