Jonathan Marlow from GreenCine was considerate enough to drop me a line after my recent comments on Netflix and Wal-Mart. He pointed out that GreenCine offers an unlimited 2-DVDs-out-at-a-time rental plan for $15.95 per month. That, combined with their unchallenged selection (they carry Eraserhead, which I tried to order from the David Lynch site but never received, and that in and of itself is a huge plus), make them a worthy competitor in the DVD rental market. I'll give them a whirl, either before or just after my trip to France, to see how they compare.
It's pronounced "green scene." Makes sense to me. I still can't get used to Zagat, though, as "ze gat." Sounds like an American impersonating a French person saying "the cat."
