Hey does anyone know of any animes worth renting?Something along the lines of scifi or action or anything serious.And also movies not series.

Well, in general I prefer series for the character development. That said, a few that I watch pretty frequently:

Anything by Miyazaki, they are enjoyed by people of all ages. You should probably watch "Princess Mononoke" first, given that you want something more serious and action-y.

Perfect Blue, if you like Hitchcock. It's a psychological thriller.

Read Or Die. There's a single disc OAV and a series. A bit like western superhero shows in that there's a few people with special powers and they need to stop a big enemy. Very creative though and the action is good.

Huh, I can't remember which single-shot movies I own. Sorry! If I think of more I'll append, or perhaps the rest of the board can help.

Word of warning: a lot of great movies coincide with a series - either they are a retelling (like Escaflowne and X) that won't be as good as the series itself, or an extension (like FMA: The Movie and Neon Genesis Evangelion movies) that won't make sense without watching the series first. Be careful of those when renting.

Please, please, please try to actually check the board and see if there are already any threads about what you want instead of creating a new one for your single question.
