This was the original way it was built but with the slight delay when opening the menu, it seemed more confusing to support this. We’ll re-evaluate.

I'd love to have my watchlist remind me when movies are about to be released (theaters and/or DVD). I'll take email reminders, but if you could set up a calendar (ical?) that would be amazing. Bonus for notifications for watchlist films becoming available on Netflix.
A lot there, but a button (optionally defaulted) for email reminders for watchlist movies would be pretty handy.
