As new series and movies hit Netflix, so too do some old favourites disappear from the streaming platform.
Not anything from their top 10 originals list, of course, but over the next week or so some familiar names will no longer be available for viewing.
During July, Netflix says it will add close to 90 movies to the database, with around 50 titles removed.
Forbes has run through that list, and picked 10 standouts that will be gone by August 1.
We’ve trimmed that down to five, starting with Inglourious Basterds:
Quentin Tarantino has pumped out so many classics, from Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood—but I don’t know if any of them are as entertaining as Inglourious Basterds.
From start to finish, each and every second of Tarantino’s World War II reimagining is packed with drama, with laughs, with gunfire, with Nazis meeting a dismal end. What more could you want from a movie?
Better hurry – this is getting yanked tomorrow (July 21):
Next up is Joaquin Phoenix, before he went full Joker, in Her:
Spike Jonze enjoyed a critically acclaimed career for many years. Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are—the man had a knack for taking movies to a new, interesting place.
But with Her, he seemed to ratchet things up a notch. Packed with killer performances (most notably from Joaquin Phoenix), Jonze’s 2013 film about how we use technology to shelter us from isolation and loneliness has remained pretty relevant and timeless.
You have until July 28:
When you think of war classics, Jarhead might not rank atop your list, but it’s well worth a watch:
Sam Mendes is not a one-genre director. From American Beauty to Skyfall to Road to 1917, the English director has dabbled in just about every genre imaginable.
And he made that loud and clear when he followed up the Tom Hanks period piece Road to Perdition with the Jake Gyllenhaal war drama Jarhead.
This movie thrusts you right into the daily wartime regime by following U.S. Marine Anthony Swofford’s 2003 memoir of the same name.
July 31, it’s a goner:
You know what 2020 is missing, just to really rub our noses in it? A massive monster, akin to Godzilla:
Say what you want about the 1998 version of Godzilla. It’s goofy, it’s chaotic, it’s logically bankrupt. You can definitely choose to knock the film for all of those factors—or you can embrace it.
Personally, I think Godzilla is a fun, wacky ride for the entire 140 minutes…
Also disappearing on July 31:
To finish, here’s one movie that is really three:
Why not sit down and relive all three Back to the Future movies. I know the third one doesn’t have a great reputation, but I personally think all three are worth your time.
And if you can fit them all in at once…all the better! Right?
Watch them back to back, because you’re worth it, and also because they’re off Netflix from July 31:
