You’re bored. I’m bored. When that boredom hits, we all turn to Netflix to fill in the gaps in our days. Unfortunately, they can’t keep every movie up permanently. Some must go. Here are the movies that are leaving this month and whether or not you should race to see them or forget they were ever made.
Movies You Should Actually Watch:
1. Silence of The Lambs (1991)
One of the greatest police procedural/serial killer thrillers ever made. Watch it with a nice bottle of Chianti.
2. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994)
Peak Jim Carrey comedy (besides Dumb and Dumber).
3. Charlotte’s Web (2006)
I dare you to watch this and not cry.
4. District 9 (2009)
Apartheid explained through a sci-fi movie about bug-like aliens? Insane. It’s smart but also…there are enough fights between the humans and bugs to keep you interested.
5. The Firm (1993)
Is it half an hour too long? Is it strange to think of Gene Hackman as a sexual dynamo? Yes and yes. But it’s a great thriller. Also, if you like to watch Tom Cruise running in a suit, this is the movie.
6. The Grandmaster (2013)
Director Wong Kar-wai doesn’t miss. He usually makes the weepy romances, but here he tries his hand at a Hong Kong martial arts action film.
7. The Interview (2014)
Before the pandemic stopped you from going to movie theaters, the North Korean government scared people from going to see this one. Watch it at home before it’s too late!
8. Magic Mike (2012)
It might seem like it’s merely a movie about male strippers (it is). But it’s also a contemporary crime noir in the vein of Cassavetes’ Murder of a Chinese Bookie. Yes, I went to art school. Why do you ask? Also, Olivia Munn is naked in the first scene.
9. The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988)
The punchiest comedy movie of all time. A joke every 30 seconds.
10. The NeverEnding Story (1984)
Relive the magic of your childhood, unless your childhood was bad. This movie will still make you forget all that!
11. Sleepy Hollow (1999)
A solid mix of funny and strange. Tim Burton knows how to make a great horror movie.
12. Spaceballs (1987)
While it’s not my favorite Mel Brooks movie (that title belongs to Blazing Saddles), Star Wars is back in a big way and it’s time someone took the movies down a peg.
13. The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)
Is it as good as the original? Maybe not. But I’d watch Denzel Washington sit in a chair and answer phone calls, which is what he does for most of the movie.
Movies I haven’t seen that I’d definitely check out if I weren’t constantly watching Frasier:
14. The Green Hornet (2011)
15. Paper Year (2018)
16. While We’re Young (2015)
17. Kristy (2014)
18. The Girl With All The Gifts (2016)
19. Just Friends (2005)
20. Nights In Rodanthe (2008)
21. Zathura (2005)
Say “good riddance” to these movies as they disappear from your queue:
22. The Last Airbender (2010)
23. Battle: Los Angeles (2011)
24. Burlesque (2010)
25. Clash of the Titans (2010)
26. Fun With Dick and Jane (2005)
27. Nacho Libre (2006)
28.The NeverEnding Story 2: The Next Chapter (1990)
29. The Patriot (2000)
30. Set Up (2011)
31. The Ugly Truth (2009)
32. The Underworld Series (2003-2009)
