Some Great Movies Are Disappearing From Netflix Next Month

It’s going to be a down month in January for Netflix in terms of content, with a lot of really great movies expiring and not very many being added. I guess it depends on what you consider to be a “good” movie, but I think we can all agree that it will be very sad to see The Mighty Ducks, Breakfast Club, Happy Gilmore and Tombstone all disappear in the same month. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I suppose last month’s lineup makes up slightly for the quality of content being taken down.

Even worse, there aren’t many good films being added. I mean, Batman & Robin? Shall We Dance? Ok, maybe it’s not all bad; Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is being added if you want to see an amazing Johnny Depp performance. Mean Girls, still a great comedy, is also being added, as is the entire Friends series. And we can’t forget Wayne’s World 2. I also hear Jon Favreau’s Chef is excellent.

A lot of these films are expiring on Jan. 1, so you still have two weeks to get caught up. If you haven’t seen movies like Backdraft or Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, I definitely recommend them. The holidays are just around the corner, so you should have every excuse to sit back and enjoy these movies before they disappear.
