These Five Shows Are Leaving Netflix Starting Next Month. Watch Them Now
Can you believe that 2021 is already past its halfway mark? The days, weeks, and months seem jumbled and melded at the same time. They go by so fast that you probably don’t remember what you did at the start of the year anymore. Nonetheless, we keep on moving forward and accepting that everything around us is changing.
Speaking of change, have you checked out your Netflix recently? Since the vaccine’s distribution, we all know that many people have begun to get vaccinated and go back to the outside world. Because of this, people’s streaming accounts may be going a bit idle. What’s more, some users don’t know that Netflix changes its collection of films and shows monthly.
Once they log back in, there’s a possibility that the series or movies they liked won’t be available anymore. That is why I’m now letting you know that these shows and many others are leaving Netflix very soon. So you better watch all of them before they all get axed this September and maybe depart from the streaming service for good.
Inuyasha: The Movie series (2001-2004)
If you’re not familiar with Inuyasha, it’s an anime that came out in the early 2000s. The show revolves around Inuyasha, a half-human and half-demon boy, and Kagome, a regular Japanese girl. Their mission is to find and rebuild the shattered and scattered pieces of the magical artifact called The Jewel of Four Souls. They battle demons, monsters, and even rival family members in their quest to restore the gem and keep it safe from evil.
Now, Inuyasha’s first season ran from 2000 to 2004. During its run, the studio also made four movies. These films weren’t precisely canon to the main storyline of the anime. But they had a ton of battle and fan service scenes for the viewers. So, if you’re a fan of Inuyasha or anime in general, then go binge-watch these movies before they get released by Netflix.
Love Actually (2003)
The holidays are just four months away, and I’d like to think that everyone is excited to get some happiness and cheer back in their lives. So, gathering together with your families and friends while doing your custom holiday practices is a must. One such common tradition during those good times is watching Christmas or holiday-themed movies.
Personally, the best movies to watch are Die Hard or Elf, but another good one is Love Actually. Richard Curtis directed the 2003 film. The cast is an ensemble of primarily British actors that have worked with Curtis before. The movie is about the different facets of love shown through the lives and experiences of ten individuals during and around the holidays.
It was a box office success when it came out, and it even garnered some award nominations. I know that Christmas is still far away, but this movie is only available on Netflix until next month. So, watch it now and celebrate the holidays a bit early.
Do you sometimes find yourself reminiscing about your high school days, wishing that you did things differently? I do, and if I could go back in time to change it, it would probably look something like the events in Superbad. This movie, in my opinion, is one of the classics in the coming-of-age genre. It even brought about the legendary name McLovin’.
Superbad came out fourteen years ago, in 2007. With the help of producer Judd Apatow, Greg Mottola directed the film with great success. What I didn’t know before was that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the story. They based it on their own experiences in high school back in the ’90s.
The story is about Seth and Evan, two best friends who needed to supply a ton of alcohol for a party so that they could lose their virginity before going to college. Unfortunately, their mission gets a bit complicated when one gets involved with two awkward police guys. So, if you haven’t seen this film yet or you just want to watch it again for the laughs, now is the best time to see it on Netflix.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
You’ve probably heard of the term cult classic or cult following. For those who don’t know what it means, it’s a term that describes a renowned movie to a specific group of people. It’s a pretty common thing that happens in the world of cinema, so no one bats their eyes if a new one comes up.
But have you ever heard of a film that created an actual religion? The religion is called Dudeism, and it takes its philosophy and teachings from the 1998 film, The Big Lebowski. It’s got a great cast with Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and Julianne Moore.
The story revolves around Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, a chill stoner who loves his White Russian drinks and bowling. Unfortunately, he gets swept up into a huge mess when he gets mistaken by a bunch of goons for Jeffrey Lebowski, a wealthy philanthropist who’s also known as The Big Lebowski. If that got you interested in seeing the film, you should do it soon because it’ll leave Netflix’s roster by the end of this month.
The Manchurian Candidate (2004)
In a world where everyone has problems with their government, we could only wish for our lives to be like a political movie where corrupt and selfish politicians get their just desserts. But, sadly, that is not the case. At the very least, we could still watch these kinds of films on our favorite streaming services. An excellent example of such is The Manchurian Candidate.
The Manchurian Candidate, made in 2004, is based on the novel by Richard Condon. The movie adaptation is a revised version of the original 1962 film of the same name. The writers of this movie had to change critical details for it to have significance with its release period.
The story is about veterans Major Bennett Marco, played by Denzel Washington, and Raymond Shaw, played by Liev Schreiber, and the unraveling of their forgotten experiences during the Gulf War. It has themes of politics, xenophobia, sleeper agents, and assassination. I won’t add further details to avoid spoiling you and because it’s much better if you watch it for yourself. So, do that now while it’s still available on Netflix.
Bonus Movie: The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
Surprise! Here’s a bonus movie recommendation. If you’re a fan of romance and science fiction movies, then you might want to check The Time Traveler’s Wife. The film is based on the 2003 novel by author Audrey Niffenegger. Although it had mixed reviews, it was still successful with over a hundred million dollars worldwide.
The Time Traveler’s Wife is about the complicated relationship between Henry De Tamble, a librarian from Chicago who discovers that he has a unique gene that allows him to time travel randomly, and Clare Abshire, a girl that meets Henry during one of his time adventures that eventually becomes his wife.
Similar to the world around us, Netflix is ever-changing. It can’t always keep every movie or TV show in its collection due to buying rights and expiration of contracts. That’s why it’s good practice to check Netflix from time to time. Or better yet, visit our website and read our articles. So that you know if your favorite films and series will be leaving Netflix next month.
