Netflix Movie Removal List for April 2015
As usual, Netflix will be releasing a bunch of new titles come next month – and we’re looking forward to them. However, there is always the flipside, which is what we like to call the “Netflix movie removal list”.
There are going to be a lot we’re going to miss, but here are the most important (in our book) ones that you may want to watch in the next week or so.
Netflix movie removal list – April 1
No, it’s not an April Fools’ Day joke.
Les Miserables (1935)
Victor Hugo’s classic is known to practically everyone, and even those who haven’t read the book has seen the movie – either the more recent version or the “original” one.
I don’t know about you, but most people would agree that the 1935 movie is much better, so watch it before it disappears from Netflix.
Friday the 13th (1980)
Friday the 13th is a favorite amongst fans of the horror/thriller genre, so much so that it has extended to eight parts. All of these are available on Netflix till April 1.
- Friday the 13th: Part 2 (1981)
- Friday the 13th: Part 3 (1982)
- Friday the 13th: Part 4: The Final Chapter (1984)
- Friday the 13th: Part 6: Jason Lives (1986)
- Friday the 13th: Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
The Karate Kid (1984)
Kids of the 80s learned a lot of lessons while watching Mr. Miyagi train Daniel – there is more to martial arts than fighting, etc. It’s always nice to go back to the movie, although I can’t really say the same for the sequels. Come to think of it, I don’t even really remember much of the other two movies! (Maybe that’s a good reason to watch them before Netflix deletes them from the catalogue.)
- The Karate Kid Part II (1986)
- The Karate Kid Part III (1989)
Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
Perhaps the best movie in this list, Good Morning, Vietnam is a must watch. The story revolves around a radio jockey stationed in Vietnam during the war, where he doesn’t exactly play along with the rules. The soundtrack is the icing on the cake.
So Coneheads is a pretty stupid movie, but it’s something that you and your friends can put on on a slow night. With the right company, a bit of booze, and finger food, you’ll get some laughs at these aliens who are, well, coneheads.
Get Shorty (1995)
What happens when a mobster leaves his comfort zone to go to Hollywood to collect a debt? Well, he gets sucked into the world of movie making, and he learns a thing or two. Get Shorty is a hilarious movie with excellent actors, so make sure you catch it before April.
The Whole Nine Yards (2000)
Mobster hitman moves into suburbia. Right in the middle of the lives of good, quiet people. What can go wrong? Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry aren’t exactly the first duo to come to mind, but this movie can be fun and doesn’t require brain juice.
