Lots of good movies leaving Netflix Instant January 1st photo
Lots of good movies leaving Netflix Instant January 1st
by Nick Valdez

So you like Netflix Instant, right? Prepare to be married to it for the rest of the year. According to Vulture (who spotted a thread on Reddit that keeps track of expiration dates now that Netflix gave that up), lots of notable movies are disappearing from Instant on January 1st, 2014.

Those movies includes favorites like Do the Right Thing, Being John Malkovich, Titanic, Desperado, The Faculty, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Troll 2, and Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot (although I'm the only one that really cares about that one). Although that's a big list, there's a thread on Reddit that also claims we'll be getting other films like Good Burger and f**king Spaceballs, but it's not showing a source. 

Keep an eye on the first Netflix Now of 2014 (January 8th) for that information if anything's confirmed. Until then, start watching folks!

Netflix Now: 2013 Kicked Ass Edition

Given that the next two Wednesdays are major holidays, and I won't be bothered to write things other than my Nick's Flixmas posts during that time, New Releases and Netflix Now are going on a break.  Which means this is ...

Netflix Now: Dig It Uh Oh OHHHH, Dig It Edition

Normally I'd use this space to talk about stuff going on this week, but I can't really think about anything other than Disney's Holes. It was added to Netflix Instant this week, and ever since I had found that out, all I've b...

Netflix Now: First Drones, Then Terminators Edition

Inside the Xbox One Launch Event in LA, is it just games?

Now when anyone thinks of a console launch, they think videogames. That is their primary function, but with technology making everything easier and simpler, consoles do far more than just play games. You can start to see thi...

Netflix Now: Black Thanksgiving Edition

As you in America know, we folks love us some deals. Some of us love the thrill of a cheap deal so much, we're willing to strike each other and act our worst for them. Because most retailers opened at 10PM Thanksgiving to cas...

Netflix Now: Ghostest With the Mostest Edition

Netflix Now: Kim Kardashian's Yeezus Engagement Edition

Netflix Now: The Homestretch Edition

Our 2013 New York Film Festival (NYFF51) coverage is coming to a close at the end of the week, and it feels good to be unburdened. There's a big weight about to be lifted from my shoulders, and it opens up a whole lot of free...

Netflix Now: Ridin' Barbie Edition

They see me rollin' in my Power Wheel, patrolin' they tryin' to catch me ridin' dirty. In a story that won't help folks like Police Cops more, a police officer in Utah recently ticketed a young girl's Barbie Power Wheel as a ...

Netflix Now: Pirates Eat Chicken Buttholes Edition

I know it's Talk Like a Pirate day, but guys and gals, let's just face it: ninjas are way better than pirates. Pirates eat chicken buttholes. The only thing better than ninjas are space cadets with ray guns and jetpacks, but ...

Netflix Now: Billy Ray Cyrus Edition

With Billy Ray Cyrus in the news so much, it made sense to name this week's Netflix Now after him. I find the fallout over this whole Billy Ray Cyrus thing more interesting than the Billy Ray Cyrus performance itself. The exc...

Netflix Now: Zap Rowsdower Edition

Zap Rowsdower is one of the greatest cinematic heroes of all time. More dashing than Robin Hood, more daring than James Bond, and more mulleted than most hockey players of the 1980s. Zap Rowsdower is action incarnate. The nam...
