Five Netflix Movies to Watch Today As The Streaming Provider Removes And Adds Films
Every month films are added and removed from your Netflix cue. This is always something that annoys Netflix viewers as they are forced to watch films before they leave the cue and add new ones to watch. Here is a list of the best five films leaving and the best five being added.
Goodbye to these Films
Alexander Payne's "Election" is one of the most revered films of the late 90s and it set in motion the career of Reese Witherspoon. The film continues to be timely particularly in year's election season and this a major reason to watch before it leaves the cue.
2. The LadyKillers
This may not be Joel and Ethan Coen's best film but any film by the Coen brothers is worth watching. The Coen's have a way with comedy like no other filmmakers. This film sees Tom Hanks in one his best roles in the early 2000s and it definitely captures some genuine laughs.
The Oscar winning film from Poland is a definite must see. Having won the Best Foreign Language category in 2014, this is a devastating tale about a nun who has a hard time finding where she belongs in the world.
4. Run and Jump
This comic gem starring Will Forte was perhaps one of the most underappreciated film to be released in 2014. With a refreshing and lively tale, this is a feel good film for the whole family.
5. Black Hawk Down
Ridley Scott is one of the most iconic directors of his time and this 2001 epic gave him his second nomination for Best Director. Filled with documentary style action sequences, this is one of the most visceral experiences to portray modern day war.
Films Added to Netflix
This 1998 film saw the debut feature of Gary Ross, one of today's most sought after directors. The film tells the story of two 1990s teenagers who find themselves in a 1950s sitcom and their life begins to change. Nominated for three Academy Awards, this is one of the most iconic films of the late 90s.
2. The Keeping Room
In 2014, this thriller surprised at Sundance but unfortunately never got a big enough release to see mainstream success. Now on Netflix, this film will likely get more exposure and likely a bigger following. The film tells the story of three Southern women who must fight to defend their home and themselves from two rogue soldiers who have broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army.
For anyone who grew up with the books, this adaptation of R.L. Stine's novels was one of the biggest surprises of 2015. Not only was it well received by critics but audiences embraced it. As a result, it became a huge box office success.
4. Great Expectations
For all those curious in seeing Alfonso Cuaron's adaptation of Charles Dicken's great novel, this is the time to see it. While it is not considered a great film, it is always a curiosity to see what the great director did with the source material.
5. To Catch a Thief
Anything by Alfred Hitchcock is a must see and this film with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly is one of his most delightful films. It may not be considered one of his masterpieces but it is sure a pleasure to watch the master of suspense at his most comic and romantic.
