Netflix – Titles leaving in August 2016
Thanks to our friends at The Mary Sue, here’s the list of titles leaving Netflix this August.
Follow the “Continue Reading” below to get the lists and notices of some titles to catch before they’re gone.
Check back tomorrow to get the list of titles coming in August.
Titles to watch before Monday, Aug 1
You’ve got until Sunday to watch a couple of lesser Eddie Murphy movies including “The Nutty Professor” and “A Vampire in Brooklyn.” You’re also on the wire for one of Murphy’s lesser known but very good movies, “Bowfinger,” with Steve Martin, Robert Downey Jr. and Heather Graham. Any movie with the line, “Find me a part for a retarded slave!” gets my money.
“The Best Man” also leaves Netflix. Catch it to see “Empire’s” Terrence Howard and perennial heart throbs Morris Chesnut and Taye Diggs.
Spike Lee’s “Inside Man” leaves August 16th
This one comes highly recommended and stars Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Willem Defoe, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Christopher Plummer. It’s also free of Spike’s usual political leanings, so those not into that can enjoy a straight up heist thriller.
Other Titles of note leaving in August
Drew Barrymore’s revamp of Seventies classic “Charlie’s Angels” is gone August 15th. McG directed with his usual style over substance, but it’s a fun movie with lots of grrrl power and wire fu.
The “Death Note” anime leaves at the end of the month, probably to make way for the upcoming live action adaptation coming from “The Blair Witch” director Adam Wingard as a Netflix exclusive. “Naruto” fans lose two movies the same day.
Somehow “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge” is still on Netflix. Heralded as the “gayest horror movie ever,” it’s worth a watch before it leaves on August 30th.
