I am generally a fan of Netflix, but it was disheartening to see what movies were disappearing from the service come August, especially upon reviewing what would arrive in their stead. A number of good movies, including Face/Off, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, and The Fifth Element, will be leaving. Replacing them? Highlights include Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Season 2. Yes, that’s sarcasm — and sadly, truth. Point being, the additions amount to basically a big pile of garbage compared to what’s leaving.
The complete list of arrivals and departures is here. Expect more and more good content — especially movies — to vacate Netflix.
