Here’s What’s Leaving Netflix in August

     July 28, 2015


You just thank your lucky stars that I didn’t include a clip of Madonna‘s “Take A Bow,” which would almost certainly cause you to have the song stuck in your head for the next 48 hours. Netflix has announced what will be leaving the streaming service in August, and there are a few gems being thrown out amongst the group. Firstly, there’s John Woo‘s inexplicable action spectacle Face Off, starring Nic Cage and John Travolta, followed-up quickly by The Fifth Element, Luc Besson‘s most bizarre and succesful sci-fi romp to this day (though Lucy comes awfully close). For 80s and 90s nostalgists, some time should be made to revisit a few choice episodes of Family Ties before all seven seasons get the heave-ho. There’s also the dreamy documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi, about a master sushi chef, and Unbreakable, M. Night Shymalan‘s bluesy, exquisite superhero-origins tale. Check out the rest of what’s expiring from Netflix in August below, and plan to play catch-up quick!
