In Movies & TV

Last call for "Jaws," James Bond and more on Netflix in May

Summer is pretty much here, but a whole mess of movies won't be – at least on Netflix, that is.

The Big Red Streaming Monolith announced its monthly list of departures today, and it is not insignificant! Oscar favorites "Dances with Wolves," "The English Patient" and "Chocolat" are all out of luck in May, while critical darlings "Eternal Sunshine" and the wine doc "Somm" will get wiped off the service, as well.

Joining those films melting away like a Popsicle in the summer heat are the superhero adaptation "Watchmen," the Americanized monster movie "Godzilla" (the first one) and the iconic coming-of-age comedy "Sixteen Candles" will all get the axe as well.

Oh, and also "West Side Story," "Jaws," "The Dirty Dozen" and just about all of its Bond movies ("Dr. No," "From Russia with Love," "On Her Majesty's Secret Service") which I believe accounts for approximately 87 percent of Netflix's supply of movies made before 1980. But what good are old films for, anyways – other than to promote newer films actually available in one's increasingly limited catalogue via a Twitter thread.

Worth noting: Netflix has a combined one film from those two directors! (It's Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train," and it's rather good; watch it while you can!)

Anyways, here's the full list of movies and television shows leaving Netflix. (And for the full list of movies and TV shows arriving on the streaming service, click here.)
