One thing that Netflix seems to have learned in recent months is that it’s smarter to backload the month with all of its departures so that we all have time to watch them before they vanish for good. For example, this month, nearly half of the content departing the service will do so on February 29th, and nothing at all is leaving from the 1st to the 10th. So, at the very least, you’ve got plenty of time to decide when you’re going to watch what.
Some of the movies worth watching before they leave include District 9, Lincoln, and 50/50. The entire Matrix trilogy is also being taken off the streaming service, so if you want to catch up before The Matrix 4 hits theaters next year, this might be a good time to refresh your memory of the first three movies.
Here are the ten best movies and shows Netflix is dumping next month, and the date on which they will be dumped. If you don’t watch them before then, you might never get to see them on Netflix at all:
- District 9 | February 14th
- Milk | February 15th
- Gangs of New York | February 19th
- Lincoln | February 20th
- Trainspotting | February 28th
- 50/50 | February 29th
- Hustle & Flow | February 29th
- Stripes | February 29th
- The Matrix | February 29th
- Up in the Air | February 29th
