What’s Leaving Netflix in July 2019

Goodbyes are never easy, but at least in this case, saying goodbye to the nine movies below means you have a good excuse to blow off your weekend plans and catch up on Netflix before they fall off the streaming service. Keanu Reeves and his Matrix trilogy aren’t going to be around (well, on Netflix) forever, you know? As we dive directly into summer, take a break and catch a trip to Aspen. Or maybe get lost in a maze with a dude that has eyes in his hands. Yeah… different strokes for different folks.
New Line Cinema
Dumb and Dumber (July 1)
You can’t triple stamp a double stamp, and after July 1, you can’t go home and watch Dumb and Dumber on Netflix when someone quotes you that line. The ’90s classic about two full blown idiots on a road trip to Aspen is comedic perfection, so take it in while you can.
New Line Cinema
Pan’s Labyrinth (July 1)
Guillermo del Toro outdid himself with this mid-century horror-fantasy film. Set in Nazi-occupied Europe, the most interesting parts of Pan’s Labyrinth are it’s fantastical elements as a young girl named Ofelia is drawn into a maze and faces creatures beyond her imagination.
Silence of the Lambs (July 1)
It puts the lotion on the skin or else it gets the hose again! Silence of the Lambs is the perfect thriller/horror mix (and one of the very few to land Academy Awards). Often noted as one of the greatest horror films in history, Jodie Foster pulls out all the stops against Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill.
The Boondock Saints (July 1)
Well before he was Daryl on The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus was Murphy—one half of the brother duo in The Boondock Saints, who go full Catholic vigilante on the streets of Boston. But even if you’re taking out the bad guys with good intentions, the FBI doesn’t see murder as a “net positive.” Catch it before it falls off your Netflix queue.
The Matrix (July 1)
Not only is The Matrix on its way out, but so is the entire franchise. Essentially, if you’ve been putting off a full Matrix binge, now is the time. How else are you going to stay fresh on discussions about red pills and blue pills? Keanu Reeves and his slow motion back bends are waiting on you.
Wedding Crashers (July 1)
You don’t realize it at first, but Wedding Crashers actually has a super stacked cast. Past Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, you have Rachel McAdams, Bradley Cooper, and a surprisingly funny Jane Seymour. (Kitty Kat!) Catch up on the age old art of crashing weddings and remember that giant poster of wedding crashing rules you once had on your dorm room wall.
Cool Hand Luke (July 1)
No one looks as cool as Paul Newman in 1967’s Cool Hand Luke—sorry, we don’t make the rules. The film is set after Newman’s character Luke is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm. But a couple years and shitty company doesn’t keep Luke down. The title applies: no one captures cool like Paul Newman.
Bull Durham (July 1)
A Kevin Costner baseball movie should sell you on its own, but just in case you need more information: Bull Durham is the best baseball film of all time. It also stars Susan Sarandon as a devoted Bulls fan.
Lion (July 9)
You get an extra week or so with Lion, and that’s all the better because it’s a tearjerker. Dev Patel stars as an adopted son who returns to his home country of India with limited information about his family. But that doesn’t stop him from scouring the whole damn country for the past he was torn away from. Also Nicole Kidman has some seriously insane wigs.
