movies leaving netflix in february 2018

Another month is coming to a close, which means one thing: titles leaving Netflix. Okay, I suppose a new month means other things too, but we’re only going to focus on the TV shows and movies leaving Netflix right now. If the titles below have been sitting in your queue for months (or even years), now is the time to start streaming them, because before you know it, Netflix is going to send them off to live on a farm where all old streaming movies go when they’re run is through.

Below, check out the list of the best TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in February 2018.

honeymoon netflix

Honeymoon

This very creepy horror movie from director Leigh Janiak stars Game of ThronesRose Leslie and Penny Dreadful‘s Harry Treadaway as a newly married couple who go away to a secluded cabin for their honeymoon. Then, everything goes terrible wrong. Leslie’s character begins acting seriously strange, leading Treadaway to wonder just who it is he married. This movie works its way under your skin, descending into existential dread and Cronenbergian body horror. Honeymoon flew a bit under the radar, so if you’ve never seen it, make an effort before it leaves Netflix.

 

the fury netflix

The Fury

The Fury may not be Brian De Palma‘s best movie, but it is the only Brian De Palma movie that features a scene where John Cassavetes explodes. So that’s something. This 1978 thriller focuses on a secret government agency that rounds up children with psychic abilities. Somewhere along the line, a CIA agent played by Kirk Douglas gets involved, as does a telekinetic teen played by Amy Irving. De Palma also made Carrie, the grandmother of all telekinetic teen movies, and while The Fury isn’t nearly as good as that film, it’s still pretty fun.

 

the longest day netflix

The Longest Day

This epic war movie tracks the story of the D-Day landings at Normandy on June 6, 1944, during World War II from several different perspectives. Producer Darryl F. Zanuck assembled several directors (Ken Annakin, Andrew Marton, Bernhard Wicki, Gerd Oswald) to direct various different portions of the film, with a huge ensemble cast that includes John Wayne, Kenneth More, Richard Todd, Robert Mitchum, Richard Burton, Steve Forrest, Sean Connery, Henry Fonda, Red Buttons, Peter Lawford, Eddie Albert, Jeffrey Hunter, Stuart Whitman, Tom Tryon, Rod Steiger and many, many more. This is a big, sprawling, 3-hour epic that any war movie aficionado should see.

 

Enron Netflix

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room 

Alex Gibney‘s detailed, infuriating documentary reveals the rise and fall of Enron, the American energy company that engaged in a massive corruption scandal. The scandal eventually bankrupted the company and destroyed the lives of many employees, and Gibney’s doc strives to explain just how all of this happened. It’s a sobering yet somehow entertaining film, but don’t be surprised if all the blatant corruption on display makes you furious. Thank heavens nothing like this is going on anymore! Oh…wait.

burn notice netflix

Burn Notice: Season 1-7

Alright, I’ll level with you: I’ve never seen Burn Notice. Has anyone seen Burn Notice? I feel like the answer is no, but someone had to be watching this series if it lasted for seven seasons. I’m adding it here because if you, like me, have never seen this show, here’s your last chance to catch it on Netflix! The series stars Jeffrey Donovan as a former CIA spy who is disavowed by his government, and goes on to use his spy training to help others. Also, Bruce Campbell is on the show, so it has to at least be a little entertaining.
