Even though there are plenty of good new movies, TV shows and stand-up specials coming to Netflix next month, there are also some good titles that will be leaving the streaming service, including a couple favorites among the entire /Film staff. Most of the titles leaving will disappearing on November 1st, giving you a week to watch them, but there are a few that won’t be gone until later in the month.
Check out the list of all the movies leaving Netflix in November 2016 after the jump.
Can’t Hardly Wait
This is certainly one of the best teen comedies to come out of the late 1990s, right along with 10 Things I Hate About You. It’s the timeless tale of a romantically repressed senior (Ethan Embry) who finally gets the guts to tell the girl (Jennifer Love Hewitt) he’s been obsessing about throughout high school that he’s in love with her. But a serious of mishaps at one final graduation bash keep interrupting him as we follow a cavalcade of characters enjoying one last high school party. Seth Green, Lauren Ambrose, Charlie Korsmo, Peter Facinelli all star in the film too, and keep an eye out for an appearance by a young Jason Segel. (Leaving November 1st)
E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
If you haven’t seen one of Steven Spielberg’s best films, also one of the best sci-fi films of all time, you really need to fix that as soon as possible. The movie tells one of the most touching stories of friendship that can exist between a boy and a lost creature from another planet. It’s a story about family, a story about growing up, and a story about the things we do to protect those that we love. It’s one of the most heartfelt movies Steven Spielberg has ever made, and it’s one that the whole family can watch. (Leaving November 1st)
Mel Brooks: Make a Noise
Coming straight from the PBS American Masters series, this feature length documentary takes a look at the incredible career of Mel Brooks. While the man is best known for directing parody films such as Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles, his careers goes way back to the early days of live television where he wrote and performed with icons like Sid Caesar and Carl Reiner. The documentary also dives into Brooks personal life with plenty of commentary from the filmmaker himself, providing fabulous insight into his comedic mind and achievements in entertainment.

You can’t go wrong with a stop-motion animated adventure from those wizards over at LAIKA. Following in the footseps of Coraline and ParaNorman, this is a stunning piece of work with a wholly unique style and unforgettable characters. Plus, the movie has a great voice cast that includes Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan. It’s one of those animated movies you can love just as much as your kids. (Leaving November 1st)
What can we say about Almost Famous that hasn’t already been said several times in our respective lists of our favorite movies of all time? This is Cameron Crowe’s finest film, a story that speaks to anyone who ever loved a band and wished to become part of the wild world of rock and roll. I think what speaks so much to people who love the movie like nearly all of us do at /Film is this job often times makes us all feel like William Miller in this movie. We’re just along for the ride. If you haven’t taken the time to watch this great coming-of-age tale, check it out before it leaves Netflix on November 23rd.
