While next month will see a number of great movies arriving on Netflix, it will also see more than a few must-see films vanish. Here are the movies leaving Netflix in September 2016 that you need to catch before they’re gone.

Here’s a true win-win situation. Director Steven Soderbergh, whose latest (last?) film Behind the Candelabra premieres May 26 on HBO, has taken to the web to do some good. He’s launched a site called Extension 765 where you can buy original props from films like Ocean’s Eleven, Ché, Traffic and Erin Brockovich with all proceeds going to the Children’s Aid Society of New York. He’s also selling his original photography, many of which are tests from the same films, also for the charity.
Everything is rather pricey, of course, but you’d get a one-of-a-kind item while also doing some good. Read More »

Editor’s Note: After Turner Classic Movies released their list of the 15 Most Influential Classic Movies, some people were complaining that no films were included from the last 32 years. I joked on Twitter that I would like to see a list of the ten most influential films of the last ten years, and Brendon jumped at the opportunity to create such a list. The idea is to predict what ten films from this decade would be looked at as influential in 20 years. The task is ridiculous, because its hard to predict the long term effects of the films that were released in the last decade (especially ones released in the last couple years), but Brendon did a pretty good job. It should be noted that Brendon’s list is more skewed towards advances in filmmaking and storytelling which influenced and changed the future of cinema, rather than movies that influenced the culture.
Are these the ten most influential films of the last ten years? I think they might just be. Disappointingly, I really don’t like four of them. I’ve also cheated and only included English language films.
The full list will come after the break, and then after that will come the comments section for your contributions.

Have you even heard of the movie? Didn’t think so.
Yet John Ford’s film somehow won 5 Oscars including Best Picture. But what’s more shocking: It beat out such classic films as Citizen Kane and The Maltese Falcon for the top honor. (Note: I’m not saying that Ford’s film is a bad movie. I’m just saying that in terms of reviews, user ratings, and all time-top 10 lists, it’s not to the level of Kane and Falcon)
How can that be? As it turns out there are a lot of movies that should have won Best Picture but somehow didn’t. Some of them weren’t even nominated!
Let’s take a look at the list.
