What are the best movies on Netflix coming in February 2017? What favorites are leaving? Following is a list of what’s gone (though likely only temporarily) and added for this month.
February 1 saw the addition of a handful of noteworthy films, such as Babe and its sequel Pig in the City, Corpse Bride, and the Nemo sequel Finding Dory, but that’s not everything popular added as of Wednesday.
- From This Day Forward: A Trans Love Story
- Magic Mike
- Paris is Burning
- Silver Streak
- The Blair Witch Project was a breakthrough in the horror genre, with many copycats on the market. It’s arguable that Paranornal Activity wouldn’t have existed without it.
- The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe was the first of a series based on the children’s novels by C.S. Lewis. The Silver Chair is expected to release in theaters this year, marking the fourth based on a seven book series.
- The Longest Day
- The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of Tim Burton’s most loved classics. Jack Skellington travels between Halloween- and Christmas-themed worlds in a variety of musical numbers and eventually creates a common ground between them.
- Twilight kickstarted one of the arguably worst film series ever made, featuring Kristen Stewart in the role which earned her the general consensus that she can’t act. A film added later this month may have proven that image wrong.
- Girls Lost was a Swedish film which tackled the controversy of gender identity within a year after we’d first heard of Caitlyn Jenner. Three young girls plant a special flower with a nectar which transforms them into boys overnight. At least one of them ends up preferring the change, reports Vulture.
- Girls Asleep
- David Brent: Life on the Road
- The Act of Acting: Clouds of Sils Maria
- Code: Debugging the Gender Gap
- King Cobra
- White Knights
- Sausage Party was one of Seth Rogen’s most unconventional films yet, taking the animated film and making it strictly for adults with a crude sense of humor. It features the animated hijinks of a grocery store’s edible products, which don’t yet know what happens when they are “chosen.” The horror they witness when a group of them reach a residence turns out to be a rude awakening.
- Michael Birbiglia: Thank God for Jokes
Life Hacker reports that many Netflix movies are leaving as well.
- An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky
- An Inconvenient Truth was former Vice President Al Gore’s attempt to educate the world about the dangers of global warming. It helped spawn a debate on whether the phenomenon is actually real, and it is still up for discussion as the sequel is set to arrive.
- Black Hawk Down was an Oscar-winning film, and the people in charge claim were robbed of its box-office success due to online piracy.
- Bratz: Babyz: The Movie
- Bratz: Super Babyz
- Charlotte’s Web 2: Wilbur’s Great Adventure
- Clerks was the film that made Kevin Smith and his characters Jay and Silent Bob a cult classic powerhouse. It may have also paved the way for him to direct episodes of TV shows featuring DC Comics heroes and villains.
- Failure to Launch
- Girls Just Want to Have Fun
- Jackass 2.5
- Lalaloopsy Girls: Welcome to L.A.L.A. Prep School
- Last Holiday
- Mission: Impossible III was arguably one of the weakest films in the franchise, even though it starred Tom Cruise and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman at their best.
- Save the Last Dance
- Serving Sara
- Star Trek: Nemesis was one of the reasons why the franchise needed a reboot. The crew are summoned to Romulus to negotiate a peace treaty. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis) finally get married, and Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Data (Brent Spiner) discover their “evil” doubles.
- The Kite Runner
- The Machinist
- The Original Latin Kings of Comedy
- There Will be Blood
- What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
- Justin Bieber’s Believe
- Grounded for Life: Season 1 – Season 5
- Scary Movie 5 was the final, and arguably worst, film in the franchise, notorious for using Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan during both of their low points in the entertainment industry.
- The Nut Job
- Brothers in War
- Chris Porter: Ugly and Angry
- Exile Nation: The Plastic People
- Jack Frost
- I Am Not a Hipster
- Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
- Prince of Broadway
- Stephanie in the Water
- The Man on Her Mind
- Unlikely Animal Friends: Season 2
- Santa Claws
- Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year
- Problem Child: Leslie Jones
- Clueless featured Alicia Silverstone in one of her most loved roles of all time, as a rich high school beauty queen attempting to make a “new girl” popular.
