8 Movies You Need To See Before You Die
8 Movies You Need to Watch Before They Disappear From Netflix
1. High Fidelity(leaving September 13)
John Cusack is at his best when playing quirky romantics who haven't quite grown up yet. This 2000 dramedy, based on a Nick Hornby novel and co-written by Cusack, is like a perfect first date: It's uniquely fun and funny, features a killer soundtrack, and when it's over, you want to see it again. Plus, in this case, you get to share it with a standout supporting cast that includes:Jack Black, Tim Robbins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Joan Cusack, Lisa Bonet, Sara Gilbert,and a Bruce Springsteen cameo — his first appearance in a film.
2. Anchorman 2(leaving September30)
Sometimes you need a little ridiculous in your life. Thanks to the cult classic status of the originalAnchorman, Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team reassembled in the 2013 sequel to reach new levels of incompetence and cinematic nonsense. No,Anchorman 2is not as good as the original, but it's fun to watch stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner playing on screen together with the likes of: Harrison Ford, Drake, Tina Fey, Jim Carrey, Marion Cotillard, Will Smith, Kirsten Dunst, Vince Vaughn, Liam Neeson, Amy Poehler, and Kanye West.
3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire(leaving September30)
Unlike the disappointing sequel returns ofAnchorman 2, 2013'sCatching Fireis a solid second chapter that many consider to be superior toThe Hunger Games.And whileCatching Firestands on the shoulders of star and Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence as reluctant hero Katniss Everdeen, it's worth revisiting for that fun "twist" in the arena and the very memorablecharacter introductions of Johanna Masonand Finnick Odair brought to life by Jena Malone and Sam Claflin.
4. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa(leaving September30)
As with anything that involvesJackassand its centerpiece Johnny Knoxville, this 2013 film is all about silly, nonsensical pranks that often result in Knoxville's bodily harm. InBad Grandpa, Knoxville is almost unrecognizable as 86-year-old Irving Zisman, who, along with his 8-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) embarks on a road trip on which he and Billy prank dozens of unsuspecting victims. It is mindless, unbelievable, oddly sweet, and also laughable — a perfectly entertaining antidote for a rough work day/week.
5. Saved!(leaving September30)
Long beforeJuno, there wasSaved!, a whip-smart satirical teen comedy in which American Eagle Christian High School student Mary (Jena Malone) loses her virginity, gets pregnant, and becomes an outcast. The 2004 film achieved cult status for its clever satire of organized religion, buoyed by stellar performances by its young cast, including Mandy Moore and Macaulay Culkin.Saved!gets better and better with repeat viewings.
6. The Skeleton Twins(leaving September30)
There is a lot to love about 2014's dramedyThe Skeleton Twins. It pretty much begins and ends with stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader and the fact that the twoSNLalums are not performing any comedic sketches but instead playing flawed, estranged siblings. It's realistically happy-sad, pairs nicely with a bottle of red wine, and is worth the emotional tugs at the heart for a pivotal scene in which Wiig and Hader lip sync to Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."
7. The Wolf of Wall Street(leaving September30)
Yes, this Oscar-nominated drama is basically three hours of Leonardo DiCaprio on an extended and colorful drug trip, peppered with passionate, unwieldy monologues. It's worth watching for several reasons: The compelling first act, the mainstream movie introduction of current in-demand actress Margot Robbie, the Quaalude scene, and to see/ live vicariously through Jon Bernthal's character when he punches Hill's character in the face — an act which director Martin Scorsese asked Bernthal to physically perform during filming.
8. World War Z(leaving September30)
Do you like action? Zombies? Brad Pitt? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions you will enjoy 2013's action thrillerWorld War Z, although beware the PG-13 rating for "for intense frightening zombie sequences, violence and disturbing images." The zombies are indeed scary and scary fast. If the film doesn't leave you questioning how you'd handle a real-life zombie apocalypse, it will have you wondering why Brad Pitt doesn't take on more action roles. He handles that action hero stuff real good.
