Classics, hidden gems and must-watch tv, oh my!
Let’s look at 4 of the best properties that Netflix will sadly be dropping, or happily be adding, come August 2018.
“Sausage Party” (2016)
Leaving: August 23rd, 2018
If you’re a fan of the woefully limited genre of “raunchy R-rated 3D animated comedies”, we’ve got some bad news for you. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s star-studded adult comedy about anthropomorphised food is officially heading to Netflix’s compost bin. The good news is… you’ve got until August 23rd to watch it. So if you want to see food have an orgy, see what sort of damage an angry douche can cause, or feel guilty about eating pretty much any kind of food, you’ve still got time to get your fill of Sausage Party! Just be sure to wait until the kids (or your parents) have gone to bed.
“The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (2005)
Leaving: August 16th, 2018
Considering his filmography, it can be easy to forget that back in 2005 Steve Carell was a relative unknown. The first season of “The Office” had only debuted a few months prior and his film career was limited to supporting roles. And then he came along with this starring role, in a film https://jetfilmizle.info he co-wrote, no less. Carell is in good company alongside the likes of Seth Rogen (him again!), Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks, but as the titular virgin, Andy Stitzer, Carell steals the show. Unfortunately, you’ve only got until August 16th to re-watch it, which is when it exits Netflix stage left alongside a lesser-known Carell comedy, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”.
“The Good Place” (2016-), Season 2
Coming: August 28th, 2018
As cord-cutters who prefer to wait for things to land on Netflix can attest, after binging season 1, it’s been a long and rather impatient wait for season 2 to arrive on the streaming service. For newcomers, here’s the summary: newly deceased Eleanor Shellstrop finds herself in “The Good Place”, a heaven-like afterlife. The thing is… she knows that there’s no way she belongs there. With the life she’s led, she’s got “The Bad Place” written all over her. It’s a wildly inventive premise and Kristen Bell absolutely kills it in the lead role. After a cliffhanger twist ending to season 1, we can’t wait to binge season 2!
“Batman Begins” (2005)
Coming: August 1st, 2018
Bat-fans rejoice! Christopher Nolan’s excellent retelling of the Caped Crusader’s origin story and the first chapter in his critically acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy glides into Netflix August 1st. A gritty and grounded take on the iconic superhero that dives deep into his motivations for becoming Batman, as well as the training that went into preparing him for his one man war on crime, Batman Begins is fantastic ride with serious replay value. Christian Bale plays Bruce Wayne and his night-time alter ego, while Michael Caine, Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy round out the cast in spectacular fashion.
