You have a week to watch these great movies before they leave Netflix

The clock is ticking.

There's a constant flow of great flicks being added to Netflix. Just last week it quietly added ten movies to its library. However, while it may be putting up some quality additions, there's also a list of excellent flicks getting the boot each month.


So, If you've been meaning to watch any of these flicks listed below, you now have a week to do so. Take a look and check out what's heading off Netflix in May.

Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

Nominated for both the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Beverly Hills Cop was the highest grossing film of year it released.

The comedy stars Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a cop from Detroit who travels to LA to solve the murder of his best friend.


Murphy's role as Foley became one of the most iconic of his career and the film has spawned two sequels in the franchise. The original, however, remains the best of the lot and is still regarded as one of the best comedies over the last few decades.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Over 30 years on from the original Blade Runner, Harrison Ford returned once again for the sequel helmed by Dune director Denis Villeneuve. Ryan Gosling stars as K, a Nexus-9 replicant "blade runner" who uncovers a secret that threatens to destabilize society and the course of civilization.

Despite being widely praised by critics upon its release and winning two Oscars (Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects), Blade Runner 2049 was a box office bomb. However, it remains a modern cult classic and is definitely worth the time of any sci-fi fans.


The Social Network (2010)

The Social Network

This four-time Oscar winning film from David Fincher is leaving Netflix within a week and is ripe for a rewatch. Starring Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, the film follows the creation of the social media site and the various legal battles that followed for a once-close bunch of college students.

1408 (2007)


If you're into creepy thrillers then look no further than this gem. John Cusack stars in this Stephen King adaptation as a paranormal investigator who travels to the fictional Dolphin hotel in New York to investigate the infamous room 1408. After being warned not to enter the room, Cusack's character soon finds himself trapped in a terrifying turn of events.

Among the better-rated Stephen King film adaptations, 1408 was a huge box-office success, garnering nearly 5 times its production budget of $25 million.

Big Daddy (1999)

Despite not being well-received by critics at the time of release, Big Daddy still holds a dear place in a certain generation's heart. King of 90's comedy Adam Sandler stars as a lazy law school grad who adopts a child to impress a girl - the most 90's comedy plot you could ever think of.

Straight from the off you're going to know whether this film is worth a watch or not. With Sandler, you know exactly what you're getting when you sign up.


Lord of War (2005)

Nic Cage stars as an arms dealer being chased down by Interpol agents in this crime drama. There's not much else to say about this flick apart from that it's a solid option and gives an intelligent insight into the US gun trade and the people who profit from it.

Savages (2012)

By no means a classic Oliver Stone flick, but an interesting one nonetheless. Savages stars a star-studded cast of Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Benicio del Toro, Demián Bichir, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and John Travolta.

The plot centres on two marijuana growers who go up against the Mexican drug cartel in order to free their shared girlfriend.
