Off the back of the incredible success of Gladiator, Ridley Scott tried his hand at the war film Black Hawk Down. Led by a team of incredibly popular male actors, who otherwise would normally be the leading men in their own movies, but did an incredible job of portraying what it takes for troops to work under the most extreme pressure in one of the most dangerous scenarios soldiers can find themselves in.

The movie is an annual rewatch for my colleague Kasey, and it’s no doubt as to why. One of the best war movies ever created.


The Cable Guy (1996)

Director: Ben Stiller
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Thriller | Runtime: 96 Minutes
Cast: Jim Carrey, Matthew Broderick, Leslie Mann, Jack Black, George Segal
Leaving Netflix: November 1st, 2023

One of the most eccentric and funniest performances from Jim Carrey; it’s always double the fun to watch him as the primary antagonist.

The synopsis for The Cable Guy has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“When recently single Steven moves into his new apartment, cable guy Chip comes to hook him up—and doesn’t let go. Initially, Chip is just overzealous in his desire to be Steven’s pal, but when Steven tries to end the ‘friendship’, Chip shows his dark side. He begins stalking Steven, who’s left to fend for himself because no one else can believe Chip’s capable of such behaviour.”


Liar Liar (1997)

Director: Tom Shadyac
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy | Runtime: 86 Minutes

The 90s was Jim Carrey’s decade, and he had us all in a chokehold with his comedic quips and full-body eccentricities.


The Losers (2010)

Director: Sylvain White
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy | Runtime: 97 Minutes
Cast: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short
Leaving Netflix: November 1st, 2023

Based on the comic book of the same name by Jock, The Losers is one of the most under-appreciated action comedies of the 2010s.

The synopsis for The Losers has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“A tale of double cross and revenge, centered upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team-Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar -find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda.

Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey are at their acting best in this tense crime drama.

The synopsis for The Negotiator has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“The police try to arrest expert hostage negotiator Danny Roman, who insists he’s being framed for his partner’s murder in what he believes is an elaborate conspiracy. Thinking there’s evidence in the Internal Affairs offices that might clear him, he takes everyone in the office hostage and demands that another well-known negotiator be brought in to handle the situation and secretly investigate the conspiracy.”

One of the most beloved and famous stories from British author Jane Austen, we’ve seen numerous adaptations over the years, and while this adaptation is often compared to the BBC’s 1995 miniseries, the film resulted in four Oscar nominations, including a Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role nomination for Keira Knightley.

The synopsis for Pride & Prejudice has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“A story of love and life among the landed English gentry during the Georgian era. Mr. Bennet is a gentleman living in Hertfordshire with his overbearing wife and five daughters, but if he dies their house will be inherited by a distant cousin whom they have never met, so the family’s future happiness and security is dependent on the daughters making good marriages.”


Steel Magnolias (1989)

Director: Herbert Ross
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance | Runtime: 117 Minutes
Cast: Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Julia Roberts
Leaving Netflix: November 2nd, 2023

A late 80s classic, Steel Magnolias features a powerhouse of a cast such as Forest Gump’s Sally Field, country star Dolly Parton, and a fledgling Julia Roberts, who was only one year away from becoming one of the most popular actresses in the USA.

The movie is a regular on Netflix so we expect it to see it again in the near future.

One more quick thing: if you do plan on swatching Steel Magnolias on Netflix – you’ll need to do so on Netflix’s premium tier, as it’s not available on the ad tier.


Uncle Buck (1989)

Director: John Hughes
Genre: Comedy| Runtime: 100 Minutes
Cast: John Candy, Jean Louisa Kelly, Gaby Hoffman, Macaulay C
Leaving Netflix: November 1st, 2023

The late John Candy and John Hughes pairing made for a true late 80s classic, grossing almost $80 million worldwide on a $15 million budget. Uncle Buck was also the third film for child actor Macaulay Culkin, who went on to become one of the most popular child actors of the 90s.

The synopsis for Uncle Buck has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“Buck Russell, a lovable but slovenly bachelor, suddenly becomes the temporary caretaker of his nephew and nieces after a family emergency. His freewheeling attitude soon causes tension with his older niece Tia, loyal girlfriend Chanice, and just about everyone else who crosses his path.”


The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005-2012)

Despite the overwhelming financial success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the title of best superhero movie of all time is still credited to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. One of the best movie trilogies of the 21st century and one of the most watched on Netflix, we’re sure we’ll see the return of The Dark Knight trilogy on the streaming service in the near future.

The synopsis for Batman Begins has been sourced from Letterboxd:

“Driven by tragedy, billionaire Bruce Wayne dedicates his life to uncovering and defeating the corruption that plagues his home, Gotham City. Unable to work within the system, he instead creates a new identity, a symbol of fear for the criminal underworld – The Batman.”


The Big Short (2015)

Director: Adam McKay
Genre: Comedy, Drama | Runtime: 130 Minutes
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, Christian Bale, Jeremy Strong, Rafe Spall
Leaving Netflix: November 2nd, 2023

A movie centered around a bucket load of information about mortgages and the financial crash of 07-08 should not be an incredibly entertaining and riveting watch. However, The Big Short subverts all expectations and is arguably one of the best and informative comedies of the past ten years.

Also, given Adam McKay has his more recent movie Don’t Look Up streaming and is working on his new one as we speak, there’s no better time for a rewatch.


Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Genre: Crime, Thriller | Runtime: 99 Minutes
Cast: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Chriss Penn
Leaving Netflix: November 2nd, 2023

Quentin Tarantino’s first feature-length movie, Reservoir Dogs is a true 90s cult classic. Its lack of financial success cemented its place as a cult classic and as Tarantino’s springboard for future films such as Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, and more.

The synopsis for Reservoir Dogs has been sourced from Letterboxd;

“A botched robbery indicates a police informant and the pressure mounts in the aftermath at a warehouse. Crime begets violence as the survivors – veteran Mr. White, newcomer Mr. Orange, psychopathic parolee Mr. Blonde, bickering weasel Mr. Pink and Nice Guy Eddie – unravel.”
