Netflix: 15 Best Movies And TV Shows Leaving In February

As usual, Netflix has a slew of new TV shows and movies coming out in February 2019, but surprisingly, very few are leaving the streaming service. Fans will only have to bid farewell to 16 series and movies in February - although some of them are sure to be missed.

Shaun of the Dead, The Big Lebowski, and Clerks are probably the biggest films to watch before they disappear, though there are plenty of others that will certainly have some devoted fans sad to see them go. The majority of the departing options are movies, as well, with only two series leaving this month, which means there’s still time to binge any personal favorites.

Removing the following movies and TV shows from Netflix's library will only allow the streaming service to spend more money producing original content as well as obtain other movies and TV shows that subscribers may be interested in checking out for the first time.

15. Black Dynamite

A fun parody of the blaxploitation films of the 1970s, Black Dynamite is all about the details. The suits, the soundtracks, the martial arts scenes - it’s all a send-up of the ‘70s. It’s a lot of fun for those viewers who either knew and loved (or knew and hated) the originals, although anyone with some knowledge of the genre will find a few laughs in here. Definitely one for parody-lovers, Black Dynamite even got an animated follow-up (although that’s also not on Netflix at the moment).

Leaving: February 1

14. Bride Of Chucky

Bride of Chucky

Horror fans will be disappointed to learn that Bride of Chucky, the fourth film in the iconic horror series, will be leaving at the start of the month. This departure means that there is only one film featuring the killer doll left on Netflix: 2017’s Cult of Chucky. At least there’s one option for anyone who just can’t get enough of Chucky and his murderous antics!

Leaving: February 1

13. Children Of Men

Clive Owen and Clare-Hope Ashitey in Children of Men

This Oscar-nominated film is definitely worth seeing before it leaves at the start of the month, especially for anyone who is a fan of dystopian futures. Children of Men takes place in a world where the birth rate has dropped to zero, but one woman has discovered that she is miraculously pregnant. Children of Men is not a ‘fun’ film to watch, but somehow manages to lift the spirit while not turning away from the worst of humanity.

Leaving: February 1

12. Clerks

The film that launched Kevin Smith’s career as a director, Clerks is a perfect example of what a great writer can do with a very small budget. Set in a convenience store, Clerks is simple, hilarious, and a must-see for any slackers and job-haters out there. Smith fans don’t have to be too upset at it leaving the streaming service, however, as there are still a few other Smith movies available on Netflix. Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Zack And Miri Make A Porno, Tusk, Holidays, and Yoga Hosers are all still available to be streamed.

Leaving: February 1

11. The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement

Royal Engagement is the follow-up to the hugely popular wish-fulfillment film The Princess Diaries, in which an awkward teen learns that she is actually a princess (and gets a makeover, of course). In The Princess Diaries 2, Mia (Anne Hathaway) is back, and this time, she has to get married in order to become Queen, thus prompting a hilarious (and sweet) search for her Prince. Fans of the original will enjoy this one, although, with The Princess Diaries not currently streaming, there’s no Mia marathon in the offing.

Leaving: February 1

10. Ella Enchanted

Another sweet fantasy film starring Anne Hathaway, Ella Enchanted is a twist on the typical fairy tale. In the movie, Ella has been blessed (or cursed) with magical obedience, and she must go on a journey (along with the obligatory Prince) to discover how she can break this spell and become her own person at last. Definitely a movie for anyone who loves magical escapism, this is sure to appeal to young viewers, as well as anyone who enjoyed it the first time around - when it released in 2004.

Leaving: February 1

9. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft has recently returned to our screens with a Tomb Raider reboot last year, but that’s not available on Netflix. And, as of this month, neither will the original Lara Croft movie, starring Angelina Jolie. Based on the video game of the same name, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is a fun romp through treasure hunting and battle evil, definitely worth the nostalgia rewatch.

Leaving: February 1
