Netflix: 15 Best Movies And TV Shows To Watch Before They Leave In May

The Hurt Locker

7. The Hurt Locker

Best Picture was only one of the six Oscars that The Hurt Locker scooped up after its release in 2008, and it's not hard to see why. This war epic is based on the personal experiences of journalist Mark Boal, and follows an elite Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team during the Iraq war, chronicling their personal issues against the backdrop of the work that they have to do.

The Cheetah Girls

5. Cadet Kelly

Cadet Kelly

Cadet Kelly is just one of the many more Disney Channel family movies that are leaving this month, a list which also includes Camp Rock, Frenemies, Geek Charming, Lemonade Mouth, and several others. Cadet Kelly stars Hillary Duff as Kelly, a young, creative, cool girl who is sent to military school - and has to adjust to life there, which is very different to her old life in Manhattan. Predictable heartwarming stuff, which is exactly what anyone would expect from a Disney TV movie.

Leaving: May 2

4. Teen Spirit

Teen Spirit ABC

It's not just Disney made-for-TV family films leaving Netflix this month. Several ABC family movies are also on the way out, so catch your favorite teen cheese while you still can! Teen Spirit is the ABC take on the standard high school makeover movie, with an afterlife twist. Instead of teen boys taking bets on which 'ugly' girl they can transform, this one puts the job on the shoulders of recently deceased mean girl Amber (Cassandra Scerbo), who must earn her way into Heaven by making a geek into a Prom Queen.

Leaving: May 2

3. The Secret Life Of The American Teenager

For those who prefer their teen drama in series format, rather than made-for-TV movies, it's also time to say goodbye to The Secret Life Of The American Teenager. This family-friendly drama centers on Amy (Shailene Woodley), a high school student dealing with an unplanned pregnancy.

2. To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newman

To Woo Fong Thanks For Everything

Fans of cult classic Priscilla, Queen of the Desert may have already heard of To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newman - another cult drag queen movie in a similar style. To Wong Foo stars Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguizamo as stars of New York's drag scene on a road trip to Hollywood. When their car breaks down in a small town, however, things start to get very interesting - and create a phenomenal cult classic road trip flick in towering high heels.

1. Chappie

Chappie in Chappie

This is definitely not a film that will ever make the lists of the classics, but for Die Antwoord fans looking for a ridiculous film about a robot gangster, Chappie is the way to go. This movie takes place in a version of Johannesburg where crime is dealt with by robots, and when one AI is kidnapped by gangsters, it learns about love... and how to rob banks.
