Popular Movies & Shows Leaving Netflix this Summer

Netflix has built a pretty great reputation for putting out quality shows, and hosting a wide range of content that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s also just as famous for cycling out fan favorites, in order to make room for new hits in their catalog. So what’s a viewer to do? By now, you know it’s pretty key to always record your Netflix faves so that you can watch them over and over, or even just watch them on your own time!

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most popular movies and shows that are leaving Netflix this summer. With Replay Video Capture in your toolkit, you can keep all your favorites, without worrying about losing them forever. Even if watching Christmas movies in July is your thing, Replay Video Capture has you in good hands.

What are some of the movies that are making their exit from Netflix this summer? Take a look at our list, make sure to save your favorites!

Wedding Crashers (2005)

via GIPHY

Just in time for wedding season, this summer smash hit is loaded with some of your favorite comic giants. Before Bradley Cooper’s turn in “A Star is Born”, he was Luke Wilson’s douchey rival in this comedy classic for the ages. Vince Vaughn and Wilson are a hilarious duo that make a tradition of crashing weddings to have fun, meet women, and generally have a smashing great time. Their epic season takes a turn as they come face-to-face with Crashers Rule #22: “You have a wedding and a reception to seal the deal. Period. No overtime.” Will they uphold their reputation as the heart of the party? Or will they follow their hearts?

The Terminator (1984)

via GIPHY

In this multi-sequelled sci-fi hit, a cyborg assassin from the year 2029 is sent back to 1984 to kill the woman whose son will become the future savior of mankind. Humankind’s ultimate enemy? The cyborgs. In an effort to stop the assassination, soldier Kyle Reece is sent back in time to pursue the cyborg, and carry out one mission: Save Sarah Connor, by any means necessary. Catch this classic that spawned the epic quote “I’ll be back”, and launched Arnold Schwarzenegger into superstardom.

Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

via GIPHY

In this magical and highly awarded film, director Alfonso Cuarón takes us into the world of Ofelia, a young girl living through the Spanish Civil War. Her life is uprooted after the death of her father, and her mother’s subsequent marriage to a cruel military officer. The film manages to cross over between the mysterious creatures of the labyrinth and the practical world in which she lives. The result is a visually stunning and enthralling movie that everyone will love.

The Matrix Trilogy: The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Matrix Revolutions (2003)

via GIPHY

This mind-bender has become a modern classic for its use of special effects and its epic and allegorical story. In the first installment, we are introduced to Neo, a young man going through the motions of his unremarkable life, when he becomes embroiled in a mind-expanding adventure that has us all questioning the meaning of life as we know it.  Capture each part of the trilogy and save it to watch for when you have time to get lost in its many layers.

Cool Hand Luke (1967)

via GIPHY

No one does cool better than Paul Newman. Catch him in this classic that solidified him as an icon of American cinema. This movie introduces us to Luke, an ex-soldier who is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison. What makes this psychological prison drama a classic is Luke’s refusal to submit to an arbitrary system of power and punishment, and it asks the viewer to do the same.

Dumb and Dumber (1994)

via GIPHY

If a comedy is more your thing, be sure to catch Dumb and Dumber before it’s too late. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are timeless in this hit about two friends who take on an epic road trip in pursuit of the perfect girl that Carrey’s Lloyd has his eye on. The antics they get into will stay with you, and you’ll finally understand some major pop culture references that your friends have been quoting since the beginning of time. A great comedy to watch and re-watch.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) & The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999)

via GIPHY

In this epic spy spoof to end all spy spoofs, Mike Myers creates and stars as the character of Austin Powers, an outrageously flamboyant British spy from the swinging 1960s. Netflix is offering two Austin Powers flicks: The International Man of Mystery, and its sequel, The Spy Who Shagged Me. Don’t miss the chance to laugh out loud as Austin takes on his arch-nemesis Dr. Evil (also played by Myers), and a whole host of spy movie tropes that unravel under Myers’ satirical looking-glass.

Pretty Little Liars, Seasons 1-7 (2010-2017)

via GIPHY

The only series on our list, Pretty Little Liars is the hit that launched quite a few careers. Set in a suburban Pennsylvania town, this hit show is based on the mystery surrounding the unraveling secrets of a group of friends. Once inseparable, the friends find themselves torn apart after the disappearance of the leader of their friend group. They are brought together again after they start receiving mysterious letters from “A” who seems to be out for revenge. This is a great one to record and save for binge-watching. Just make sure you can save it to your personal watchlist before it leaves Netflix for good!

Don’t wait to record your favorites… These titles are only on Netflix for a few more days, so make sure that you’ve got Replay Video Capture locked and loaded. You’ll be glad you have them all to watch when you are watching with the AC blasting this summer!  

5 Reasons to Always Download Netflix Movies

When it comes to the hottest movies, or your must-watch series, Netflix is king. It has changed the way we watch movies and our favorite shows at home, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing. Our viewing habits have changed in big ways thanks to Netflix, which through it’s new releases and groundbreaking blockbusters, is making it possible to watch loads of content nearly immediately.

But it isn’t perfect. If you want to stay on top of all of the best movies and quality series, you have to act fast, or you might risk losing your favorites forever. Thankfully, with Replay Video Capture, the power is back in your hands. You can download and save your favorites at anytime, to watch anytime, thanks to the software’s powerful technology.

Looking for some reasons to download your movies from Netflix? Here are a few of our biggest:

1. Outlast Netflix’s Rotating Catalog

Probably the number one reason to always download your Netflix favorites is because of what makes Netflix great… Their endlessly rotating catalog. Netflix is great at staying current and offering the freshest releases because of their incredibly narrow catalog and it’s pretty constant rotation. When you have Replay Video Capture, you really don’t have to worry about losing those movies in your queue that you’ve been dying to watch before they leave Netflix for good.

2. Create Your Own Personal Playlist of Amazing Movies

It’s hard to think of a better reason to download movies from Netflix than building your ultimate playlist of favorite movies. While traditionally, it was common to have a collection of pretty great DVDs, now most people are building a collection of their absolute favorite videos on a playlist. It’s fast, mobile, and now it doesn’t have to take up a ton of space to have your all-time favorites at your fingertips. Capturing your favorites from Netflix has really never been easier than with Replay Video Capture.

3. Watch Your Favorites While You Travel

Nothing beats finally taking an incredible vacation. There’s the infinite possibility of exploring somewhere new, coupled with the ability to get in some quality time with that highly-anticipated movie on your Netflix queue. But beyond reaching your dream destination, there are still lots of things to think about, especially if a long journey is involved. But nothing is more disappointing than finally reaching your destination only to find out that that coveted Netflix queue is actually not available in another area! With Replay Video Capture, you can download and save your favorites so you can watch your favorites while you are traveling by air, by train, or by sea.

4. Watch Your Favorites, No Wifi Required

Netflix is one of the best platforms for getting the freshest movies and series that come out. There is a whole catalog online for you curl up with on basically any day and watch for hours on end. The only thing better? Being able to watch your favorites without having to stay tethered to a Wifi connection or use up your phone’s precious data. With Replay Video Capture, you can download an unlimited amount of your favorites and watch them offline.

5. Keep Your Favorites Forever, Even After They Are Long Gone

Netflix isn’t just movies. It’s actually known for some of it’s incredible original shows. But just because you love it and want to keep watching it for years to come doesn’t mean that it will stay around. In fact, Netflix is known for cycling out obvious fan favorites in favor of bringing on new programs. It’s not a bad thing, especially if it means fresh series are on the horizon.

But if you have a favorite that gets cancelled, where does that leave you? Fortunately, with Replay Video Capture, you won’t get stuck with losing your favorite shows. Keep your favorite storylines alive for good by downloading and saving your favorites.

There’s no reason to lose track of your favorite movies and series. Netflix has a fast rotation, but you can be faster… Especially with Replay Video Capture behind you. You never have to miss a thing, and you can keep your favorites to watch over and over, no matter where you are. Ready to get started?

Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are

Her theory? By assuming certain poses, we can actually become who we want to be.

Zombie Roaches and Other Parasite Tales

Ed Yong

This talk is given by scientific journalist Ed Yong, who explores the world of parasites and bacteria, and how they drive host organisms to do their bidding, even at times to their own self-destruction.

The talk leaves the viewer compelled to ask serious “What-if’s” about the possibility of the free will of human beings themselves.

Love, No Matter What

Andrew Solomon

The Museum of Four in the Morning

Tom Rives

In this funny and enthralling talk, Tom Rives takes the audience on a journey of his minor fixation with the time 4am, and he details how it led to a small revolution of crowd-sourced references to this time. Through literature, pop-culture, science-based references, this time so resonated with so many people, he was able to create a museum online: The Museum of Four in the Morning. Intensely peculiar and deeply satisfying, this talk is an eye-opener and not to be missed.

Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson

How to Stream & Record MLB Playoffs Online

Want to watch the MLB Playoffs without cable? For cord-cutting sports fans, finding and accessing live streaming baseball games online can be a struggle.

This year’s postseason games are no different, airing on the 5 tried-and-true cable networks: Fox, Fox Sports 1 (FS1), ESPN, TBS, and Major League Baseball Network (MLBN) — all of which won’t let you tune in without an antenna, unfortunately. Luckily, we were able to scrounge up some online options for you to live stream the MLB Playoffs and record with Replay Video Capture for Windows and Replay Video Capture for Mac.

Take a look at the full MLB Playoffs schedule here and the most up-to-date bracket below:

Hulu Live TV

Hulu’s live streaming service is definitely powerful and super easy-to-access. With a feature to watch Hulu live TV through some major networks, baseball fans can also catch the 2017 MLB postseason here. With a $39.99/month price tag for the subscription, it’s a little on the pricey side, BUT if you’re a dedicated fan looking forward to all that 2017 postseason has to offer, it’s probably worth investing in.

The pros:

  • Tap into a free trial for the postseason and cancel afterward if you want to save some cash.
  • Access 50+ top channels including sports and news from MLB, FS1, Fox, and dozens more.

The cons:

  • A $39.99 monthly subscription may not be sustainable for most budgets.

MLB.TV

MLB.TV subscribers already have streaming rights to some of the best postseason games. While the MLB’s blackout policies prevent it from actually live streaming the playoffs in some areas, archived streams are available to everyone in blacked-out areas as soon as 90 minutes after each game ends. Not currently a member? This may be one of the simplest options for watching and recording the games with Replay Video Capture.

The pros:

  • Available to watch postseason games on multiple devices.
  • Watch MLB games during the regular season and beyond.

The cons:

  • The package does not provide U.S. viewers with access to the entire postseason.
  • Tou’ll need to authenticate your MLB.TV account through your pay television provider (aka, still have a cable subscription)

These restrictions ONLY apply to U.S.-based viewers, however. Subscribers outside the United States can watch every postseason and World Series game on more than 400 devices, no authentication needed!

Never miss a pitch, slide or home run again. MLB fans can use Replay Video Capture to easily record the Playoffs online from any of the above sources! 

Replay Video Capture is the easiest way to capture any baseball game on your screen and turn it into a high quality, video movie file. Make personal copies of your favorite MLB Playoffs games and keep them forever, in whatever format you want.

9 Powerful Hacks for the Ultimate Netflix Experience

Love kicking back for a relaxing night with Netflix? Us too. No matter how much time you spend watching, though, you’ll never be a real power user if you don’t poke around under the entertainment hood. We took the time to really dive in (so you don’t have to), and rounded up a collection of tricks will greatly improve your Netflix experience.

Here are our top tips to take your Netflix binges to the next level:

1. Switch to high quality

High quality is the best quality when you’re enjoying movies online. You can manually force HD playback on Netflix on your TV to ensure your media is always shown in the highest-quality possible. First, make sure that your internet connection supports streaming 5 megabits/second or more, then log in and go to Account Settings > Playback Settings to select high quality.

(Note: Chrome users won’t be able to use this trick – sorry!)

2. Stream off peak hours

This may seem a little more on the obvious side, but choosing to stream Netflix shows NOT during peak hours will always award you with better quality. When less people are using Netflix overall, it improves downstream data traffic and thus, your viewing experience.

3. Use your phone as a remote

Lost the remote in your couch cushions again? You can turn any smartphone into a remote control just by downloading the Netflix app for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. Once installed and synced properly, you’ll be able to play, pause, stop and browse all from your connected device. Technology rules.

4. Create multiple profiles

We all have those guilty, yet amazing, pleasures we jump to when no one else is around to judge our viewing habits. Now you don’t have to hide when you create multiple profiles on Netflix! It’s free, easy to set up, and you’ll be able to generate a different profile for your chick flicks, horror movies, or anything else you may want to keep separate from your main account.

5. Say goodbye to buffering

Buffering movies and shows on your laptop can be a serious time-waster. To get rid of buffering in Netflix while playing a title, select Shift+Opt (Shift+Alt for Windows) and left click to open up a “hidden” menu called the Stream Manage. You’ll find buffering fixes, along with some other helpful tips!

(Note: For Chrome users, press Ctrl+Shift+Alt/Opt+S to access this menu.)

6. Find the best flicks

Reddit brings out the best (and sometimes worst) parts of the Internet. Use it to your advantage and head to r/netflixbestof to check out all of the best, most painstakingly-selected shows and movies to see so you never have to browse aimlessly again.

7. Record anything for later

Technology now allows us to record streaming movies and television shows from Netflix to watch forever, even after the site has taken them down. Using Replay Video Capture, you can screen record ANYTHING on Netflix in amazingly high-quality formats.

8. Enhance your viewing

Browser extensions are better than they’ve ever been. With one add-on in Chrome called Netflix Enhancements, you can instantly access IMDB profiles, movie trailers, pop-up ratings from sources like Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, and more. You can even customize what you see once it’s installed.

9. Utilize keyboard shortcuts

Because streaming TV shows and movies should be as efficient as any other kind of digital hacking, Netflix keyboard shortcuts exist to streamline your viewing:

  • Play/Pause – Space bar OR Enter key
  • Play – Page Up key
  • Pause – Page Down key
  • Enable Full screen – F key
  • Disable Full screen – Esc key
  • Rewind 10 seconds – Shift + Left Arrow
  • Fast Forward 10 seconds – Shift + Right Arrow
  • Volume Up/Down – Up Arrow/Down Arrow
  • Mute On/Off – M key
  • Toggle by frame – CTRL + Space bar
