And so it continues: the give and take of movie and tv titles to and from your favorite online streaming video platform. Be it Netflix or Amazon Prime, there’s plenty of new content to save for yourself with Replay Video Capture (and a few titles to grab before they leave).
Spring is here! The months are flying by and so are on-demand streaming options on the Netflix. Never feel conflicted again about what to watch. Available already (or before April ends) are a few of the movie and TV titles we’re firing up Replay Video Capture for… before they’re gone again.
This Nicolas Cage-led US history thriller stands alone. The perfect mix of unbelievable action and entertaining mystery, this family-friendly PG romp somehow makes the Founding Fathers seem undeniably interesting.
Director Darren Aaronofsky’s latest project – a Bible Epic starring Russel Crowe, Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly. Fun fact: The scenes on the Arc are shot on a real Arc, which they built for the film and which survived Hurricane Sandy.
Feeling like getting scared? This new school horror film doesn’t rely on gimmicks, handheld camera work or possession themes for a change. With a genuine plot surrounding a single mother and her son, this is a chilling movie… perfect before bed (not really).
Another huge TV project from Marvel. Another Netflix original show. Don’t miss it. From the comic book pages to streaming on-demand, the story of a blind lawyer turned crime-fighter is much grittier than expected, which we love!
As the seasons change, so do the Netflix streaming options. And like the months before, March is blooming up fast. So dig into that queue and put these soon-to-be-removed movies on the list. Simply set up a time to record with your Replay Video Capture and have all of the streaming control you’d like with these gems well past February. Here are our favorites to say bye-bye from Netflix and hello with Applian recording software:
A harrowing travel story about two young friends who find themselves wrongfully imprisoned in a Thai prison for smuggling drugs into Hong Kong. A very young Kate Beckinsale and Claire Danes play the main characters, with Bill Pullman as their American lawyer to free them from 33 years of imprisonment. An interesting film about justice and the bonds of friendship, it’s definitely worth seeing if you’ve never before.
Based on the true story of the beginnings of skateboarding in grimy Venice, California circa 1970’s; this fictionalization of the z-boys and the Zephyr skate team is the perfect time-machine to a seedy but exciting place in the sports’ legacy. Supreme acting performances by Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch, and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, it’s an entertaining ride with an awesome soundtrack.
One of the classic Disney family films that ages well. About a family left stranded on a wild island, they fend for themselves. It features imaginative treehouses, frightening pirates, and a parade of exotic animals. The cinematography doesn’t disappoint some fifty years later and the scenic backdrop almost makes you wish you too were stranded there, perfectly nostalgic.
“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me? Aren’t you?” Relive the awkwardness of Dustin Hoffman’s breakout role as Benjamin Braddock, the bewildered college student lured in by his girlfriend’s mother, played by the beautiful Anne Bancroft. It’s worth having in the library as a perfect time capsule.
Okay, so technically this isn’t leaving Netflix until the very end of March, but it’s too good to not want to keep in your archives. Brad Pitt is more than a pretty face as the tough and brooding Tristan Ludow, alongside the brilliant Antony Hopkins as his father, and Aiden Quinn and Henry Thomas as the other Ludow brothers. Set in the rural America of the 1900s, this is a passionate movie about family, loss, war, and ultimately love.
Netflix is constantly rearranging its offerings of movies and television shows, which means that every month, there’s a whole new batch to view and fall in love with. Unfortunately, that also means that another handful of great cinema gets pushed off streaming. Here are our picks for you to hurry and record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online (at least, for free – for now).
GHOSTBUSTERS I & II: This is the ideal 80s movie, made complete with campy humor, heart throughout, suspicious special effects, and Bill Murray. Recording these two enjoyable pieces of cinematic charm is a wise move, so you can enjoy them when you’ve got nothing to watch. Save them for a long rainy day, and rejoice in melting giant marshmallows in hot chocolate.
BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA:Francis Ford Coppola’s amazing tribute to the classic horror tale has more juicy trivia in it than most mystery thrillers. One of the most well known elements of the film are the in-camera effects that Coppola insisted on. After firing a team of effect supervisors, he hired his 29 year-old son, Roman, to take the helm. Look for them and read up, it’s pretty magical. Oh, and the movie itself is brilliant with performances by Gary Oldman as Dracula and Anthony Hopkins as Van Helsing.
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: A sci-fi pillar, this television show proved that a complex space series could function without the Star Trek umbrella. Unlike the latter more episodic-based television, BSG retains a narrative that stretches over four seasons to unveil a rich cast of characters and compelling plot. After a terrifyingly advanced enemy (the Cylons) destroys the 12 colonies, a fleet of military and civilian ships are the only thing remaining of humanity, where they are left traveling through space to find the mythical Earth. Even if sci-fi isn’t your thing, BSG makes everyone a believer. By recording and having the series on-hand, you can get anyone at anytime on the Battlestar bandwagon.
MEAN GIRLS: This 2004 movie is one that is a staple for a particular generation – for what it’s worth – and is the stuff of sound bytes and repeatable quotes. You’ll be wearing pink on Wednesdays after Mean Girls marathons. It is the best teen film since Clueless and with a screenwriter like Tina Fey behind it; you know it’s full of perfect one-liners and comedic timing. Enjoy the more sober, less troubled Lindsay Lohan and save this movie for the next round of teenagers who need a lesson on how to survive high school and beyond.
So what are you waiting for? These cinematic gems are leaving Netflix Streaming in a few days, so fire up your Replay Video Capture and record your favorites for future repeat watchings!

Bob’s Burgers: Your new answer to the Simpsons. This adult cartoon is hilarious in all the right places and a perfect way to get some giggles when you come home after a long day of work. Without the annoying commercials, animated shows like this one are totally worth the time.
End Of Watch: Not exactly family-friendly, but this riveting thriller about Los Angeles cops is intense and feels real enough that you walk away with a new perspective of police work. Amazingly acted, this emotionally gripping story is worth sitting through.
Muscle Shoals: A top-notch music documentary for those interested in rock, blues, and soul. Illustrating the sounds that seeped from the small Alabama town, Muscle Shoals during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the films features cameos from Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Bono and Alicia Keys. You’ll be tapping your foot the whole time.
Drinking Buddies: This under-rated indie comedy about two friends who take a vacation with their significant others is a far cry from the rom-com nightmares. If you’re looking for the realism, humor, tension and feel-goodness that actual relationships bring, then this one should top the list.
Oh, and you should definitely record these now rather than later because Netflix has a tendency to discontinue streaming movies and crush your Instant Queue to smithereens. Plus, we think you might just want to watch these again, so recording them with Replay Video Capture is highly recommended.
