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.
Lords of Dogtown
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.
Swiss Family Robinson
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.
Legends of the Fall
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.
