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

Page 2 of 2: Shaun of the Dead, Big Lebowski, & More TV Shows & Movies Leaving Netflix

Queer As Folk TV Show

8. Queer As Folk (Seasons 1-5)

This remake of the British series of the same name launched in 2000, chronicling the lives of a group of queer friends (single and coupled up) living in Pittsburgh. As well as some of the usual sitcom-style drama, it was one of the first shows to truly focus on the lives of the LGBT community, and became a huge hit – not just with those seeking better representation on screen, either. All five seasons of the series leave Netflix at the start of the month.

Leaving: February 1

7. Shaun Of The Dead

Halloween may be far away, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the brilliant zombie-comedy that is Shaun of the Dead. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, this is one of the funniest looks at the zombie apocalypse out there – but it’s leaving Netflix in February. Fans of Edgar Wright’s work can still watch one movie from the Cornetto Trilogy, though, as Hot Fuzz remains available on the streaming service. No zombies in that one though, just evil suburbanites.

Leaving: February 1

6. The Big Lebowski

The cast of the Big Lebowski

Classic ‘90s cult comedy, The Big Lebowski is filled with quips, quotables, and cultural references – even those who haven’t seen the film before will recognize some of the scenes. Of course, most will have already watched The Big Lebowski at least once, but it’s the perfect time to rediscover why this film is still so wildly popular, twenty years after its release.

Leaving: February 1

5. The Bourne Ultimatum

Matt Damon in The Bourne Ultimatum

The only Jason Bourne film currently available to stream on Netflix will be available no more – which is a shame for fans of this conspiracy-action franchise starring Matt Damon. The third in the series, The Bourne Ultimatum sees Jason Bourne wrap up his hunt to discover the truth about himself and his past, pursued by the usual threatening dudes with guns. A direct sequel to the first two, this is a surefire hit with action fans, being packed with chases, fights, twists, and turns.

Leaving: February 1

4. Woman In Gold

Woman In Gold

This historical drama is based on real-life events, as an octogenarian Jewish woman attempts to recover a famous painting that she believes belongs to her. Stolen by the Nazis during the war, the painting has since changed hands, and Woman In Gold chronicles her battle to get it back. Full of compelling performances (especially from star Helen Mirren), this is also a great chance to see Ryan Reynolds in a role where he’s not a smartmouth, superhero, or Pokemon.

Leaving: February 1

3. Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever

Another horror leaving Netflix in February is Cabin Fever, the remake of the 2002 film of the same name. This is perfect for anyone looking for something a little different to terrify them, as the core of the film is a flesh-eating disease (rather than zombies, serial killers, or any of the usual monster-fare). Another solid reminder not to choose remote cabins in strange places as a vacation spot.

Leaving: February 2

2. Sing

Sing Koala

One for the kids, Sing is an animated story of a world where animals act like people – and where a koala who owns a theater is determined to save it by hosting a singing contest. One of the best aspects of Sing is (unsurprisingly) the songs; the film includes more than 60 songs by well-known stars, and the soundtrack is absolutely incredible. With a star-studded voice cast to boot, Sing is one that the whole family will enjoy (until the third of the month, that is).

Leaving: February 3

2. Girl Meets World (Seasons 1-3)

Girl Meets World hug

Boy Meets World was a massive hit in the ‘90s, and with the recent trend for remakes, it’s not too much of a surprise that it was revived in 2014. Girl Meets World focuses on the children of the original characters, and while it definitely comes with a heaping dose of nostalgia, it failed to really land and was canceled after the third season. All three seasons were available to stream on Netflix, but are leaving in February – and for those who have yet to watch, it’s not going until the 19th, so there’s still time for a binge.

Leaving: February 19

1. Piranha

Jerry OConnell in Piranha 3D

Finally, one more horror flick departs Netflix in February. Piranha is a horror comedy that will remind fans of Jaws… but with more gags. And instead of one terrifying killer fish in the water, there are hundreds, after tremors released these ancient toothy sea creatures. Ridiculous? Sure. But that’s the point, so it works for fans of horror comedy that refuses to take itself even the slightest bit seriously.
