BACK_TO_THE_FUTURE-4 As another month comes to a close we are all faced with that horrible question: what is Netflix getting rid of?  Lucky for you it's only March 31 so you still have a few hours to sneak in a final viewing of those soon to be lost gems.  Below are five of the titles that will be most missed among Netflix's departures.  Because time is so limited I am only including movies. The Cable Guy https://youtu.be/Xj259Pi_vrA Ben Stiller's directorial debut, The Cable Guy is a dark comedy which was ahead of its time.  Seriously, the part where Chip (Jim Carrey) talks about playing Mortal Kombat with your friend in Vietnam, definite foreshadowing to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Clue https://youtu.be/cDDdeHtrxfA A comedic spin on the classic board game, Clue is full of twists turns and multiple endings.  Even if you don't like the game, and if you don't shame on you, Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd lead a cast of oddballs which is very entertaining. Good Morning Vietnam https://youtu.be/3mJoHqmtFcQ A classic movie which looks and feels like a feel-good movie, but has a simmering tension always bubbling beneath the surface waiting to erupt.  It's probably a coincidence, but the fact that Good Morning Vietnam is being removed in the month of the 40th Anniversary of the fall of Saigon seems like a bad time to remove this movie. The Karate Kid  https://youtu.be/n7JhKCQnEqQ A movie that should be required viewing for everyone.  The Karate Kid is full of life lessons such as patience, hard work, and determination.  It also features one of the most diabolical lines ever uttered in film..."Sweep the leg." Mystic River https://youtu.be/AvQaTV_lBuk Kevin Bacon, Sean Penn, and Tim Robbins headline a great cast in this movie about childhood friends who grew apart, only to be brought back together by a horrible tragedy.  Definitely not a feelgood movie, but one worth watching if you haven't seen it before.  Besides, the sadness is short-lived because tomorrow you can watch Leprechaun 6: Back 2 tha Hood Leprechaun-_Back_2_tha_Hood_FilmPoster
