This week, Netflix announced the movies and TV shows that are on the cutting block from July.  Yes, those documentaries you’ve been meaning to watch will disappear from your Netflix menu in a matter of weeks.

It’s a good reminder that most shows on Netflix don’t last forever.  And while it might seem like you’re spoiled for choice, if you don’t prioritise your time wisely, you could miss out on a few gems.  Here, Thrillist spotlights the three top titles to watch now before they’re gone for good.  Let’s not waste any time—these are the shows that will disappear from Netflix in July.

If You Only Watch Three Things


This 3-D movie picked up 11 Academy Award nominations and walked away with five. Watch Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece before it leaves Netflix on July 1.

Two Weeks Notice

If you haven’t seen this early 2000s rom-com in a few years, it’s time for a rewatch. Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock make for perfect mid-week viewing. Catch this movie before it disappears July 3.

Blazing Saddles

Thrillist insists Blazing Saddles belongs on your must-watch list. “Comedy often ages about as well as Benjamin Button on rewind, but this mid-’70s Western spoof—in which a black sheriff arrives in an all-white town destined for destruction to make way for a railroad—holds up.” The film will be cut from Netflix programming July 1.
