Get watching…. quick.
This summer, with all the miserable weather we’ve been having, it’s probably been a little easier to catch up on Netflix films and shows you’ve been holding off for a… rainy day.
But with the sheer volume of content plastered across the many streaming sites, it’s still pretty difficult to catch up. That’s why we’re giving you a little helping hand by pointing out all the great flicks leaving Netflix each month – that way they can go straight to the top of your watchlist.
So if you have a free couple of hours between now and the end of August, then it may be a good time to take a look below and catch up on all of these classic movies that are leaving Netflix in just a few days.
Netflix: Here are the best films leaving the streaming service in September.
13 Going on 30 (2004)
An absolute classic starring Jennifer Garner, where she plays a 13-year-old girl who is transferred into the body of a 30-year-old woman by magic dust.
Blades of Glory (2007)
A pretty great comedy starring Will Ferrell and Jon Hader about two disgraced figure skaters who team up and attempt to compete in the sport again. The film came at the height of Will Ferrell’s domination over comedy and both him and Hader make a great leading duo.
Meet the Fockers (2004)
It may not hold up to how it was perceived when we were all a little younger but this sequel to Meet the Parents (a genuinely great comedy) is still worth a watch if you’re up for some cheap laughs. Luckily, it’s just about propped up by an unbelievable cast including Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand and Bythe Danner.
Midnight Express (1978)
This prison drama film directed by Alan Parker and adapted by Oliver Stone from Billy Hayes’s 1977 memoir of the same name stars Brad Davis as an American student who is sent to a Turkish prison after attempting to smuggle hash into the country.
Vanilla Sky (2001)
One of Tom Cruise’s weirder film appearances sees him play a magazine publisher whose world gets upended after he receives life-altering scars.
The documentary film is about an infamous Brazilian murder case https://t.co/wZnuIbYWDX

Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson star as scientists aboard the international space station who discover life on Mars that may be a threat to mankind in this sci-fi horror. It’s well-acted and definitely worth a watch if you’re into Alien-inspired films.
She’s Gotta Have it (1986)
Written, produced, edited and directed by the legendary Spike Lee, this is the film that launched him into stardom. His first feature film, which he also acts in, She’s Gotta Have It centres on a young woman who juggles the relationships of three men.
Chances are, you’ve probably seen Guy Ritchie’s British gangster classic, but if you have, chances also are you want to watch it again. And it’s the perfect re-watch.
Jason Statham, Stephen Graham, Dennis Farina, Brad Pitt and Vinnie Jones – need we say more on that casting?
There could be a sequel to the much-loved crime comedy on the way!https://t.co/fns7mojBXv

Son of Rambow (2007)
Set in Thatcher’s Britain in the 80s, this Garth Jennings-directed flick focuses on two kids from different backgrounds who set out to make a film inspired by the Rambo film First Blood.
