Watch these 11 Netflix movies before they leave in February 2022

Movies and shows leave Netflix all the time, and it’s always annoying to miss out on a title you technically paid for because you weren’t paying attention. Heck, that’s why one of us is canceling Netflix, because he lost the show he was watching.

So we thought it was fair to collect the biggest and best movies that are set to drop from Netflix later this month. That way, you can stream Terminator 2 without expecting Arnie to “come back” later in the year.

Other choices include beloved comedies, a very lighthearted one, and one on the darker side. There are also Oscar-winning films and a beloved classic family film. Heck, we’re even starting with a standalone movie that will help you prepare for The Batman.

Want more movies to watch? Check out our guide to the best Netflix movies. Want more TV? Get ready for the return of the canceled TV series Criminal Minds, which appears to be making a comeback on Paramount Plus.

For now, here are our picks for the 11 movies you need to watch before they leave Netflix in February 2022:

Good time
Departure: February 19

So, Robert Pattinson was a left field choice for Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman movie. Or at least he was for people who define Pattinson by the Twilight movies. We understand that, so now is a good time to check out Good Time. Directed by Uncut Gems masterminds Josh and Benny Safdie, this film shows Pattinson as a criminal on the run while trying to save his mentally handicapped brother. Critics applauded Pattinson’s performance, and the film drew comparisons to Dog Day Afternoon.

Chocolate
Departure: February 28

February and the chocolate industry are forever linked, as Valentine’s Day is an annual sugar rush. So now is the perfect time to watch the critically acclaimed Chocolate before it’s gone. The film centers on Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche), a chocolatier who moves to a fictional French village named Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, which is so repressed that she and her sweets manage to stir up a lot of emotions. Co-stars include Judi Dench as the owner of Vianne and Carrie-Anne Moss as one of the pious civilians who despise Vianne.

dance with wolves
Departure: February 28

Oscar-dominator Dances with Wolves is set to leave Netflix at the end of the month, so you might want to check it out to see why Kevin Costner has a Best Director award on his coat. Costner also stars in the film as Union Army Lt. John J. Dunbar, who was wounded in action in the Civil War before getting his request for transfer to the Western Frontier. In a bit of “white savior” storytelling, Dunbar helps the local Sioux tribe and is given the name “Dances with Wolves”.

Labyrinth
Departure: February 28

If your kids, or any kid you know, thinks kids movies are mostly neon-soaked animated adventures filled with voice actors hand-picked to amuse parents, it’s time to check out Labyrinth. A young Jennifer Connelly stars as Sarah, a teenager who made the unfortunate mistake of wishing her new baby brother was gone. How did she have any idea that Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie) would grant her wish? A fantastic production directed by Jim Henson, Labyrinth is one of the best family movies on Netflix, or at least it will be until March.

Martian attacks!
Departure: February 28

If you like your action movies with a giant helping of camp, you better have seen Mars Attacks! This satire of alien invasion movies features a line of murderous actors who portray a predictably dumb version of our own world, including Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael J Fox. Jack Nicholson stars as President James Dale, with Glenn Close as his wife, First Lady Marsha Dale, and their interactions with the giant-brained, big-eyed Martians attacking our planet are your first clue that something is wrong. not. What kind of Martian ambassador, we ask, shoots a dove of peace?

observe and report
Departure: February 28

Seth Rogen, shortly after making a name for himself as a likeable American neighborhood stoner, showed off the darker side of his acting skills in director Jody Hill’s Observe and Report (including the HBO series The Righteous Gemstones is unmissable). Here, Rogen plays a troubled mall cop named Ronnie Barnhardt, who is determined to capture the local flasher. The only problem? Well, Ronnie is a bit too violent in this quest. It’s not just Rogen’s show, as Michael Peña, Ray Liotta, and Anna Faris round out the cast of this short but memorable film.

rain man
Departure: February 28

Another classic film that Netflix is ​​about to drop, Rain Man earned Dustin Hoffman the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Raymond Babbit, an autistic savant who inherits a multi-million dollar estate from the deceased. from his father.

Half brothers
Departure: February 28

Say it with me: “Did we just become best friends?” Step Brothers, one of Will Ferrell’s most watchable comedies, is set to leave Netflix, which means we won’t have time for activities. Ferrell and John C. Reilly are, respectively, Brennan and Dale: the titular parents who are as emotionally stunted as grown men can be. After constantly bickering, much to the dismay of their parents Robert and Nancy, the two eventually bond over shared interest and their dislike of Brennan’s annoying (and successful) younger brother, Derek (Adam Scott).

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Departure: February 28

The first of two sci-fi classics starring Arnold Schwarzenegger about to say “Hasta la vista, baby,” Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the biggest movie leaving Netflix this month. One of the best sequels, too, T2 brings Schwarzenegger back as a T-800 Terminator sent from the future to protect a young John Connor (Edward Furlong), the boy whose survival is central to humanity’s future. It’s not quite as good a film, however, without the other badass: Linda Hamilton still impresses to this day as Sarah Connor, while Robert Patrick (as T-1000) still receives plaudits for the chilling vibes he delivered from the way he walks.

Total recall
Departure: February 28

If that’s not enough Ahnuld, then rewatch Total Recall, which comes out the same day. Paul Veerhoven’s film isn’t as critically acclaimed as T2, but it was still the fifth highest-grossing film of 1990. Total Recall is set on Mars, where Vilos Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) rules with a fist turbinium, because it is the ore that it extracts. Soon, Earthling Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) – after getting involved with a company called Rekall that rearranges your memories as you please – finds himself on Mars and discovers just how wild things are off the planet.

The interview
Departure: February 28

If Observe and Report is too dark a Seth Rogen vehicle for you, then maybe it’s time to remember that Rogen and his pal James Franco almost started a war with Korea. The interview positions Rogen and Franco as reporters trying to interview Rogen and James Franco as reporters who set up an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park), which sounds like a nice little episode of South Park. But this time, reports broke that the Korean government was threatening “stern” and “ruthless” action if the film was released. The movie itself is an average Rogen comedy, and not exactly one of the movies he’d place at the top of his own resume, but still fun to laugh at while he’s still around.
