Netflix streaming additions and purges for July

Jun 27, 2014

It’s the end of the month, which means Netflix is about to purge a lot of great selections that you didn’t even know were available because the crappy algorithm kept aggressively recommending that you watch the new “Sherlock” series for the thousandth time. This weekend is your last chance to watch some classic blockbusters and charming indie flicks alike instead of going out and actively participating in this fleeting thing we call life.

Here’s what’s set to purge. Say good-bye to gems like “Spaceballs,” “Chinatown” and the underrated Alan Alda/Ellen Burstyn charmer “Same Time, Next Year.”

Butter (2011)
Raging Bull (1980)

Of course, as we all know, the Netflix gods do not close a door without opening a window. So, say hello to these titles come July 1st. There are a couple stand-out titles coming back to the streaming roster such as the vintage Clive Owen thriller “Croupier,” “12 Angry Men” and the delightfully schlocky ’80s action classic “American Ninja.” However, it seems like we’re losing strong movies and getting handed weaker titles in return.

Also, “Bad Santa” is coming, because that hasn’t been played to death on Comedy Central over the past few years.
