We should all be used to this by now. At midnight tonight, when the calendar changes to July 1, a bunch of movies will expire on Netflix Streaming. Some of them may come back at some later point — like the James Bond movies, which disappear and reappear every now and again — and some may be gone forever. (That’s probably an extreme assumption.) If any of these are on your Netflix streaming queue (we’ll never call it “My List.” Never!), might wanna make tonight a sofa night.

In no particular order …

  • Chinatown
  • The Terminator
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  • Gattaca
  • Rocky 1-5
  • Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
  • Taxi Driver
  • Spaceballs
  • Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, Live and Let Die, The Living Daylights, You Only Live Twice, Never Say Never Again
  • As Good As It Gets
  • Event Horizon
