As we reported earlier today, there are some really fantastic films that will be no longer streaming on Netflix once the calendar switches over to November. But while you will soon no longer be able to watch classics like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or Apocalypse Now online, the good news is that the company has some awesome stuff coming your way next month.
There are many upsides and downsides to the growing world of streaming movies, but easily one of the most frustrating is the lack of permanence that exists in the system. There are thousands of great movies available to watch, but because of the way contracts are structured they can be online one day and gone the next.

Looking to Gone Girl, Dracula Untold, and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of twisted thrillers, vampire tales, and family-friendly adventures.

Sometimes, all you want to do with an evening is spend it cuddled up to your nearest and dearest, in the warmth of your home, watching an entertaining cinematic yarn together. That’s how you intend for the evening to go. However, it seldom ever turns out that way.

Today we not only have a firm release date for the film's release, but we also have two gorgeous photos and some news on the film's unique distribution model.
Netflix has created a bigger time waster than Netflix itself. We'd tell you more about what they've done, but we don't want to spoil the surprise.
Blockbuster Video's corporate stores may be dead and buried, but there are still indie licensees bearing the name in parts of the country -- places were you can still wander in on a Friday night and browse the New Release wall for the latest movies.
We have scoured the land to find the greatest films currently streaming on Netflix. You can watch any of these movies right now.

For all the goodness that we’ve gotten on there recently, from Big Bad Wolves to My Girl, a big chunk of classic (and non-classic) features are getting expunged during July 2014. (Like the Rocky movies.) So get on these quick, or forever hold your Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus and Redbox Instant subscriptions.

New year, a new slate of films on Netflix… meaning you need to program a few movie marathons if you want to screen these films before they disappear.
Soon, Blockbuster will be no more.

As The New York Times reports, the amount of information about what's getting watched on streaming and rental services is incredibly smal
The official-sounding Yankee Rose is demanding that Netflix disclose any edits it’s making to the film its customers are watching. In a nutshell, Yankee Rose wants viewers to be made aware when changes are occurring. Seems fair.
If it looks familiar, it's basically because it's a return to the bad old days of Pan-and-Scan, when VHS releases of films would be cropped or zoomed-in to make the picture fit the square ratio of a standard television set (that's the "this film has been formatted to fit this screen" warning you used to get).

Much of the positive buzz Netflix has generated lately has to do with their original programming, which falls more into the TV side of the entertainment business.
