I am in love with movies right now. That might sound weird, and even a bit trite, because who doesn’t love movies? I guess I just mean that I am finding it hard not to get submerged into a really good movie. For example, I’ve recently taken to watching all the Batman movies, in the order that they were released. Why? Well, after the first Batman movie, I was literally hooked. With the invention of streaming services like Netflix, we take this kind of movie watching for granted. Or at least, I do. Netflix gives us the opportunity to get into a bunch of movies all at once, without having to really think about it all that much.
That said, there are some pretty great movies leaving Netflix this September.
As I said, I recently watched all of the Batman movies in order. And I’m kind of wishing there were more. But Batman Begins was actually one of my favorites. I’m not sure if it was Christian Bale’s version of Batman or the fact that this movie kind of explored Batman’s origin story. Sure, we all know what that origin story is, but, sometimes it’s nice to see it played out on the big screen. You better watch this one soon because it’s going away September 1.
The Dark Knight
Another really great Batman movie, which will be leaving Netflix on September 1st is The Dark Knight. I think the reason that I like this movie so much is that of Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker. It’s a bit creepy, and if I’m being honest, it gave me chills. But from a theatrical perspective, it was kind of incredible. I can’t decide if I like this one more or less than The Dark Knight Rises. There’s something to be said about both of them. Both of these Batman films are quite old at this point, but they are both also kind of amazing.
A childhood favorite of mine, Ghostbusters will depart from Netflix also on September 1st. I recently had a conversation with a colleague of mine who said that she had never seen it. She’s quite a bit younger than me, but I mean it’s a classic. This is one that I could watch, literally every weekend, but because I’m a grown adult, I spend my time doing “adult” things. Oh to be a kid again. Regardless of how I feel about life, this is a great movie, and you should definitely watch it before it goes.
Also leaving Netflix in September:
- Casino (September 1st)
- Dead Poets Society (September 1st)
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall (September 1st)
- Pete’s Dragon (September 14th)
- Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (September 15th)
- Moonrise Kingdom (September 16th)
- The Imitation Game (September 28th)
The departure of these two Batman movies definitely has me longing for DC to make more. I mean, they put out a lot of Batman movies in the span of 10 years. Why did they stop? Regardless of the story, there can never be enough Batman. So please, DC, if you’re listening, give me more!
