The Movies You Have To Watch Before They Leave Netflix In October 2019
- Published: 28 September 2019
- The start of spooky season is right around the corner but first, our favorite streaming services need to let go of some titles to make way for new content, and Netflix is no exception. These are the movies you won't want to miss out on before they leave Netflix in October 2019.
The brilliant minds of Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick come together in A.I. Artificial Intelligence, the 2001 sci-fi drama Kubrick began developing in the late 1970s, venturing to adapt Brian Aldiss' short story "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long" into a feature film. In 1985, Kubrick teamed with Spielberg to continue crafting the project, and when Kubrick handed Spielberg the directorial reins a decade later, he ran away with it.
What ended up on the silver screen was the unique story of a childlike robot named David, played by Haley Joel Osment, whose ability to love and abandonment by his adoptive parents set him on a journey to become a real boy. It's one part The Adventures of Pinocchio, one part The Wizard of Oz, and one part exploration of a future, post-climate change world. It's also got Jude Law as a male prostitute named Gigolo Joe, so there really isn't anything more you could want from A.I.
With two equally mind-boggling sci-fi horror sequels having come out in the last three years, it can be hard to remember where the Cloverfield franchise actually began. It started in 2008, before Dan Trachtenberg pulled a last-minute twist in 10 Cloverfield Lane and prior to Netflix's surprise release of The Cloverfield Paradox, with the original found-footage thriller helmed by Matt Reeves. Keep watching the video to see the movies you have to watch before they leave Netflix in October 2019.
