I hope to watch some of these shows on Netflix before they leave in July 2020. Who knows when they’ll get back again? I wonder why shows don’t live forever in the video on demand shelves of Netflix. Does it have anything to do with storage space?
Blue Valentine (July 4)
Starring Ryan Gosling and MIchelle Williams
Under the Skin (July 11)
Scarlett Johansson. Sci fi. Alien moving around Scotland. But it’s not what you think.
Locke (July 11)
Tom Hardy. One-man movie.
The Spectacular Now (July 11)
Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley. High school romance movie?
Room (July 18)
Brie Larson plays Joy, who gives birth while in captivity as a kidnapped teen. Read Emma Donoghue’s novel.
Obvious Child (July 18)
Jenny Slate is a stand-up comedian. Jake Lacy. One night stand results in unplanned pregnancy.

Ex Machina (July 25)
Oscar Isaac is a millionaire who shows Domhnall Gleeson that ultimate in AI robot technology. Alicia Vikander is a convincing android.
Her (July 28)
What is low-fi sci fi? What if Siri became too supportive? Theodore Twombly falls for the voice of Scarlett Johansson.
The Incredibles 2 (July 29)
Hooray, Pixar! Would love to hear the voices of Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener.
The Edge of Seventeen (July 31)
Hailee Steinfeld plays Nadine Franklin, a typical teen. It’s about hitting bottom and bouncing back.

Will I be able to watch these?
- The Iron Lady
- Solo: A Star Wars Story
- Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain
- Ant-Man and the Wasp
- Back to the Future
- Can’t Hardly Wait
- E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
- Stuart Little
- The Pianist
- The Pursuit of Happiness
- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
That’s a lot of movies to rush through before Netflix bids them goodbye before July ends.
When will people find the time to watch all these? Around 33 x 2 hours, that’s at least 66 hours. Or should I use those 66 hours catching up on my sleep?
Clearly, we’ll need to prioritize and choose just a handful of those movies to watch. If we miss a few or a lot, then so be it.
We can hopefully watch those again in the future. :-)
