Netflix drops over 70 movies

DALLAS, TEXAS (KXAS) - Netflix just removed almost 80 movies from its service, including "The Terminator," "Taxi Driver" and the entire "Rocky" series.

Netflix purges and swaps out their selections all the time, but we tend to stand up and take notice when they remove more than 20 or so titles at a given time.

You can get the full list of what's disappearing from Netflix starting July 1 over on Reddit, but these are the goners that are really breaking out hearts:

1. "From Russia With Love"

We're losing a lot of Bond films, actually, like For Your Eyes Only, A View To A Kill and Live And Let Die.

2. "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"

Classic Spielberg, you shall be missed.

3. "Dr. Strangelove"

Or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb." Is there a more iconic image than Major "King" Kong riding the bomb like a cowboy on a bucking bronco?

4. "Girl, Interrupted"

Angelina Jolie at her (award-winning) best.

5. "Event Horizon"

The other sci-fi film starring Sam Neill that we are still hopelessly devoted to.

6. "Taxi Driver"

Besides the fact that this movie is just good, we've all done the "You talkin' to me?" bit once in our life.

7. "Rocky" series

We must break Netflix for taking the entire "Rocky" series from us.

8. "Spaceballs"

If we didn't own this movie on DVD already, our tears would be flowing faster than ludicrous speed over this removal.

9. "The Night Of The Living Dead"

George Romero loved zombies before they were cool, you guys. And this film still has one of the most shocking endings in movie history, in our humble opinion.

10. "The Terminator"

We're partial to "Judgement Day," but that doesn't make Ah-nold's sudden absence sting any less.

11. "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan"

"I have been and always shall be your friend." Oh, the pain! Still gets us every single time.

12. "Lars and the Real Girl"

Who decided to give us less Ryan Gosling?

If these removals really frost your cookies (bonus points to whoever gets that movie reference), don't worry. Netflix is adding over 40 titles to streaming, but we'll talk about that another time.
