YOU'RE THE KING OF THE COUCH! And as a benevolent ruler, you need to know what's on Netflix so you can properly schedule your viewing time. If you haven't seen these movies in a while (or ever), hop to it because they are leaving Netflix streaming at the end of July.

GONE as of Aug. 1:

Titanic (ugly-cry at the ending one more time)

faceoff.jpg

Face/Off (classic John Woo, plus this movie ties with Con Air for peak Cage)

The Fifth Element (get your fill of Leeloo and Ruby Rhod before you can't anymore ... except chopped up to bits on TBS, TNT and USA every other weekend)

Kiss the Girls (starring Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd at her ultra-'90s apex)

Shooter (Mark Wahlberg as a military sniper framed in a conspiracy; the movie is being expanded into a TNT series next year)

Joe Dirt (a feature-length David Spade joke. Why?)

Fools Rush In (Chandler Bing and Frida Kahlo get married; cultural misunderstandings ensue!)

Driving Miss Daisy (worth the watch to see what kind of racism was not just acceptable, but Oscar-winning, just 23-ish years ago)

chittybang.jpg

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (this movie about a car is from 1968, yet is less racist. Plus, better songs)

Digimon (digital monsters ... gotta watch 'em all)


familyties.jpg

Gone Aug. 15:
Family Ties (Alex P. Keaton's briefcase! Tina Yothers' crimping iron! Meredith Baxter Birney pretending her skin doesn't crawl at a man's touch!)

Gone Aug. 23:
Jiro Dreams of Sushi ( a must-see for obsessives of all types, not just foodies)
