Last Call: Titles leaving Netflix in February, 2017

(KUTV) Here is a quick peek and a handful of recommendations regarding the titles leaving Netflix in February, 2017.

An Inconvenient Truth

Seeing as "An Inconvenient Sequel" kicked off the Sundance Film Festival last week, it is the perfect time to revisit Davis Guggenheim and Al Gore's 2006 documentary about climate change.

Black Hawk Down

When two Black Hawk helicopters are shot down during a mission into the heart of Mogadishu a group of soldiers must fight to stay alive until they can be rescued. Ridley Scott has given cinema some of its finest moments and while "Black Hawk Down" might not quite be on the same level as "Alien," "Blade Runner" or "Thelma and Louise," it is a gripping experience that truly will have you on the edge of your seat. Scott was nominated for an Academy Award for his work and the film won a pair of Oscars for Best Editing and Best Sound.


My awareness of independent cinema came alive just around the time that Kevin Smith's breakout film "Clerks" played at the Sundance Film Festival in 1994. I wouldn't see the film until a few years later, but the tale of uneventful adventures of Dante Hicks and Randal Graves, two convenience store clerks, remains Smith's best work.

The Machinist

Christian Bale stars as an insomniac machinist who hasn't slept in over a year. Driven by a sense of paranoia a believes his co-workers are plotting to destroy him. But, what if it is all just inside his head?

There Will be Blood

Daniel Day-Lewis, Paul Dano and Ciarán Hinds star in Paul Thomas Anderson's cautionary tale about oil, greed and men driven to madness over the promise of wealth and luxury. The film was nominated for eight Oscars; it won two for Best Actor and Best Cinematography. The film also features one of the more iconic and bizarre quotes, "I drink your milkshake, I drink it up."


Danny Boyle's adaptation of Irvine Welsh 's novel "Trainspotting" is fevered madness. Fueled by a sense of paranoia and a desire to escape from the madness Renton (Ewan McGregor) looks to get off heroin while still maintaining relationships with his drug-addled friends. With a sequel scheduled to arrive in March, its a great time to return to the scene of the original crime.

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape

Now that Leonardo DiCaprio has an Oscar the world has been robbed of the use of some fantastic memes. DiCaprio doesn't have a dog in this year's race, so let's go back to 1993 for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," the story of a young man (Johnny Depp) forced to care for his mentally-disabled brother (DiCaprio) and obese mother. This is the film that put DiCaprio on the map. Sure, Tommy Lee Jones (the least deserving of all the nominees) went home with the Oscar, but if DiCaprio had won, think of all the fun and games (at his expense) we would have missed out on.


You'll have a couple extra weeks step into a time machine to return to the '90s catch up with "Clueless" because Amy Heckerling's classic comedy starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash and Brittany Murphy doesn't leave until February 28.
