Starz Play Exodus of 2012

A great number of movies that have appeared on this blog will be 
disappearing from Netflix Instant over the next couple of days.

Why exactly?  $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.  Negotiations between Starz and Netflix broke down when they couldn't agree on $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.  So if you'd like to watch any of the following through Netflix Instant, I urge you to hurry up.

Say Goodbye to...

 Sacred Sunday:
The Trouble with Harry
Young Frankenstein
Billy Madison

Magnificent Monday:
Toy Story 3
Eight Men Out

Totally TV Tuesday:
Party Down

Wacky Wednesday:
About Schmidt
Coffee and Cigarettes
Year of the Dog
Shaolin Soccer

Traumatic Thursday:
Vampire's Kiss
The Crazies

Foreign Friday:
Howl's Moving Castle

So Bad It's Good Saturday:
Larger Than Life
Bad Girls
Club Paradise
Jingle All the Way
Battlefield Earth

By February 29th, these will all be gone.

I'm not trying to scare you - but this IS a warning.

The Mayans were right.

Prepare yourselves.  Stock up on water and flashlights.



The following non-Starz movies will also be making an exit - one day later:

Billy Jack
The Last Emperor
The Odd Couple
La Femme Nikita
Howard the Duck

  1. It’s quite the bummer for Netflix subscribers, first they get hit with the price change earlier this year, and then Netflix can’t work out a deal with Starz. I mean it is good that they are adding closed captioning, and some Academy Award winning movies. I still don’t know if what they are doing can compare to what they have lost now, but it does make me happier that I dropped Netflix back when the price change went into affect. Since I work at DISH I figured I would give the Blockbuster @home plan a shot, and it has actually made me happy that I did. Although Netflix keeps helping add that value, because I like streaming and renting DVD’s so the price is much better, and now I still have all those on demands Starz movies and shows that I have grown accustom to.
