Another month, another streaming library scrambles. Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max and Amazon Prime continue to trade their titles like hot potatoes as streaming deals end and platforms (especially newer platforms like HBO Max) try to beef up their offerings. .
From November 1 it means losing Thesilenceofthelambs on Netflix after only a month on the service. (Psychological horror previously aired on HBO Max.) HBO Max, on the other hand, loses Alone at home before the Christmas season (but if you ask me it’s never too early to watch Alone at home.) We also wrote last month that Kenneth Branagh is excellent A lot of noise for nothing The adaptation would leave Amazon Prime at the end of September, but it ended up sticking around for another month.
Titles leaving Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime this month will likely appear on another service in a month or two, but for now, this is your last chance to catch these 10 movies in their home. current streaming.
Of course, the plot is cliché and the acting leaves a little to be desired, but with two pop divas like Christina Aguilera and Cher at the helm, everything is easily overlooked. Burlesque is pure campy pleasure. Aguilera plays a small town singer named Ali who moves to Los Angeles to follow her dreams of performing, and ends up working as a cocktail waitress and then as a backup dancer at a burlesque club owned by Cher (I mean, the name of her character is Tess, but she’s still Cher.) The musical numbers are, of course, amazing, especially since Ali tries to convince Tess to let her sing live instead of lip-syncing. Additionally, the supporting cast includes Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, and a wonderfully catty Kristen Bell.

Forget Sarah Marshall
Forget Sarah Marshall is perhaps the sweetest of the comedies produced by Judd Apatow, thanks in large part to the sensibility of writer and star Jason Segel. He plays a TV composer, Peter, whose girlfriend, titular Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell) and star of the show he’s working on, abruptly throws him away. When he goes to a Hawaiian resort to try and forget about him, Sarah introduces herself with her new boyfriend, rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand).

A lot of noise for nothing
Adapted and directed by famous Shakespeare master Kenneth Branagh, A lot of noise for nothing is simple fun in the sun. The film stars Branagh and Emma Thompson as argumentative and electric Benedick and Beatrice, who must work together to clear Hero’s name (Kate Beckinsale) so she can marry Count Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard). Keanu Reeves stars as Don John, who aims to keep Hero and Claudio apart, with Denzel Washington as Don Pedro the required straight man, and none other than Michael Keaton as Dogberry, the local police officer and the comic relief. —Karen Han
A lot of noise for nothing was about to leave Amazon Prime Video September 30, but stick around until October 31.
Steven Soderbergh’s remake of the 1960 film replaces one iconic cast (Frank Sinatra! Dean Martin! Sammy Davis Jr.!) With another (George Clooney! Brad Pitt! Matt Damon! Don Cheadle!). It’s a delicious heist movie, an excuse for a bunch of famous friends to make a movie together, and kicked off a cinematic universe that includes Julia Roberts’ character Tess Ocean claiming to be … actress Julia Roberts.

Anthony Hopkins won the Oscar for Best Actor with just 16 minutes of screen time. Her performance as Hannibal Lecter remains one of the greatest ever to be in film, and is matched beat for beat by the turn of Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling, the FBI intern who enters her orbit as she pursues the serial killer known as “Buffalo Bill”. The Silence of the Lambs is also one of the best (and most well-known) films of the late director Jonathan Demme, and rightly so, as it balances the incomprehensibly gruesome with surprisingly tangible human emotions. —Karen Han

Tim Burton’s adaptation of the Washington Irving short story is a cult classic thanks to the signature Burton aesthetic and wonderfully hammered performances, especially by Christopher Walken who plays the infamous Headless Horseman. Unlike some of Burton’s more family-friendly fares (see: The nightmare before Christmas above) Sleepy hollow leans completely into the macabre, with spooky and gory visual effects that evoke a spooky atmosphere from start to finish.
