As fall gets a little colder and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) renegotiates and renews content contracts, users will see a slate of new titles arrive, but many others leave the platform.

While some of the movies departing are certainly dispensable, others are a must-see.

Here’s a list of five classic films you should watch before Netflix removes them from their U.S. portal.

1) The Truman Show (1998)

IMDb Rating: 8.1

You’re probably frustrated by now and don’t want to read this, but Fresh is also slated for removal from Netflix’s catalog on Tuesday. Are you into heavy, realistic dramas? This movie is certainly for you.

5) Into the Wild (2007)

The picture that makes you want to be young and adventurous is set to commence its own journey without Netflix on Tuesday.

Feeling down? Remember Christopher McCandless’ words: “I will miss you too, but you are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God's place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things.”

Might he be suggesting you switch to, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) Prime?
