Netflix, Terminator, Girl Interrupted, Lars and the Real Girl, Rocky

Netflix, you heartbreaker. You know we love you and will never leave you, and you use that to your advantage! You just remove nearly 80 movies from your service and expect us to just sit there and take it?!

Yeah, OK. We'll take it. Because that's how this toxic, but necessary relationship works.

Sure, Netflix purges and swaps out their selections all the time, but we tend to stand up and take notice (read: stay seated in our comfy office chair and tweet about it) when they remove more than 20 or so titles at a given time.

You can get the full list of what's disappearing from Netflix starting July 1 (that's tomorrow!) over on reddit, but these are the goners that are really breaking out hearts:

1. From Russia With Love

Netflix Add GIFs

We're losing a lot of Bond films, actually, like For Your Eyes OnlyA View To A Kill and Live And Let Die.

2. Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Netflix Add GIFs

Classic Spielberg, you shall be missed.

3. Dr. Strangelove

Netflix Add GIFs

Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Is there a more iconic image than Major "King" Kong riding the bomb like a cowboy on a bucking bronco?

4. Girl, Interrupted

Netflix Add GIFs

Angelina Jolie at her (award-winning) best.

5. Event Horizon

Netflix Add GIFs

The other sci-fi film starring Sam Neill that we are still hopelessly devoted to.

6. Taxi Driver

Netflix Add GIFs

Besides the fact that this movie is just damn good, we've all done the "you talkin' to me?" bit once in our life.

7. Rocky series

Netflix Add GIFs

We must break Netflix for taking the entire Rocky series from us.

8. Spaceballs

Netflix Add GIFs

If we didn't own this movie on DVD already, our tears would be flowing faster than ludicrous speed over this removal.

9. The Night Of The Living Dead

Netflix Add GIFs

George Romero loved zombies before they were cool, you guys. And this film still has one of the most shocking endings in movie history, in our humble opinion.

10. The Terminator

Netflix Add GIFs

We're partial to Judgment Day, but that doesn't make Ah-nold's sudden absence sting any less.

11. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Netflix Add GIFs

"...and always shall be your friend." Oh, the pain! Still gets us every single freakin' time.

12. Lars and the Real Girl

Who decided to give us less Ryan Gosling?

And now the five movies we pretend we're not upset about losing because we want to seem more highbrow but in reality we're totally pissed:

1. Howard Stern's Private Parts

Netflix Add GIFs

We just really wanted an excuse to show that GIF.

2. Last Holiday

Netflix Add GIFs

It's Queen Latifah learning to snowboard! What's not to love?!

3. Beavis And Butt-head Do America

Netflix Add GIFs

True American icons.

4. Stuart Saves His Family

Netflix Add GIFs


And doggone it, people like you.

5. Look Who's Talking trilogy

Netflix Add GIFs

Bruce Willis was a talking baby and we shipped John Travolta and Kristie Alley so hard. Ah, the simpler times.

If these removals really frost your cookies (bonus points to whoever gets that movie reference), don't worry. Netflix is adding over 40 titles to streaming, but we'll talk about that another time.
