Geeky movies leaving Netflix on Aug. 1

We’re in the last week of July, so it’s mad-dash-binging time for several geeky titles leaving Netflix on Aug. 1.

It’s a relatively quiet, short month for geeky departures, as evidenced below. The biggest losses will be the two Mummy movies and the first three seasons of Sci-Fi’s mishandled Warehouse 13 (and they were the best of the series 4.5 seasons.)

Gone as of Aug. 1:

Addams Family Values (1993)

The Mummy (1999)

The Mummy Returns (2001)

The Nutty Professor (1996)

Queen of the Damned (2002)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993)

Warehouse 13 (first 3 seasons)

Wing Commander (1999)

Big, big, big Netflix news — and almost all of it’s good

In 2012, Netflix made a deal with Disney in which the streaming service gets all — that’s all — the latest movies from Walt Disney Animation, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar. The deal goes into effect in September, so prepare for a kick-ass fall.

Now, the only bummer news is that Hercules (our pick for most underrated Disney animated movie), Mulan, and Hunchback of Notre Dame 1 & 2 are leaving Netflix. Hercules is gone by June 1, Hunchback and Mulan on June 24. But, this probably isn’t a big deal as you may own them. Except if you’re us and don’t own Hercules, which you love and now need to purchase on Blu-ray.

But, let’s get you some more good Netflix news: There are some excellent movies coming soon.

Arriving June 1: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, and Jurassic Park 3, aka, Jurassic Park and the other two cruddy ones.
