Another month, another batch of movies and shows that Netflix are purging, no doubt to replace with the continuous stream (no pun intended) of new content they are adding. Surprisingly, there are consolidating their removals into just a few days out of the month. 

On the first and second of May, there are some massive cuts being made, including the removal of classics like GoodFellas and Field of Dreams alongside The Hurt LockerPhineas and Ferb, and more. Low-key, it feels like a strong purge of Disney original content.

You know our routine, though: we give you a look at what's being removed, with some of our picks for content you absolutely MUST watch before they are gone...even if you've seen them before. Let's get to it.

Staff Picks

Stars: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci

For many, GoodFellas is the definitive mob movie. The epic Martin Scorsese classic brings the violent life of mob informant Henry Hill to the big screen, featuring a peak performance from Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci's foul-mouthed fire, and Robert De Niro as the O.G. of the squad. If you've not taken the time to consume this epic, do so ASAP.

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Stars: Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Sacha Baron Cohen

Let's keep it a buck: anything Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly do together is golden. Taking these two and placing them as competitive NASCAR drivers? It's actual comedy gold, and one of the oft-referenced films of our time. Certified chuckles.
