Netflix Purging Streaming Library On January 1. See These 6 Films (And Others) Before They Expire
17
do the right thing

According to Netflix sleuths on Reddit, the streaming service will be refreshing its library as the new year (2014) begins, as rights to several existing titles expire, starting on January 1, which means, you have just 5 days to watch these films (those you are interested in) before they disappear from Netflix's library.


Of note, films that are included on the list that you might be interested in, are:

- Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing

Keenan Ivory Wayan's I'm Gonna Get You Sucka

Pam Grier's Foxy Brown

Ernest Dickerson's Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight (which stars Jada Pinkett Smith)

Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (the 1984 sequel to the break-dancing film Breakin')

Jeannie Bell in T.N.T. Jackson
