To find out what platform these movies are streaming on in Australia, head to flicks.com.au.

Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away. The end of every month is a good reminder that titles on Netflix don’t last forever (outside of the service’s original programming, of course). Even with all of the TV shows and movies coming to the streaming service in the month ahead, it’s time to take note of the ones on their way out.

If you’ve been meaning to have a teen movie marathon, now’s the time. At the end of the month, a handful of beloved aughties teen movies like Sleepover, A Walk to Remember, and the excellent Emma Stone-starring comedy Easy A are on their way out. Or, for a totally different kind of viewing experience, you’ve got one more month to catch Martin Scorsese’s mob classic GoodFellas and binge the TV thriller Bates Motel, imagining Norman Bates of Psycho‘s origin story. Find out what else to get in one last watch of below.
