Find out which titles will soon be leaving Netflix

With only a few days left in November, it's time to bunker down, avoid the crowds and catch up on a few titles before they leave Netflix, our affiliate KUTV reported.

The Crucible

In 1996 director Nicholas Hytner ("The Madness of King George") teamed up with Winona Ryder and Daniel Day-Lewis to bring Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" to the screen. Supporting actress Joan Allen received an Academy Award nomination for her performance as Elizabeth Proctor. Arthur Miller was also nominated for his adaptation of his stage play. While not quite the classic you might expect, "The Crucible" is a solid film with a message that, sadly, will always feel relevant and timely.

Young Frankenstein

I find it hard to believe that Mel Brook's "Young Frankenstein" was released before I was born. The film feels as fresh and funny as it did when I first saw it twenty-something years ago. Maybe its the dark humor. Or is it the performances from Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle and the effervescent Madeline Kahn? It's probably both as this parody of Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein" proves that a parody can be a tribute as much as it is satire.

Nightcrawler

When I'm not watching movies I'm manning the assignment desk. Part of my duties is to occasionally work with stringers (freelance photographers). So "Nightcrawler," while exaggerated, isn't nearly as outrageous as you might initially think. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Lou Bloom, a socially awkward young man, who is having a hard time finding employment. When he happens to come across a stringer shooting an accident, Bloom is inspired to pick up a camera himself and spend his nights listening to police scanners in hopes of getting exclusive shots of newsworthy travesties. Some people will do anything to get ahead of the pack. Anything. (Leaving 12/9)

The Queen of Versailles

Sometimes documentaries don't turn out as expected. When filmmaker Lauren Greenfield started filming "The Queen of Versailles" she thought she was making a film about a billionaire couple who were building a house that would rival the grandeur of Versailles. By the time she finished, the film the story was about a billionaire couple who were trying to pretend that they hadn't lost everything when the real estate bubble burst. (Leaving 12/13)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Considering it is based on an amusement park ride with a rather thin narrative, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" shouldn't have been remotely as much fun as it was. The fact that Disney's executives didn't know what to think of Johnny Depp's performance as Jack Sparrow and still let him go about his business is something of a miracle that we probably won't see again anytime soon. Of course it is Depp's performance, ironically, that launched the franchise. Having Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightleyhelped, as evidenced by the lackluster sequels, but it was Depp who made the film something memorable. "The Cure of the Black Pearl" is fantastic swashbuckler. Is it a bad thing that I wish that the franchise never existed beyond the first film? (Leaving 12/25)
