The Godfather Trilogy (leaving 1/1)
Was Francis Ford Coppola's mafia saga the original prestige television? Perhaps! Nonetheless, it’s classic cinema chock full of incredible performances, so if you've never seen the Corleone family masterpiece, or simply want to rewatch in binge form, you’ve got a couple days left to do so, and the chilly post-holiday cocoon is the perfect time to do just that. Don't feel bad if you want to skip the third installment.
It Follows (leaving 1/13)
David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows is one of the most unique horror films ever, and one of the scariest in recent history. While it’s up for debate what invisible demon is actually following a group of high schoolers, it’s basically sent to terrorize its next victim after somebody has sex, echoing the shame of an STI. The indie flick is crafted so hauntingly, you’ll be at the edge of your seat, albeit hiding under the covers, to see what lurks around the corner in this artful film that will certainly follow you once it ends.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (leaving 1/18)
The first official Star Wars spinoff movie polarized audiences by departing from the usual dashing heroism and Jedi maneuvers. The "mid-quel" -- taking place between Revenge of the Sith and 1977 original -- instead put the "war" back in Star Wars, featuring black-ops operations in seedier parts of the galaxy, scout missions across rainy terrain, resistance sneak attacks that brushed close to terrorism, and the pièce de résistance, an epic battle across ground, sea, and air that pushed the new hero, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), and the special effects team at Industrial Light & Magic to their limits. With the Death Star nearly operational, Rogue One is a ticking time bomb of a movie that fans of space-opera action will revel in time and time again.
