Last Chance: HBO GO Movies Expiring At The End of August!


These 3 are actually expiring August 24th!

  • The Best Man Holiday – Sequel to The Best Man (1999)
  • The Counselor – Either you love it or you hate it. I hated it, but have a strange desire to give it another try. Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz
  • Enough Said – James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss

There are a lot of movies expiring, these are the ones I would want to catch. My personal suggestions in RED.

  • 8MM – remember this Nicolas Cage & Joaquin Phoenix thriller? SO GOOD.
  • 9 1/2 Weeks – You’ve heard about it all your life. Time to watch this classic with Mickey Rouke and Kim Basinger
  • The Abyss – James Cameron’s first voyage in the ocean is misogynistic, but the action is cool. Gee, sounds like Michael Bay.
  • Argo – Oscar winner directed and starring Ben Affleck. It’s really good.
  • The Beverly Hillbillies – Oh, for fun.
  • The Darjeeling Limited – Many don’t care for this Wes Anderson journey to India, but I love the dynamic between the three brothers.
  • The Dark Knight Rises – Have you seen this since the theater? Now’s the time.
  • Disconnect – Fantastically underrated starring Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard.
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Take a trip without leaving your couch.
  • Jawbreaker – Wow. Remember this? It’s just as good 15 YEARS LATER.
  • Leaving Las Vegas – Honestly, I’ve never seen it. Probably best to only watch once.
  • Madagascar – Adorable animated animals.
  • Meet Joe Black – I still don’t get this movie.
  • Midnight Cowboy – One of the all-time classics. See New York in 1969.
  • Nothing to Lose – Martin Lawrence and Tim Robbins in this hilarious buddy comedy.
  • Now and Then – Christina Ricci, Rosie O’Donnell, Thora Birch, Melanie Griffith, Gaby Hoffmann, Demi Moore, Ashleigh Aston Moore and Rita Wilson
  • Rushmore – An earlier Wes Anderson gem.
  • Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion – Oh, c’mon, you know you’re dying to watch this.
  • Seeking a Friend For the End of the World – Hilarious and sweet. Steve Carell and Keira Knightley
  • The Shining – The scariest movie EVER.
  • Swingers – Just as funny as when it was released.
  • Sunshine – If you’re any kind of sci-fi fan, you MUST SEE THIS. Danny Boyle directs. A team of international astronauts are sent on a dangerous mission to reignite the dying Sun with a nuclear fission bomb in 2057.
  • The Warriors – “Warriors….come out and pla-a-a-y…” A time capsule of 80’s New York.
