Netflix drops 79 movies, adds 45 new ones

Ever log in to Netflix to watch one of your favorites only to find out that it is no longer available for streaming? I know, it annoys me too.

The reason is simple enough though. Occasionally Netflix's licenses for certain movies expire and it has to remove those titles from the rotation. Luckily, the streaming video service also regularly adds news films as well.

The list of films that Netflix recently lost includes 79 movies, including some really popular action and drama titles like "Rocky," "Taxi Driver," "Chinatown" and the James Bond classic "From Russia With Love." Comedy favorite "Spaceballs" and sci-fi classics "Terminator" and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" are also gone.

On the plus side, Netflix added 45 new films to its streaming service. Highlights from the list  include "12 Angry Men," "Blue Chips," "Patton" and "The Hunt for Red October." For the kids, Netflix added "The Parent Trap," "Karate Kid" and "Karate Kid II." You can look at the entire list of movies added and removed here.
