Often misremembered as a Walt Disney film, Anastasia is an animated princess tale that was a beloved selection for many millennials.
The movie is a very loose adaptation of the myth of Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna, who allegedly escaped execution when when her family was killed by soldiers. It is a fantastical tale filled with strong voicing acting from Meg Ryan, John Cusack, Kelsey Grammer and Christopher Lloyd.
If you're looking to shake-up your kids' viewing schedule with a flick they may not have not seen, Anastasia is the perfect pick.prevnext
Many think of Will Smith's 2000s work to be mostly action blockbusters or dramatic fare, but Hitch is a notable exception.
Smith stars as Alex "Hitch" Hitchens who specializes in teaching men to win over the women of their dreams. He takes on a mild-mannered client (Kevin James), who is trying to win over a celebrity he works with.
Along the way Hitch fall for a gossip writer played by Eva Mendes, which lets Hitch try out his techniques himself.prevnext
Jaws is an essential entry in the world of cinema that should definitely be in your Netflix queue before it leaves.
The Steven Spielberg blockbuster is all about the hunt for a massive great white shark and is filled with more classic lines and sequences than we can describe here.
It is also worth nothing that Jaws' three sequels are also leaving the service on March 1, but we recommend focusing your time on the 1975 original.prevnext

The Craft has is cult classic with tale that provides a fun dose of '90s nostalgia. It's all about a group of teenage girls who learn withcraft to benefit their lives in high school, but things soon take go off the rail, as one would expect.
One of the best aspects of the film is the talented leading cast, which consists of Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True.

Sometimes you just need a good action flick to pass the time away.
A prime movie for this is xXx, the first entry in the spy franchise led by Vin Diesel.
Diesel's character, Xander Cage, on a mission to disrupt some terrorist activity, but — let's be honest — this movie is not about the plot. It is all about the high-octane action led by Diesel, and that is totally fine with us.
