June means it's time to officially leave behind the unpredictable mess than is spring in the Midwest. (Yay!) It also means it's time for Netflix to leave behind some movies and TV shows. (Boo ...)

Indeed, the Big Red Streaming Monolith recently announced its lineup of departures for June – and while it may currently be blockbuster season in theaters, it'll be bye-bye to blockbusters like "Bullet Train," "Ready Player One," "Godzilla" and "Meg 2: The Trench" on the streaming service. Elsewhere, "Talladega Nights" will shake and bake its way onto a different streamer at the end of June, along with the "Hotel Transylvania" movies and – for movie monsters with a little more bite – the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise. And you've got one last chance to SHOUT! with "Animal House," as the ribald classic comedy will graduate from Netflix later this month.

Here are the rest of the movies and TV shows you'll want to check out before they're gone from Netflix like the Chicago Cubs' early-season optimism.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
