Autumn's on the approach, and while the leaves fall and blow off the trees next month, so will a pile of movies and TV shows off Netflix.

Here's something that's definitely not shagadelic, baby: Barely after its arrival on the Big Red Streaming Monolith in July, the Austin Powers trilogy will already head back into cryogenic slumber. "Air Force One" will get ... off ... Netflix's ... plane. And here's a brutal blow: Fight-happy films "The Karate Kid" and "Kung Fu Panda" AND "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" will all kick it elsewhere by the end of September.

The clock will hit midnight on the excellent low-key sci-fi indie gem "Midnight Special"; it's strike three for the critically acclaimed trio of "The Queen," "Boogie Nights" and "The Pianist"; and just about all of the "Star Trek" on Netflix will have to live long and prosper on another streaming service. 

That's a lot of fallen films to start the fall – and that's just the beginning. Here's the full list of departing movies and TV shows next month:

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.
