Max is scheduled to remove 110 movies from its streaming lineup on August 31. Here are the five you should check out before they leave, in our humble opinion.

Bullitt (1968)
This gripping crime thriller directed by Peter Yates stars Steve McQueen as the super-cool police lieutenant Frank Bullitt who’s assigned to protect a witness in a Mafia case. The operation goes south when the witness is murdered, triggering a high-speed pursuit unlike any you’ve ever seen. The film’s iconic Mustang car chase is still the best ever put on film.

Airplane! (1980)
Airplane! is a comedic masterpiece that takes off with relentless hilarity and never loses altitude. This zany parody of disaster films flawlessly navigates a whirlwind of gags, puns, and visual comedy, offering a relentless barrage of jokes that hit with pinpoint precision. The film’s ingenious wordplay, slapstick antics, and deadpan performances create an uproarious atmosphere that remains unmatched in the realm of cinematic comedy. The motley cast includes Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (!), Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty.
Dunkirk (2017)
Director Christopher Nolan’s gripping retelling of the evacuation of British forces from Dunkirk during World War II is a masterclass in tension and storytelling. With its innovative narrative structure, breathtaking visuals, and Hans Zimmer’s haunting score, Dunkirk creates an immersive experience that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

Lethal Weapon (1987)
Lethal Weapon is a gripping action film that masterfully blends heart-pounding excitement with compelling character dynamics. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover’s chemistry as the mismatched duo of a volatile cop and a wise family man brings humor and depth to the story, while the adrenaline-fueled sequences and intense plot keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Richard Donner’s skillful direction and the film’s iconic soundtrack contribute to its status as a classic in the buddy cop genre, delivering both thrills and a touch of poignancy that make it a must-watch for action movie enthusiasts. (The three sequels are also leaving on August 31.)

The Accused (1988)
The Accused, directed by Jonathan Kaplan, is a riveting and impactful legal drama that tackles difficult themes of sexual assault and justice. Jodie Foster delivers an exceptional performance as Sarah Tobias, a young woman who becomes the victim of a brutal gang rape, and her portrayal of both vulnerability and strength is both heart-wrenching and powerful.
