The best movies leaving Netflix, Amazon, and Max at the end of May 2023

As the summer months approach, streaming services are bringing in a fresh new batch of movies to watch. However, before we dive into what’s new on streaming for June, let’s take a look at some of the very best movies to watch before they leave Netflix, Prime Video, and Max (formerly HBO Max) at the end of the month.

Netflix has a solid selection of outgoing movies to choose from this month, including the 1982 sword and sorcery action epic “Conan the Barbarian” starring the inimitable Arnold Schwarzenegger and the hyper-violent action classic “First Blood” starring Sylvester Stallone, among others. “Conan the Barbarian” follows a young Conan seeking revenge on a ruthless warlord, while “First Blood” showcases Stallone’s leading performance as a Vietnam War veteran who just wants to be left alone.

On Hulu, make sure to catch “Unstoppable,” Tony Scott’s final film which retells the story of the CSX 8888 incident. Starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine, “Unstoppable” is a down-to-earth blue-collar drama that Scott blends with thrilling cinematic events.

Max is bidding farewell to “First Blood” this May, but it is a must-watch for anyone interested in the history of anti-war cinema in America. The movie features Stallone’s incredible leading performance as John Rambo, a highly skilled soldier hiding out in the forest and trying to avoid hurting anyone.

Finally, on Prime Video, don’t miss out on the culture-clash comedy and legal drama “My Cousin Vinny.” Joe Pesci delivers a terrific performance as Vinny, caring deeply for his loved ones, while Marisa Tomei steals the show with her sharp and hilarious performance as Mona Lisa Vito.

Lastly, the Criterion Channel is currently streaming Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi masterpiece, “Metropolis.” The film, which takes place in a dystopian city, is a towering achievement and a quintessential work in the canon of science-fiction cinema.

Overall, don’t miss out on these incredible movies leaving streaming services at the end of May. And stay tuned for what’s new on streaming in June!
