April, we hardly knew you. You're swell, but its time to move on.

Lately, it has been hard for me to get all that excited about any of the catalog titles coming or going from Netflix. This month, however, there are three that stood out to me. So, let's have a look.


Released in 2004, I've never had the opportunity to talk about "Closer" in a professional sense. Directed by Mike Nichols and adapted by Patrick Marber from his stage play, the narrative sees Dan (Jude Law), a journalist, torn between his current girlfriend Anna (Julia Roberts) and the younger, wilder Alice (Natalie Portman). To complicate things, Alice isn't sure if she prefers Larry (Clive Owen), a doctor, to Dan.

I was fortunate enough to see the stage version of "Closer" in London. It was one of the first plays to incorporate the influence that the internet fundamentally changed relationships and how people meet. It feels a little pedestrian now, but it was groundbreaking in 1997. It's been years since I watched the film. Might be a good time to rectify that. (Leaving 5/31/22)

Downton Abbey: Series 1-6

You might be aware that "Downton Abbey: A New Era." the newest chapter in the Downton Abbey saga. will be pleased on May 20, 2022. So, this gives you plenty of time to revisit or discover the popular television series that preceded the films. (Leaving 5/31/22)

Top Gun

We'll also be seeing the highly anticipated "Top Gun : Maverick" land in theaters on May 27, 2022. A refresh with the original will prepare you to catch all the Easter eggs that will be hidden in the new film. (Leaving 5/31/22)
