Netflix, the company that made instant streaming movies a common household commodity, is about to take a major hit. The popular video service has had a contract with the Starz network for five years, but that contract expires as of today, February 28, and with it goes a thousand films. That's 1/20th of the content available on Netflix, which may not be the world's biggest fraction but does diminish Netflix's ability to dominate the instant streaming marketplace. Huffington Post had the story. Although the contract expires today, Netflix reassures us that the films will continue to be available through tomorrow, February 29th. 

Although the following films and many hundreds more should still be available via Netflix's DVD/Blu-ray rental service, if you want to see them instantly you'd better set aside some time over the next two days. Here is a short list of some of the best and biggest movies Netflix won't be able to stream any longer. Watch them while you still can…
