Berlin: European Film Market Throws Spotlight on African Content

This one stat shows just how much content Netflix has lost in the past two years

Two years ago, a Redditor by the name of clayton_frisbie cross-referenced IMDb's list of the 250 top rated movies with the Netflix streaming catalog. He found that 49 of the top 250 movies were available on Netflix US — not an incredibly impressive percentage, but a solid selection of well-regarded films nonetheless. Since 2014, Netflix has lost a great deal of content. In fact, the content library has nearly been cut in half since 2012 , and with it have gone many popular films. DON'T MISS:  The Walking Dead season 7: First episode title and synopsis revealed This week, Streaming Observer went back to the IMDb Top 250 to see how many films still remained on Netflix. It turns out that Netflix US now only has 31 movies of the top 250 movies. Here they are in order of where they appear on the list: Pulp Fiction Forrest Gump The Usual Suspects Saving Private Ryan Back to the Future Gladiator Sunset Boulevard Cinema Paradiso Django Unchained The Shining American Beauty Reservoir Dogs Braveheart Amélie To Kill a Mockingbird Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Amadeus The Hunt Good Will Hunting V for Vendetta Trainspotting No Country for Old Men Into the Wild There Will Be Blood Spotlight The Princess Bride Zootopia The Truman Show Jaws Ip Man Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Netflix has made it increasingly clear that it would rather focus on providing quality original programming than licensing deals, but it is a bit surprising to see so many popular and critically-acclaimed movies leaving the service. As long as Netflix exists, it will continue to license movies and television shows that it thinks will keep old customers on board and bring new customers into the fold ( as evidenced by our monthly New on Netflix posts ). But as the company continues to focus on original content, licensed content will vanish. (webremix.info)

'We're all Africans' remark 'distorted'

Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep on Thursday said her "We're all Africans" comment was taken out of context, writing in the Huffington Post about the controversy she sparked up amid Hollywood's ongoing diversity debate. Streep, who earlier this month headed up her first international film jury at the Berlin Film Festival, said her comments to an Egyptian reporter during a press conference about whether she was familiar with cinema from Africa and the Middle East, were "distorted."
