When you're browsing Netflix for great films and newer titles, you may have noticed a trend.  Many of these titles come courtesy of Starz.  The 29th marks the last day of the contract between Starz and Netflix, which means over 800 movies are leaving the streaming service. Not all of those flicks are great of course, but Netflix is losing titles like 'Young Frankenstein,' 'Toy Story 3,' and the 'Spartacus' TV series.  It also marks the loss of 'The Pixar Story,' which is a very cool documentary on how the company got started and clear up any confusion about why Steve Jobs was honored at the Oscars - dude took a big risk on Pixar and it paid off.

This is a big blow for Netflix, but the company has plenty in the works.  Netflix has some very strong original programming on the way including the return of 'Arrested Development' and has also signed a deal with The Weinstein Company for exclusive rights to stream 2012 Oscar nominees and winners like 'The Artist' and 'Undefeated.'  They won't be found on HBO or Showtime - just Netflix.
