It's the last day of a month, which means there's a lot of great movies waiting for you to watch before the calendar turns. However, which ones are most worth your time? That's where we're here to assist.

Weve got 15 high-quality movies for you to watch at home before they leave Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, or wherever they are currently located. These include some of the best action movies on Netflix, an uproarious LGBTQ comedy, hardboiled thrillers, and more.

The latest blockbuster from Christopher Nolan, Tenet, has left HBO Max. If you haven't had the chance to catch up with that particular brain puzzle, now is your chance.

Here are 15 of the greatest films that will be available for streaming by the end of July 2022.


Tiger Shroff is one of the few film stars in the world who has the combination of charisma, skill, and grace that he has developed. One of the best entry points for his distinctive brand of leading-man charisma is leaving Netflix at the end of the month.

Baaghi (which means Rebel) is played by Shroff, a full-blown professional martial artist who lacks the courage to take control of his life. Ronny must remove old enemies to save his lover from her kidnap.

Baaghi will leave Netflix on August 1st.

Before Midnight

Before Sunrise is the story of a blossoming young romance and Before Sunset is the story of how they got to know each other and all the difficulties and difficulties that come with it. Toussaint Egan returns as Celine and Jesse, the once-star-crossed couple who met on a train to Vienna in 1994.

On July 31, Before Midnight will be released on Criterion Channel.

The Birdcage

The classic Mike Nichols adaptation of La Cage aux Folles is a hilarious hybrid of your typical two totally different families having to reconcile when their kids fall in love romantic comedy. Nathan Lane, Robin Williams, Gene Hackman, and Dianne Wiest are all hilarious in this stalemate of culture clashes and the moral panic of American conservatism.

Maddy Myers has included Polygons in our list of the best LGBTQ comedy you can watch at home:

Nathan Lane is a funny, funny character in The Birdcage, who was also in the closet at the time. It's all the more astounding that Albert cant seem to pass as straight, not even for the benefit of his sons' extremely conservative family. Rather, the movies portrayals of two gay dads who were once normal

To quote a bird (albeit one that isn't found in a cage): It's a total hoot.

The Birdcage will be released on HBO Max on July 31.

Boyka: Undisputed

Undisputed, a prison boxing drama starring Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames, was released in 2002 by Walter Hill (The Warriors), and four years later, direct-to-video action pioneer Isaac Florentine took the series in a different direction with Undisputed II: Last Man Standing, a martial artists' alteration from boxing to mixed martial arts.

Undisputed III: Redemption was the first of two outstanding films to focus on Boyka, with the latter (Boyka: Undisputed) leaving Netflix at the end of the month.

It's okay to have seen the previous Boyka performances in the series, but it's not necessary. Just know Yuri Boyka is the most complete fighter in the world, and he has very conflicted feelings about his previous villainous actions. In this one, he accidentally kills a fighter in the ring and devotes his life to helping the fighters' widow.

Boyka: Undisputed is coming to Netflix on August 1st.

Burn After Reading

The Coen brothers' films are incredibly reflective of the places they are set in: Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Raising Arizona... Even their less well-known performances, like The Ladykillers, are solidly rooted in their own personalities.

Burn After Reading is one of their most impressive attempts at this, as a quintessential Washington, D.C., thriller through and through. Perhaps the dumbest conspiracy thriller of all time (this is meant as a compliment), Burn After Reading weaponizes government officials' paranoia and incompetence in a wicked dark comedy with an excellent cast.

Burn After Reading is coming to Hulu on July 31.


Collateral is a slick neo-noir film set on the streets of Los Angeles at night. When Jamie Foxx picks up a brutal contract killer (Cruise) as his fare, his night takes a turn for the unexpected. Manns crisp camera work coupled with the open streets make this a completely different kind of buddy road trip film.

Max's collusion with HBO Max will expire on July 31.

Devil in a Blue Dress

Denzel in a steamy noir thriller, Don Cheadle in a you have to see it to believe it role, and all the necessary components for a fantastic LA detective movie by Carl Franklin. PV

HBO's Max July 31 is the 31st of July.

The John Wick movies

The Wick franchise's former stuntman Chad Stahelski, who helms Reeves' character with a rifle and a sword, received a surprise award when it was first released in 2014.

The John Wick films will be released on July 31.

Magic Mike XXL

Magic Mike is even more rapturously joyous than the first, as it combines pleasure in its many forms. A film where the cast returns for a final job is also included.

Magic Mike XXL will leave HBO Max on July 31.


Here's to the basics of Speed, a fast-paced thriller that's been meticulously planned for maximum fun; a solid cast led by Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, and a delightfully wicked Dennis Hopper; and a tight script by future TV showrunner Graham Yost (Justified).

Speed will be removed from Prime Video on July 31.


What if Christopher Nolan wrote the script for a Call of Duty game and made it into a movie, and honestly, there is no better way to put this film into words.

Nolans' palindromically titled sci-fi thriller stars John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) as a CIA operative codenamed The Protagonist, who is recruited by a counterterrorism unit known as Tenet to prevent a renegade Russian oligarch from inciting World War III using technology that is harmful to both the present and the future.

Does this sound like a jarring thought? Definitely not, but thats neither the purpose nor the substance of the film's appeal. There are some of the greatest set-pieces and fight scenes Nolan has ever filmed, from the obtuse koan-like dialogue to the tense finale. Wait until you get a load of the reverse car chase midway through Tenet, or the temporal pincer maneuver of the films last film.

Tenet will leave HBO Max on July 31.

The Parallax View

Alan J. Pakula's unforgettable adaptation of Loren Singers introduces Warren Beatty as an investigative reporter who discovers a massive political organization that commits assassinations, making it a contemporary film. PV

The Parallax View will be released on July 31st by Prime Video and the Criterion Channel.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Dewey Cox is my personal favorite musician biopic, which is a completely fictional satire of the genre, full of funny gags and provocative criticism of well-worn tropes.

Dewey Cox's Story Leaves Hulu on July 31.
