Last Chance to Watch! What’s Leaving EPIX This August

As we say goodbye to summer, we also bid farewell to three classic movies. All incredibly different but all exceptionally epic in their own right and genre. So take what’s left of Summer 2015 and fit some time in between beach days for a few movie nights. You won’t regret it!


Roman Holiday – Leaving EPIX 8/31

Taking a stay-cation this summer? No problem. If you haven’t been to Rome, this movie is the next best thing if you’re looking for a taste of this iconic city. Hepburn plays a rambunctious princess who escapes the tiring and repetitive life of a royal and opts for a cute haircut and a holiday fling with the one person who could expose her big secret.

What you can expect:

Audrey Hepburn at her finest and a dashing Gregory Peck as the newsman torn between his big story and his feelings for the Princess.

Troll 2 – Leaving EPIX 8/31


Any movie that’s been dubbed the “worst movie of all time” needs, no, it absolutely demands your attention. Don’t bother going to Rotten Tomatoes. I’ll do you the honor of telling you it got a whopping 6% rating on the Tomatometer, but do yourselves a favor steer your eyes away from the ratings, viewers. This cult classic is a must see.

What you can expect:

  1. Cheesy electronic keyboard music
  2. Despite what the title says, there are NO trolls, but there are Goblins. Still cool.
  3. The acting is so bad, it’s good, it’s laughable. A drinking game can be easily created here.
  4. Special effects. Not exactly special.

Put all your cinematic stuffiness aside and enjoy this movie for what it is. One hilarious disaster.


Something Wild – Leaving EPIX 8/31

something wild still 7

Bad girl Melanie Griffith kidnaps yuppie-yearning-for-more Jeff Daniels in order to have a presentable “husband” at her high school reunion. I know what you’re thinking: If only this option was realistic for the rest of us… The problem? Other than the kidnapping felony.  Her real husband is fresh out of jail and jonesing for some jealousy-inspired violence.  Fun fact: Ray Liotta made his first big screen splash as the ex-con hubby, and his explosive scenery-chewing offers a delightful peek at what’s to come.

What you can expect:

Chemistry, handcuffs and a black bobbed wig.

We’ve got a truly diverse and entertaining batch of movies leaving us this month. Don’t miss your opportunity to watch them before they go!
