WASHINGTON -- Netflix plans to remove 80 movies from its queue and add new movies come July.

Mashable reports this year's purge is much smaller than in previous years. Netflix had removed nearly 2,000 movies in April 2013 and 1,000 in March 2012.

The website Nerdiots compiled a list of movies that will no longer be streaming on the Netflix service, including Rocky and its sequels.

Nerdiots also found that Netflix will be adding bigger titles before this fall. The Karate Kid trilogy, The Parent Trap and Bad Santa are just a few additions to the library.
