What's in and out of Netflix in January

What's in and out of Netflix in January

A new year is about to begin and maybe one of the best resolutions you can make is this - watch more Netflix! With all the new additions to the video streaming service's lineup in January, this change won't be hard to achieve.

A ton of great content is coming our way next month, hopefully ushering in another great year of classic movies, TV shows and Netflix originals we can binge watch and play over and over again.

Leading the list of classic movies are these all-time favorites. Faster than a speeding bullet, all four Christopher Reeve-led Superman films will be arriving on Netflix on January 1. These films have sparked our collective imaginations decades before the current superhero movie craze and they're definitely worth revisiting.

Look out for "Superman The Movie," "Superman II," "Superman III" and "Superman IV: The Quest For Peace" and relive the never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.

As an added bonus, Bryan Singer's reboot/sequel "Superman Returns" (2006) starring Brandon Routh will also be available.

Another good addition to Netflix's roster is the 2004 heist movie "Ocean's Twelve," the sequel to 2001's "Ocean's Eleven."

Featuring an all-star cast including George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Andy Garcia, the film continues on with the exploits of Danny Ocean and friends, as they are pursued by casino owner Terry Benedict for the massive heist they pulled off in the first film.

This enjoyable blockbuster hit starts streaming on Netflix on January 1.

Prepare for some serious thrills and chills because "Heeeeere's Johnny!"

Stanley Kubrick's 1980 thriller "The Shining," starring Jack Nicholson, will also be available on Netflix starting on January 1. Witness (and re-witness) Jack Torrance's terrifying descent into madness within the walls of the haunted Overlook Hotel.

This classic is regarded as one of the best horror films ever made so if you're a Netflix subscriber and you haven't seen it yet, this is your chance.

For the young (and young at heart), check out Sony's film adaptation of the popular video game series "Ratchet & Clank." This computer generated sci-fi comedy flick includes voice-over work from big hitters like Sylvester Stallone, John Goodman, Rosario Dawson and Paul Giamatti.

Don't worry if you haven't played any Ratchet and Clank games before, with its "save the galaxy" plotline, lovable characters and great humor, this animated film stands great on its own and is a flick that the whole family will surely enjoy.

"Ratchet & Clank" will be available on Netflix starting on January 9.

Coming soon

Other noteworthy additions in January include the Jackie Chan comedy "Around the World in 80 Days," the Mark Wahlberg dramedy "Boogie Nights," Disney's "Alice Through the Looking Glass" and the Netflix return of perennial favorites like "Braveheart," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and "Caddyshack."

January is also a great month for Netflix original content, as it debuts a slew of new programs like the animated series "Tarzan and Jane" and one of the Netflix shows we are most excited about - the reimagining of  "Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events" starring Neil Patrick Harris.

What's out?

As usual in Netflix's monthly cycle, it's in with the new and out with the old, as we say goodbye to another set of movies and TV shows.

Included on the chopping block are the great ESPN 30 for 30 sports documentaries, the TV classics "Murder, She Wrote" and "Columbo" and beloved films like "Breakfast At Tiffany's," "Coming To America," "Sixteen Candles" and "Saving Private Ryan."

Fortunately, the outgoing list is short but catch anything you may have missed before the new year starts and get your weekend Netflix binge game face on!
