There are lower than two weeks remaining in 2020. If that’s not excellent news, I’m unsure what’s.
This 12 months has been brutal. The COVID-19 pandemic has modified all the pieces (type of like when the Hearth Nation attacked). Faculties are closed. Theaters are struggling. Small companies and native eating places had been hit onerous by lockdowns and stay-at-home orders.
All over the place you go, you see folks in masks. Hell, after I’m watching TV exhibits or films made earlier than all this and I see folks in a crowded subway automotive not carrying masks, I believe to myself “How had been we not carrying these items all alongside?” I imply, neglect the pandemic, there are such a lot of germs on the market. The flu, for example.
I assume I simply don’t see myself going to crowded locations like grocery shops or public transit with no masks on sooner or later, vaccine or no.
However I digress. The purpose is, 2020 is nearly over. 2021 comes with the promise of quite a few vaccines to assist us attain that coveted herd immunity level, or no less than sluggish this sucker down.
And a technique you may assist, is to maintain social distancing and spend extra time enjoying video video games and watching Netflix from the security and luxury of your personal house. Therefore, this record of recent titles headed to Netflix in January of 2021.
Clearly, the largest and most enjoyable newcomer to Netflix’s catalog is the third season of Cobra Kai. I wrote a bit about how terrific this show is right here (the place you too can take a look at the Season 3 trailer).
However there are others. A number of the films I’m wanting ahead to in January embody the 1967 basic Bonnie and Clyde and, from the identical 12 months, Cool Hand Luke. If you happen to like older films, these are each nice picks for a wintry night movie-thon.
For mafia film followers, Netflix is an odd beast. I swear I’ve written about Goodfellas coming and going from the streaming service half a dozen instances. Effectively, it’s again subsequent month. So is the 2006 crime drama The Departed, which is great.
For lighter fare there’s Superbad, the primary Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes and What’s Consuming Gilbert Grape, one in every of Johnny Depp’s first (and greatest) films. If you happen to’re feeling dangerous about Depp’s troubles, perhaps give this one a gander. It’s nice.
All these movies land on January 1st, however extra are scattered throughout the month. The Woman with the Dragon Tattoo lands on the fifth. It’s positively value watching. And one in every of my favourite films of all time—Robin Williams’ Hook—arrives on January fifteenth. I like that film a lot. It’s additionally one in every of Dustin Hoffman’s most lovable roles (because the titular villain).
Right here’s the large record:
