Here’s What Netflix Is Adding and Removing in January 2016

It’s once again that time, as Netflix has revealed which movies and TV shows we can expect to gain, and which we can expect to lose in the coming month. And while we’re getting a lot of cool new stuff, the stuff we’re losing amounts to a bloodbath of quality.

In addition to Oscar favorites like There Will Be Blood, Million Dollar Baby, and Gladiator, we’ll be losing stone cold classics such as Lawrence of Arabia, A Clockwork Orange, and animated icons The Nightmare Before Christmas and Dumbo! We’re even losing Almost Famous, a wonderful movie that deserves to find new audiences, now more than ever.

But that’s not even the most troubling part, as we’re poised to lose a slew of action classics from Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not only is Netflix clearing out its entire Rocky movie archives, they’ll also be ditching Conan the Barbarian as well as all of the Rambo movies left to stream. It makes for a remarkable imbalance with what we’re actually going to be getting this month. Outside of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 10, New Girl Season 4, and Parks and Recreation Season 7, I’m struggling to find much for the January 2016 list worth getting all that excited over. But I suppose opinions will differ.

Find out what’s arriving on Netflix and what’s leaving January 2016 below:
