As the year comes to an end, there is so much to look forward to in the new year. To keep things lighthearted—we've all had enough bad news with all the things going on in the world—let's talk about ways we can kick back and ring in the new year with pleasure, laughs, and excitement. Yes, I'm talking about taking the time for yourself to unwind in front of your television, and watch the new shows and movies Netflix will be showcasing this January.
Here are some of the movies and shows I'm excited to watch on Netflix, while I anxiously await another seasons of House of Cards and Strangers Things:
American Sniper: I still haven't seen American Sniper so I know what I'll be watching this in January. This movie, starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, and Luke Grimes, is about U.S. Navy Seal marksman Chris Kyle and his chilling story.
American Beauty: A classic, and a movie I love watching again and again. You can't go wrong watching anything starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening.
Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass: Alice in Wonderland adventures with a twist, starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter? Yes, please. Adding this to my must-watch list.
Big Hero 6: My family loved this adorable movie, and we can't wait to re-watch it on Netflix.
Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger: This was a great film to experience on the big screen, and now we get to watch it from the comfort of home in January.
There are so many great shows to see, like Netflix Original series Take the 10, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Coin Heist, Tarzan and Jane, Clinical, and season 4-6 of Shameless, series 22 of Top Gear, (my boys are excited about this one!) season 6 of Shameless and season 5 of Suits—but I am most excited about the new Netflix Original Riverdale—yes, you read that right: Riverdale. A Netflix show all about everyone's favourite comic book gang, Archie, Betty and Veronica? I'm so looking forward to this one, and I know my friends are, too. It's a little darker and way more spicy than the comic books we were used to reading when we were growing up, and it sounds absolutely perfect.
What shows and movies are you most looking forward to watching on Netflix in 2017?
