Netflix canada

Did you decide to take a staycation during the holiday season? Good for you! Hopefully, you planned ahead and stocked up on the essentials (read: chips, candy and booze). What to do with the few days off? We have a recommendation. Stay at home and watch some movies and TV shows on Netflix Canada.

Whilst not as robust as Netflix US’ selection, Netflix Canada’s available movies and TV shows have greatly improved over the years. Check out what’s coming in January to Netflix Canada.

Movies

Adrift (January 1)

Join Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin asn they get on a boat and travel the seven seas. Based on a true story, this movie finds the young lovers on a yacht that’s set adrift after being caught in a hurricane.

A Quiet Place (January 2)

It’s so difficult to find a good post-apocalyptic movie these days. That’s why if you haven’t already seen it in the theatres, we recommend checking out A Quiet Place on Netflix Canada. Husband and wife IRL John Krasinski and Emily Blunt play parents trying to keep their kids alive from sound sensitive aliens. Trust us, this one is a lot of fun.l

Bring It On (January 2)

The classic cheerleader movie starring Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dukshu has aged gracefully. It’s still a lot of fun to watch, and a much better movie than the five (!) sequels. We didn’t realize that it had spawned an entire franchise, but you can binge four of the sequels on Netflix Canada, if you are so inclined.

The Bourne Ultimatum (January 2)

The first four Jason Bourne movies will be available on Netflix Canada starting January 2. Back in the day, we never expected Matt Damon to become a big action star. We always thought of him as a funny guy, you know? In any case, if you haven’t read the books nor watched any of the movies, allow him to change your mind.

Ant-Man & the Wasp (January 29)

If you told us to pick a super hero from the Marvel universe that we think might make a lot of money in the movie theatres, Ant-Man was probably not going to be on top of the list. Paul Rudd, a favourite actor of ours since his time on Friends, is extremely effective as a tiny super hero with a big heart.

Incredibles 2 (January 30)

It has been years since the first Incredibles came out, but watching the sequel will be like visiting with an old friend. It’s a nice family movie, best enjoyed with the kids (a lot of popcorn).

Other movies: Blackhawk Down (January 1), My Best Friend’s Wedding (January 1), Solo: A Star Wars Story (January 9)

TV shows

Titans (January 11)

Marvel might be doing better at the box office, but we’ve found that DC’s TV game is on fleek. Titans follows the story of Dick Grayson (the original Robin) after he breaks up with Batman to put up his own superhero team.

Carmen San Diego (January 18)

Netflix’s animated revival of the educational 1990s series of video games features the voice of Gina Rodriguez as the titular hero. You can still learn a lot of geography whilst watching this one.

Other TV shows: The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 4 Part 2 (January 25)
