They say all good things must come to an end and while it may feel like Netflix is constantly expanding its already infinite library, each month the streaming service also says goodbye to dozens of beloved titles with very little notice. So even though you may be tempted to rewatch Friends for the hundredth time or finally figure out what Bird Box is all about, you may want to put those aside for now and check out a few of the movies and TV shows that will be gone by the time February rolls around. With that in mind, here are five of the best TV shows and movies that are leaving Netflix this month.
Armageddon (January 14)
One of the best disaster movies of all time features Bruce Willis fully transitioning into the dad phase of his career as oil driller turned astronaut Harry Stamper. Seriously, if you don’t cry watching Harry sacrifice himself so that A.J. (Ben Affleck) can survive and marry his daughter Grace (Liv Tyler), there may be something seriously wrong with you. And despite recent backlash, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” still rocks.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (January 17)
Do you have the power to watch all 65 episodes of this beloved series before it leaves Netflix and moves to a farm upstate to live with your childhood pets? Maybe not but you should definitely watch a few episodes this week, as the show remains extremely fun for viewers of all ages. While it is undoubtedly sad to see this classic show go, die-hard He-Fans will be glad to hear that the documentary The Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will remain on Netflix.
She-Ra: Princess of Power (January 17)
While the reboot successfully debuted on Netflix last November, the original She-Ra‘s time on the streaming service is sadly coming to an end, so there’s never been a time to introduce your kid to the OG Adora, the ass-kicking twin sister of He-Man. If you start now, you may be able to binge all 65 episodes before they are gone for good or, at the very least, you could get through a couple of classic episodes.
Star Wars: Rogue One (January 18)
The first Star Wars movie not to focus on the story of the Skywalker family instead told the story of the group of rebels who risked everything in order to steal the plans for the Death Star to give the Rebel Alliance a chance against the almighty Empire. Rogue One is a dark but exciting film that works both as an intriguing chapter in the Star Wars universe and a standalone story.
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the live-action adventure, Dumbo, expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished, and dreams take flight. Dumbo soars home on Digital, Movies Anywhere, Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD June 25
Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (January 19)
Got three hours to kill? If so, you can’t go wrong revisiting this classic film where four hobbits, two humans, an elf, a dwarf, and a wizard team up to head to Mount Doom and destroy the One Ring. Fellowship has everything you could want in a fantasy blockbuster: beloved characters, thrilling action, and establishing shots that will make you want to book your next family vacation for New Zealand.
