It’s safe to see after December lots of us are ready for a month of minimum booze and maximum chill.

Luckily, Netflix seems to understand the vibe and is dropping some cracking films in the coming weeks.

Whether you’re after a classic like Top Gun or Brokeback Mountain, or you’re in the mood for something gritty and new like The Pale Blue Eye, we’ve got you covered with our best recommendations on what to steam on Netflix this January.

Here’s to a month of nail-biting films and indulgent relaxation.

We’ll cheers to that.

The Pale Blue Eye

Christian Bale stars in this new grizzly mystery thriller set in 1830. Adapted from Scott Cooper’s novel of the same name, this whodunnit is giving The Terror meets The Crucible vibes. It’s cold, it’s gothic and it’s tense. Perfect for a cosy January night in, we’d say.

Available on January 6

You People

Comedy legends Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy star in this awkward, no-nonsense comedy about a couple fighting against cultural differences, generational divides and societal expectations in order to stay together. It’s a trip (and a calamitous fall face first) into modern love, and all the messiness it entails.

Available January 27

Dog Gone

No prizes for guessing what this new cheesy Netflix original flick is about. Yep, that’s right: a dog goes missing. Essential viewing for dog lovers, not so essential for everyone else. But if you’re after a warming watch on a miserable day, then this is pawfection.

Ah, a classic. This 2005 epic love story follows two sheepherders stuck in 1963 Wyoming as they embark on a passionate affair. The cast isn’t bad either, with Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal as the star-crossed lovers. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must. Expect tears.

This sci-fi action film from 2002 still makes for gripping viewing twenty years on.

Even with the recent revival of this classic with all its shiny new scenes, the original does not disappoint. Heyday Tom Cruise, grainy images and those unforgettable quotes no remake could ever hope to deliver with the same magic, Top Gun 1986 will always be the best.

Bad Boys II

Bad Boys II hardly needs an introduction, but it does when it miraculously lands on Netflix, promising a night in at its best. The Miami Police Department cops are back at their (second?) best, with Will Smith, Michael Bay and Gabrielle Union starring in this classic. Not to be parred off in favour of new releases, there’s a reason this franchise is a cult staple.

Stand By Me

Get your tissues out. For a poignant stroll into the trauma, hilarity and often-overlooked seriousness of childhood, Stand By Me is still as brilliant now as it was in 1986 when it was released. The film, directed by Rob Reiner and based on Stephen King’s novel, follows four friends as they take a hike and discover a corpse. What follows is many things – but if one thing is for sure, it’s wholly underrated.
