Although it’s a bit quieter than the last couple of months we still have some great films being added to Netflix in the new year. Fans of action films will appreciate many of this month’s additions including the Marvel superhero film X-Men: Days of Future Past (20th Jan); Assassin’s Creed (28th Jan), set in both medieval and modern times and based on the great video game series; Netflix Film Polar (25th Jan) which sees a retired assassin going head to head with younger, ruthless killers out to kill him; Close (19th Jan) sees a female bodyguard and a rich heiress go on the run to save their lives; and, finally, we have The Great Wall (12th Jan) – a monster film set around the Great Wall of China.

For those who prefer science-fiction and fantasy we have the cerebral Inception (15th Jan) in which dream-technology is used to try implant ideas into people’s minds; Anime monster movie GODZILLA: The Planet Eater (9th Jan) is the third and final Godzilla anime planned for a Netflix release; and, finally, there is the giant robot-fighting film Pacific Rim (1st Jan).

  1. Any chance that solo is the starwars, as USA Netflix has got it,if not when are we getting it ? USA also got Indiana Jones films also seems they got the best stuff as always.

    1. It’s not the Star Wars story. That’s called “Solo: A Star Wars Story” as opposed to just “Solo”. No idea when it would be on though but I suspect it’ll be on NowTV/Sky first before Netflix.

  2. Netflix starting to slip in entertainment value and content…
    Another poor months showing and the amount of foreign filler garbage is on the increase too…

    1. Your right there seems to be more foreign stuff on here which won’t keep subscribers when Disney comes along I for one will be swapping if to much foreign continues, I pay for English programs .

      1. I didn’t realise there was an ‘English only’ subscription option. Can you send me a link and I’ll write a news post about it 😉

    2. …but everyone complains that they want the same content worldwide. Guess what? There are foreign people in the world. In most cases content IS offered worldwide and that means not only foreign countries getting English content but England getting foreign content. Thing is, you don’t have to watch it so I honestly wouldn’t let it bother you.

      1. I don’t mind foreign content when it’s top quality and i encourage Netflix to go after the very best foreign content but what Netflix are doing is using garbage foreign content as filler and the very annoying thing about that is I’m paying for it and it’s becoming more and more frequent…
        If there is a market for foreign garbage content then spin that off into another Netflix service and reduce my monthly subscription…
        I suspect why Netflix are adding so much foreign poor quality movies and shows is to say we have hundreds upon hundreds of new movies and shows added each year to keep up appearances while Western content creators and entertainment companies start pulling their content off Netflix for their own streaming services…

  3. I haven’t subscribed for over 2 months now for the first time in four years. Too much sub-par Japenese Rom-Com rubbish has been released for far too long now despite cancelling perfectly good series that were getting into their stride.

    1. OK, so Mozilla (and Facebook) don’t like my new certificate… Basically it’s too new for them – Comodo rebranded to Sectigo recently and Mozilla doesn’t recognise it. I’ve got a few other bit’s I’ve passed onto the hosts with a view to resolving this. Thanks for mentioning it anyway!
