As 2018 slinks off into the abyss, we’ll lose some good Netflix watches as we flip the longest year ever the finger. But before we pour one out for the lost we’ve gotta take a look at what’s coming in like a bright and shiny New Year’s baby.

TIDYING UP WITH MARIE KONDO

If you’ve tried to get your life together since 2014, chances are you’ve read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo or at least heard of the KonMari method. If you haven’t, get with the program and watch this show. Marie Kondo, lover of all things decluttering, helps regular folks like us clear out the mess and choose a little more joy. 10/10 would binge on a down day.

We all remember watching it happen. The rich ready to live it up and instead getting stranded on random islands with only Kraft single sandwiches to show for it. And somehow JaRule was involved. Well, now Netflix promises to bring us the whole ugly and somehow still hilarious story. Buckle up, it’s sure to be a bumpy ride.

The Mummy & The Mummy Returns – Streaming 1/1/19


Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and Oded Fehr are shining lights in this superior duo of campy remakes. Watch white people messing around with stuff they shouldn’t in Egypt. Creepy villain? Check. Squealy British sidekick? Yes. The Rock as a horrible CGI scorpion man? Abso-freaking-lutely. Watch these two. You’ll be happy you did.
