Before January 1st, news hit that your favorite streaming site’s favorite streaming site was dropping close to 100 movies from it’s collection. But good news came soon after when the news leaked that Netflix is adding a hefty list of new films.

One of the movies that seemed to have a strong online outpouring of support was 1997’s Good Burger. For those of us who like our cult-classics with a bit more edge, they also added the classic Mel Brooks’ farce Space Balls and the “I-Don’t-Care-If-It-Sucks-Or-Is-Kinda-Racist-This-Movie-Is-Awesome” king known as Big Trouble in Little Chinatown. And for the fine film connoisseur they also added American Psycho, Raging Bull, Hotel Rwanda, Iron Lady and Days of Thunder (IDC IDC IDC IDC). It wouldn’t be Netflix without a list of movies that you’ve never heard of but might watch on one really really boring day.

Since most of the country is stuck in a third (fourth?) Ice Age, why not take some type to peruse their latest offerings and watch a few new flicks. If you see something particularly good or awful, share it in the comments.
