Watch These 89 Movies Before Netflix Purges Them On Jan. 1

Draw the blinds, turn off your phone. You have four days.

Starting Jan. 1, a number of licensing deadlines in Netflix’s ever-shifting instant streaming catalog will come and go. For you, that means the service will lose 89 movies (by our count) and five TV series. These kinds of changes are pretty standard for Netflix, though the site makes it noticeably difficult to figure out exactly which films are about to expire.

Thanks to one very helpful Reddit thread, we now have a (somewhat) comprehensive list of what won’t be available at the start of the new year. There’s no telling when Netflix will bring some or all of these titles back so, if you’ve been holding out on seeing Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, you might want to fire it up before Wednesday.
