The Best Movies And TV Shows Coming To Netflix January 2022

The nightmare that is 2021 is almost over. Who knows what fresh horrors 2022 will bring?! Not me! But I can tell you what fresh content 2022 will be bringing to Netflix. Specifically, January 2022. The streaming service just revealed its lineup for the first month of the new year, full of new and familiar titles and, as usual, plenty of Netflix originals. Take a gander at what's coming your way at the beginning of 2022 below. 

The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window

This upcoming series is a satire of the types of recent popular thrillers that all inexplicably have "girl" or "woman" in the title – you know, like "Gone Girl," "The Girl on the Train," "The Woman in Cabin 10," or "The Woman in the Window," just to name a few. Kristen Bell plays a troubled woman who loves to gulp down entire bottles of wine. One night, she witnesses a murder across the street. Or does she? Like "Only Murders in the Building," this is a series that both parodies a particular subgenre while also embracing the tropes therein. 

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I will forever be salty that Sony didn't let David Fincher, Daniel Craig, and Rooney Mara adapt the "Girl With The ... " trilogy in full. Oh well, at least we have the nasty, darkly funny "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," in which Craig plays a reporter investigating a family, with Mara as the gothy hacker helping him out along the way. 

The Town

Ben Affleck's "The Town" owes a huge debt to crime thrillers that came before it, especially "Heat" and "The Friends of Eddie Coyle." But while it may be derivative, "The Town" is still a worthwhile movie, featuring Affleck as the leader of a team of bank robbers working out of (where else?) Boston. When Affleck finds himself falling for a bank employee (the always great Rebecca Hall) he robbed and kidnapped at the beginning of the film, it throws his entire operation in jeopardy. 

True Grit

It's incorrect to call the Coen Brothers' remake of "True Grit" underrated since it was a hit and ended up nominated for several Oscars. And yet it feels like folks have forgotten about this excellent post-modern Western. Hailee Steinfeld, in her breakthrough role, plays a young woman who hires a drunken, mumbly Marshall (Jeff Bridges) to help track down her father's killer (Josh Brolin). Also on hand: Matt Damon! 

Phantom Thread

Paul Thomas Anderson's gloriously funny "Phantom Thread" has Daniel Day-Lewis as a fussy fashion designer who falls for a mysterious waitress, played by Vicky Krieps. But nothing in this relationship is at it seems as Anderson keeps the audience guessing as to where all of this strangeness is going.
