If your New Year's resolution is to stop spending hours watching Netflix, 2014 might actually be your year.
Gizmodo, by way of Reddit, compiled a list of the best movies and shows the Netflix gods will be nixing in 2014. Here is what you're going to miss:
EXPIRING JANUARY 1, 2014Dark Shadows (original from late 1960s) Saturday Night Live The 2000s Mr. Bean The Kids In The Hall (This one is an outrage.) The Rundown Brick Being John Malkovich Back To School Battle Of Britain Born On the Fourth Of July Braveheart Body Of Evidence Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo Man On The Moon Lionheart 1492 Conquest Of Paradise Killer Klowns From Outer Space (What?! NOOOO!) Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind FX Do The Right Thing Desperado Up In Smoke Can't Hardly Wait ("Denise Fleming is a tampon.") Capote Biloxi Blues Seed Of Chucky (Where am I supposed to get my possessed-dolls-have-a-serial-killer-gender-creative-baby fix now?) Jarhead As Good As It Gets In The Name Of The Father Inside Deep Throat (documentary) You have to watch this one if you haven't yet. It's amazing. I'm Gonna Get You Sucka In Like Flint Hard Target Foxy Brown Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell Gallipoli Half Baked ("Abba Zaba, you're my only friend.") Flashdance 50 First Dates For The Love Of The Game The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas (This one infuriates me... Best Burt Reynolds musical ever.)

Tales From The Crypt: Bordello Of Blood Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight The Woman In Red Top Gun Street Fighter TNT Jackson Serpico Seed Of Chucky Scary Movie Running Scared Troll II True Grit (1969) War And Peace Talk Radio War Games We Were Soldiers What Dreams May Come Windtalkers World Trade Center The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes The Odd Couple (1968) The Mask Of Zorro The Great Train Robbery The Faculty The Dream Team Best Of Times Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot Species
I'm totally pissed about "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" getting axed. Not so much for myself, as I have both movies on DVD and VHS, but for those of you who might not experience the majesty of great cinema once you can't stream them. At least we still have "Arrested Development" to keep us warm though.
