As Netflix heads into its first legitimate Oscar season, the streaming giant is hoping to pull out nominations and wins for “Roma,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” and “Girl.” Lest Netflix lose sight of its one true purpose, the platform will be streaming the entire “Indiana Jones” franchise beginning in January. The streamer announced today its full list of titles for the new year, and it’s the expected mix of cult hit indies and little-known original films.

Quentin Tarantino fans can rejoice in January: “Pulp Fiction” heads to Netflix in the beginning of the month, and the classic continues to be endlessly re-watchable. Guillermo del Toro fans can also peruse “Pan’s Labyrinth,” and relive a simpler time before the Mexican filmmaker’s polarizing “The Shape of Water” Oscar win. David Mackenzie and Taylor Sheridan’s 2016 crime drama “Hell or High Water” also becomes available on the same day.

For those looking for something a little lighter to celebrate the new year, Netflix will also have comedies 1991’s “The Addams Family,” Jon Favreau breakout “Swingers,” and the legendary “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” On the Netflix Originals slate, be sure to check out Icelandic filmmaker Ísold Uggadóttir’s stunning immigration drama “And Breathe Normally.”
