We can finally say it: 2020 is almost over. 

RECOMMENDED: This company will pay you $1,000 to binge-watch 8 road-trip movies

Whether that means that the bad luck that has accompanied this very odd year is also over with is yet to be seen, but one thing is certain: 2021 will come along with a slew of new Netflix TV shows and movies that will get you giddy with excitement. 

Among the exciting titles dropping on the streaming platform are the 1967 version of Bonnie and Clyde starring the wonderful Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty; a few iconic Leonardo DiCaprio roles, including the 1993 classic What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Catch Me If You Can with Tom Hanks; the always funny Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Amy Adams' and Meryl Streep's delightful Julie & Julia.

Other standouts include Eddie Murphy: Raw, the comedian's 1987 special, and a much-needed Netflix original that will teach us how to properly meditate: Headspace Guide to Meditation

Cheers to a new year and to hoping that it will be better than the last.
