• HBO Max is adding a bunch of great shows and movies in January, including The Little Things, The Dark Knight, The King of Staten Island, Reservoir Dogs, and Courage the Cowardly Dog.
  • HBO Max Originals worth checking out: Search Party, Gomorrah, and Locked Down.
  • You can see all of the HBO Max arrivals and departures for January 2021 below.

One of the interesting side effects of Netflix and Hulu being the only real choices for streaming movies and TV for years on end is that you begin to assume their models are the only models for releasing content.

Obviously, that’s not the case, and HBO Max continues to prove that there are other ways to dole out content every month, dumping over 100 shows and movies on January 1st. The variety of content is what I find most intriguing, with blockbuster movies like The Dark Knight mixed in beloved cartoons like Courage the Cowardly Dog and Batman: The Animated Series. Oh, and 12 oz. Mouse, one of the weirdest shows of all time. And then, at the end of the month, we get The Little Things, which is a brand new crime thriller starring Denzel Washington.
