As temperatures drop, so to does your desire to leave the house. Luckily, there’s always Netflix for those frequent nights (and days) spent in. As usual, Netflix alters the lineup with excellent additions. But a refreshed roster means a few gems slip away.

Arrivals best picks: Arguably the greatest buddy cop movie of all time “The Beverly Hills Cop” makes its way to Netflix. “D2: The Mighty Ducks” skates onto streaming. 1989 classic “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” is a worthy addition. While it may not quite live up to its predecessor, 2001’s “Hannibal” starring Anthony Hopkins is an excellent choice for a cozy night in. Might I suggest the Chianti and fava beans?

Quite possibly the most substantial new title: “Captain America: Civil War.” Remember that Disney/Marvel streaming deal with Netflix? Well, it’s mostly manifested in Netflix originals like “Luke Cage,” “Jessica Jones,” and “Daredevil.” However we’re now seeing Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) flicks hitting Netflix.

Departures best picks: With every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Translation: streaming titles leave Netflix as well. Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Event Horizon” disappears into the void. “The Da Vinci Code” goes on an adventure to non-streaming land. “Top Gun” gets shot down. And notably “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” starring Kevin Sorbo departs from the lineup. Check out my interview with Sorbo from Wizard World Comic Con Raleigh 2014.

Looking for the latest of what’s coming and going on Netflix? Here are the December 2016 Netflix arrivals and departures. What are you most excited to see arriving, and what will you miss the most?
