Happy January! We made it to another month, another year, and another decade!

As you recoup from your New Year's hangover and try to remain faithful to your resolutions (or at the very least, one of them), let's take a look ahead at all the great movies, both classic and recent, that are hitting the major streaming platforms this January.

Netflix originals seem to be taking a bit of a backseat this month, as the streamer continues to promote its late-2019 awards contenders; however, actor and producer Tyler Perry will make his Netflix debut on January 17th with "A Fall From Grace." This month, though, will not be short on classics to stream on Netflix. All that are now available include Steven Speilberg's '60s-set caper "Catch Me If You Can," Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller "Inception," '90s whale tale "Free Willy," Harrison Ford's turn as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan in "Patriot Games," Guillermo Del Toro's wartime fantasy "Pan's Labyrinth," and the original "True Grit," featuring John Wayne in an Oscar-winning performance. Later in the month, you can enjoy some horror with 1981's "The Evil Dead" (available 1/10) or some character-driven drama, with Michael Fassbender as "Steve Jobs" (available 1/16) or Helen Mirren as "The Queen" (Elizabeth II, that is -- available 1/23).

Amazon's Sundance pickup from last year, "Troop Zero" will make its streaming debut on January 17. Also this month on Amazon, get primed for the streaming debuts of Ari Aster's Eurotrip from hell, "Midsommar" (available 1/3), Jason Momoa's take on Arnold Schwarzenegger's sword-and-sandal classic "Conan the Barbarian" (available 1/6), Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader's family dramedy "The Skeleton Twins" (available 1/17), and Stephen Merchant's WWE biopic "Fighting With My Family" (available 1/30). Classics now available to watch include Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller "Pi," Robert Downey Jr.'s suave and boisterous "Sherlock Holmes," and a spattering of O.G."Trek" including the first three originals, "Star Trek: The Motion Picture," "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," and "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock."

While Hulu's offerings won't differ too much from Amazon's, subscribers can look forward to a handful of recent releases making their streaming debut, including off-beat actioner "The Art of Self-Defense" on 1/6, documentary "Honeyland" on 1/20, horror/thriller "The Prodigy" on 1/23, sports drama "Brian Banks" on 1/27, and indie drama "Luce" on 1/27.

HBO subscribers can look forward to the streaming premieres of crime drama "American Animals" (1/1), faith-based drama "Breakthrough" (1/2), historical drama "The Aftermath" (1/4), biopic "Tolkien" (1/5), historical thriller "The Little Stranger" (1/7), Keanu's kick-ass action follow-up "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum" (1/11), monster sequel "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" (1/18), and Conjuring Universe entry "The Curse of La Llorona" (1/25).

On Disney+ you'll find "Cool Runnings" and "Holes" unleashed from the vault -- both on 1/1 -- followed by 2019's live-action remake of "Aladdin" on 1/8.

Finally, throughout the month, some recent theatrical hits will become yours to own. This includes Linda Hamilton's franchise return in "Terminator: Dark Fate," Harriet Tubman biopic "Harriet" and award contenders "Parasite" and "Pain and Glory" -- all dropping on 1/14. Also look out for Stephen King's "Shining" follow-up "Doctor Sleep" dropping on 1/21.

Below we highlight some more selected top films debuting this month on each platform. Be sure to also head to our new Streaming page to see what's new, what's hot, and what we recommend to watch right now. Happy movie watching!
