Netflix Is Adding 45 New Movies and Featuring Lindsay Lohan at Her Best

Mean Girls, Legends of the Fall, Parent Trap, Basic Instinct, Netflix

With every cloud comes a silver lining. We read that once in a yearbook because it was our own quote under our senior picture.

But what we're trying to say is that even though you guys might be really bummed that Netflix has pulled almost 80 movies from its streaming service starting today, there's some good news. Netflix is also adding over 40 movies to its lineup. Sure, we're only getting about half the amount of movies that are being taken away from us (we did the complicated math), but it's higher than zero (again, more math). And more than one of the new movies stars Lindsay Lohan in her prime, so that's something to be pumped about, right?

NEWS: Netflix glitch creates hilarious plot mashup descriptions

You can read the full list of new movies coming to Netflix here (some were previously announced), or we can just talk about 12 flicks we're most excited about:

1. 12 Angry Men

We remember seeing this movie for the first time and it blew. Our. Minds. One room. 12 men. Who knew so much tension could be created with so little production? If you haven't seen it yet, we highly suggest watching it first.

2. Mean Girls

Lindsay Lohan's best film? Discuss. Personally, we think Mean Girls is really  a celebration of Rachel McAdams.

3. The Karate Kid and The Karate Kid, Part II

The originals, sans Jaden Smith. Whether that it a pro or con for you will tell us everything we need to know about your life.

4. Basic Instinct

We all know you're going to pause, rewind and replay that particular moment at least four times. That's what the Internet is for, folks. Just watch the movie.

5. Fever Pitch

It's a guilty pleasure at best, but Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon are at their most awkwardly adorable. Yankees fans probably will skip this one, though.
