Happy holidays to us all. There are some delightful additions to the Netflix lineup coming this month, from early ‘90s kid favorites to Netflix original movies and exclusives.

Here are our top picks:

For the Love of Spock, Dec. 1: Star Trek actors William Shatner, George Takei, Simon Pegg and others discuss the legacy of Leonard Nimoy and his portrayal of Mr. Spock. Will make Trekkies ugly cry.

The Crucible, Dec. 1: Taking it way back to junior year literature class with this classic.

National Lampoon's Animal House, Dec. 1: Toga! Toga! Toga!

We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story, Dec. 1: One of the movies that made me instantly fall in love with dinosaurs and New York City.

White Girl, Dec. 1: A much-talked about and controversial indie about a young college freshman who attempts to get a drug dealer out of jail.

Colony, season 1, Dec. 13: Los Angeles has been invaded by outside forces (aliens?), causing a huge rift between residents and the government. Not full blown sci-fi or dystopian drama. Just right. Stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead).

Barry, Dec. 16: Australian actor Devon Terrell plays a 20-year-old Barack Obama, who's just arrived for his junior year at Columbia University in 1981. This year is supposedly pivotal in establishing Obama's views on race, government and want it means to be an American. We are going to miss President Obama so much.

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, Dec. 25: Come for the Avengers, stay for the Captain America/Winter Soldier bromance and BLACK PANTHER.

And the rest...
