Netflix in February— Love is in the air?

 Popcorn for the many hours of Netflix-ing!

Popcorn for the many hours of Netflix-ing!

February 14 <Valentine’s Day> is a big deal…to some people. I get it — the butterflies, the flowers, and the chocolates — what’s not to love?

Well, if you’re like me, you may find it a bit odd that flowers and chocolates suddenly cost twice as much as any other day. And your favourite restaurant now has special day-of menu with an outrageous new price tag albeit with less food. This overpriced event, henceforth referred to simply as $$$ Day, is overrated. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be spending my $$$ Day at home binge-watching Netflix.

It looks like my friends at Netflix agree with me because there are plenty of new releases in February that are too good to miss! This is what’s coming out this month:

Cult Classics

  • American Pie — one of my favourite comedy series when I was growing up is finally online. Jim, Kevin, Finch, Nadia…the whole gang is back! And of course, Jim’s dad. I hope you’re as stoked as I am to go back to band camp.

  • The Hurt Locker — for all the Jeremy Renner fans, this war thriller was released to Netflix on February 1st and hundreds of thousands of viewers have already flocked to watch (and re-watch) it. Follow the final weeks of the bomb-disposal unit’s tour in Baghdad as things get increasingly dangerous — and more explosive.

  • Evan Almighty — arguably Steve Carrel’s worst movie ever! Or just simply the worst movie ever?…still worth checking out for Morgan Freeman and the hundreds of millions of dollars dumped into the movie to create the CGI animals on Noah’s Ark.

Notable New Releases

  • Everything Sucks! — calling all 90’s teens! This Netflix comedy original brings back good ol’ ’90s nostalgia through a battle between a drama club and an AV club. The first two episodes will be released on February 16th.

  • Altered Carbon — Based on Richard K. Morgan’s critically acclaimed novel, death isn’t permanent in this Netflix original released on February 2nd. From the amazing reviews, it looks very promising. 300 years in the future, human bodies are interchangeable and Takeshi, a soldier of an elite warrior group, is resurrected to solve a murder mystery.

  • Mute — A mute bartender is the main actor in this science-fiction movie from Duncan Jones (director of Moon and Warcraft). The bartender is on a search for his missing girlfriend in Berlin, and there’s a good chance Justin Theroux will do something creepy. Coming February 23rd!

These are just notable mentions but there are many others that I’ve outlined below. What will you be watching on $$$ Day?
