Another month, another bunch of movies available to stream through Netflix. Hooray! I don't have to endlessly search through categories passing by movies I've seen a hundred times. Or at least I won't have to for the next week or so.
It used to be that I would eagerly anticipate what Netflix would be adding at the beginning of the month. The last couple updates have been fairly disappointing unfortunately. There were a couple good films that made the cut, but Netflix has been adding mostly crap to their cues.
February looks to be breaking that trend however; this month's list of films looks very promising. If you find yourself at home, bored with nothing to do, check out some of these films and TV shows coming to Netflix.
This 2015 independent didn't get a wide release, so I wasn't able to catch it in theaters. But it is coming to Netflix on February 2nd, which is great for any film fan. Rick Famuyiwa's Dope is about a geek living in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles that features a great cast and soundtrack. I can't wait to check this one out tomorrow.
2. Full Metal Jacket
Stanley Kubrick's seminal war movie that focuses on the psychological impact of the horrors faced in Vietnam. Like anyone who's heard of Kubrick, I've seen this movie countless times, but it's a classic so I'll probably be watching it again. Kudos to Netflix for adding a bunch of Kubrick classics the last couple of months, including The Shinning, 2001, Eyes Wide Shut and A Clockwork Orange. Now if they just add Dr. Strangelove we'll be all set.
3. Better Call Saul Season 1
This Breaking Bad spinoff garnered acclaimed reviews and a bunch of award nods. Alas, I no longer have cable so I was unable to see what the hype was all about. Not anymore though, as Netflix is adding the first season of this AMC original this month. I know what I'll be binge-watching.
4. Sin City
Widely considered one of the best comic book adaptations of all time, Robert Rodriguez's black and white noir is a must see. The movie is made up of interweaving tales from a cop looking for redemption to a hitman looking to stop a gangland war. If you haven't seen this one yet, make a note to put this on your list.
5. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Start up your engines and get ready to laugh. Talladega Nights is comedic genius Will Ferell's take on NASCAR driving. While not as laugh-out-loud funny as Anchorman, Talladega definitely has its moments. If you're looking for a something to make you laugh look no further.
6. Mad Men, Season 7 Part 2
AMC's critically acclaimed drama comes to a close in it's 7th and final season. I haven't gotten a chance to watch any of this show, which is about ad men in the 1950s, but I've heard nothing but good things. Now that the whole series is finally on Netflix, I might just set aside a couple of weeks and check it out.
7. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny
The long awaited sequel to Ang Lee's classic hits Netflix on February 26th. The first movie is known for it's martial arts and gorgeous cinematography. Whether the second entry is as good as the original, we'll have to wait to see.
Do you have a list of movies that you want to recommend? Now you have a place to do it.
