February, the month of hearts and chocolates, and what a wonderful time to watch movies to warm your heart. Well, for the most part. Our list isn’t very abundant with love and flowers. It may be hard to believe, but this month is actually full of thrillers and action-packed movies. But that shouldn’t stop you! These movies will do just the job for your bored hearts. Here are our top picks to watch out for this February.
The Space Between Us
Since its February, I thought it’d be nice to start the list off with a movie for those in the Valentine mood. The Space Between Us tells the story of Gardner Elliot, a boy born on Mars. He strikes up a friendship with a girl from earth online, Tulsa. And when he turns 16, he gets to go to earth and meet her. Unfortunately, scientists discover his organs can’t survive in Earth’s atmosphere. Of course, that doesn’t stop Gardner and he attempts to see more of the world with Tulsa despite all this.
I Am Not Your Negro
Racism has been an ongoing problem that continues to plague the world. Discrimination isn’t anything new nowadays, but back then it was way worse. James Baldwin made sure that he and every other black man was heard. I Am Not Your Negro is a screen adaption of an incomplete memoir he created before he died. Samuel L. Jackson is set to narrate this documentary.
The Lego Batman Movie
If you didn’t get enough of Batman in The Lego Movie, perhaps his own movie will satiate your need to see him once again. The lighthearted lego adaption of the popular superhero is sure to lighten your day.
Don’t Knock Twice
You read the title. Don’t knock twice. A mother who wants to reconnect with her daughter that she abandoned is about to find out how that and life is going to be so much harder when a demonic witch is out to wreck you. When you hear an urban legend, you should really avoid trying it.
Fifty Shades Darker
The sequel to the erotic Fifty Shades of Grey. After Ana leaves Christian in the first movie, Christian convinces Ana to resume their relationship and try again. But can it work a second time? If love’s what you’re looking for, then you might have found it here. With a whole lot of sexy and steam.
John Wick Chapter 2
After the events of the bloody first film, ormer assassin John Wick is forced out of retirement after he’s contacted by an associate he made an oath with for help. Soon, John Wick is in for a much difficult battle against opponents much more deadlier than the son of his former syndicate.
A Cure for Wellness
You know what? When your boss suddenly checks himself inside some sort of wellness center you’ve never heard about and doesn’t come back, isn’t it a better idea to Google it and call the police before you try going into some rescue mission? Nope. Mr. Lockhart doesn’t care. He’s going to do it if it means he’s getting a promotion. And now, he’s been captured and this Wellness Center is no wellness center. No one can leave after being diagnosed with this strange disease.
The last movie on our list goes out for those who’s in the mood for Valentines.
Sarah, a mother of a beautiful little girl, goes on an unplanned roadtrip with her best friend Mindy. Everything is going well and it’s another nice memory to keep at the back of your mind… Well at least until Sarah and Mindy get physically intimate and everything is awkward. Sarah leaves Mindy and never talks to her again.Of course, that silence is never going to last. Mindy invites Sarah to her wedding and the two friends find themselves reconnecting.–ERNEST TO GOODNESS
