What to watch in February 2021
But that's no reason to fear going to the movies; certainly Minari and I Care A Lot are likely to be part of the awards talk, no matter what shape or form these eventually take.
Here's what else is good to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Neon NZ, and Disney + during February.
The iconic Muppet Show with Kermit and all the gang gets its first full outing on Disney + and a chance for newer viewers to see where the anarchy all began. With brilliant guest stars, and top notch work from the Jim Henson company, The Muppets were and still are iconic.
Best you binge their fuzzy frantic antics as soon as you can.
Stylish, shallow, enticing and intriguing, I Care A Lot is the film you didn't know you needed to see until you did, thanks to a stunning performance from Gone Girl's Pike.
Go in blind, it's the best - and only - way.
While travelling with top-secret documents on a B-17 Flying Fortress, a female WWII pilot encounters an evil presence on board.
Directed by NZ's Roseanne Liang, this action horror film is a mix of genres and a film that revels in its unpredictability according to reviewers.
Sensitively told and maybe lightly handling the moral elements of its central premise, Tucci and Firth are the reasons to see this film.
Heartfelt and earnest, this one last road trip benefits greatly from their chemistry - even if the conundrum at the centre of the story seems to veer away from any great rhapsodising or preaching.
