What’s New on Netflix: February 2018.

Several highly anticipated originals premier in February, alongside an odd hodge-podge of mainstream movies.

What's New on Netflix: February 2018.
Nice play, Cloverfield, hi-five!

So…what’s new on Netflix besides The Cloverfield Paradox?  The sudden release of the third movie in the giant monster franchise after having only premiered the trailer an hour earlier during half-time made Netflix a big topic of conversation.  While Cloverfield is a bold move, there are a ton of other original films on the service in February as well.

It may be close to Valentine’s Day, but Netflix seems convinced that what your budding relationship needs is dick and fart jokes.  The entire (ill-advised) American Pie franchise comes to the streaming platform this month, along with other silly comedies like Evan Almighty and Meet the Parents.

The rather uninspiring line-up of classic movies highlights Netflix’s ever-growing list of originals and exclusives.  Looking to one-up Amazon’s sci-fi series, Electric Dreams, we get the intriguing dystopian drama, Altered Carbon.  For fans of foreign cinema there is a violent thriller out of South Korea (Mute), a live-action remake of Fullmetal Alchemist from Japan, and a romantic comedy out of India (Love Per Square Foot.)  Add this to a solid roster of documentaries, TV series and comedy specials and Netflix in February should suit you better than chocolates and roses.

Our Pick:  Mute.

A man goes missing for 19 days and has no mystery of what happened to him.  Now he has to unravel the dark and bloody story behind his own disappearance.

South Korean thrillers have been top notch for about a decade now, going all the way back to Park Chan Wook‘s masterful Oldboy.  This film channels the same desperation and dark vibe without feeling like a copy.
