Anyone who knows me knows that I live my life vicariously through 2-diminsional on-screen movie stars. And this dude isn’t picky: Horror? Done. Comedy? Yup. Fish out of water story of a boy & his pet Rooster? Where do I sign up? But it is important to plan ahead when it comes to movie choices. So I have listed your absolute M U S T S E E films for February to entertain & delight. And fateful friends you are in luck…February’s best releases are front loaded so you have the whole month to get to the theater!!!
- “How to be Single” // Why? Rebel Wilson, that’s why. She’s the “Tasmanian Devil of Hollywood” & there are sure to be some seriously quotable lines that we will all be referencing for the next calendar year. And let’s be real…who doesn’t love a 20-something comedy about a group of girlfriends?! If you don’t, why are you reading this? Go throw a football or something. (Friday 2/12)
- “Deadpool” // For all of my superhero buffs out there, this one is going to take it to a whole new level. The first comic book adaptation to ever receive an R rating is sure to delight, offend, and of course, make for some pretty serious action-adventure. I would be remiss to leave out the fact that this film has by far had the best marketing of the recent years…Google the movie posters…it’s well worth your time. (Friday 2/12)
- “Zoolander No. 2” // The sequel to 2000’s fashion farce will undoubtedly be a runway hit. Derek and Hansel (OMG, he’s so hot right now!) have to find a way to end an organization that is slowly killing off the world’s most attractive people… I SMELL OSCAR!!! Okay, maybe not, but it’s guaranteed to be a hilarious ride filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, walk offs, & major major fashion moments! (Friday 2/12)
- “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies”// Look, everyone likes Jane Austen & Zombies, so why not combine the two?! Add in period costumes & finely tuned British accents, and I am basically already drizzling butter flavor on my popcorn. The classic story of Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy is set to the tune of flesh crazed zombies brought on by the black plague. In one word…umm, charming. (Friday 2/5)
- “The Choice“// It’s the latest in the long line of Nicholas Sparks’s book adaptations, and I will simplify the plot for you: Boy meets girl, girl thinks she likes boy, boy is rough around the edges and, of course, has touchably soft hair. It will probably have a few thunderstorm make out moments & will all be set against the polite Carolina backdrop. (Friday 2/5)
