If you haven’t watched this movie for the hundredth time, then you probably haven’t been spoiled by the massive amount of syndicated play it has gotten. If you haven’t seen it in a while check it out. It stars Bruce Willis at his finest.
2. Better call Saul: Season 1 (February 1st)
The prequel/spinoff to the insanely popular series Breaking Bad, Better call Saul features con man James Mcgill becoming the lawyer, Saul Goodman. He’ll do anything to save his clients, as long as he doesn’t have to go to court.
3. Collateral Damage (February 1st)
The one of the last films Schwarzenegger made right before he set his sights on political office. In it he plays a fireman who will stop at nothing to track down the people responsible for killing his family. Give it a shot, it’s not as bad a movie as people make it out to be.
4. Full Metal Jacket (February 1st)
Thought to be one of the best war movies ever made. Watch as a group of marines survive the harsh training of boot camp only to go onto partake in one of the most brutal battles in all of the Vietnam War. Also it features R. Lee Ermey’s legendary performance as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman.
“Walk down the right back alley of Sin City and you can find anything.” One of the many lines from this fantastic adaptation of Frank Miller’s gritty crime noir graphic novel. Watch as the multiple stories of Sin City collide as one intense event spills into another.
6. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (February 1st)
Is it the worse Star Trek movie of all time? Pretty close but if you haven’t taken the opportunity to see this film for all it does wrong then now is your chance. Watch it and you can answer the important question of “Why does God need with a starship?”
Despite its high reviews and enchanting story by Neil Gaiman, it often feels like this movie doesn’t get the respect it deserves for the intense piece of high flying fantasy it is. Watch as a man tries to win the love of a woman by tracking down a fallen star, only to be taken on a journey beyond his wildest imagination.
8. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (February 26th)
The sequel to one of the best martial arts movies ever made. Michelle Yeoh returns as Yu Shu Lien and by the look of the trailer the high flying acrobatics are back as well. Even if you’re not a fan of late sequels, this one looks promising to say the least.
9. Fuller House (February 26th)
In an effort to cash in on Nostalgia, this revival of a classic TV show comes along. This time, it’s the oldest daughter D.J. who is raising three sons with the help of her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy. Will hilarity ensue or will it be as absent as the Olsen Twins’ return to this reunion?
