New On Netflix in February 2021

There’s a significant shift going on in ‘film’. You might have noticed that more and more A-listers are working with the streaming services, lately. That’s because the cinemas are struggling, and movie stars are sniffing out a paycheque where they can.

Gosh. Even Leo’s doing a Netflix movie. Poor guy. Just picture him; sitting in Netflix HQ at the very head of the boardroom table while a squad of executives simultaneously offer him a danish.

He’s thinking “I’m in the same room that ’13 Reasons Why’ was bought and sold. What has the world come to? I’m Jack Dawson, bitch.” with his $5,000 Italian boots rested on the back of a crouched Netflix intern. CEO Ted Serandos is hitting the panic button under the table, desperately trying to get as many high-end models into the room as possible “I’m sorry Mr Dicaprio, we should have prepared better-

Leo silences him by gently raising his index finger. He lights a cigarette.

Call me Arnie Grape,” Leo whispers, the intern quivering beneath his boots, wincing in pain as the cowboy spurs dig into his neck…

Anyway!

Best New Original Series

Firefly Lane

It’s gooey. It’s gushy. It’s oh-so-heart-string-pully. The masters of this kind of thing, Netflix bring you the story of Tully and Kate who meet as young girls on Firefly Lane. Over time they become inseparable best friends throughout 30 years of ups and downs. Starring Katherine Heigl as literally every character she’s ever played (aside from her excellent role in Knocked Up) and Sarah Chalke, who’s fine. She’s not great. But fine.

Release date: 3rd February 2021

Behind Her Eyes

Based on the No 1. best selling novel with *that* shock ending, Behind Her Eyes follows the entangled lives of single mother Louise and married couple Adele and David. A bit romantic, mostly thriller, this show ladders to an end that is touted as one of M.Night Shyamalanic proportions.

Release date: 17th February 2021

The Crew

Against a production budget of what looks like $15, The Crew stars the better actor from Hitch. A new sitcom of sorts, James plays the crew chief in a NASCAR garage who suddenly finds himself at odds with the ‘tech-reliant millennials’ (which is boomer-bait if ever we’ve seen it) who are brought in to modernise the team.

Release date: 15th February 2021

Tribes of Europa

Imagine if your iPhone suddenly just wen ‘nup, I’m done, ay.’ That’s essentially what we’re dealing with here. Set after the day our technology downed tools in 2029, Europa is what life could look like in 2074. The plot will see three siblings set out to change the fate of Europe, which now exists as microstates fighting for dominance – boasting a strong cast and decent SFX, this is a proper attempt at sci-fi.

Release date: 19th February 2021

Best New Netflix Film

The Last Paradiso

The story of impossible love and the dream of an indomitable man who has a sense of rebellion and justice coursing through his veins, The Last Paradiso is stunningly filmed and definitely requires an Adam Sandler palette cleanser afterwards.

Release date: 5th February 2021

Space Sweepers

Yet another instalment in the ‘earth is doomed, and humanity with it’ category. Chasing after space debris and faraway dreams in the year 2092, four misfits unearth explosive secrets during the attempted trade of a wide-eyed humanoid.

Release date: 5th February 2021

Red Dot

On a hiking trip to rekindle their marriage, a couple will find themselves fleeing for their lives in the unforgiving wilderness from an unknown shooter, with, you guessed it: a red laser sight which he expertly uses to mindf*ck his prey.

Release date: 11th February 2021

To All The Boys: Always And Forever

It started with an old love letter – and turned into a new romance. What does the future hold for Lara Jean and Peter? More importantly, who cares?

Release date: 12th February 2021

Best New Netflix Documentary

Strip Down, Rise Up

In an effort to reclaim their bodies and lives, a group of women explore the intersections of movement and meaning in a powerful pole dancing program, that frowns on slipping singles into waistbands.

Release date: 5th February 2021

Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

From the creator of The Ted Bundy Tapes comes a dive into crime’s darkest places. Naturally. The now-notorious Cecil Hotel grew in infamy when guest Elisa Lam vanished into thin air, but there’s more than meets the ‘No Vacancy’ sign, apparently.

Release date: 10th February 2021

Pelé

Arguably the greatest footballer of all time, this documentary tells the story ‘Pelé’, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he attained, both in life and after.

Release date: 23rd February 2021

Best New Netflix Anime

Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan

Release date: 18th February 2021

High-Rise Invasion

Part ‘Hunger Games’, part ‘Divergent’, a teen girl is teleported to a high-rise rooftop where she must choose between four dangerous options in a battle for her survival, in Netflix’ High-Rise Invasion. In advance, we don’t advise the ‘jump’ option.

Release date: 25th February 2021
