This Month’s Highlights

Available February 1

For the made men: Goodfellas

If you haven’t seen the greatest movie of the 1990s yet, I’m not sure what else to tell you. Martin Scorsese at the top of his game? Three hours of swooping-camera, freeze-frame voice-over, escalating-tension filmmaking bliss? A mob meltdown with massive consequences that somehow makes time for digressions into art appreciation and Joe Pesci savagely beating a guy because he found him amusing? If you’re only exposure to wild man Marty comes from The Wolf of Wall Street, make some time for Henry Hill and his gang of miscreants. Available February 1.

Available February 2 and February 23

For the sci-fi lovers: Altered Carbon and Mute

Another month, another pair of absurdly expensive Netflix original productions. Which of February’s two sci-fi projects will capture the public’s imagination this time? Will it be Altered Carbon, the gritty detective series set in a world where consciousness is digitally uploaded, like Paul Verhoeven directing an episode of Black Mirror? Or will it be Mute, Duncan Jones’s missing-persons case set in a “cyberpunk Berlin” that seems to be yet another take on the Blade Runner aesthetic? As long as they’re both better than Bright, be happy. Altered Carbon premieres February 2, Mute premieres February 23.

Available February 1

If you’re looking for a laugh: Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

“The wrong kid died” takes on a whole other meaning when you think about the ignoble fate this hilarious send-up of music biopics met at the box office a decade ago. Thankfully, John C. Reilly’s goofball rock-star persona has since found a cult following, as Jake Kasdan’s epic spoof continues to suck up new fans faster than Dewey can plow through musical eras (and drugs). Amazingly, the songs are damn good too: You’ll hear the title track a dozen times, and you won’t mind. Available February 1.
