What’s in and out of Netflix in February

What’s in and out of Netflix in February
Netflix

January is about to end and Netflix started the year with a bang by bringing in a big list of classic movie favorites we don't mind seeing over and over again.

Now that February is upon us, it's looking like another excellent batch of movies, TV shows, and original Netflix programming is coming our way. It even includes another potential retro-nostalgia homage series that could be the comedy equivalent of "Stranger Things."

Here are February's main highlights:

Altered Carbon (Netflix Original)

Fans of science fiction/high tech fare like "Ghost in the Shell," "Black Mirror" or "Blade Runner" will be delighted with the debut of this new Netflix Original Series, "Altered Carbon."

"Altered Carbon" is based on the 2002 Richard Morgan cyberpunk novel of the same name. It's a noir-style detective thriller set 500 years in the future when human consciousness can be stored digitally and downloaded into new bodies (called sleeves), allowing humans to survive death as memories and entire personalities can simply be "resleeved" and transferred as needed.

Trouble starts when a rich aristocrat named Lauren Bancroft apparently commits suicide under mysterious circumstances. When his consciousness is resleeved, it is found that he has no memory of the last 48 hours before his death. The consciousness of a deceased soldier Takeshi Kovacs is then downloaded to a new body to help solve the mystery and prove that Bancroft was, in fact, murdered.

The series stars Joel Kinnaman, Renée Elise Goldsberry, James Purefoy and Will Yun Lee.

"Altered Carbon" will start its Netflix life on February 2.

6 Days (2017)

"6 Days" is a retelling of the London Iranian Embassy hostage situation that occurred in April 1980. In this gripping and action-packed biographical thriller, armed terrorists infiltrate the embassy and hold at least 26 hostages, threatening to kill them if their demands are not met.

The movie follows the events over a period of six days, the entire duration of the crisis, from the initial siege to the rescue operation conducted by the highly-trained British SAS forces.

It stars Jamie Bell, Abbie Cornish, Mark Strong and Martin Shaw with Toa Fraser as director.

"6 Days" storms to Netflix on February 8.

Everything Sucks! (Netflix Original)

Now that the 1980's pop culture-inspired phenomenon "Stranger Things" is a proven hit, Netflix will try and tug our nostalgic sensibilities once again with this new original series, "Everything Sucks!"

This time, instead of a 1980's horror and sci-fi homage, this series is a parody of mid-1990s' teen fashion and culture as it puts two groups of Oregon high school misfits, the AV Club and the Drama Club, against each other. If you grew up in the 1990s, expect tons of recognizable references in this one.

This Netflix Original series stars Jahi Di'Allo Winston, Peyton Kennedy, and Patch Darragh.

"Everything Sucks!" starts smelling like teen spirit on February 16.

Other highlights:

Other notable additions include both "Kill Bill" films, the entire "American Pie" movie series, crime classic "GoodFellas," Will Smith in "Men in Black," the "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy, Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro in both "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers" and last year's animated comedy "The Emoji Movie."

A bunch of exciting Netflix Originals are also coming in February including Snoop Dogg's youth football league reality show "Coach Snoop," romantic comedies "When We First Met" and "Irreplaceable You" and sci-fi thriller "Mute."

And as usual, as new content comes, we'll have to say goodbye to other favorites as well. Among the notable movies saying goodbye are Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas," the entire runs of "Family Guy" and "Burn Notice" plus "Top Gear" Series 19 to 23. If you haven't seen these before, make sure you catch them before they leave Netflix next month.
