These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in February, but feel free to check out all of February's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.
Friday, February 7th
Director: George Clooney
Why? I'm not usually into war-related movies, but I have to say that I'm interested in the story behind this movie. Plus, what a great cast.
Friday, February 14th
Director: José Padilha
Why? It's been years since I've seen the original, but I'm hoping that better technology will make this a great remake.
Director: Akiva Goldsman
Why? The trailer for this movie honestly intrigued me. Plus, I really like Colin Farrell and Jennifer Connelly.
Friday, February 21st
Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
Why? While the story should be interesting, I think my main draw for this one is the cast.
Why? Kevin Costner in an action flick? I'll buy that. Amber Heard as his handler? Not as much, but I can easily forgive it since Amber Heard!
Friday, February 28th
Director: Dean Israelite
Why? Sure there are plenty of time-travel stories, but how many deal with the consequences of screwing things up? And before you sigh and groan about the use of found footage, remember that this is one of the few times it's been used for a movie outside of the horror genre. I thought it worked pretty well for Chronicle.
