February 14 – Madame Web

Another movie for the girls! The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which tends to cater to male superheroes, takes a thrilling turn with this all-female-led narrative. Following the enigmatic origins of Cassandra Webb, aka Madame Web (Dakota Johnson), a paramedic who has the power to see the future, she forges an allegiance with three young women, Julia (Sydney Sweeney), Mattie (Celeste O’Connor), and Anya (Isabela Merced), as they try to survive a deadly present to fulfill their destinies.

February 14 – Poor Things

Giving the same feel as “Lisa Frankeinstein,” with the lead bringing a corpse to life to curate them into a version of a human they desire, “Poor Things,” goes into a peculiar, disturbing way that is not usually appropriate for younger audiences.

This unsettling narrative tells the story of Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe) as he stumbles on the dead body of a pregnant woman and removes the baby from the womb. Imitating Frankenstein, Dr. Baxter replaced the woman’s brain with that of her unborn fetus, giving the infant Bella (Emma Stone) an adult’s body.

February 14 – I Am Not Big Bird

This one’s for the boys! After five years, this will mark Enrique Gil’s comeback on the big screen as he headlines this comedic film. Luis Carpio (Gil) finds himself entangled in a case of mistaken identity as he shares a striking resemblance to a popular porn star known as Big Bird in Thailand.

This irreverently humorous story of boyhood to manhood will also be graced by the presence of Nikko Natividad, Pepe Herrera, and Red Ollero, among others.

February 21 – The Holdovers

Despite giving the feel of a Christmas movie, “The Holdovers” is the wholesome feeling you might need this Valentine’s Day. This heartwarming narrative, set in the 1970s at an exclusive boy’s boarding school, follows the experiences of the “holdovers,” the students who cannot go home over the holidays, and the two Barton staff left to supervise them at a time of loneliness. The movie stars award-winning actors Paul Giamatti and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.

February 21 – Night Swim

There will be plenty of cuddles in this movie that is perfect for horror fanatics in a time of love month.
