Netflix adds a couple dozen movies to the service this month, including the new Netflix film “Malcolm & Marie,” starring John David Washington and Zendaya.
That movie was filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, “Malcolm & Marie” is a “bottle episode” of sorts, with the two leads mostly just hanging in a house together. The plot focuses on a couple talking about past relationships in their nice home. You can watch the trailer below.
Netflix also adds a few movies from the recent past, including “Shutter Island” and “War Dogs.” Seemingly more than a month late, the service brings ”National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” to its offerings on Feb. 1.
But save for “Malcolm & Marie,” this may be the most underwhelming month for Netflix additions in a long while. The service has made a habit of adding roughly 60 movies each month, but this February only gets about half that. Nothing much stands out with the new Netflix Original shows, either.
You’d think that the long dreary stretch of pandemic winter would be the exact moment to be overwhelmed by content to help pass the endless indoor time. Perhaps you can use Netflix’s missed opportunity to check out one of the many, many other streaming services that have debuted as of late.
Netflix also loses 25 movies this month, including “The Other Guys,” “Easy A” and “GoodFellas.” Watch them while you can!
