With each new month, the list of new titles on Netflix is more and more about the list of new titles from Netflix. In February, Netflix has a brand-new sequel to the martial-arts classic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (titled Sword of Destiny), plus a standup special from Hannibal Buress, the new series Love from producer Judd Apatow, and the revived version of Full House, Fuller House, which may or may not star a ghost dog.

So February is almost upon us, and that means it’s time to make Valentine’s Day plans. Because I’ve got a newborn baby at home (and because I’ve always been cheap and lazy), this year I’ll probably sit at home and watch movies with my wife. If you’d like to go that route too, HBO NOW has plenty of appropriate options to choose from, including the single most romantic movie of 2015, Magic Mike XXL. What could possibly be more romantic than Joe Manganiello grinding a gas station soda machine? (I’m drawing a blank, but that might be because I keep getting distracted by Manganiello’s abs.)

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. But in lieu of Yuletide carols, maybe’ll give or receive an HBO NOW subscription this holiday season. If so, you’re definitely going to want to read the latest update of what’s coming to and leaving HBO’s stand-alone streaming service this December.

Things are about to get kinky on HBO NOW for the month of November. Fifty Shades of Grey arrives on HBO’s new streaming service on November 21, in both rated and unrated cuts. (My sources tell me the unrated version contains at least six additional shades of Grey!) Other new movies include the awesome spy pastiche Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Liam Neeson’s latest action vehicle, Run All Night.

Back in 2012, Disney and Netflix struck a deal that would allow all of Disney’s films — including Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars properties — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant, starting on January 1, 2016. As that date approaches, many have speculated openly about the Star Wars films finally coming to Netflix. There were even rumors recently that Netflix was prepping their database for the Star Wars movies, though Netflix denied those reports. While they have yet to comment specifically on the existing six films in the Star Wars library, Netflix did confirm that, as of now, they do not have the rights to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but are currently in negotiations to bring that title to their streaming library.

‘Beasts of No Nation’ Review: Netflix’s First Original Movie Needs to Be Seen on the Big Screen

Beasts of No Nation marks the streaming video giant’s first serious attempt to become a major player in the feature film world, the same way they’ve become a giant in the world of serialized TV. And what’s most surprising about that first serious attempt is the fact that Netflix made a movie that will probably not play very well on Netflix. Beasts practically demands to be seen in a movie theater, not just for its impressive cinematography and immersive sound design, but also because of its expansive runtime and harrowing subject matter — the plight of child soldiers in Africa.
