Scroll through the slideshow to see the movies you can’t miss seeing that release in February.
Kurt Warner’s story was made to be a movie. It finally is. Kurt Warner is a real life rags to riches, or Cinderella story. A grocery store clerk who became an NFL MVP and Super Bowl champion. The story follows Kurt and Brenda Warner’s life and love story. A bond that got them through life’s roller coaster ride. Zachary Levi and Anna Paquin play Kurt and Brenda, and do a great job at it. This is a feel-good inspiring real life story that’s satisfactory and enjoyable, even if you don’t know much about football or follow the sport. It’s ultimately a story of perseverance and love. AMERICAN UNDERDOG is out on Digital, on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on February 22 Gucci is the name of the most popular fashion brands worldwide, but the story of the Gucci family is just about to be as famous. Lead by a star-studded cast consisting of Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto and Al Pacino. It’s acting at its finest. The coolest thing about these superstar performances might be their unrecognizable appearances (ex: Jared Leto). This is a very entertaining and suspenseful movie (especially if you are hearing about the Gucci family story for the first time). It’s a lengthy runtime, but one that will keep you glued to your seat. HOUSE OF GUCCI releases on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on February 22 The fight for your life is on for James Malone (Bruce Willis), an ex-cop serving a life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. It’s a hunting game where Malone is given a shot (no pun intended) at freedom, but he must evade and survive a group of hunters that are after him on a remote island. Action packed film with an intriguing concept, similar to that of movies like ‘The Condemned’ and ‘The Most Dangerous Game’. Neal McDonough also stars. If you’re a fan of this sort of type of film, you’ll enjoy what ‘Apex’ has to offer. APEX releases on Blu-ray and DVD on February 8 Will Smith has been Oscar worthy for a long time, if his performance in ‘King Richard’. The true story of the Venus and Serena Williams. Even though the Williams sisters are the pride and joy of this film/story, it’s central figure is their father Richard (Smith). This is an inspiring feel-good story of a father’s love and commitment to his daughters. King Richard is a rightful Oscar nominee and a must-see movie. KING RICHARD is out now on Digital, on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on February 8 It can be said that often enough music has a healing power to it. Brought to you by Questlove, a fascinating documentary about the famed summer of 69. While everyone was talking about Woodstock, hardly anyone ever talked about the revolutionary festival event that celebrated black culture. The footage hasn’t been seen until now. It features legends such as Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, B.B. King and many more icons of soul music. I found this to be a compelling and lively documentary. It combines some incredible visuals and sounds. It’s rich in culture, style and history. SUMMER OF SOUL is out now on Hulu and on Digital and DVD on February 8 Find out how it all began for the coolest of spy agencies. The prequel to the Kingsman franchise is as satisfactory as the previous films. Humanity needs to be saved, as the action/story takes place during WWI. The architect of the franchise, Matthew Vaughn is back to direct. The cast is tremendous, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode and Rhys Ifans star, among others. It’s action-packed, fun and entertaining as you’d expect a Kingsman film to be, I like the origins concept in this one. THE KING’S MAN is out on Digital, 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on February 22
