New on Netflix today! The complete February 2016 lineup

As usual, Netflix unleashes their monthly pile of new additions at the first of the month. On February 1st, their way of getting into the Valentine's Day spirit apparently involves unloading a pile of crowd-pleasing blockbusters from the late 1990s and early 2000s. Included in those are Charlie's Angels (2000), Scooby-Doo (2002), Collateral Damage (2002), Cruel Intentions (1999), and Armageddon (1998). All they need now is some classic TRL episodes and Say What Karaoke and they should have my early tween years about covered.

A few more notable additions to the library this month include Robert Rodriguez's Sin City (2005), Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987), 2007's big award favorite, Atonement, and the sadly overlooked, Dope, from 2015.

As far as TV goes, we get the final half of the final season of Mad Men on February 5th, the complete first season of Better Call Saul on February 1st, A&E's The Returned, and a new Netflix Original series from Judd Apatow, entitled Love. There's other stuff too. But it's mostly awful.


For a complete list of new movies and TV shows added to Netflix in February 2016, keep reading.
