February is nearly upon us and that means Netflix has dozens of new and returning titles to the streaming service including the Police Academy franchise, "Back to the Future III," "Sex and the City 2," the third series of Jon Favreau's "Chef Show," "Captain Underpants Epic Choice-o-Rama" and "Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution." Here are another five titles that caught my eye.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Outside of the original Star Wars trilogy and "E.T.," I'd be hard pressed to name a film that has a greater impact on me than "Blade Runner." Ridley Scott's loose adaptation of Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" is classic noir mystery dressed up in the most fantastic futuristic visuals that cinema has every seen courtesy of Syd Mead. The cast includes Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos and Daryl Hannah. There have been a handful of different versions of the film, this "Final Cut" is the definitive. (Avail. 2/1/20)

Good Time

Before Benny and Josh Safdie made waves with 2019's "Uncut Gems," the directorial duo made a fantastic thriller starring Robert Pattinson as Connie Nikas, a low level criminal who sees his brother jailed after a robbery goes incredibly wrong. A series of bad decisions build as the film moves along. (Avail. 2/11/20)

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

Things only get more complicated for Lara Jean (Lana Condor) as the follow up to "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" sees Lara Jean navigating real relationships and too many options. (Avail. 2/12/20)

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

I love the Aardman Animations studio's work on "Wallance & Gromit," "Creature Comforts," "Chicken Run" and the "Shaun the Sheep" franchise. "Farmageddon" sees an alien crash landing near Mossy Bottom Farm. Expect slapstick and British humor in spades. (Avail. 2/14/20)

The Last Thing He Wanted

The adaptation of Joan Didion's novel "The Last Thing He Wanted" will debut at the Sundance Film Festival before making its streaming debut at the end of the month. Ther story casts Anne Hathaway as a former journalist who finds herself taking over her father's role as an arms dealer in Central America. Co-stars Ben Affleck, Willem Dafoe and Rosie Perez.
