As the New Year celebrations start to fade into the distant memory, February fast approaches, and we are swiftly reminded of just how quickly time flies. Even with all our advancements in technology, we still haven’t come close to the success of Doc Brown and his time-travelling Delorean, so unfortunately there is nothing that we can do.
On the upside, in a year that already promises a host of fantastic films, the month of February not only provides a day for loved ones to re-affirm their love for one another, or singletons to find romance. The new month also represents a whole new range of films to feast your eyes upon. So whether you’re looking for that special film to take a loved one to or a film to help mend a broken heart, let’s take a look at the 10 must-see films of February 2013 (in the UK).
Flight stars Denzel Washington (Training Day); I shouldn’t really have to say much more, because even a bad film featuring Washington is still usually a worthwhile watch. The good news is that Flight is a superb film, with an Oscar nominated performance by Washington as an airline pilot who manages to avert a major disaster in the sky. After taking time out to direct motion capture /animated films such as The Polar Express, A Christmas Carol and Beowulf, it’s a welcomed return to live-action films by director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future). Washington is joined by an exuberant and very funny performance from John Goodman (The Artist) and British actress Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes). With Flight already having secured multiple Oscar nominations, this will certainly be a must watch this February.
