Finding Dory, Sausage Party, The People v. OJ Simpson, Netflix Original Santa Clarita Diet, and more.
By Matt Fowler
Coming this February on Netflix are movies like Sausage Party, Finding Dory, Babe, David Brent: Life on the Road, Magic Mike, Twilight, Milk, and more.
Plus, as always, there are plenty of Netflix Originals to choose from, with Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant’s Santa Clarita Diet at the top of the buzz bin. In it, they play a married couple who find new excitement in their life with the help of – um – an unusual dietary regimen (pssst, it’s people!).
Also on tap are TV shows like Girl Meets World, The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, Frequency, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Check it out!
- Babe (1995) / Babe: Pig in the City (1998)
From the director of Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller, comes 1995’s Oscar-nominated wee little piggy movie and its surprisingly buoyant sequel (only Pig in the City was directed by Miller, though both were written and produced by him). Join the adorable and touching barnyard antics of Babe the pig, Ferdinand the duck, and the rest of the squad and they get into adventures both on and off the farm.

Surprisingly shut out of this year’s Animated Feature Film nominations at the Oscars — which is uncommon for Pixar — Finding Dory was still a monster hit with both audiences in critics, despite the long delay making it to the screen. The film ultimately pulled in strong reviews and over a billion dollars at the box office. This time around, it was the perpetually forgetful Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, who was out to find her family, with Albert Brooks’ Marlin and Nemo in tow.

- The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Absolute “ground zero” for the shaky cam/found footage horror genre, The Blair Witch Project not only reinvented the format of horror movie storytelling, but it all-but-revolutionized just how cheap you could make an effectively terrifying movie – almost guaranteeing a profit in return. This film’s faux-documentary blueprint continues to empower filmmakers to blur reality and fiction today.

- American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (2016)
The star-studded first season of FX’s anthology series American Crime Story was a hit with both viewers and critics, taking us back to the media phenomenon that was the 1995 O .J. Simpson trial and giving us all an inside-look at what would become one of the most sensationalized courtroom cases in our country’s history.
