6 Flicks Picks for February 2019 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, February 1, 2019
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in February 2019?

Which films make the cut?

6. The Prodigy — Nope, but given the options...

5. Cold Pursuit — Again, nope, but at least there might be a joke or two in the movie that I laugh at.

4. Fighting with My Family — Uuuuugggh I have to see this crap in order to have the proper context to cover it for Smark Out Moment. Damn it. I didn't even really love Paige as a performer, let alone think this movie looks decent.

3. Alita: Battle Angel — I'm not familiar with the source material and I don't think I'd like this all that much beyond just "meh" but it's more up my alley than most films this month.

2. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World — The previous two movies were good. Might as well round out the trilogy.

1. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part — Batman was better than the first movie, but yeah, this is the only one I know for sure I'll see in theaters.
