Rom-Coms to Watch in February

February is a very romantic month – including your local movie theater. We recommend you check the next movies.

American Ultra

An atypical player has suddenly appeared in the world of spy blockbusters – a comedy thriller directed by the author of the unbridled and shameless “Project X” Nima Nurizadeh and invented by the young genius Max Landis. Instead of expensively dressed super-agents who take themselves with bestial seriousness, in “Ultra-Americans” the case is handled by Mike from a provincial town in West Virginia. He was once programmed to be a killing machine, but he doesn’t know it (or blows too much to remember). However, a couple of the necessary words is enough to awaken the hero’s killer skills: for example, he, without removing the jamb from his mouth, is able to lay two enemies at once with a dessert spoon. Where you ask, is love in this humorous plot? The answer is everywhere. The desire to survive and win for Mike is not a goal, but a means because the main business of his life is to save his girlfriend and put a ring on her finger. Brilliantly promoted by a series of viral videos, “Ultra-Americans” rests on the charisma of Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, or more precisely, on the chemistry of their on-screen duo.

Before We Go

“Captain America” ​​Chris Evans seems to be haunted by the laurels of Richard Linklater and his cult melodrama “Before Dawn.” Deciding to make his directing debut, Evans filmed himself and Briton Alice Eve in a love story slightly more than completely copied from the cult American. He and she meet by chance in Manhattan; she is in trouble, he is ready to help, he understands that this is love at first sight, she is stubborn at first. One night together, as they say in the trailer, “changes everything” (however, the trailer also contains the phrase: “I love your polished pipe”). The spectacle is equally cute and awkward, so it’s no surprise that after a couple of indie film festivals, the film was sent straight to the video on-demand category. Which, however, does not cease to make it a perfectly acceptable sight for the most sentimental.

Sex Ed

A comedy about a bum and a loser who decided to raise the level of sex education in the framework of a school elective, in theory, promises a parade of grassroots gags, from which you want to fall through the chair in the cinema. Especially if you chose “Sex Education” as the so-called date movie. In fact, it’s not so scary. Yes, there are inevitable jokes about human anatomy, and if a banana appears on the screen, then it is certainly not just a banana. At the same time, it should be borne in mind that this is still an indie comedy, in which there is a place for both sentimentality and just common sense. It’s nice that in Russia, where it seems that sex education is about to be banned, it will be possible to learn at least something on this part thanks to going to the cinema. And, which is also important, the main role here is played by the grown-up “that” boy from “The Sixth Sense” Hayley Joel Osment, and one of the female roles are the young actress Lorenza Izzo.

Crimson Peak

“Crimson Peak” is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of the year 2015: it is not for nothing that in the comments to the material about the most spectacular new films, we were asked where he is. Here. Of course, first of all, this is visual euphoria (it is not for nothing that Guillermo del Toro is officially presented in the trailer as a visionary director), but this is also a film that rhymes with blood and love impeccably. A spectacular Victorian horror awaits us: a young writer Edith (Mia Wasikowska) falls in love with a stately aristocrat (Tom Hiddleston), in addition to which an ominous house and an equally ominous sister (Jessica Chastain) are attached.
