What's New to Stream on Netflix for February 2020, and What's Leaving

Wondering where you can watch all seven 'Police Academy' films? Netflix has you covered.

Netflix February

Some people spend their days arguing over the merits of Netflix, but the rest of us are too busy enjoying new movies, engaging series, and fun specials. It’s just one more way to re-watch the movies we already love and find new ones to cherish, and this month sees some of both hitting the service.

The complete list of movies and shows hitting (and leaving) Netflix this month — February 2020 — is below, but first I’m going to highlight a few that stand apart from the bunch.


Netflix Pick of the Month

I Am Not Okay With This

Shows geared towards young adults don’t always translate well to older audiences, but if you’ve ever been a teenager you’ll find plenty to enjoy in the new Netflix Original series, I Am Not Okay With This, which arrives on February 26th. It’s smart, funny, and affecting across the board, and it’s headlined by the two best young actors from the recent It (2017, 2019) films. Sophia Lillis takes the lead as a teenager dealing with all of life’s troubles — in addition to the discovery that she might just have telepathic powers — while Wyatt Oleff plays the only kid in town who understands her. They’re both absolutely fantastic here showing wit, chemistry, and real acting chops. This first season isn’t at all what you’re expecting. It’s better.


The Horror of It All

Girl On The Third Floor

Joe Hill’s Locke & Key arrives February 7th after more than a few aborted attempts at adaptation, and while this Netflix Original variation might skew a bit more playful than the source material fans should still be pleased. Polaroid (2019) develops on the 9th after spending some time unreleased on the studio shelf. No one whose seen it claims it’s a lost masterpiece, but hopefully there’s some fun spookiness to enjoy. Finally, Girl on the Third Floor (2019) says hello on February 22nd with an icky, creepy, hard-hitting ghost story about bad deeds and the bad men who keep committing them. It’ll leave you sticky, but it’s worth the mess.


The Oldest New Arrival

The Dirty Dozen

Robert Aldrich’s classic tale of war and bad men turned “heroes” is this month’s least new arrival to Netflix, but even sixty years later The Dirty Dozen (1967) still packs a punch. Action and character collide with a stellar cast of tough guys including Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown, Richard Jaeckel, Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland, Clint Walker, George Kennedy, and more.


A Classic Comedy Marathon!

Police Academy

Okay, that’s perhaps a bit disingenuous of a description as the marathon I’m referring to it the Police Academy (1984-1994) franchise. All seven films are dropping onto Netflix, and while most comedy fans have seen the first one or two — maybe even three or four — few can claim to have seen all seven. Well it’s our lucky month as now all of us can correct that mistake. The comedy is broad, often dumb, and culminates in the squad helping the Russians, so yeah, maybe the movies have aged well?
