Sooo…. you may have noticed we skipped January for movie releases which I normally would have prepped in December. It wasn’t that there weren’t any because there were. The Beekeeper, Mean Girls and a handful of others were on the watch list. But honestly, we were busy with our holiday gift guides and a LOT of giveaways pretty much non-stop until mid-December. Then we traveled to spend time with family for a couple weeks over the holidays. By the time I sat down to work on it when we returned in January, I kind of shrugged and went, “Meh. Let’s start with February in 2024.”
And here we are… on schedule-ish as planned-ish. Hopefully you had a great holiday, started 2024 on the right foot and are ready to enjoy board games, travel, family dinners and some good movies. Here’s what’s releasing in February!

The Monk and The Gun
The Monk And The Gun captures the wonder and disruption as Bhutan becomes one of the world’s youngest democracies. Known throughout the world for its extraordinary beauty and its emphasis on Gross National Happiness, the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan was the last nation to connect to the internet and television. And if that weren’t enough change, the King announced shortly afterwards that he would cede his power to the people via their vote and a new form of government: Democracy.
An elderly lama (Kelsang Choejey), recognizing that extraordinary change is about to sweep through his country, is troubled by the possible outcomes. He instructs his young disciple Tashi (Tandin Wangchuk) to set forth into the kingdom and bring him two guns before the full moon to “set it right.” The young monk is perplexed by his guru’s request, and his familiarity with guns is based solely on images from the only film available on television: James Bond. His quest brings him into contact with a scheming American gun collector Ron (Harry Einhorn), leading to a most unexpected outcome.
Bob Marley: One Love
If these sound like your kind(s) of films then mark the calendar and go enjoy yourself! Great new movies will drop each week so there are plenty of reasons to go to the theater the entire month.
Do you have months where you’re less likely to go to the movies?
