The February order contains lots of blockbusters and well-known TV series, including, of course, Clint Eastwood’s telling of the story of Chris Kyle, American Sniper.  Also headlining this order is the also-Oscar-nominated Inherent Vice, starring a personal favorite actor, Joaquin Phoenix and the movie that would probably be more accurate if Michael Bay had written the Bible, Exodus: Gods and Kings.

      • American Sniper
      • Big Eyes

    • Blackhat
    • The Boy Next Door
    • The Captive
    • Everly
    • Exodus: Gods and Kings

  • The Immigrant
  • Inherent Vice
  • Mortdecai
  • Mr. Selfridge (Season 3)
  • Silicon Valley (Season 1)
  • Taken 3
  • Veep (Season 3)

If you see some empty shelves in the DVD section, or if I’m out there pulling titles off the shelf like crazy, don’t worry, those areas will soon be filled with new TV and movies, as well as some other things that we’re thinking about that we’ll talk about later.  Oh, and Midsomer Murders will return!  We’re just trying to combine episodes where we can.
