A brand new original series produced by Netflix starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and comes to you from acclaimed director David Fincher. Its a drama about a ruthless Congressman who will do whatever it takes to get further up the ladder. Its loosely based off the British series of the same name. The trailer makes this political drama look very enticing, if you are into this sort of thing. But with the talented people behind this show, I have no doubt it will be great. All 13 episodes will be released simultaneously.
Entire Season releases February 1
Dead Space 3 (Game) - See
The Dead Space series is probably the best modern survival horror video game franchise today. In this newest one you’ll be encountering new environments, evolved Necromorphs, epic boss fights, and replacing your underwear more than you ever have. I can’t say enough good things about this series. If you like horror and sci-fi (who doesn’t) then you will love Dead Space 3.

Safe Haven (Movie) - Flee (as fast you possibly can)
I don’t really think I need to go into detail here. Its a movie based off of a Nicolas Sparks book. Enough said.
Releases February 8
Identity Thief (Movie) - Flee
I am a huge Jason Bateman fan (considering Arrested Development is my favorite show ever) and I don’t really have much against Melissa McCarthy. But this movie looks pretty awful. An uninteresting plot mixed in with some run-of-the-mill slapstick will result in a few giggles few and far between. I think Jason Bateman is great, but man has he been in some bad films lately.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Game) - Flee
I’ll start this by saying I’m not a huge fan of the Metal Gear series and this game has had trouble since its inception. After officially being announced in 2009, Kojima Productions cancelled it after having issues with the swordplay mechanics. Just about two years later Platinum Games took over development and finished production. What it became is a spin-off of the actual Metal Gear series, taking place after the events of Metal Gear 4: Guns of the Patriots. You play as Raiden (who you might recognize from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty), a cyborg ninja who is sent to stop a terrorist organization....Really? Beyond that brilliant plot the game basically plays as a hack n’ slash, where you defeat enemy cyborgs in order to steal their life-force and absorb it in order to continue living. From what I’ve seen they're trying way too hard to force this cyborg idea into the game and the game overall just feels rushed. But with the gameplay style, Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden fans will feel very at home with this title.
