Love is in the air in February and Netflix Singapore has you covered with romance movies, including the final instalment of the popular To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise.

If romance is not your cup of tea, they also have some thrillers in their lineup. Here are some highlights to look forward to on the streaming service.

If your former self appeared before you, how would you react? In this Netflix original, a woman thinks she’s lost all her spark until her younger self literally appears in front of her with a demand: For her future self to change her ways.

The series sounds like a good reminder to always love yourself, and that it is never too late to change.

2. To All The Boys: Always And Forever

Briefly touched on in an earlier article, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before follows teenager Lara Jean’s love letters being exposed and the consequences that follow, and this third installment of the movie franchise could not have come sooner.

In this movie, Lara Jean grapples with which university she is going to go to and how to continue her romance with her boyfriend, Peter Kavinsky if they go to different schools.

Based on the 2017 book Always and Forever, Lara Jean, it will be interesting to see the changes Netflix makes for the final movie adaptation of this beloved trilogy.

3. Little Big Women

This film sheds light on betrayal and how people ultimately move on from it, as a family learns that their recently deceased grandfather was having an affair. The grandmother naturally is heartbroken but overcomes the pain as she learns to accept the other woman.

It takes courage for anyone to move past betrayal even more so for a grandmother, but it goes to show that forgiveness is really a choice anyone can make. The movie will be released Feb 5.

4. Red Dot

Love and relationships need constant work. In this case, it also requires trying to avoid being hunted by someone while this couple tries to bring a spark back into their romance.

The married couple in Red Dot decide to go on a hiking trip to rekindle their marriage in the snowy hills of Sweden (the movie is in Swedish). Things start to go wrong when a red dot representing the laser aim of a rifle is pointed at them without any reason.

As the shooting begins, the couple run into the wild and are now stuck between a rock and hard place as they avoid the shots from the mysterious red dot in the unforgiving wilderness.

You might rethink camping trips for romantic retreats after you watch this movie.

5. I Care a Lot

With the protagonist from the 2014 thriller Gone Girl taking a lead role in this movie, you know things are going to get interesting.

Marla Grayson (Pike) is a crooked legal guardian who drains the savings of her elderly wards, but gets more than she bargained for when her latest victim turns out to have ties to a powerful gangster.

This movie is a reminder that although love is blind, be careful who you trust because they may just take advantage of you. The movie will be released Feb 19.

With everything from teenage romance to finding forgiveness, love really shines through on Netflix this February. The full listing for Netflix movies and series coming in February is available here.
