In Hollywood, February revolves around one event: the Academy Awards on February 9. But for us regular folks, February is about hunkering down during the depths of winter. Thankfully we’ve got some fantastic Oscar nominees and other strong movies from every genre coming to the Box and On Demand next month.

Here are 3 I recommend in particular:

Knives OutUp for an Original Screenplay Oscar, this star-studded whodunit from writer/director Rian Johnson was hailed by both critics and audiences alike for its unexpected twists and turns, its performances, and — most of all — Chris Evans’ honeycomb-stitch sweater that went viral.

Frozen II The more I watch this Oscar-nominated animated insta-classic, and the more I listen to its soundtrack, the more I become convinced that it’s actually superior to its beloved predecessor. The continuing adventures of Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) deliver a strong message of empowerment that I found uplifting and inspiring.

Ford v FerrariThis Best Picture nominee is one of those “stranger than fiction” true stories that I enjoyed the heck out of precisely because I knew so little about it — or the world of racing — going in. So I had no idea what was going to happen when famed automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and hot-headed British race car driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) team up to help Ford Motor Company actually be able to compete against the likes of the high-end Italian racing giant Ferrari.
