As the new year continues to zoom by at an impressively rapid pace, we now somehow suddenly find ourselves in the week before Valentine's Day. Whether you've got a current boo or not, for the time being the responsible thing to do during COVID is to make plans that center on staying home and watching movies, TV shows, and original content on Netflix. And if not much is really grabbing you, you can also spend this week looking planning ahead by checking out the full list of 70 new movies Netflix will be rolling out throughout 2021.

We won't sugarcoat it for you--for the week of February 7 through to February 13, there's not a ton of new stuff rolling out. With just a scant 16 new entries coming to Netflix's formidable catalog, the pro move to make would be embracing the fact you can only watch so many things in a given week, anyway.

If you're looking for something that'll help put a different spin on Valentine's Day coming up, the Swedish psychological thriller Red Dot is a strong contender on February 11. The film is about a young couple with a child on the way looking to rekindle their marriage with a trip up to the mountains--only to suddenly find themselves "stalked by remorseless killers." Hint: The red dot doesn't refer to a hazardous sale, but a sniper rifle's projected dot on a mountain caked in snow.

Buried by the Bernards, debuting on February 12, explores similarly disturbing subject matter but with a markedly different tone. This reality show about a Memphis family funeral home showcases the frictions and hardships inherent in the industry--but through the lens of the offbeat R. Bernard Funeral Services family, which years ago had a modestly viral commercial where an uncle pops out of a casket, screaming about prices. With where everyone one is in quarantine viewing, it's always worth giving a new series a try--and this one certainly looks different.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Netflix this week, and if you're interested in more streaming news, check out the biggest shows that are just over the horizon in 2021.
