Happy Valentine’s Day readers! The day of love is coming up and for this week’s Filtered Forecast, a couple big movies are coming on DVD that could be a great present for him and her. We’ve also got another awards show and big sequel hitting theaters for the holiday. Here’s what not to miss this week.

I know, I know, we put it on here almost every week. But it’s just so good! This week sees Patrick Wilson enter Hannah’s life as a potential new love interest (as if she needs any more of those). The last time Wilson dated someone so much younger than him on screen it didn’t end to well for him (see Hard Candy which features Ellen Page well before Juno). Girls probably won’t go that route but after Boothe Jonathan shoving Marnie in a TV torture chamber you never know. (Sunday at 9 pm on HBO)

Need a last minute Valentine’s gift for her? Look no further than the best high school romance this side of John Hughes. Based on the beloved novel, Perks gives Emma Watson her first major post-Potter role, and she kills it. It also gave us Ezra Miller one of 2012’s biggest breakout stars. It’s a movie everyone who endured high school will enjoy and a worthy addition to your and her’s collection. (In stores Tuesday)

The Grammys always feature a ton of great performances and odd moments (maybe Lady Gaga will arrive in port-o-John this year). This year’s performers include Rihanna, Fun., Taylor Swift, and of course, Adele. It should be a night to remember as always. (Sunday at 8 pm on CBS)

Speaking of Adele, now you can own one of the best Bond films ever in your collection. The Oscar nominated film features one of the best turns by any actor as James Bond, courtesy of Daniel Craig, an instant classic movie villain, courtesy of Javier Bardem, and one of the best songs of 2012, courtesy of Adele. The Blu-ray is sure to look gorgeous. Get your home theater system ready for the outrageous opening sequence and the epic, tragic climax. A perfect gift for him for Valentine’s Day.

Single? Spend your Valentine’s Day watching John McClane and his son kick some butt in the fifth installment of the long running franchise. Bruce Willis is back for the sequel that promises more of the same, in a good way. Everyone’s world is a little bit brighter when “the 007 of Plainfield, New Jersey” is around. (In theaters Thursday)




What are you most excited for this week? What entertainment will keep you and your loved ones busy this Valentine’s Day?
