Each Thursday, the Avenue will dish out the best in entertainment. From the silver screen to hidden Internet gems, check out this week’s top picks.

Watch It: “House of Cards”

Most of you might not need a reminder, but season two of the TV drama will be released in its entirety on Netflix this Valentine’s Day. Binge watching the show with a heart-shaped box of chocolates is one way to spend the holiday...

Click It: Bianca Giaever

We can’t get enough of Giaever’s short, creative films. This Valentine’s Day, watch “Crush” on her Vimeo page. The six-minute flick tells the story of how Rick and Shira meet and fall in love after meeting in college in 1972. Retold in the couple’s own words, “Crush” will make you and your friends let out a collective “awwww.”

See It: “The Monuments Men”

Set in World War II, the Monuments Men are a group of unlikely heroes tasked with rescuing art masterpieces from Nazi thieves. Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett, this all-star cast shouldn’t disappoint. We’ll see anything with George Clooney — let’s be real.

Hear It: Jonathan Batiste

With the jazz musician coming to the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 20, we recommend brushing up on your easy listening. If you need help setting the mood on Valentine’s Day, turn up Jonathan Batiste’s blend of jazz, hip-hop, blues and soul for a refreshing sound.
