November. Such a beautiful month. Fall is in the air, the leaves are a beautiful orange color, and there’s a 50% sale on boots at DSW. Nothing is better than November. Pumpkin spiced lattes are back at Starbucks, and literally you are unstoppable. Early holiday shopping is already underway and you are ready to attack the mall on black Friday and destroy any fool who gets in your way. It’s a family filled mess of wonderful until New Years, and this is just the beginning. Now when you’re tired from shopping, working, and being absolutely amazing you deserve to sit back, relax, and put on a nice Movie on Demand. It’s November. You deserve it!
 
Top On Demand Films For Us, The Babes:
 
 
BRAVE - Premieres November 13
Pixar does it again with this girl power film that will have you planning world domination while blasting the inspirational sounds of Pat Benatar. Our protagonist is Princess Merida; a saucy red head that should really get an Herbal Essences endorsement. As custom states she is to be married off in a ritual called the Highland Games. Determined to change her fate Merida uses her archery skills to win her own hand causing chaos amongst the Scottish clans. Add in a little sorcery, and Merida’s bravery must be tested to undo a beastly curse. Brave is absolutely inspirational and the perfect film for any woman who knows what it’s like to be in charge of her own fate.
PG, Animation / Same day as DVD

STEP UP REVOLUTION - Premieres November 27
How many STEP UP’S have there been? Twenty? I lost count after the first one, but I’m pretty sure they’ve made about twenty. Regardless I’ve seen all of them. Mainly because “So You Think You Can Dance” told me to. Who doesn’t love shirtless men perfectly executing a pas de deux? Everyone I have ever met can dance, think they can dance, or really wish they could dance. I personally appreciate the fact that Hollywood thinks dancers hang out together in dance gangs and flash mob in response to political unrest. That’s how life should be.
PG-13, Drama / Same day as DVD

THE WATCH - Premieres November 13
I had to add a comedy in here because morally I couldn’t leave you with Step Up Revolution. The Watch follows four men who form a neighborhood watch in order to escape their suburban everyday lives. Being a comedy the gang haphazardly discover that their town has been overrun with aliens posing as regular citizens. It’s like The Stepford Wives but not creepy! Its all-star cast includes Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill. With that combo it would be pretty impossible for it not to be hilarious. Just don’t take it to seriously. How could you really? It’s Ben Stiller saving the world from extraterrestrial suburbanites.
R, Comedy / Same day as DVD / 28 days before Netflix

A Film For The Guys That The Babes Will Like:

THE CAMPAIGN - Premieres October 30
First off I don’t think there’s anyone on this planet that can say that the combination of Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell is not funny. It’s actually impossible. That being said this film stars Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell. Do you get where I’m going with this? It’s funny! In a truly unapologetic, crass, and morally offensive way. Your guys will love this because deep down at the center of their manly core they enjoy lewd, awful, and downright despicable comedy. And you know what? Babes do to. That’s why you need to throw them through a loop by suggesting watching this film for date night. Hand them a beer when you suggest it too. You’ll be their God.
R, Comedy / Same day as DVD, Weeks before Netflix

Babes And Guys:

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN - Premieres November 9
I know what you’re thinking. Another SPIDER-MAN franchise? So soon? But what about Tobey? I loved the last SPIDER-MAN franchise (SPIDER-MAN 3 is exempt from this love), and I have an unnatural loyalty to the beautiful Tobey Maguire, but this reboot is completely different, absolutely superb, and worth your time. Andrew Garfield plays a younger, neurotic, and darker Peter Parker that is struggling with adolescence just like your average teenager. Unlike your average teenager he has the added bonus of being a superhero. Fun times for an orphan with girl issues! Emma Stone is the perfect Gwen Stacey who rocks a ponytail and knee high boots like no one I’ve ever seen. Garfield and Stone’s chemistry make this film, and they add a sweet romance to an otherwise thrilling action adventure. Needless to say this film is perfect for both babes and guys.
PG-13, Action / Same day as DVD

Kate
By Kate Asche Wilson

Happy January men! Since you’ve probably been nursing your New Years hangovers for the past week I’m sure you’ve had plenty of time to think about those pesky resolutions you can’t possibly keep. How about for 2013 you pick a resolution you actually can keep? Like watching more Movies On Demand! Seriously next time your significant other asks what your big plan is for 2013 say watching more TV. No one will argue with your ability to do that, and now you’ve avoided having to take that couple’s pottery class. Win-Win.


Top On Demand Films For Guys:
 
DREDD- Premiers January 8
This film is just ridiculously awesome. RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME. Set in an exceedingly violent futuristic America where criminals run the streets the only form of law enforcement is the Judges who possess the powers of judge, jury, and instant executioner. This dystopic world is based off of the vibrant comic and follows the most ruthless Judge, Dredd, as he tries to take down a vicious drug lord and her clan. Like I said ridiculously awesome.
R, Action, Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, same day as DVD, available in 3D

TAKEN 2- Premiers January 15
It’s Liam Neeson. Liam Neeson is one of the most badass men in film. He trained Batman for god’s sake. Why on earth would you kidnap Liam Neeson’s daughter and then enact revenge on him? He kicked your ass the first time of course he’s going to do it again. He’s a straight up BAMF. Silly Albanian kidnappers.
PG-13, Action, Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Same day as DVD, weeks before Netflix & Redbox


SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS- Premiers January 29
SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS follows struggling Screenwriter Colin Farrell who inadvertently gets involved in a Los Angeles criminal underworld because Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell kidnap gangster Woody Harrelson’s beloved Shih Tzu. It really just sells itself.
R, Comedy, Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Same day as DVD


A Film For The Babes That The Guys Will Like:
 
HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET- Premiers January 8
It’s a horror film with Jennifer Lawrence. If I have to explain why this is a good thing for you I will be very disappointed.

PG-13, Thriller, Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, Same day as DVD, weeks before Netflix

Guys and Babes:

FRANKENWEENIE- Premiers January 8
Tim Burton is filled with wacky weird whimsy and the worlds he can create are just like him. FRANKENWEENIE is no exception, and pays a beautiful homage to the classic black and white horror films with its story. Following a tragic accident where our hero Victor’s pet dog Sparky is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life. Because of the mayhem and destruction the “new” Sparky has caused, Victor must now convince his town that despite his appearance Sparky is the same loyal dog they knew before. This animated film is smart and entertaining, and will be extremely enjoyable for both babes and guys.
PG, Family, voices: Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Charlie Tahan, Same day as DVD, available in 3D

Happy New Year ladies! Hopefully your holiday was filled with glitter and joy and not agonizing depression and box wine. It’s a new year! Anything can happen! You might win the lottery and a steamy trip to Barbados. You might discover the most mouth watering delicious cupcake you’ve ever eaten, and it’s only five calories. You might run away with Sven the gorgeous Ski instructor from Sweden. And if none of that happens, well, you’ll always have Movies on Demand. Trust me Sven might seem good on paper but his accent is impossible to understand, and he has a raging case of Herpes.
 
Top On Demand Films For The Babes:
 
HIT AND RUN- Premiers January 8
With the dream team of real life couple Dax Shepard and Kristin Bell how could this awkward comedy not be good? The film is written and directed by Shepard who also stars as the protagonist Charlie Bronson, a former getaway driver that is now in the witness protection program. Bell plays his girlfriend who has the opportunity to live her dream in Los Angeles but needs Shepard to drive her there. Putting himself in jeopardy Bronson embarks on this ill-advised road trip, but finds himself in all sorts of hilarious situations including a slew of chase scenes fueled by a wayward Bradley Cooper. Honestly I wish I was watching this right now.
R, Comedy, Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Same day as DVD, weeks before Netflix & Redbox
 
HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET- Premiers January 8
I realize that most films that are catered towards women are terrible rom coms that have loose plots and star Jake Gyllenhaal. I mean don’t get me wrong I would watch basically anything that had Jake Gyllenhaal in it, but sometimes I just want something a little different. Like a terrifying mother daughter horror film that just screams we will never sleep comfortably again. Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue this film centers on Elissa and Sarah who thought they found the perfect house at the end of the street, but discover it has more secrets than their realtor let on. Hey it had a nook! How were they supposed to know it was infested with a murderous spirit?
PG-13, Thriller, Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue, Same day as DVD, weeks before Netflix


TO ROME WITH LOVE- Premiers January 15
I love everything Woody Allen does so be prepared that if a Woody Allen movie comes out it will be on this list. And for good reason too because the man is brilliant. With an ensemble cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, and Woody Allen himself, TO ROME WITH LOVE brings us to the beautiful city of Rome where four separate vignette stories are told. It’s a Woody Allen film so you have to prepare for some magical realism and a lot of neurosis, but trust me it’s definitely worth it.
R, Comedy, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Same day as DVD


A Film For The Guys That The Babes Will Like:

SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS- Premiers January 29
I’m certain this is one of the most underrated films of this year and insist that you watch it. Watch it with your guy, watch it with your friends, watch it with yourself. Just watch it because if you like absurd and incredible comedy you cannot miss out on this. I’m not even going to tell you the plot because I don’t want you to make any false assumptions. Just go watch it. Now. I will tell you though that Christopher Walken is in it. And we all know that everyone loves Christopher Walken.
PG, Family, voices: Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Charlie Tahan, Same day as DVD, available in 3D

February Movies On Demand - Awards Season!

 

Kate
By Kate Asche Wilson

It’s February and you know what that means? It’s awards season! Thank god because frankly I was worried that Hollywood wasn’t getting the proper self-boosting accolades it deserves. Awards season is the absolute best and you know why? Because it’s so entertaining. Nothing’s better then watching your favorite celebrity get shit faced on national TV. Not to mention the terrible Dior dresses and the really awkward acceptance speeches that you have to mute because they’re uncomfortable. There’s actors, actors, more actors. It’s like a giant theatre party orgy but with better hair. I’m still hoping that someone gets backhanded with a Golden Globe.

Awards season is the greatest, and that’s why I’m here to help guide you on your path. Favorite best actor nominee? Easy Daniel Day-Lewis. Supporting Actress? Anne Hathaway. Obviously. I’ve picked out my top three Movies On Demand in February for awards season just for you. All are nominated in some way shape and form so watching them will be both educational and entertaining. I’ll also try to keep my personal bias out of the way so you can keep an open mind about these films. Actually I won’t. Two words: Leonardo Dicaprio.

I love awards season and hope that there are many more Lena Dunham jokes facilitated by Tina Fey in our future.


 
 
3. FLIGHT- Premiers February 5
FLIGHT is centered on William “Whip” Whitaker, an airline pilot who saves a flight from crashing. He’s initially praised as a hero, but a further investigation shows that there is more to the story then just the plane malfunctioning. Playing a man plagued by his love of Vodka and Latina women Denzel Washington leads the cast as Whip, and finds himself nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal. FLIGHT is also nominated for Best Original Screenplay, and is a must see film for anyone interested in checking out Daniel Day-Lewis’ competition.
R, Drama, Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Same day as DVD


2. SKYFALL- Premiers February 12
Bond films are always fan favorites, but never seem to do much at awards time. This I feel is a conspiracy by the American Government in order to keep the general public from thinking the Brits are cooler than us. It’s fine we know they are. That being said the updated Bond films are truly spectacular and have the countless visual effects nominations to prove it. Not to mention the gorgeous Adele herself is nominated for Best Original Song. Go England!
PG-13, Action, Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Same day as DVD

1. ARGO- Premiers February 19
Words cannot describe how much I love ARGO. I am not even going to tell you the plot because if you haven’t seen ARGO yet stop whatever you are doing and go watch it now. Seriously I am not kidding. Do yourself a favor and watch this masterpiece of filmmaking immediately, and then you will see what I mean. It’s incredible. It’s directed by the beautiful BAffleck who also stars in it. Proving that DAREDEVIL was just a small bump in his career. It also has an incredible ensemble cast that includes Alan Arkin and John Goodman. I’m already mad enough at The Academy for snubbing BAffleck for the Best Director category so in order to make it up to me they better give ARGO Best Picture. No negotiations because if this doesn’t win I will hurt them. Not really. But really.
R, Drama, Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Same day as DVD, Weeks before Netflix & Redbox

Now aren’t we excited for Awards Season? Pop open the champagne, watch some Movies on Demand to get prepared, and relax. It’s the best month of the year.

March Movies On Demand - Awards Season!

 

Kate
By Kate Asche Wilson

It’s March team! You know what that means? Nothing! Because March is the absolute worst month of the year. Seriously does anything even happen in March? I had to Google Saint Patrick’s Day to make sure it is in fact in March. It is! So there’s that. Also, hilariously enough, I uncovered some extra special knowledge on the fun holidays in March that are pretty much unknown to most everyone. There’s Employee Appreciation Day, National Pig Day, Worship of Tools Day, and my personal favorite Multiple Personality Day. You and Sybil can finally have that quality time you’ve been craving!

And what better way to celebrate all of these delectable holidays that watching some Movies on Demand. Nothing says Extraterrestrial Abduction Day quite like a nice Movie on Demand.

Happy celebrating!

 
 
 
THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY- Premiers March 19
Hobbits, and wizards, and dwarves, and everything that’s good in the world! All wrapped up in a delicious Tolkien package. It stars every awesome British actor that has ever graced the silver screen, and is a truly epic fantasy that completely lives up to its name. This film should be watched immediately and then over analyzed on extremely zealous Internet fan sites.
PG-13, Adventure, Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Same Day as DVD, Weeks Before Netflix & Redbox, Available in 3D

LES MISERABLES- Premiers March 22
Perfect if your story topic of choice is revolution and prostitution! This film also features the gorgeous Anne Hathaway in her heartbreaking Oscar winning performance as the tragic Fantine. An extra bonus is the added treat of ogling the delicious man candy that is Eddie Redmayne and Aaron Tveit. Not to mention it’s one of the most groundbreaking cinematic achievements of the year, and completely deserves all of the accolades it receives.
PG-13, Musical, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Same day as DVD, Weeks before Netflix & Redbox

THIS IS 40- Premiers March 22
This witty Judd Apatow comedy stars Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann in a ridiculously great spin-off from the mega hit KNOCKED UP. Playing the two best supporting characters in cinematic history, Rudd and Mann tackle the hardships of parenting while still remaining hopelessly flawed. Let the hilarity ensue!
R and TV-MA, Comedy, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Same Day as DVD, Weeks Before Netflix & Redbox
