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’s Top Movies On Demand For The Guys

It’s November! The universal month of intense eating. Mainly because of the glorious holiday Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the most beautiful day because it’s just a day for eating, and that thing about the pilgrims and the Indians, but mostly eating. A lot of times drinking too. Lots of Beer, and lots of happiness. Now when you’re in that awkward stage between binging on mashed potatoes and passing out because all of the tryptophan, why don’t you sit down, relax, and put on a nice Movie on Demand. I’ve got your top November picks already chosen so literally you don’t have to do any work at all. Happy November!
 
Top On Demand Films For Guys:
 
 
THE EXPENDABLES 2 - Premieres November 20
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This film is essentially action porn, and probably your number one fantasy if you’re the type of guy that feels Call of Duty just gets you. It’s like Christmas! Mixed with bloodthirsty revenge and explosions. This sequel is a contemporary look at the emotional intensity of life and purpose and…no I’m just messing with you. It has guns! Lots and Lots of guns!
R, Action / Same day as DVD

SAVAGES - Premieres November 13
This plot is literally about two well-mannered pot growing bros, Ben (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch), who raise the dankest bud, have a ridiculously successful business, and share Blake Lively. Are you serious? This is legitimately the wet dream of every high school senior in California. Throw in some angry Mexicans and you’ve got yourself a racist crime drama that really starts to heat up when Salma Hayek kidnaps Bake Lively. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on with this film, but Blake Lively is naked for half the movie. That’s probably the only thing that matters.
R, Action / Same day as DVD, 28 days before Netflix

THE CAMPAIGN - Premieres October 30
The dream team of Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell come together for this comedy about two CEOs who concoct an elaborate scheme to oust the long-term Congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) by pitting the outrageously naïve Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) against him. It’s a hilarious blend of crude humor and political satire that is so offensive you can’t help but love it. Notable mention to the two corrupt CEOs played by the incomparable Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow. Comedy royalty right there.
R, Comedy / Same day as DVD, Weeks before Netflix

A Film For The Babes That The Guys Will Like:

THE WATCH - Premieres November 13
It’s Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, and Vince Vaughn fighting aliens that have overrun their small suburban town. Also it’s a comedy that you can watch that your babe will like. Really I put it on their list! It’s funny, the actors are great, and it has unexpected extraterrestrial life forms. Really guys be thankful that I didn’t suggest STEP UP REVOLUTION. You’re welcome.

Guys and Babes:

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN - Premieres November 9

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.

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.

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!

Top 6 Sci-Fi / Fantasy TV Series & Movies Now On DemandSeptember 08, 2014


Top 6 Sci-Fi / Fantasy TV Series & Movies Now On Demand

Game of Thrones (HBO)

Hey On Demanders! I know your film palettes are bustling to the brim with Daniel Day-Lewis being dramatic, Meryl Streep being dramatic, some stately British actor being dramatic, and a nice Jim Carrey comedy thrown in for good measure. But sometimes you need to escape the land of Aaron Sorkin scripts and crying, and watch some guy with a sword get seared to death by a CGI dragon.

That’s where I come in. As the author of “ZO of the Marked Age” a post apocalyptic fantasy novel, I consider myself a huge fan of genre fiction. I live for wizards in high towers, apocalyptic time frames, medieval familial dysfunction, bat shit crazy dystopias, and lots and lots of dragons. That’s why I’ve compiled my top On Demand Sci-Fi/Fantasy films and TV series for your viewing pleasure. Grab yourself some mead and a “Down with society” T-Shirt and check out my top six picks below!

 

GAME OF THRONES - Available on HBO GO 
HBO's fantasy hit is a dynamic story that redefines the phrase "dysfunctional family". Its Emmy nominated cast has propelled this character driven show forward, defining it as one of the most watched and critically acclaimed dramas in recent years. Based on George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, "Game Of Thrones" is equal parts bloody, raunchy, and shocking. It’s a must see for fantasy enthusiasts and TV fans alike. And did I mention there are dragons?

REVOLUTION - Available on HULU
This post apocalyptic science fiction series, helmed by J.J. Abrams’ production company, garnered a huge cult following in its two seasons. One committed binge watch and you’ll be completely engrossed in the "Revolution" world. Set fifteen years after a permanent global blackout, this imagining of post apocalyptic America deals with the fallout of a near future society that must now deal with the consequences of its own destruction.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER - Available on AMAZON PRIME & NETFLIX
Buffy is one of the best heroines in TV history. For seven seasons she kicked ass, staked vampires, dealt with the apocalypse, died on more than one occasion, all while trying to decide which lipstick went best with her killer outfit. Thanks to Joss Whedon we have Buffy in our lives and now you can too. All 145 episodes are available On Demand, and you should go watch them now! 

 

If you’re not watching Buffy,

I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.



THE WALKING DEAD - Available on NETFLIX
