March Movies On Demand - Awards Season!


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!

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

ALL IS BRIGHT Starring Paul Giamatti & Paul Rudd - Now On DemandSeptember 11, 2013

ALL IS BRIGHT Starring Paul Giamatti & Paul Rudd - Now On Demand

ALL IS BRIGHT (Anchor Bay)

On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand and from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: ALL IS BRIGHT (Anchor Bay).

See the latest Independent Movie On Demand (IMOD) Trailers here...


By Joe Charnitski


Since Labor Day is barely behind us you may not be ready for Christmas movies, but that shouldn’t keep you from watching director Phil Morrison’s (JUNEBUG) latest film, ALL IS BRIGHT. Yes, the title is taken from a lyric in the classic carol Silent Night, and, yes, the story does center around two French Canadian Christmas tree salesmen in New York City. No, this is not a heartwarming tale of miracles and elves and other wonderful lives.

Paul Giamatti (SIDEWAYS, JOHN ADAMS) plays Dennis, a recently paroled thief who wants nothing more than to start a fresh chapter of his life with his wife and daughter. Unfortunately for him, his wife a) doesn’t want anything to do with him, b) has told their daughter that her father died, and c) has found love with another man while Dennis was locked up. Think it can’t get worse for Dennis? The man who’s now dating his wife is his friend and fellow reformed thief Rene, played by Paul Rudd (THIS IS 40, ANCHORMAN).

Dennis confronts his friend and forces Rene to take him along as a partner on his annual trip to The Big Apple to sell Canadian trees to New Yorkers in search of that perfect holiday decoration. Thus begins their adventure together. Rene wants enough money to come back and propose to Dennis’ wife. Dennis wants to prove that he can thrive in a life above the law, hoping his family will want him back.

The set-up sounds pretty solid in synopsis form and the story is reasonably well constructed, if a little unsurprising. The guys meet some interesting metropolitan characters, the complexity of their relationship is revealed as time passes and the ups and downs of the tree business keep things moving along. The script does feel a little immature, though. The potential of the story is never quite fully developed, and therefore isn’t completely satisfying.

What makes the film worth checking out, though, are the performances. Morrison and his cast were successful in getting every worthwhile element out of this story. Giamatti carries a bitterness and jealousy with him throughout, but moments of shame and embarrassment spotlight the roots of all he’s struggling with. You’ll truly believe his heart is broken over his lost family.

Rudd brings his Peter Pan charm to the role, but with it is a vulnerability and well shaped good intentions. He’s got grand ideas for where his life could go, but little skill at being able to put the pieces together to make it happen. He seems to be fighting hard not to give in to the acrimony that has gotten a hold of Dennis.
