Ed Burns


On Demand Weekly is thrilled to welcome fillmaker Ed Burns to our Advisory Board and our terrific roster of contributers. Ed recently blazed a new trail for digital distribution and marketing for the recent premiere of his film NICE GUY JOHNNY. Every month, Ed will share with our readers the list of independent films currently available On Demand he's most interested in watching and offer insight as to why each film makes his Hot List. We hope you enjoy and look forward to your feedback. - ODW

As an indie film lover, and parent, who doesn't get to to the theater like I used to, I now watch most movies at home. I wanted to reach out to other like-minded people, who are looking for good movies to watch on their On Demand services. Many of these titles I used to catch in the arthouse theater, and sadly, most of them have been slipping through the cracks.

So you can find me here once a month and I will tip you off to the films I'll be watching On Demand.

Indie Movies on Demand Hot List - November, 2010


ALL GOOD THINGS (Magnolia Pictures)
- Some terrific actors, including Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella, and a real life story set in New York in the 80's, makes ALL GOOD THINGS a movie I don't want to miss.



- I am excited to check out TINY FURNITURE, written and directed by Lena Dunham, who also starred in the movie, and has generated terrific press for making this on a tiny budget with friends and family, including her mother and sister. Sounds like an authentic New York story, which I am a big fan of.



- EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is a compelling documentary that will have your head spinning and questioning the lines between art and manipulation. The movie is a truly unique glimpse into some of the most compelling and talented street artists around (most notably the enigmatic Banksy).

New Movies On Demand This Week (THE IDES OF MARCH, BUCKY LARSON)January 17, 2012

New Movies On Demand This Week (THE IDES OF MARCH, BUCKY LARSON)

Don't know what movie to watch on demand? Let On Demand Weekly help you browse through the New Movies On Demand (MOD) every week.

By Britt Bensen



My main regret this week is that it isn't Ryan Gosling's other recent movie DRIVE that is on demand opposite Bucky Larson. it would have been a sweet wardrobe showdown.


Movies On Demand Premiering This Week (January 16, 2012)



THE IDES OF MARCH – Premieres January 17

Might I interest you in a film written, directed and starring George Clooney? Okay, so Clooney isn't the lead (he is in that other movie getting Oscar buzz not on demand yet), but just look at the rest of the cast: Ryan Gosling, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood. The once up-and-comer Ryan Gosling, is now a leading man. He's in interesting films, if not box office bofo (DRIVE, BLUE VALENTINE) and who doesn't love a political thriller. Hoffman and Giamatti are perfectly cast as rival campaign managers. I'd watch a series based on their two characters and the sleeze they would bring to office every four years. Hello HBO, Showtime, AMC? Kudos to whoever brought them on board. Unfortunately they're never on the screen at the same time. But they use the other characters to carry out their needs on the campaign trail.


I'm not crazy about the actual plot IDES revolves around. It missed the opportunity to be an iconic political film with this stellar cast. Clooney includes some impressionable dialogue as potentially pragmatic politician, but his actions belie a more scandalous, manipulative persona. It leaves you less enamored with an idealogue you would want to believe in. A notion we're all too familair with in real life. An idea that refutes any hope for change.


The unfortunate storyline aside, IDES is well acted and worth a rental to just watch these superb actors.
Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood
R, Drama

Same day as DVD.


BUCKY LARSON: BORN TO BE A STAR – Premieres January 17

Adam Sandler continues to astound with the movies he produces. GROWN UPS. JUST GO WITH IT. ZOOKEEPER. JACK AND JILL. And now BUCKY LARSON. Your movie demanding privileges should be revoked if you rent this.
Nick Swardson, Christina Ricci
R, Comedy
