We understand how busy things can get. It’s a challenge trying to see every movie when they are in theatres, mainly because the top Hollywood studios give you so many great choices week after week. But On Demand exists so you can fill in those gaps and we wanted to single out some hit movies to watch at home.
Family-Friendly: Spies in Disguise
This animated comedy has star power to burn, with Will Smith and Tom Holland lending their voices. But the plot is… unusual? Smith plays a 007-type secret agent who, in the middle of a mission, gets turned into a bird. Yes, a bird. Kids are bound to love it, though, so get the whole family together and cue up SPIES IN DISGUISE.
R-Rated Comedy: Good Boys
OK, keep the kids away from this one… unless it's your teenagers, because they’ll laugh themselves silly. GOOD BOYS comes from the mind of Seth Rogen, and essentially takes the R-rated friendship vibes of SUPERBAD and applies them to middle school. Raunchy, but memorable fun awaits.
Action-Packed: Angel Has Fallen
Credit Gerard Butler for sustaining this action franchise over the years. Butler continues to play secret service tough guy Mike Banning, who has protected the nation’s top politicians on America’s soil and abroad. Now, he’s framed for a crime he didn’t commit (of course), but he’s still racing to stop the enemy before the president (Morgan Freeman) can get hurt. Classic Banning.
Horror: It Chapter Two
Looking for a good scare? Pennywise the Clown is back in business as the adaptation of Stephen King’s IT expands the story. Years after they thought they killed the generational evil, the adult members ofthe Losers’ Club have to reunite in Derry and once again wage war on the greatest threat they have ever faced. Buy or rent it now and see how Bill Hader steals every scene.
AMC Artisan: The Peanut Butter Falcon
Positive word of mouth led this indie darling to box office success, but it can always use more eyeballs. Shia LaBeouf gives, arguably, the best performance of his career as a loner who agrees to help a young man with Down syndrome (Zack Gottsagen) reach a destination he’s always dreamed of seeing. Dakota Johnson co-stars in this beautiful, lyrical story of friendship and hardship.
