Movies to Watch in September 2016: On Demand With ScreenCrush
How many times has this happened to you: You’re at home, bored, looking for something to watch. You try Netflix, but the movie selection isn’t great (or even good). There are a million viewing options at home and online, but how do you choose what to watch? Enter On Demand With ScreenCrush. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend three handpicked new titles you can watch at home right now from Movies on Demand. These are big new releases you won’t find streaming on Netflix, and the choices run the gamut from indie favorites, to major blockbusters, to insightful documentaries, and everything in between — all available with your remote.
In our third installment, we’ve got a terrific buddy copy from the man who practically invented the subgenre, a fascinating documentary about one of the greatest directors of the 20th century by one of the best directors of the 21st century, and a live-action remake of a Disney classic that manages to capture the magic of the old film in a totally new way. Three totally different movies for three totally different moods, but whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our third episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.
