More Movies to Watch in August 2016: On Demand With ScreenCrush
Can’t decide what to watch? Paralyzed by indecision at the sight of the staggering number of choices on streaming services, and their roster of titles that constantly appear and disappear? How can you know what’s worth your time and money?
That’s where our new series, On Demand With ScreenCrush, comes in. 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 second installment, we’ve got a quirky arthouse favorite from one of the world’s boldest and most inventive filmmakers, the feature debut from one of TV sketch comedy’s funniest duos, and a mockumentary about a pop star so dumb he makes the guys from Spinal Tap look like Nobel Prize winners. They’re all comedies, but three totally different kinds. No matter your sense of humor, you’re guaranteed to find something that’ll tickle your funny bone.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our second episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.
