What to Watch in August 2016: Movies On Demand With ScreenCrush
It seems like there are more movies and TV shows available now than ever before, with thousands of films and series at our fingertips. So why is it so hard to find something to watch? Even with all those choices, it’s tough to know what to pick, and so many streaming services’ titles constantly appear and vanish, seemingly at random. 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 discuss 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. 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 first installment, we’ve got the latest film from one of America’s coolest living directors, one of the biggest movies of 2016 so far, and a terrifying documentary about a threat to our digital infrastructure that could bring about the end of the world. No matter what mood you’re in, there’s always something great to watch.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our debut episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks.
