Movies to Watch in March 2017: On Demand With ScreenCrush
The Oscars are over, but it’s not too late to catch up with some of 2016’s most talked-about titles. But which ones are worth your time? 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 films 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 15th installment, we have a collection of big-name actors and big-time voices. Natalie Portman was nominated for an Oscar for Jackie, playing former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the days following her husband’s assassination. Denzel Washington was nominated for an Oscar — and Viola Davis won one — for Fences, a powerful adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about the trials and tribulations of a middle-aged married couple. And if you’re in the mood for something a little lighter, Disney’s latest animated hit Moana is now available, featuring Dwayne Johnson as the demigod Maui and great songs by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. No matter what kind of movie you want, you’ll find it on demand.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our 15th episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.
