This story was originally published and last updated .
Movie theaters are slowly reopening, but most of the new releases are headed to streaming services rather than the big screen. Whether you’re staying at home to limit potential risks, or just saving a few bucks by watching from the couch, we’ve organized a huge list with many of the newly added films and some upcoming titles.
New this week:
This week is pretty light on new releases, giving us just over a half dozen notable titles hitting major services.
Fortunately, you can count on getting your action fix this week thanks to a pair of fairly big releases. Rogue Warfare: Death of a Nation brings gonzo warfare to your screen, or you can watch the mostly all-star cast of Ava, including Jessica Chastain, John Malkovich, Common, Colin Farrell, and several others.
Enola Holmes brings a fast-paced comedy set in the world of the famous investigator, but with Henry Cavill and others taking a back seat to Millie Bobby Brown. For something a bit more historically accurate, while still maintaining the comedy, Keira Knightly stars in Misbehaviour. Or lose the comedy for a darker view of the future in LX 2048.
And our documentaries of the week are featuring one of histories most influential clothing designers in Jay Sebring….Cutting To The Truth, and paying respects to the women that take the risks to give us great cinema in Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story.

Cody’s Review: File this in the category: It’s so bad, it’s good. Look, there’s no point pulling punches, Fear PHarm is objectively bad — but it’s also weirdly fun. If you care about movies, you might be driven nuts by the weak acting, inconsistent pacing, frequent continuity and editing mistakes, and the dialog… omg, the dialog can get pretty bad. However, there are some delightfully self-aware moments that left me wondering if the filmmakers were budding geniuses or just some occasionally lucky idiots. Honestly, I think this would have made an incredible episode of Tales from the Crypt, which would work great if they cut all of the excess establishing shots from the 77 minute runtime. Regardless, if you can deal with or enjoy all of the B movie staples (i.e. countless eye-rolling moments, lots of stolen horror and slasher tropes, and a criminal abuse of the Chekhov’s Gun principle), this actually might be worth watching. It’s almost worth it just for the chainsaw guy’s dialog, which is absolutely artful.

Starring: Jesse Metcalfe, Bruce Willis, Lala Kent
The work of billionaire tech CEO Donovan Chalmers (Willis) is so valuable that he hires mercenaries to protect it, and a terrorist group kidnaps his daughter just to get it.
Cody’s Review: Do yourself a favor and avoid this one. Hard Kill is in the running for the worst movie I’ve seen in 2020, a year that has kept us locked inside and watching more (bad) movies than ever — it might even beat Rogue with Megan Fox. On paper, you’ve got a decent cast (including Bruce Willis), some surprisingly high quality cinematography, and competent stunts and effects. Unfortunately, it’s all completely ruined insultingly lazy acting and a script so bad that porn producers would have thrown it out. Every scene… hell, every line seems to be copied from other generic action movies. Bruce Willis and Jesse Metcalfe deliver performances so awful, I wondered if the director instructed them to phone it in so the other actors could look marginally competent by comparison. Somebody should give an interview and claim this movie was only made on a bet, because nobody would believe something this bad would get released otherwise.
