All the new movies and early theater releases you can watch at home right now


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:

The major lineup of Halloween movies came earlier this month, but that doesn’t mean we’re done with the theme. If you’re looking for something to put in front of the kids, The Whitches is an obvious choice and features Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci. On the other hand, if you’re ready for something considerably more graphic, but still funny, Scare Package is a comedy anthology of seven horror stories as told by a video store clerk. Also keep an eye out for The Craft: Legacy coming out in just a few days.

Holiday hijinks aren’t limited to the ghosts and gouls, it’s evidently time to start preparing for the next major (US) holiday. Friendsgiving brings together a big cast of famous faces like Malin Akerman, Cat Dennings, Aisha Tyler, and others for an absurd Thanksgiving feast.

If you want drama without the laughs, it looks like After We Collided might be a great choice. It’s the sequel to After and it looks like an intense and sexy love story.

And speaking of sequels, it’s time to prove old franchises never die with Tremors: Shrieker Island, which somehow convinced Jon Heder to show up. Hey, it looks like it’ll be awful in the funny way, and there’s a ton of YouTube marketing for it.

There are plenty of other movies to check out from the list, and it’s hard to pin down all of the virtues of each, but I would recommend checking out the previews for Monochrome: The Chromism and Rebecca.

And finally, if the current US election cycle has left you feeling drained, disappointed, despondent, or — idk, some other word starting with ‘d’ — and you want to reminisce for the days when things weren’t drowning in chaos, take a look at the documentary The Way I See It. It features the photographer that covered former presidents Bush and Obama and his insights about how things have changed.

Oh, and now that theaters are getting first run movies every week, I’m adding a section at the bottom for new titles that are hitting only the big screen. I’ll keep it to just the last two weeks so as to keep the list a little more maintained. You can find them at the very bottom, after the section for upcoming titles.

Starring: Donald Sutherland, Tyler Posey, Robert Ri’chard

When an outbreak hits, Aidan barricades himself inside his apartment and starts rationing food. His complex is overrun by infected Screamers, and with the world falling apart into chaos, he is left completely alone fighting for his life.

Cody’s Review: If romantic comedies are called RomComs, would we call this a RomHor? Nah, let’s not make that a thing. Alone may technically be horror, but that’s not how it feels. There’s definitely a nervous energy, but it’s often cut by the friendly and funny interactions between our lonely characters. It’s like the feel-good version of the zombie appocalypse. Just be prepared to suspend your belief as the characters routinely do stupid things and occasionally miss obvious clues. Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) is a bit stiff in his performance, but you can get over it after the first few minutes. Meanwhile, Donald Sutherlin’s limited time on screen comes in the form of an almost oscar-worthy performance filled with a wonderful ‘old man’ quirkiness and charm. I can’t say Alone is a must-see, but I liked it and would recommend it anybody that’s not touchy about zombie chase scenes and pandemic-enduced loneliness. You’ll find it easy to nit-pick little mistakes and the slightly restrictive budget, but the story is endearing and kinda funny in unexpected ways.

All three are resourceful, positive thinkers who strive to adapt and thrive despite dehumanizing forces at play in the American economy. As the film’s heroes face these roadblocks with courage, certain ideals remain sacred: family, love, and staying strong in the face of adversity. Lush cinematography galvanizes a sense of place and, as the narrative unfolds, the intimacy with the characters results in an emotionally rich observational drama. Ultimately, ‘The Disrupted’ reveals a collective American experience of financial challenge, family resilience, and the quest for the purpose and dignity of work.

The Doorman

Action, Thriller | Streaming: October 9 | IMDb

Starring: Ruby Rose, Jean Reno, Aksel Hennie

As the thieves become in creasingly desperate and violent, the doorman calls upon her deadly fighting skills to end the showdown.

Cody’s Review: Tell me if this sounds familiar… A team of dangerous thieves take over a mostly-empty building and take the remaining inhabitants hostage while they work on stealing a fortune, meanwhile a lone hero is accidentally trapped in the same building and sneaks around picking off the bad guys one-by-one. That’s the 1988 classic Die Hard, right? Yes, but it also describes The Doorman. You can find lots of other similarities, even including many of the same antics and plot events, but that all actually serves to make this rendition of the formula a bit more enjoyable. The Doorman doesn’t rise anywhere near the level of a ‘must-see,’ but it stands up well to scrutiny as a ‘why not.’ The cast delivers decent performances, but they lack the characters and gravitas to be as memorable as a John McClane or Hans Gruber. Nevertheless, given the low bar set throughout 2020, it’s quite possible this is the best action movie I’ve seen so far. There’s nothing new or revolutionary here, but if you’ve watched Die Hard too many times (is that possible?) and want to mix things up without changing lanes, The Doorman is a worthy distraction.

Fear PHarm

Horror | Streaming: September 15 | IMDb

Starring: Jenna Burd, Kelly Savanna Deaton, Chris Leary

Four people enter a corn maze for Halloween and are picked off one by one by the twisted family who own the scare attraction.

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.

August 25 | Action, Thriller | IMDb

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.
