One of My Favorite Movies Hits On Demand in June – See Which One It Is

220px-Lone_Survivor_posterA cavalcade of movies is arriving On Demand in June, including one of my favorites, not only of this year, but of all time.

Notable June titles include “Lone Survivor” (that’s not it, but I’ll watch any movie with Mark Wahlberg), “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” (ditto for Kevin Costner and Chris Pine), “Non-Stop” (ditto again for Liam Neeson), “RoboCop” (ditto again for Joel Kinnamon), and “300: Rise of an Empire in 3D” (didn’t see it; I’ve sworn off sword-and-sandal movies until they can prove to me they’re worthy).

So what’s my favorite? “The LEGO Movie”! Yes, those plastic toys every parent has stepped on and cursed are finally proving that they’re fun for parents too! Read my review over here, in which I marveled at the sheer entertainment value.

Here’s a look at “Movies on Demand” June premieres. Note that many of these are being released On Demand either the same day as their theatrical release or even BEFORE. If you want to hang out at home and watch it from your couch, you go! Bet your popcorn’s cheaper too.
