More Movies to Watch in December 2016: On Demand With ScreenCrush
It can get pretty overwhelming trying to pick something to watch, what with the hundreds (thousands?) of choices at your fingertips. That’s where our new series, , comes in. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend 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, 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 eleventh installment, we’re winding down 2016 with three more picks from the last calendar year. Love Meryl Streep (and terrible opera singing)? You’re gonna want to check out Florence Foster Jenkins. Love Renee Zellweger (and paternity drama)? Bridget Jones’s Baby is for you. Love President Obama (and First Lady Michelle Obama even more)? Check out Southside With You, a romantic comedy that’s basically “When POTUS Met FLOTUS.” 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 eleventh episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.

Southside With You
