New to On Demand: Ready Player One

As a child of the ’80s, I grew up with the content featured in Ready Player One from director Steven Spielberg. The references are fast and furious in this film that is set in the future while paying tribute to the past, and that endeared me to the project from the moment I sat down. Wade (Tye Sheridan) lives his life in relative anonymity in the Stacks. His neighborhood in Columbus consists of living quarters that would be best thought of as a glorified junkyard, with places to stay piled on top of each other. But home is not where […]

New to On Demand: Super Troopers 2

Second chances don’t come every day. A second piece of pie is tasty even if you know it’s not good for you. Second dates only happen when the first date succeeds (or, of course, if the girl or guy takes pity on the poor soul who is bound to mess everything up). And sequels usually only come when the original film makes truckloads of cash, but the original Super Troopers only grossed north of $18 million at the box office. So, it was with great interest that I sat down to this unconventional sequel, Super Troopers 2, that was born […]
