What to See on VOD


By popular demand I am adding a post on what to see and what to avoid on Amazon On Demand, Comcast XFinity on Demand, iTunes, and an assortment of other sources for all those obscure titles that pop up on Video on Demand.  Most people I know don't go to the movies much.  They prefer to watch in the comfort of their own home, and I don't blame them.  But if you're the adventurous type that likes to try to find those hidden gems on your own, beware.  Most of those obscure titles are obscure for a reason.  Yet I love looking for the oyster with the pearl, so below are my reviews of all the films I've seen recently on Video on Demand.  But I encourage you make use of my Best of 2013 By Genre for better new releases up your alleyAnd of course you could (and should) always go back a bit to revisit my Best Films of 2012, Best Films of 2012 By Genre, Best Films of 2011, Best Films of 2011 By Genre, and Best Films of 2010 posts.  As always, I welcome your comments.
