Movies and Videos On Demand For The Week Of September 24, 2021

As we prepare for the opening of theaters and the return to normal life practices, we want to remind people that we are still within the thralls of a pandemic, and recommend people check out our article on “If You Should Go Out” Here. Until then though, if you do go to a theater make sure it has a policy of requiring attendees to wear masks, and sit in isolated groups out of proximity of other viewers.

Dear Evan Hansen – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 47%

If you like the Broadway production, or haven’t had the chance to see it, Ben Platt returns to the role that he made famous, portraying an isolated high schooler who deals with the rough and cruel nature of the growing up in the social-media age.

A lot of people are commenting on the fact that while this story is powerful and interesting, that Ben Platt has a heard time portraying a teenager. If you can get past that, the story is very well put together.

I’m Your Man – Releasing in Theaters

A hard choice has to be made by Alma, played by Maren Eggert, to get the funds needed for her own research, she will have to participate in a three week study. The study will force her to live with a humanoid robot, played by Dan Stevens, who is designed to be her perfect partner. Does humanity have anything to worry about, when a robot can meet all the modern needs of a relationship and love.

Oddly enough, this reminds me of the story of Bicentennial Man. Mankind has always wanted to connect with what ever they could to remove themselves from loneliness. This movie delves into that concept when dealing with love and a potential mate when it’s designed for them.
