Movies and Videos On Demand For The Week Of October 28, 2022

All Quiet On The Western Front – Releasing on Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 94%

Based on the book by bestseller Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front tells the of a group of soldiers, from the perspective of Paul, played by Felix Kammerer, as a group of German soldier have their idea of war attacked by the reality and brutality of battle.

A German prospective of World War I, and with an important realization of the hell that is war. It’s a stark change in Hollywood that tends to follow the propaganda style of production that makes War look like an event that breeds heroes and action stars. War is hell, and this film will do a good job showcasing that factor.

Call Jane – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 78%

Set in Chicago in 1968, in a world where women have to struggle to find a safe place for an abortion. Joy, played by Elizabeth Banks, finds herself pregnant, but her heart would prevent her from surviving the birth. When she is turned down across the board of medical establishments, she has to turn to an underground group of women and activists who champion the cause of giving women the chance to have safe access to abortion.

With the current events of the world, this film is very on point. People forget how horrible the world was for women who couldn’t bring their child to term, regardless of economic, choice, or health reasons. The world needs to be reminded constantly that banning abortions doesn’t stop them, it just makes them almost completely lethal to all involved.

Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

After solving her case and her brother taking her on as his charge, Enola Holmes, played by Millie Bobby Brown, continues to search out cases to solve. Struggling to be taken seriously as a young female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy in a London who would rather have her older brother’s aide. When she finally gets a case, the simple missing sister unravels to a mystery so large that it even pulls Sherlock Holmes himself into it.

The sequel to the book series, we are glad we are getting more of these films. They really are a nice change of pace from the traditional Sherlock stories. More fun, less pompous and gritty additions of modern cinema. I was worried the law suits would have effected the production, but I’m glad to see that they were able to release another film.
