Movie theaters are slowly reopening, but most of the new releases are headed to streaming services rather than the big screen. Whether you’re staying at home to limit potential risks, or just saving a few bucks by watching from the couch, we’ve organized a huge list with many of the newly added films and some upcoming titles.
Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans
Animation, Fantasy, Family, Action, Adventure, TV Movie | Streaming: July 21 | IMDb
Starring: Nick Offerman, Tatiana Maslany, Emile Hirsch
Synopsis: The heroes from the Trollhunters series team-up on an epic adventure to fight the Arcane Order for control over the magic that binds them all.
Rock, Paper, Scissors
Comedy | Streaming: July 20 | IMDb
Starring: Vahe Sevani, Bjorn Yearwood, Jenna Aitken, Joey De Marco, Jeremy Dozier, Kristopher Maz, Lisa Stiles
Synopsis: Best friends Kelvin (Vahe Sevani, 2 Guys and a Girl) and Cheddar (Bjorn Yearwood, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), invariably avoiding the constant threat of wedgies, will do anything to stop being losers and start being the cool kids in school. Permanently placed in the friend zone by ladies, bullied on a daily basis by the jocks and dying to be noticed by anyone, they have one final chance: to win the ultra-cutthroat International Tournament of Rock Paper Scissors!
Cody’s Review: It’s childish, it’s stupid, and you’ll feel a little worse for watching it, but you’ll laugh along the way. Rock Paper Scissors is packed with unapologetic junior high humor, complete with stupid antics, low effort plots, and plenty of dick jokes. Imagine crossing American Pie (albeit even more juvenile) with a stereotypical 80s camp movie, and set it all in the raucous world of competitive Paper Rock Scissors tournaments. If you’re expecting something great here, stop it! This movie is dumb… and that’s what makes it enjoyable, assuming you can turn off your brain for 90 minutes to enjoy it. The story and characters aren’t deep, and there are plenty of lines that will leave you groaning, and the story doesn’t ask you to care. As for the technical stuff, it’s not hard to spot that this was shot on a fairly tight budget by some relatively inexperienced filmmakers. Some scenes have so-so lighting and poor color grades, there are occasional audio mistakes, the cast list doesn’t have any notable names, and none of it looks terribly polished. But who cares… none of these are big problems, and this isn’t the type of movie that should be judged harshly. Verdict: If you want a low-brow movie that makes no effort to be politically correct, Rock Paper Scissors is a good watch, and I assume a decent companion to the right supplements. But if you’re at all on the fence, this one probably isn’t for you.
