All the Frozen fans who thought they were going to have to “let it go, let it goooo” can rest happily with new material. This week Hulu released the first episode of “The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic.” See why Variety gave it two thumbs up here. However, Netflix brings us back to the Disney basics with its recent addition of the 1960’s classic Swiss Family Robinson.
Amazon Prime added the 2013 film Star Trek Into Darkness this week. Some people like movie reboots; others don’t. Either way, you can find one CT critic’s thoughts here.
Enjoyers of indie films can soak up this September with 13 suggestions from Indiewire that are now available on VOD. Of particular (possibly controversial) interest might be God Help the Girl: a story in which main character Eve runs away from a psychiatric hospital and follows her dreams to be a musician. The film was successful at several festivals this year. See the full movie list, trailers, and descriptions here.
Also on Netflix, if you finished your Fantasy Football league in time for the season start this week, then you’re in sync with the release of Season 1 of the (often very crass) TV series The League—a reality show about the fantasy football league in Chicago. Your weekend could be simultaneously full of playing and watching people play virtual football. Touchdown!1
