OWA Recommends: Now Streaming in April 2018

Happy spring, everyone! Springtime in Texas means bluebonnets, rain, and of course our beloved seasonal allergies. As pollen takes over our city, you might be looking for something to keep you entertained during your moments of indoor respite. Enter: this month’s recommendations!  Our favorite streaming services have a great lineup for April - no foolin’! Check it out below and let us know which you watched.


NETFLIX

BATTLEFIELD EARTH (2000)
Available April 1st

Okay, so perhaps we do not recommend this film on the merit of it actually being good... However, if you would like to see a film starring John Travolta that swept the 2000 Golden Raspberry Awards, receiving Worst Picture, Worst Actor and more - this is the film for you! It’s worth it to say that you have seen it… right?

SEVEN (1995)
Available April 1st

What is scarier than a film that follows a retiring police detective and the department’s new transfer as they investigate a number of elaborate and grizzly murders based on the seven deadly sins?  If you have not seen the film - this one is a classic, I promise. After you finish, please Google Gwyneth Paltrow’s Halloween 2017 costume and appreciate its glory.
