On Demand movie highlights

ORIGINAL GANGSTAS

(Encore on Comast) This reteaming of black ’70s stars Fred Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier, Richard Roundtree, and Ron O’Neal isn’t the fun pulp blowout it should have been. The movie spends too much time trying to be taken seriously as a statement on empowering black neighborhoods to take back the streets from gangs. The trouble is, it’s written on a bonehead level. Some cool moments, but a big disappointment. (R; runs through Feb. 14)

ACE VENTURA, PET DETECTIVE

(Encore on Comcast) Comedian Jim Carrey’s rubbery face is a wonder. As the finder of lost pets, he’s constantly mugging and mimicking the other actors. Alas, the movie built around him is entirely lacking in wit, with an inane Super Bowl plot that deflates after five minutes. (PG-13; runs through Feb. 28)

A RAGE IN HARLEM

(Comcast Free Movies) Bill Duke’s warmly entertaining film rides Chester Himes’s novel back to Harlem, 1956. There’s more than an echo of “Porgy and Bess” in it as innocent Forest Whitaker falls for slinky Robin Givens, and a mean country type played by Badja Djola, thought dead, comes back to claim her — and a trunk filled with gold. Gregory Hines, Danny Glover, and Zakes Mokae are plusses, too. (R; runs through April 9)
