On Demand movie highlights

Django Unchained ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) In Quentin Tarantino’s clear-eyed and completely out of its mind exploitation western, Jamie Foxx plays a freed slave in 1853 on the way to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a Mississippi plantation. Tarantino has never been more himself than he is here: grisly kitsch rigged for shock in a way that refuses to cheapen the atrocity of its subject. With Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and an audacious Samuel L. Jackson. (R; runs through Oct. 24)

Safe Haven½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Nicholas Sparks’s latest passably ambles along in generic-melodrama mode before finally insulting audience intelligence one time too many. Julianne Hough (“Rock of Ages”) plays a domestic-violence fugitive trying to start over in a sleepy coastal town, where she catches the eye of widowed dad Josh Duhamel. Some three-hankie stuff, but a back story kisses dramatic adequacy goodbye, and the movie heaps on a final flourish that’s stunningly ludicrous. (PG-13; runs through Nov. 6)

(Encore on Comcast) This movie wants to do for Jamie Foxx what “48 Hrs.” did for Eddie Murphy — turn a talented comic into an action-movie star. It’s too formulaic to do the job. Foxx is fine with the smart motormouth stuff, as he plays a petty crook used to smoke out the mastermind of a big federal gold heist. But the by-the-numbers action cliches do him in — and David Morse, too, as a brutal agent. (R; runs through Oct. 26)
