On Demand movie highlights

SICKO ½

(Comcast Free Movies) One of Michael Moore’s best movies to date, and not just because he turns the dial down on his own faux-folksy schtick. Resolved: The American health care system is a disaster, built to punish the sick and enrich corporations. Whatever you call Moore’s films — agitpop, advocacy entertainment, Commie propaganda, the Truth — this one shows a master gadfly at the hilarious and sobering top of his game. (PG-13; runs through Feb. 20)

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA ½

(Comcast Movie Collections) In this animated creature feature, Adam Sandler voices Dracula as a fretful father sheltering his daughter (Selena Gomez) from humans. He builds his monster resort as an elaborate means to that end, but complications ensue when they’re visited by a backpacker (Andy Samberg). Some might say there isn’t enough that’s fresh, even if every generation of trick-or-treaters deserves its monster mash. Still, there’s likable energy throughout, and smart touches add up. (PG; runs through April 30)

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4

Continue reading below

(Comcast Movie Collections) It takes almost no effort or ingenuity to keep this franchise going. Same conceit, new home. These are the movies of our times: housing angst, recording devices everywhere, quiet suburban disorder. This time a little weirdo spends time with the family across the street and digital cameras record what happens. The air is suspenseful calm. The ending is virtually plagiarized. (R; runs through July 12)
