On Demand movie highlights

MELANCHOLIA

(Showtime on Comcast) Lars von Trier, the bad boy of art-house cinema, delivers his most lifeless ode to cosmic misery yet, despite Kirsten Dunst’s valiant performance. Gorgeous visuals, disastrous weddings, and a planet about to collide with Earth: Some call it Art. I say it’s spinach and I say the hell with it. With Charlotte Gainsbourg and Keifer Sutherland. (R; runs through July 9)

PUSS IN BOOTS

(HBO on Comcast) The latest from DreamWorks Animation doesn’t break any new storytelling ground and its reliance on go-go-go action grows wearying, but the devilish wit works for parent and child alike. If it’s not up to Pixar level, it still represents the best of what the competition has to offer. With the voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, and Zach Galifianakis. (PG; runs through July 15)

THE EAGLE

(HBO on Comcast) Dull and thrill-lessly homoerotic. Channing Tatum is a young centurion avenging the death of his father and retrieving a gold statue in the second century AD. Jamie Bell plays his slave. It’s hard to believe the plot failed to amuse the cast and crew. It’s a bunch of men in hot pursuit of an antique. (PG-13; runs through July 15)
