Published Mar 31, 2016It's the golden age of streaming, and Canada's finally getting in on the action with a variety of services to deliver us the goods. Along with Netflix Canada and Crave TV, we've also got hours and hours of content to sift through on Shomi. Here are your options from that service for the month of April.
There are a ton of movies set to hit the service this month, adding plenty of comedy, action, drama and romance to your dull life throughout the month of April.
On April 1, you'll mostly want to dig into some comedy with the arrival of excellent flicks like Bad News Bears (2005) Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, I Love You, Man, Major League, A Night at the Roxbury and Wayne's World.
If you're feeling like you want to take a chance on something with less acclaim on April 1, you could also watch the 2005 remake of Bad News Bears, Dinner for Schmucks or Without a Paddle. Further, the excellent Jason Bateman thriller The Gift — which really isn't funny at all — will also hit the service.
Watch it all quickly, however, because come April 5 there'll be another batch of flicks hitting the service. They're a diverse bunch, spanning from Amanda Bynes' terrible yet oh-so-watchable She's the Man to the most sexy movie about pottery ever, Ghost. All of the other movies dropping on April 5 have a "the" in the title, including The Island, The Prince and Me, The Running Man, The Truman Show and The Warriers.
On April 8, you can chill with Shia in Disturbia and watch Nic Cage at his finest in Face/Off. That day also marks the arrival of Almost Famous, Double Jeopardy, The Manchurian Candidate, Saturday Night Fever and The Wood.
April 15 will certainly appeal to Trekkies, as there are six Star Trek movies dropping at once. These include the original Star Trek alongside The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock, The Voyage Home, The Final Frontier and The Undiscovered Country. If you're not down with the Klingons, you can also dig into Things We Lost in the Fire and The Virgin Suicides.
Finally, the film drops conclude with If There Be Thorns and Seeds of Yesterday, both of which drop on April 22.
If you've bought into the idea that television is superior to film, then there are plenty of options on that front as well. Shomi will soon deliver season 5 of Bob's Burgers (April 1), season 1 of Survivor's Remorse (April 8), season 2 of Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce (April 8), season 5 of Shameless (April 11), season 1 of SuperMansion (April 15), season 2 of Wonder Pets (April 15), seasons 1 and 2 of Playing House (April 22), seasons 1 and 2 of The Ren & Stimpy Show (April 22), seasons 1, 2 and 3 of Victorious (April 29) and season 5 of Justified (April 29).
