Plus Watch Wonder Woman, Killing Gunther, and Get some free love
Dead men tell no tales, but they do entertain
Avast ye landlubbers, for it be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrg. Ok, we’re done speaking pirate, but we’re still celebrating the follyday (fake holiday, is that a thing?) that also happens to be the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Four movies, plenty of curses (but not cursing), and countless bottles of rum have led up to this fifth and final chapter in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. It’s Capt. Jack Sparrow’s “final” voyage (mmhmm, there’s a rug store down the street that’s been going out of business for the last 10 years too), and this film fills its sails with the action, laughs, and undead pirates you’d expect – and ups the ante with ghost sharks. Shiver me timbers. (Ok we lied, we weren’t done.) So, grab ye mates, secure the treasure (the movie), and drop anchor on the couch, savvy?
See even more dead people
A different kind of ghost story, A Ghost Story haunts not in a horror movie sense, but in how it tells the story of love, loss, memory, and time. It doesn’t have flickering lights, things creeping out of the shadows, or that eerie horror sound effect favorite – the waterphone. But it does tie in a love story, loneliness and denial, and a little bit of time warping. It’s an arty little indie, that’s worth the heartbreaking and heartwarming ride.
A wondrous rental
Wonder Woman is now available for rent. If you haven’t seen this powerhouse of a movie yet, well now’s your chance. Directory Patty Jenkins does a job worthy of an Amazon and delivers both a hero and a movie we can all be proud of.
Ah-nold is back
We’ve got a special treat for you. This Friday, you’ll be able to watch Killing Gunther BEFORE it hits theaters. Whaaa? How is this possible? Don’t ask questions, just watch it. (Do it, do it naow. Well, do it Friday…)
Arnold Schwarzenegger is Gunther, the world’s greatest assassin (of course he is), and he’s being hunted by a group of less established assassins trying to make a name for themselves. Hilarious hijinks ensue.
Feel free to feel the love
Love is in the air. And on your screen. And it’s free in both places. With fall just around the corner, we’ve got a bunch of free movies you can fall in love with as you cuddle with your S.O. to keep warm.
The Material Girl takes charge as director of W.E., her vision of King Edward VIII’s abdication of the British throne in the name of love. We’ve also got the story of love in the inner-city of Houston with Jason’s Lyric, the story of a man (hey Matt LeBlanc, how you doin?) who literally falls crazy in love whenever he falls for a girl with Lovesick, and a movie that brings new meaning to being lovesick (the feeling, not the last movie) with Griffin & Phoenix.
