Free Drama Queens are on Movies On Us

Canedy Knowles of Bravo’s Odd Mom Out knows drama queens, and she’s curated a list of her favorites for us

 

 

Save the drama for your mama – especially if your momma knows drama like Marissa from Bravo’s hit show, Odd Mom Out.

 

That’s why we had the very talented, and very funny, Canedy Knowles, who plays Jill’s rage-filled nemesis, guest curate a special Movies On Us Drama Queen collection. Because who better to be the RBF of our free drama queens, than one of the favorite drama queens of Bravo?

 

So check out our free drama queens, and be sure to check out Odd Mom Out, Season 3 available now on Vudu.

 

Odd Mom Out’s Canedy Knowles Presents: Drama Queens

 

On Odd Mom Out, my character, Marissa, is the ultimate Upper East Side Drama queen who loses her temper about everything from kale to Hamilton. So, I bring to you a collection of movies featuring women who know how to make a scene. Whether the film stars dramatic royalty or is simply about women who stand out from the crowd, these movies will inspire even the most timid viewer to let their inner drama queen reign.

 

 

The Iron Lady

Meryl Streep, the ultimate queen of acting, stars as Margaret Thatcher – a woman who bucked societal norms to become England’s first female prime minister. Told through a series of flashbacks, this story reminds us that single-minded ambition and self-sacrifice can change the world.

 

Secretary

This quirky, dark comedy stars Maggie Gyllenhaal in her breakout performance as Lee Holloway, a meek wallflower who becomes the Queen of S&M. James Spader plays the original Mr. Grey who literally spanks her right out of her shell. Her weakness becomes her strength and, in turn, she learns to serve coffee in handcuffs without spilling a drop.

 

 

I Want To Live!

Susan Hayward won an Academy Award for her portrayal of good-time girl Barbara Graham, who faces execution for a murder she claims she didn’t commit. This fictionalized account of true events shows Hayward at her best – fierce and sassy, but also vulnerable and desperate. The dialogue is wicked and witty and you will delight in how effortlessly Hayward delivers every one-liner with aplomb.

 

Quartet

This lovely little dramedy tells the story of a retirement community for aged musicians as its residents prepare for the annual fundraising gala. Maggie Smith stars as a famous opera diva who is forced to face the people she hurt during her long and successful career. Every character in Quartet is an aging drama queen and the ego clashes are delightful to watch. The movie is a hilarious and touching reminder that we are never too old to start anew or act like a diva.

New this week: A Vudu exclusive, The Boss Baby, Free Fire, and Ghost in the Shell

A Vudu exclusive – Space Dogs: Family

 

 

Space Dogs? More like Space Dawwws. Space Dogs: Family just blasted off on Movies On Us with 13 episodes that are ready to orbit your kid’s heart. This series is exclusive to Vudu* and follows three cosmically cute pups looking to follow in their parents Space Dog paw prints.

 

We’ll be releasing 13 new, and exclusive, episodes each month through October, giving you access to the entire first season of this top-rated Russian kids program designed for children 2-7 years old.

 

The Boss Baby takes charge, Free Fire brings fireworks, and Ghost in the Shell comes out of her shell

 

 

Having July 4th fall on a Tuesday and missing out on a three-day weekend is kind of un-American if you ask us. But hey, what do we know? We’re just happy that there are some pretty good movies to watch.

 

Starting today, you can watch Alec Baldwin get to the (baby’s) bottom of things in the hilarious family comedy, The Boss Baby. He’s not large, but he’s in charge, and if he can’t wine and dine you into watching, he’ll just whine until you do.

 

 

Also releasing today, say hello to my little friend – Free Fire. This explosive movie is a powder keg of action and brings its own fireworks show to your Fourth of July party. The brass flies, some people die, and you might never see a shootout like this again.

 

 

On Friday, ScarJo gets robo in Ghost in the Shell. (Well, full-body prosthesis augmented-cybernetic human, but that doesn’t rhyme.) This live action version looks amazing, so we’re excited it’s available in 4K UHD. And because you’ve still got a few days, don’t miss out on the widely-acclaimed original anime.

 

If you hurry, you can even catch the special pre-order bundle of Ghost in the Shell and Aeon Flux. Get them for $19.99 SD or $24.99 HDX, and watch Aeon Flux immediately.

 

Get a date for (Spider-Man) Homecoming

 

With Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters Friday, our Spidey-senses are tingling because it means that starting Friday, you’ll also be able to pre-order it on Vudu. So sling some web to catch the pre-order later this week, and rest easy knowing that it’ll show up in your My Vudu when it’s released.

 

Even more free(dom) for your Fourth   

 

 

There’s nothing more American than free. Free to be you and me. Freedom Fries. Free-range chicken. So throw another T-bone on the ‘cue because there’s about to be a whole lot more free movies to watch.

 

We’ve added 87 free movies to Movies On Us including the original Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze (nothing more American than high school students defeating a Russian invasion, and, duh, Patrick Swayze), The Bad News Bears (careful, it’s a little more colorful than modern kids movies), Hostel (just in case you’re abroad for the Fourth), the endless summer epic – Step Into Liquid, and much more.

 

 

*Every 13-episode monthly release is exclusive to Vudu for 30 days

 

 

 

We’ve been invaded by Space Dogs. And it’s adorbs.

Kid-friendly animated series, Space Dogs: Family, launches exclusively on Vudu! Watch it free today!

 

Just in time for the long weekend, we’re tail-waggingly excited to bring you galactically-big Vudu exclusive – the complete first season of the kid-friendly animated series, Space Dogs: Family.

 

Each month until October, you and your family can watch 13 new episodes this cosmically-fun animated series for free, with limited ads, on Movies On Us. That’s right, we’re launching 13 new episodes, every month, that you can watch all at once – all at no cost to you (this time 13 is a lucky number). The episodes run about five minutes each and are exclusive to Vudu* (so yeah, these Space Dogs have marked their territory).

 

Space Dogs, good for kids. Space itself, not so much.

 

Geared towards younger audiences of 2 – 7 year olds, each episode of Space Dogs: Family orbits around Bublik (Chewy), Dina, and Rex, the affable and adventurous pups of two revered Space Dogs, Kazbek and Belka, as they soar to atmospheric levels of cuteness with their fur-tastic out of this world adventures. (But not to infinity, that’s another franchise.)

 

Pinky in the air, it’s imported

 

The award-winning series is one of the top four most popular children’s brands in Russia (yeah, yeah, but hear us out), and has been popularized and adapted to 11 other languages. The American version is written by Mike Disa, known for his work on Casper, Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs Evil, and Pocahontas.

 

Thematically, the series focuses on friendship, support, acceptance, and curiosity about the world around us – as well as listening to one’s parents (wait, what, no way) – and incorporates them into each episode.

 

Anthropomorphically awwwwww

 

Each of the pups in the canine cast of characters has a relatable personality that follows the typical archetypes favored by animated series geared toward young audiences. Rex is inventive, shy, and curious – and as the eldest of the three, he takes responsibility for the other pups, Dina and Bublik. Dina is fun and cheerful, and a little reckless, but has the confidence to stand up for herself when needed. Bublik, the troublemaker (there’s always one), is part reckless, clumsy, and mischievous, but never gets discouraged and keeps all of their spirits up. (Reminds us of another chippy trio of furry siblings, if you know what we munk.)

 

Bonus mission to the moon

 

On top of the Space Dogs: Family series, we’ve got a special treat for you – no, it’s not a puppy (boo). JK it is (yay)! But not a real one (boo).

 

From now until July 4th, you can watch the animated feature film Space Dogs: Adventure to the Moon on us! That’s right, you rent, we’ll pay. Rent it today for $0 and take up to 30 days to watch it.

 

Watch now, we’re watching you

 

Just kidding, we’re totally not. But you can watch the Space Dogs: Family series, and the movie Space Dogs: Adventure to the Moon, anytime, anywhere (even now), on any device with the Vudu app. So forget the countdown, take one giant leap for your family, and commence liftoff today!

 

* Each set of 13 episodes is exclusive to Vudu for 30 days.

 

 

Bag some CHiPs, go go watch Power Rangers, Lego Batman and John Wick get wicked, and free movies to watch with dad

 

New to Own: CHiPs and Saban’s Power Rangers

 

Own CHiPs on Vudu today!

 

These CHiPs don’t crumble. You might be thinking potato, but we’re talking Poncherello (and Jon). These CHiPs are California Highway Patrol, and they’re anything but crisp in how they go about their job. But that shouldn’t stop you from grabbing a bag of jalapeno chips (our fav) to enjoy while you nom on this tasty reboot.

 

Saban's Power Rangers is now available on Vudu!

 

It’s morphin’ time, and the Power Rangers have morphed into a whole new version of themselves. They still look like a pack of Skittles, but this time around they’re leaner, meaner, and a little more grown up than they were in the TV series. Go go and watch these Power Rangers now on Vudu.

 

Work is murder

 

You don’t want a company bonus from this office. The Belko Experiment is what happens when Battle Royale climbs the corporate ladder. It’s a vicious, brutal, and bloody gore-fest suited up and ready to work. Adulting is hard, and you can watch it go down now, on Vudu.

 

New to Rent: Two dudes in dark suits

 

They’re moody. And broody. And they both wear stylishly black evening suits (tactical, but we’re not sure if Batman’s is European).

 

The LEGO Batman Movie is now available to rent on Vudu

 

More importantly, you can rent both of them now. Watch John Wick: Chapter 2 or The LEGO Batman Movie – or both – on Vudu tonight.

 

John Wick Chapter 2 is now available to rent on Vudu

 

Rent it for yourself or rent it for the fam (we’ll let you sort out which is which, you’re a smart bat), either way, you’ll have 30 days to start watching and 24 hours to finish watching. (‘Puter. ‘Puter! Get both now so we can watch this weekend.)

 

Hey Dad, watch this!

 

Free gunslingers! Watch True Grit free on Movies On Us

 

Ah, the phrase we’ve uttered many times right before we did something dumb – like jump off the balcony (may or may not be a true story). And while the phrase reminds us of childhood, it probably reminds dad of heart attacks.

 

So why not say it to your dad right before you offer up some of these great movies you can watch together – for free.

 

Watch True Grit (a father’s death is avenged!), The Legend of Bruce Lee (trust us, your dad did the thing with the nunchucks too), Out of Time, or even Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey (ask dad if he’s happy you weren’t like them).

There’s also some slick animation of Chip, Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth and gang. (Though not as slick as Gaston. Or as quick as Gaston. Nor is their neck as incredibly thick as Gaston.)

 

Be our guest, own it today on Vudu.

 

A Cure for Wellness is now available for rent

A cure that seems like a curse

 

Feeling a little run down? No worries, we’ve got you covered with A Cure for Wellness.

Movie sequels that keep the curse alive, for free

Watch all these movies and more Killer Sequels free, with Movies On Us.
