127 Hours
Starring: James Franco, Kate Mara, Amber Tamblyn, Treat Williams, Kate Burton
Director: Danny Boyle
Fox Searchlight
Rated R for language and some disturbing violent content/bloody images

It’s extremely hard and asking a lot for one actor to carry the weight of an entire film on his or her shoulders. The actor needs to be engaging and have the personality and charisma to keep the audience intrigued by their performance. Philip Baker Hall did it in “Secret Honor”, Tom Hanks did it in Cast Away, Sam Rockwell did it in Moon, Ryan Reynolds did it in Buried, and now James Franco does it in 127 Hours. The latest film from Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle, 127 Hours is a harrowing and distressing account of one man’s struggle for survival. 127 Hours is now available on VUDU to own or to rent in SD, HD, and HDX, and it is available 28-days before Netflix!

On VUDU Before Theaters Film Review: Rubber

Rubber
Starring: Stephen Spinella, Jack Plotnick, Wings Hauser, Roxane Mesquida, David Bowe
Director: Quentin Dupieux
Magnolia Pictures
Rated R for some violent images and language

During horror movies, we often remind ourselves “it’s only a movie” and that nothing we see on screen is real. It is a work of fiction meant only to entertain. Once we can separate ourselves from the fact that nothing is real, we can suspend our disbelief, and immerse ourselves in the world with which we are presented. Quentin Dupieux’s experiment with genre, Rubber, is fully aware that it is just a movie, even being so blatant as to have a character address the audience that things will happen for “no reason.” What we are presented with then, is a wholly original film that is bizarre, humorous, and a truly wild adventure as the line between movie and audience is thrown out the window. Rubber is now available to rent on VUDU in SD, HD, and HDX as part of our Sneak Peeks program. It is available more than a month ahead of its theatrical release.
