Enjoy a Despicable family movie night this Thanksgiving weekend



Guess who’s back, back again. Gru is back, tell a friend. Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back….


Despicable Me 3 is now available on Vudu in up to 4K +HDR. That’s right, Gru, the girls, and the Minions are back for a third adventure – and it’s just as hilarious and family-friendly as the previous ones. So, take a break from hosting and relax with Despicable Me 3.


We’ve put together a few tips to help make family movie night quick and easy (and fun) – because we know the tryptophan is already kicking in…


But before we get started, gather all your sidekicks and set the mood with this exclusive clip:



Gru + Dru + You (and your family)


If you haven’t already, pick up Despicable Me 3. (Kind of important for movie night.)


Then, since movies need snacks, have the kids – and even the kids at heart – make some Minions snack holders. (via


Next, you’ll want to sharpen your mind for maximum villainy with a crossword and other fun games.


Now that you’re almost ready to watch, why not watch in Minion-vision with these easy to make Minions goggles. (via

What’s new this week, a blonde bombshell, and free movies


The (Viking) world will be yours


Yeah, yeah, we know what you’re thinking – it’s the History Channel. But let’s not forget that history is filled with drama, violence, and lots of other things that make great TV.  This popular series tells the tale of historical hero Ragnar Lothbrok and his rise to King of the Vikings with some very interesting (and bloody) storylines.


Right now, you can get a special “box set” of the first four seasons for 66% off, and pre-order season five. It’s time to Viking up.



What’s the deal with Seinfeld?


The show about nothing is on Vudu. That’s right. The entire series – man hands, doing the opposite, being master of your domain, yada yada, the puffy shirt, muffin tops, Newman!, and more – is all here. So while there’s no soup for you, there’s definitely lots of Seinfeld for you.




This rental is the bomb


If you’re looking for explosive action, Atomic Blonde delivers. Rent this hard-hitting action flick that pits Charlize Theron against…well, basically everybody. Think John Wick, except now he is a she and her name is Lorraine Broughton – and her bullet count (and body count) are everything we’d expect from an action flick this nuclear. Here comes the boom indeed.



Watch free movies – Fight for Justice Collection


Justice is worth fighting for, but you know what you don’t have to fight for? Free movies. Watch Kurt Russell solve a quadruple-homicide in Dark Blue, Jean-Claude Van Damme in Universal Soldier, a one-eyed Jeff Bridges in a great remake of True Grit, Dwayne Johnson rock his hometown in Walking Tall, and a bunch of other great movies for free.




This week is nuts: Watch The Nut Job 2 and pre-order A Bad Moms Christmas and Thor: Ragnarok

Also, watch Wind River and rent The Dark Tower, Kidnap, and Patient Seventeen



Movie titles don’t get much better than Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. I mean really, how can you not want to watch this movie. (OPP = Other People’s Pistachios). So gather the scurry (yes, there is a name for a group of squirrels) and watch this adorable sequel (squeak-quel?) this weekend. No kids? No problem. There’s plenty of humor in it for kids at heart too.



Also dropping today is Wind River, a crime thriller that drops the temperature on Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as they work together to solve the murder of a young woman that’s as brutal as the Wyoming winter.


New to rent



Perhaps you were locked in a dark tower and missed The Dark Tower in the theaters. This adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name pits Idris Elba (The Gunslinger) against a vengeful and destructive Matthew McConaughey (deceptively named Walter) in a supernatural battle for the universe. Saddle up and rent it today, cowboy.



We’ve also got Kidnap, staring Halle Berry as a mom on a mission to rescue her kidnapped son. Not to be confused with The Call, which also stars Halle Berry helping a kidnap victim – but this time as a 911 operator. (Pro-tip: Don’t let Halle Berry watch your kids.)


And if you’re up for some conspiracy theory and little green/grey men, check out Patient Seventeen, a documentary that follows a surgeon who claims to remove microchips embedded by aliens from their human abductees. #thetruthisoutthere


Pre-order galore



It’s almost that time of year again…that’s right, it’s almost time for snow, shots, and Santa. The Bad Moms are back with A Bad Moms Christmas, and we’ve already got our fingers on the pre-order triggers for this Friday. (Sip on that spiked eggnog.) This movie looks as hilarious and inappropriate as the first and we’re not ashamed to admit that we can’t wait to watch it.



Know what else we can’t wait to watch? Thor: Ragnarok. Aka the adventures of Thor and Hulk. (We know each other. He’s a friend from work.) We’re also excited about the elements of the Planet Hulk comic book storyline that have been added. But we hear there’s a bit of Bifrost chaos with the bridging of other pieces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we’ll see how that goes. Pre-order starts Friday.


Speaking of which…Watch free Marvel’s Avengers: At It Again


How convenient, free Marvel to hold us over while we wait for the Thor movie to come out. Coincidence? You decide. But it’s not like you can be mad at free titles like Thor Animated Movie: Tales of Asgard, Planet Hulk, Ultimate Avengers: The Movie, Doctor Strange, and more. All free and all awesome.
