Bring the thrills in The Owners. This horror flick stars Maisie Williams in a story about a home invasion. What starts off as an easy-as-pie score quickly goes downhill when the owners get home early, and the criminals realize they messed with the wrong house as they spiral into a nightmare.
Travel back in time in American Woman. This film is inspired by the true events of Patty Hearst’s kidnapping in the 70’s, and follows the political activist assigned to take care of her through it all.
Pixar goes hand in hand with many of our childhood favorites. We all remember the moment the toys in Toy Story came to life, and the moment Nemo got lost in the deep ocean. The amount of times these magical films tugged at our heartstrings is hard to count. So here are some of our favorite Pixar flicks, and what’s even better – you can get them all for a serious deal for a limited time in our Pixar Fest sale.
The Incredibles 2

And in the meantime, her husband Bob has to bring out his inner superhero to find balance within their home. But it isn’t long before a villain brings the whole family out to fight for what’s right in a heart-pounding adventure fit for the whole family. But the flick is more than just a good time – it’s got some great family lessons too. Sacrifice and care for your loved ones are at the heart of the story, as Mr. Incredible takes over everything the family needs at home while Elastigirl is out fighting crime.

Go up up and away in Up! This fun flick stole our hearts with its touching story and adorable characters, and gave us plenty of memorable moments too. The Academy Award-winning film centers on an old man named Carl, who takes the adventure he’s always dreamed of to South America. When he gets there he meets an overly positive Boy Scout named Russel, a quirky talking dog, a 13-foot bird and more colorful characters and creatures. They form some of the most unlikely bonds and go on a wild journey that none of them ever expected – reminding us that the surprises in life help make it more special than anything.
Go beneath the surface in Inside Out. This film stands out with the unique way it shows ideas never before seen in animation. The story centers on a young girl named Riley, who makes a big cross country move to San Francisco. But the stars of the show are her emotions: Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and Sadness. We see them all personified as colorful little characters in Riley’s mind, and get to know her as we watch them react to everything she deals with – good times, bad times, and everything in between. The emotions are all voiced by hilarious and talented actors we all know and love, and the flick is a wonderful one to share with younger members of the family to spark some thoughtful and provoking discussions too.

Class is back in session – except this class involves magic. Today we’re looking back at some of our favorite moments from Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone to celebrate our Back to Hogwarts sale. This film got many of us to fall in love with the magical world of Hogwarts and set the groundwork for one of the most imaginative and beloved franchises of all time. So here are our favorite magical moments from the film that started it all.
Harry Gets His Hogwarts Letter
This is one of the first moments in which we see Harry Potter experience true magic. After years of suffering at the Dursleys, Harry finally gets a piece of good news – with a little bit of payback too. Although his uncle tries taking away all the letters addressed to Harry, magic finds a way. And a flock of owls come to the house to make sure Harry (and the Dursleys) get the message loud and clear. Things are finally turning around, and a shower of letters inviting Harry to attend the most magical school of all is a wonderful way to show it.
A Train Ride Like No Other
If getting his Hogwarts letter is life-changing, the train ride to Hogwarts takes Harry to the next level. The train is where Harry first meets Ron and Hermoine – and their friendship from there on is history. Bonding over tons of magical candy sure doesn’t hurt either.
And who could forget those mischievous chocolate frogs too?
Welcome To Your House
Are you a brave Gryffindor, a loyal Hufflepuff, wise Ravenclaw, or shrewd Slytherin? The magical sorting hat gets to decide. And this is one of the most exciting scenes of the film, where Harry, Hermoine and Ron’s friendship becomes solidified as they’re all sat at the Gryffindor table, and the rivalry between them and Malfoy’s crew intensifies. All of these factions become the groundwork for the countless adventures to come.
Magic Gets Competitive
Once you’ve spent enough time at Hogwarts, you realize that being a wizard doesn’t come easy. Nothing shows that better than this super quotable scene in which super-studious Hermoine tries to teach Ron how to do a levitation spell. And his inability to grasp it shows us just how hard doing magic really is – with a healthy dose of humor and friendly rivalry too.
The First Quidditch Game
It’s not just magic that’s competitive though. Like any proper school experience, sports are a big part of the excitement. And there’s nothing more exhilarating than a game of Quidditch. So when Harry catches the snitch during his first game and scores the win for Gryffindor, it’s more than just a win. It’s the moment that helps him start to gain the confidence to become one of the most powerful wizards who have ever lived.
