FREE MOVIES FOR FRIDAY

TGIF = THANK GOODNESS IT’S FREE MOVIES

 

After a week of PowerPoint and power lunches, it’s time to power down with some free movies!

 

NEW THIS WEEK

 

Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day, especially when you’re being framed for murder, arson, and stealing $450,000 in drug money. Talk about being Out of Time.

 

 

His name may be a tongue-twister, but Nicholas Nickleby always walks the straight and narrow. Watch Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur, Sons of Anarchy) sport a different kind of horsepower in this Charles Dickens classic.

 

 

When the going gets tough, the decisions get tougher. The Allied POWs of Hart’s War will risk it all for a chance at a brighter tomorrow.

 

FREE DOCUMENTARIES

 

From the famously fabulous to the wonderfully weird, these films let us experience some of humanity’s most fascinating people firsthand (and for free).

 

 

Meryl Streep had us believing The Devil Wears Prada, but her real-life inspiration is as devilishly smart as she is fashionable. The September Issue has all the juicy details.

 

 

Long before Captain America was punching out Nazis on-screen, this real world-famous Nazi hunter was putting them behind bars. Watch I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal for the unforgettable true story.

 

 

Same as it ever was? Not this documentary. Alien dance moves + a who’s who of funk legend guest stars + one REALLY big suit = the greatest concert film ever made. The Talking Heads cordially invite you to Stop Making Sense.

 

FREE COLLECTIONS

 

Dust off your leg warmers and wake up your Tamagotchi; it’s time for Throwbacks: The 80s & 90s. Pump up the nostalgia for free with classic titles like My Girl, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and Child’s Play.

 

 

Put the novelty tie back on the rack and give dad what he really wants this Father’s Day: free movies and TV! Watch with Dad has Jonah Hex, Big Fish, Last Resort, and more for all the fatherly bonding you can handle.

Big Trouble in Little Entebbe

Watch 7 Days in Entebbe now, no negotiating needed. Watch on Vudu!

 

Entebbe was a relatively unknown town on a peninsula in Lake Victoria, in Central Uganda, until an act of terrorism made it the focus of the world. 7 Days in Entebbe captures all the tension of this true-life rescue of over 100 hostages in Operation Thunderbolt – one of the most daring operations in history. Be captivated by 7 Days in Entebbe, available now.

 

No Ordinary Man

Watch An Ordinary Man, now available on Vudu!

 

An Ordinary Man follows a man that’s anything but. It stars Ben Kingsley as a fugitive war criminal whose constant need to live a normal life runs counter to his need remain hidden from the authorities that are hunting him. Watch it (in secret) today.

 

Rage Cage

Step into the octagon with The Cage Fighter, available now on Vudu!

 

There have been plenty of films that follow the aspiring dreams of MMA fighters, but The Cage Fighter takes an up close and personal look at the will it takes for one man to become a professional fighter, and the (choke) hold it puts on his family. No sparring here, just raw emotion and power that hits you hard in the gut (and the heart).

 

Now Available For Rent

Hopefully you're not alone when you watch The Strangers: Prey at Night. Available now on Vudu!

Why would you ever take a family vacation to a bunch of abandoned mobile homes? But then again, they do make great locations for great slasher flix. The sequel to the 2008 original, The Strangers: Prey at Night (theatrical or unrated) follows a similar plotline but keeps the creepiness fresh, the cuts deep, and the blood running. Oh, and it’ll ruin Tiffany and “I think we’re alone now” forever.

 

Lara Croft is back! Watch Tomb Raider tonight on Vudu!

 

Reboots, like taking pictures of food, are just a way of life now. So it shouldn’t be surprising that they’ve rebooted Tomb Raider only…oh wait, it’s been 17 years? Ok, I guess it’s on par. Either way, even if you’re Team Jolie forever, we highly recommend you check out Alicia Vikander’s take on Tomb Raider – we’re pretty sure you’ll be a fan.

 

The Hurricane Heist will blow you away! Available now on Vudu.

 

Hurricanes, not fun. The Hurricane Heist, lots of fun. Maybe you weren’t sure about it, but now that it’s up for rental you should check it out. Come on. It’s a bank heist. During a hurricane. #Cashtrina. Too soon?

 

Also, Indies Out(ie) For Rental

 

Family dysfunction is the function in Flower, available now on Vudu.

 

Family dynamics get weird in Flower when a teen conspires with her step-brother to expose a high school teacher’s closeted perversions.

 

The movie that tells the story of the song, watch I Can Only Imagine today on Vudu.

 

It’s time to Cowboy Shuffle over and watch I Can Only Imagine. It’s the story behind the song of the same name. So if you love the song, rent the movie that’ll make you love the song even more.

 

Rent Love, Simon today on Vudu! And if you buy it, get the first 7 chapters of the book. (Limited time offer)

Food for thought

To help inspire your creative crayon-ery, here are some astounding gnome facts even Sherlock himself hasn’t deduced:

 

The first garden gnomes were made in 19th-century Germany and were called “Gnomen-Figuren,” meaning miniature figurines. We’re still “figuren” out what’s up with the hats.

 

Actually, to that point (see what we did there?), gnomes were said to wear conical hats and to be able to move through the earth itself as easily as we walk on top of it

 

While they originated in Germany, the gnomes spread quickly to France, and then to the United Kingdom when Sir Charles Isham brought 21 gnomes from Germany to his garden. The lone surviving original gnome is insured for £1M.

 

 

In the 1990s people began borrowing gnomes from neighbors’ lawns to take on their travels, sending photos of the globetrotting gnome-ads to the original owners. Even Amélie and Travelocity got in on the fun.

 

 

With today’s internet art explosion, gnomes of all shapes and sizes are available to help spruce up your outdoor space. Or terrorize it, in the case of the uncomfortably detailed zombie gnomes. Great for Halloween, or year-round if you want to be “that” neighbor.

 

Whether you’re #TeamRedGnome or #TeamBlueGnome, make sure to enter the contest to get your gnome swag on, and check out Sherlock Gnomes — available now in up to 4K + HDR.
