Don’t be a repli-cant, be a repli-can
Because now that you can watch Blade Runner 2049 on Vudu there’s no excuse.
The long-awaited sequel to the sci-fi, cult classic Blade Runner has earned itself a 4.3 rating on Vudu and 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it as much a fan favorite as the original. And maybe, just maybe, it finally answers the question of whether Deckard is a human or replicant – but you’ll have to watch to find out.
The movie takes place 30 years after the first, and you can make sure you can enjoy this movie 30 years from now too by getting it in 4K + HDR (HDR10 and Dolby Vision) It’s the same price as HDX, so why not? That means, even if Santa didn’t drop a 4K TV down your chimney, you can get the 4K UHD version now and watch in HDX until you get your 4K upgrade.
The hardest working man in kung-fu
He’s a foreigner, but he’s no stranger to action. In The Foreigner, Jackie Chan is a hot-blooded headknocker who’s as cold as ice, and he’ll fight for you. Yes, the legend himself, Jackie Chan, is back from his side job of teaching the Lego Ninjago squad and we’re excited to report that he’s in top form.
This movie is also a peek at the more serious side of Chan. Seeing Chan take on action in a less campy form (and against a former 007 nonetheless) is refreshing and works really well. And for those of you wondering, even at 63, he’s still taking on his own stunts – and is even a Guinness Book of World Records holder for the most stunts performed by a living actor.
The jury is in – watch marshall
Marshall is a biographical film on Thurgood Marshall. But rather than trying to do too much by covering his whole life, the movie choses to focus on a single case during his time as counsel for the NAACP. This makes for a great courtroom drama that gives us a much more interesting movie about the man who would later become the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.
And if Thurgood Marshall looks familiar, that’s probably because he’s not just a superhero in the courtroom, but also in Wakanda, the mythical kingdom of the Black Panther. So look for Chadwick Boseman on the big screen in February 2018 (and don’t forget to pre-order on Vudu).
If “IT” wasn’t enough
The Creeper is back in Jeepers Creepers 3, but this time he better be ready for a fight. The town is finally ready to join up to try and kill the demon once and for all – but can they do it? The Creeper eats people and has done so for thousands of years, but the townsfolk have machine guns, so, in our mind, it’s a toss-up. Put in your vote and watch today.
Nightworld takes place in Bulgaria. Which is pretty much all you need to know since everything is always creepier when it takes place in Bulgaria. It has got all the horror elements: an old apartment with a past shrouded in mystery, a creepy former caretaker (Robert Englund aka Freddy Kruger), and a secret room shielded by two giant doors with ominous carvings – oh and Bulgaria.
New rentals – get 30 days to start
Flatliners is anything but flat. With a solid 3.6 rating by the Vudu community, this remake of the 1990s version brings us a whole new slew of med students playing God. And it’s now available for rent.
Man of the moment, Idris Elba, is back in the drama/romance, The Mountain Between Us. Following a plane crash in the remote Idaho wilderness, Elba and Kate Winslet rely on each other to survive. Based on a 2011 novel by Charles Martin.
Finally, from the brilliantly twisted mind of Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, Dogtooth) comes Killing of a Sacred Deer. It’s a dark thriller that’s absurd and insane, yet totally believable. It’s as bold as his previous movies and not to be missed for fans of Lanthimos’ work.
It’s The End of the World, but at least it’s free
Christmas is over, and what better way to close out 2017 than with some free movies in our End of the World Collection.
First, there’s the classic dystopian action movie, The Running Man – which just so happens to take place in 2017. (The future is now!) While society hasn’t degraded to that point yet (thankfully), you can see what it’d be like if it did for free with Movies On Us.
You can also check out cult classic, Tank Girl. It’s got all the angst of the 90s wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic action movie – complete with a 90s angst driven soundtrack (we’re looking for our flannel and Docs as we speak). Sure Baby Driver, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Atomic Blonde have great soundtracks, but Tank Girl has Bjork, Devo, Hole, Ice-T, Veruca Salt, and more!
