Plus, new to rent and free funny females
The piece de resistance
Is it the missing piece? The final piece? We’re not sure, but either way, we’re not here to play games – just watch them. Jigsaw is the eighth installment of the long-running Saw franchise and this one cuts deep. Jigsaw’s been dead for 10 years, but it seems like he’s still killing. Whaaaa? Freaky, right? Try not to hide behind a pillow as you watch revenge get served up cold – and by cold we mean bloody.
In Bullet Head, three thieves are forced to hide out in an abandoned warehouse while the heat dies down – only to find they’re not the only ones squatting there. Turns out another squatter with four legs is less than keen to share his digs. It’s men vs. canine killing machine – who will survive? Fun fact: The film looks like it could be Anywhere, USA, but it was actually filmed in Bulgaria (aaaand now the headline makes sense).
War, what is it good for?
There’s the heroism of war that we see in movies like Lone Survivor, Act of Valor, and Black Hawk Down. But there’s also the other side that we don’t see. The struggle to return to normalcy and civilian life. Thank You for Your Service is an adaptation of David Finkel’s non-fiction book of the same name, and a tough but engrossing look at those who come home from war, but still carry a piece of it with them.
New to rent
Check out these movies that just became available for rent.
IT comes in many forms, but this time, IT comes in rental form. So get penny-wise with Pennywise and rent it/IT.
Or be extra like the Millennials and get your horror from social media with Friend Request. Watch as a college student’s friends get killed off one by one after she unfriends a demon. (We’d unfriend a demon too. Ain’t nobody got time for that.)
You can also check out the more serious side of Jackie Chan in The Foreigner (don’t worry, he still does all his own stunts…at 63), watch the courtroom drama unfold in the true story of (eventual Supreme Court Justice) Thurgood Marshall’s early cases in Marshall, or get 20% cooler by renting My Little Pony: The Movie (make it the movie night mane event, bro).
Women Who Make Us Laugh, for free
Free is no laughing matter, but the female leads of these comedies are. Although, free does make everything more enjoyable. So maybe free is a laughing matter.
Watch Beauty Shop (starring the original Queen, Queen Latifah), Mystic Pizza (the pizza isn’t mystic, the town and the girls are), Young Adult with Charlize Theron (what if she grows up to be Atomic Blonde), Sundance Film Festival winning dark comedy Afternoon Delight (a mom tries to help a stripper, but the stripper helps her…aww), and more for FREE with Movies On Us.
