With movie prices rising a little more every few months, this weekend it's high time to park it in front of your computer and check out three new(ish) films right off of ITunes.
An all out comedy, "This Is the End" is being hailed by critics and audiences as the funniest comedy to come along in years. Packed with stars such as Emma Watson, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Michael Cera, the film centers on the aftermath of a global apocalypse. Perfect for an evening with friends or even a break alone from your hectic week. Available for rental in HD and SD starting at $4.99.
Maybe you're in the mood for a more contemplative look at the current obsession with fame. "The Bling Ring," starring this year's most beautiful movie star Emma Watson, is sure to satisfy. Directed by Sofia Coppola, the movie centers around the inspired true story of a group of young teenagers who rob celebrity homes while they are out of town. Ms. Watson is already receiving high praise for her performance as Nicki, the expressionless beauty queen of the group. At a cool 90 minutes, the film offers insight and humor into the lives of the generation that cares more about Lindsay Lohan's escapades than anything happening globally. Available for rental in both HD and SD starting at $5.99.
Before you head to the theater to see the newest horror flick "Insidious Chapter 2,"be sure to check out the original "Insidious." Released in 2010, starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, the edge of your seat thriller/horror film focuses on a child who falls into a coma and becomes a vessel for ghosts in another dimension. Brilliantly paced and perfectly crafted, "Insidious" fulfills every expectation and more, leading us on a psychological journey oozing with anticipation of what will come next. Available for rental in both HD and SD for a limited time for only $0.99. Voted ITunes movie of the week.
