Want to see interesting movies for cheap? I have a solution. A Bryan Movie Hack, if you will.
You will? Great.
Recently, I’ve been catching movies that I might not have hunted out after missing them in theatres. It’s because of the iTunes ‘Movie of the Week’.
Each week, iTunes features a 99 cent, 30-day rental. You have 30 days to keep in in your queue, but only 24 hours when you activate it. It’s perfect, as the rental doesn’t break the bank, allows for viewing flexibility, and provides an eclectic selection from week to week.
The titles have been consistently interesting. I’ve enjoyed everything from ‘Mr. Holmes’, ‘Z for Zachariah’, and ‘The Walk’ to ‘Bone Tomahawk’ and ‘Attack the Block’. This week’s is ‘American Ultra’, which I plan to watch this weekend.
As much as I live to go to the theatre, I frequently miss some of the smaller gems. Thankfully, iTunes uses this feature to get these movies in front of us. (They also get me to transact on a regular basis, but that’s a whole different story.)
You can also purchase a ton of great movies for decent prices, but for the ‘Movie of the Week’ feature, you can take a chance on a smaller film for cheap.
Keep on Watchin’!
