Play Digital Movies for $5

Deal Link:
Price:
$5
Retailer:
Google Play
Google Play is having a sale on digital movies for $5. And, for once, there are actually good films in the mix! Plus, Google usually upgrades HD purchases to 4k for free as 4k versions com available.

A little more than I like to spend on digital versions without a disc as well but Google hasn't had sale alike this very often.

Thanks, got tonnes of play credit thanks to surveys. Kubo is a gorgeous movie, and definitely worth $5.

Objectively, there are quite a few good movies there. Shawshank Redemption, Troy, Hateful Eight.

Only certain studios. Only From Fox, Lionsgate, NBC Universal, or Warner Bros. Not sony on Canada or the others

Also do not buy sucker punch - it's on Netflix and sucks. But do buy Gia - it has excellent reviews

Gattaca, Ex Machina, It Comes at Night, It Follows, etc. etc. Lots of critically acclaimed and/or popular films.

ehh no real deal unless I'm missing something. they always have movies at $5 or less. The selection is just constantly rotating. A quick scan reveals some gems (Scary Movie, Shawshank, SuckerPunch, and even a few movies that don't start with S like Heathers) but nothing to call home about.

Grabbed Sherlock Holmes and Sucker Punch because those were in 4k and port to iTunes 4k for playback.

Thanks OP.

Some of these are available as Vudu disk to digital for anyone playing the moviesanywhere game.

$5 is still pretty good though.

I couldn't stand Hateful Eight, and I'm a Tarantino fan.

I might pick up Shawshank and Hellraiser.
