Movie Frenzy 2021
Rent some of the past year's big movies for pocket change.
Where would we be without movies over the past 12 months? Even when cinemas were closed for a hefty portion of 2020, we all still sought out the joy and escapism of watching a flick — because when you're in lockdown, quarantining or isolating at home, or just spending more time indoors in general, it's particularly cathartic.
Still keen to queue up a big heap of movies, and a hefty dose of couch time? Enter Movie Frenzy, the returning week-long online film rental sale. Until Thursday, March 11, it's serving up a sizeable lineup of popular flicks from the past year, all from $2.99 per movie.
On the lineup: Tenet's mind-bending action, The King of Staten Island's blend of comedy and reflection, and the joyous laughs of Bill & Ted Face the Music. You can also opt for the murder-mystery thrills of Knives Out, check out a new version of a childhood favourite thanks to The Secret Garden, dive into a fight between Aussie sheep-farmer brothers in Rams and see Russell Crowe act as the title demands in Unhinged.
Nicolas Cage's OTT latest, Jiu Jitsu, is also on the list, as are Bloodshot, Dirt Music, Honest Thief, After We Collided, The Outpost, Sonic the Hedgehog, The High Note and Trolls World Tour — and while some are more worth your attention than others, we'll let you do the choosing.
You can nab the cheap flicks via your digital rental platform of choice, including Apple TV, Fetch, Google Play, the Microsoft Store, the Playstation Store, Amazon Prime Video, Telstra TV Box Office and YouTube Movies — although just what's available, and the price, will vary depending on the service. And you won't need a subscription, unless you decide to join in the fun via the Foxtel Store.
