What’s New on VOD: VUDU July 2017
We take a look at VUDU’s freebie and purchase options for July 2017.
VUDU tends to keep it’s new rental/own releases close to the vest, disseminating their newest blockbusters a week or so in advance on their blog. As such, I will focus primarily on their Movies on Us section, which will cover the entire month’s offerings.
As always, keep in mind VUDU thrives on getting you to own movies, so if there is a movie coming to theaters that you want to see, you can bet that VUDU is offering a pre-order the movie/get a movie ticket deal for it. Just check the website the week said movie is about to release.
Looking down the list, there’s not too much to get excited about. There aren’t any new selections this week for paid rentals, just four newish movies in the “Own Only” category which means you have to pay full price. I can’t in good conscience recommend any of those. I can’t believe The Boss Baby is actually out of theaters, seeing as it has made a bazillion dollars this year! Also, fuck the Smurfs.
So, that leaves us with the “Movies On Us” section to draw from, and only one movie in particular struck my fancy:
Much Ado About Nothing
Last month I recommended Keanu twice: once for John Wick Chapter 2, and again for Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. I’m keeping the dream alive, as Keanu is in this Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of Shakespeare’s rom-com. Branagh might as well be the reincarnation of the Bard, so you can rest assured this movie is of impeccable quality.
They just don’t make gloriously overblown trailer narration like that anymore!
