Rent Films to Watch on DVD & Blu-ray

Films delivered to you

The arrival of the worldwide web has no doubt revolutionised how things work. Before, folks would go to their local DVD film rentals shop but now, more and more TV buffs and movie lovers are turning to film rental online services every day.

Unlike online film rentals, we post your movies to you, you send them back to us when you’re done then we’ll post another title from your list.

So, why have so many customers opted for film rentals online over local, bricks-and-mortar video shops?

A Low Monthly Set Fee

When you plump for DVD film rentals, you’ll pay a low, set fee every month. When you belong to a local video shop, you can never be sure how many movies you’ll rent in a month, not to mention forgetting to return one and pay a late charge. Your entertainment budget will constantly be in flux.

Save Money with Film Rental by Post

Unlike driving to the DVD shop to pick up or a return a movie, film rental services will cover the shipping costs for you, both ways. What’s more, you’ll save money on late fees, since you never have to pay them. Even better, especially for movie enthusiasts who watch gazillions of DVDs a month, the cost per film will be significantly lower than renting at the shop.

Save Time

Using a bricks-and-mortar film shops for your movie and TV series rentals requires no small expenditure of time. Not only do you have to drive (or fight) your way through traffic all the way to the shop, you then have to peruse through all the movies, title-by-title until you find the film you were looking for. Rent a film online, and you’ll only have to build your queue. Finding your desired title is a piece of cake, thanks to being able to type them into the website’s search engine.

Gleason Review

A heart wrenching documentary about passion, love and the pursuit of happiness in the most dire of circumstances – Gleason tells, and continues to tell the story of Steve Gleason and his battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as ALS. But most of all, Gleason is a story about celebrating life and getting the most out of it, even when one thinks chances are not in one’s favor. ... Read full review »

Frankenstein: Day of the Beast Online DVD Rental

Spoilers follow ...

This is a very interesting rearrangement of the Frankenstein story which manages to create something refreshingly new from the old myth. We begin with Felix (Frank Warpeha) bringing home his new wife, Safi (Ruth Terefe) to his isolated home in the middle of the woods, which he shares with his sister Agatha (Ticia Martyr) and blind father (Bruce Spielbauer). Secreted nearby, The Monster (Tim Krueger) seems set to learn English from French Safi’s English lessons – but things never get that far, and he isn’t much ... see more interested anyway. He is after only one thing, and everyone else he meets, he kills. He has a predilection for pulling out people’s intestines. Victor Frankenstein (Adam Stephenson) and his new wife Elizabeth (Michelle Shields) are being guarded by seven heavily armed men. Where and when this happens in regard to earlier events is not clear. The creature, whose creation is told briefly in flashback, is somewhere out in the surrounding woods. Restructuring the story into what is really a series of ‘boo!’ moments has its merits, with the creature hunting the men who are, in turn, hunting the creature. Pretty soon, these guards are fighting amongst themselves anyway, echoing the behaviour of Robert Walton’s crew in the novel. There’s a new development here: the Monster can regenerate himself. He literally cannot die. Vaguely resembling a bulkier, pulpier version of the fiend seen in Toho’s ‘Frankenstein Conquers the World (1965)’, he is something more than human. One scene, which is (I imagine) unintentionally enduring, is when its severed hand assumes a life of its own for a scene. The idea was never going to succeed visually on such a small budget! {SPOILER} “I opened the door to something unspeakable,” admits Frankenstein. He certainly suffers in this story, but is hard to sympathise with – The Monster too has not a modicum of pathos. That is saved for poor Elizabeth, with whom The Monster wishes to mate. In a series of twists at the end, it seems such a thing is possible. Shields is excellent throughout, emerging as the central character. I really enjoyed this. The locations are excellent – all long shadows, crispy snow and skeletal trees. What it might lack in polish is made up for in the respect shown for the story, and a cast and crew who invest in it a genuine sincerity. A genuinely fine independent adaption.
