More of the nominated movies are becoming available online. However, be sure to compare prices to save yourself some money.
I signed up for Amazon Prime, not for free delivery, but for the Amazon Prime movies. Since I review the Academy Award nominated movies every year for sexism, ageism, and violence, I thought it would be helpful. However, Amazon Prime is a huge disappointment. Amazon only produces a few movies a year and most of the new movies it offers cost money, often $19.99.
When I went to my local supermarket today, I found “King Richard” for $1.99 at the Redbox kiosk. A good deal. It’s currently $5.99 on Comcast and Amazon Prime. It’s dropped in price, previously being $19.99.
I bought the animated movie “Luca” at Redbox for $2. I couldn’t remember what it was about, but I didn’t want to buy “Cruella.” It’s the 101 Dalmatians origin story centered around the film's villain. “Luca” is $19.99 to buy on Amazon Prime and Comcast.
Like I did last year, I signed up for Netflix temporarily. All its movies are free. I’ve watched “The Power of the Dog,” “Don’t Look Up,” and “Tick … Tick BOOM!” I see Netflix has “The Hand of God” so I’ll watch it soon. I’ll also see the shorts “ Nightmare Alley,” “Robin Robin,” and “Lead Me Home.”
Right now “Parallel Mothers,” “Belfast,” and “Dune” are $19.99 to buy on Amazon Prime and Comcast. Hopefully, they’ll drop in price or I can find them cheaper elsewhere.
I may need to sign up temporarily for Hulu to watch on “Summer of Soul,” “Flee,” and “Four Good Days.” Hulu has a 30-day free trial.
Like last year, I’m not too interested in going to the theater to watch a movie during the pandemic.
Best wishes with your movie watching. I’m glad I started early this year watching the nominated movies. It’s a big job to watch 30 to 40 movies in a few weeks.
