Amazon Offering $0.99 Video Rentals This Weekend

Amazon is offering $0.99 rentals on a bunch of movies this weekend–180 of them to be exact.

In addition, some of the $0.99 rentals are available for purchase at $6.99.  You have 30 days to start the rental and then anywhere from 48 hours – 7 days to watch, depending on the video.

The rentals include a bunch of my favorites.

Blazing Saddles

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Once Mel Brooks’ lunatic film, many call his best, gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous.”

Pan’s Labyrinth

“Amidst a civil war, armed with only her imagination, young Ofelia discovers a mysterious labyrinth and meets a faun who sets her on a path to saving herself and her ailing mother.”

Miss Congeniality

“International screen sensation Sandra Bullock stars as an FBI agent who goes undercover as a beauty contestant to capture a terrorist in this hilarious action-comedy.”


“Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen team up to beat the odds in a film that Rolling Stone calls “achingly hilarious and heartfelt.” Diagnosed with spinal cancer, 27 year old Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) navigates the road to recovery with the sometimes overbearing support of his crude best friend (Rogen), his smothering mother (Angelica Huston) and an inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick). Inspired by a true story of writer Will Reiser, 50/50 is an honest yet hysterically funny account of a young man’s journey toward healing.”

There are also a bunch of Disney/teen movies on the list too–not the “classics,” but movie-length versions of Disney TV shows.

As a separate note, if you are interested in watching Blazing Saddles this weekend, a lot of theaters are showing it in honor of Gene Wilder. 

Next week, the Alamo Drafthouse in the DC Area, in addition to other Drafthouses, is also showing the film.

Please note, if you purchase anything through my Amazon links, I may receive affiliate credit for your purchase.  As always, I appreciate your support.
