We love film and we recommend you go out to the theatre when you can.
When you want a simple night at home there are many excellent films available for rental through Netflix.
There is also Pay per View through your cable company, Apple and Amazon.
Here are some recent films we enjoyed.
The purpose of this page is mainly to capture special films or films that don’t fit in our genre pages but there is some overlap. Each of our genre pages and platform pages also addresses film.
To find films in theatres, you can start with an app like Fandango to see what is playing nearby – then check it on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes to see ratings before buying a ticket, or both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes (Filtered for Certified Fresh) have what’s playing now lists. Personally I find Rotten Tomatoes search engine lacking – the quickest search is on Google: name of film, rotten tomatoes.
