Movies Anywhere

An app and website called Movies Anywhere has officially launched, which allows users to bring together their digital movie collections. So far, five Hollywood giants (Walt Disney Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Entertainment) and four digital retailers (Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu) are taking part. And the best part? It’s free to use.

Those who are among the dwindling number of people who still prefer physical media, myself included, won’t have much use for such a service (but even we can use those digital copy codes that come with physical copies to build a little back-up collection). But for the rest of you, continue below for full details including how you can score five free digital movies.

Read Adam Frazier’s review of this film from May here.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the X-Men movie I’ve dreamed of since my youth, back in the day when I mowed lawns during the dog days of summer to save up enough money to buy the latest X-comics off the shaky wire racks at my neighborhood 7-11. Those were the days when the comics were written by the great Chris Claremont and drawn by his gifted artistic equal Jim Lee and Future Past is the closest we’ve come yet to having a motion picture that brings those bold emotions, visuals, and outrageous “only in the funny books” style of four-color storytelling to explosive life.

As the late, great Mickey Newbury once sung, the future’s not what it used to be. The world has long been ravaged by a war between an alliance of mutants and sympathetic humans and the relentless robotic mutant hunters the Sentinels. Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his X-Men are now the last remnants of the resistance and every day their numbers get lower. Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and her ability to project a person’s consciousness back in time has helped give them a slim advantage in the ongoing battle and that power must now be used to send someone back to the point in history when the war became unavoidable: the assassination of Sentinel creator Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) at the hands of Xavier’s former friend and surrogate sister Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) in 1973.

Skull-Face Island Banner

Last Time on Skull-Face Island: Faithful robotic butler Mar-10 took Adam on a magical, mysterious journey to Austin, TX, to fulfill his destiny by visiting the South by Southwest Film Festival. David, worried that he may have inadvertently killed Adam using a voodoo doll, is searching the island for his lost companion. During all of this, Tim was drunk and hallucinating after drinking two-too-many Skull-Face Island Iced Teas…

Today’s Episode: We find Adam safe and sound in Austin, TX, where he is attending movies at SXSW. Mar-10 left to take care of some robot business, but gave Adam a special two-way radio to communicate with Tim (who has become a raging alcoholic) and report his moviegoing experiences.

We join Adam now as he contacts Tim with mini-reviews of Adam Wingard‘s You’re Next and Josh Johnson‘s VHS documentary, Rewind This! We’ll also check-in on David’s Adventure: The Mystery of the Missing Adam

7 Bethesda Video Game Soundtracks Now Available On iTunes

Skyrim Giant & Mammoths Image

The open-world RPG video games made by Bethesda Softworks are some of the very best gaming experiences you’ll ever have. Countless hours will disappear as you wander these wonderful and stunningly large virtual worlds…sometimes without even actually accomplishing any of the game’s objectives.

One of the many great elements of Bethesda’s games is their excellent musical scores. It’s not easy to come up with music so good that you can hear it over and over and over as you play one of these games for hundreds of hours and never get sick of it, but they’ve accomplished just that multiple times in the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises.

If you’re anything like myself (perhaps putting us on another level of geekdom), you’ve often wished you could apply these same musical scores to your own life, effectively creating your own (decidedly more boring) RPG. Now, thanks to the release of a collection of Bethesda game soundtracks on iTunes, we can do just that!

Continue below for a full list of the soundtracks released complete with links, who composed the score, and how much it will cost you.
