“No Time to Die”, “Violet”, “Old Henry” and more
Sometimes our true identity is a mystery and that is not at all the character that we put in the world. In this week’s new VOD films, Justine Bateman makes her directorial debut with Purple, a movie in which a woman named Violet (Olivia Munn) loses herself and her aspirations due to the negative, prickly voice in her head and must learn to free herself from it. And then there is old henri, a western about a widowed farmer (Tim Blake Nelson) who is just trying to raise his son peacefully, away from cowboys and violence and whatever seems to come with life during the westward expansion, but when the law shows up at his house looking for a fugitive, Henry’s past comes to light and we learn that he is not who he claims to be.
And of course, this week marks the return of everyone’s favorite spy, James Bond. Daniel Craig is reprising his role as Bond for the fifth and final time in No time to die, which is now available on VOD. This Bond episode also features a star cast starring Rami Malek, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Christoph Waltz and Ana de Armas. All James wants to do is retreat peacefully to Jamaica, but is brought back to the service when a friend begs him to help him locate a kidnapped scientist. It’s a satisfying farewell for Craig, whose trajectory as Bond was recounted in the big documentary. Being James Bond, which would serve as an excellent companion to this film.
These are just a few of the titles you can watch on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, YouTube, and through your cable service this week. Find out which movies are available to buy or rent on demand now!
that of Justine Bateman Purple is a movie with a message. Bateman wrote and directed the film which stars Olivia Munn as a film director who is overwhelmed by the voice (a literal voice, which belongs to Justin Theroux) in her head mocking her for doing poor choices and constantly belittles her. Violet decides to do something about “The Voice” and begins to make decisions based on the opposite of what her inner voice tells her to do. The film examines what happens when you try to break free from your inner critic, which can be your worst enemy.
