iTunes Movie of the Week (UK) - Hot Rod £3.99
Each week iTunes offers a cheap ‘Movie of the Week’. This is not usually something exclusive to iTunes as a quick search will usually reveal the same movie available on the Google Play store and Amazon Video for a similar price. However, as all digital movie media is invariably protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) it usually comes down to what platform you are most comfortable accessing your purchased content on. With Amazon, it requires their Fire TV or Fire Stick and for Apple, it’s the Apple TV. For me, it’s usually the Apple TV that makes the more logical choice but your mileage may vary.
This week you can pick up Hot Rod starring Adam Samberg.
Amateur stuntman Rod Kimble (ANDY SAMBERG) has a problem - his step-father Frank (IAN MCSHANE) is a jerk. Frank picks on Rod, tosses him around like a rag doll in their weekly sparring sessions, and definitely doesn't respect him, much less his stunts.
