All Your Digital Movies In One Place
Aaaah! I’m so excited that I now have a home for all my digital movies in one place!
We are huge into streaming T.V. and movies in our household because it’s so much more convenient than finding a disc, putting it in, skipping through all the pre-movie stuff (I never watch that stuff, even though I know some love it), and worrying about another remote to deal with.
With the new Movies Anywhere I can save all my purchased movies in one place. Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros are all on board with Movies Anywhere!
Because I can, as the name says, access my movies from all these different studios in one place, anywhere I am. I can stream on my phone, I can cast to my T.V. from my computer or smartphone, or I can even utilize my Roku, Amazon Fire, or Chromecast as well since it syncs will all the devices.
Halloween With Movies Anywhere
I have always been a scary movie kinda gal and love to find movies with fun new twists and turns (not too into the gory stuff anymore, I think having kids changes that in you). Recently my husband and I decided to do a little Halloween style movie night in and chose The Visit (M. Night Shyamalan) as our Halloween movie.
I loaded the movie by entering a code into my account on my computer, but it was so easy to then grab the movie and stream via my Fire TV in order to watch this movie on a bit bigger of a screen.
With plenty of twists and turns, we definitely made the right choice of movie to give us a little scare over the weekend! My husband was even a good sport for our little get together, and dressed up in the spirit of the movie. He wore a dress and wig as if he were the grandmother in the movie. 😀
We kept the party pretty casual, costumes were optional, and I had a few Halloween-esque treats to share with guests. While I didn’t go balls to the walls and theme it all out, I did offer some themed drinks and eats that were at least in the right genre. 😉
My Bloody Shirley drink was a hit. With a bit of grenadine in medicine droppers, you can add your own bit of ‘blood’ to your drink. Alcohol or non-alcoholic, either way, these were fun to make and drink!
Caramel Apple Salad — this recipe is always a hit and I highly recommend trying it…more than once. 🙂 You may find that you make this and theme it out for every holiday, just so you can have it again, and again, and again. You can find the recipe HERE.
All in all, the movie night was a success. We had a great time, good food, and it was so easy to stream a new movie right from my Movies Anywhere account. This is truly an awesome program, and my movie collection no longer has to sit and collect dust in a bin somewhere – I can just hop online and find what I want at any time!
