    What is this week's $0.99 rental? How do you figure out which one it is?

    This "week" it is a movie called The Ghost and the Darkness. I've heard its a kinda crap movie, so I didn't/don't plan on renting it, but feel free to tell us how it is :) Also, you'll normally notice the movie at the top of the movies page in one of the rotating ads. It is also normally in this very forum, so look around first and you'll definitely find it.

    I think he's asking for it to be prominently displayed in Apple TV as the .99c rental of the week.

    Apple's interface LOOKS cool for the Apple TV, but I have to agree that it's difficult to find what you're looking for (new releases, .99c rentals, etc.).


    As for Ghost in the Darkness, I rented it and I thought it was pretty good. Definately worth $1, anyway.

    Pretty much can't go wrong with much for a buck.

    i saw the movie on tv. not too bad but also not worth much more than $1. if you have absolutely nothing to do it's good entertainment. if you can, go to the gym and work out instead......

    I decided against it :)

    hopefully it's a better movie this week.

    btw, i did see that the hd version of the movie wasn't discounted. it was still $3.99

    get it quickly

    order this before it is no longer .99. It is worth watching. not a classic but fun action movie with val kilmer and michael douglas. They are good enough actors to warrant spending .99

    get it now. you have 30 days to watch it.

    I rented HD of michael clayton. i don't know what all the hub bub was all about. it was an average movie. i can't believe the woman got an oscar for her role. She only had small parts in it and her scenes were not anything great.

    Must have been a slow movie year. I agree with the so called Oscar Winning performance. She had about 4 minutes of total movie time, but apparently this isn't unheard of.

    I think this week's selection is "Changing Lanes", which is a decent drama/action flick about how something so simple can quickly get out of hand.

    I won't be renting it though, I own the DVD.

    Hadn't seen it. Looks interesting enough. Will add it. Still haven't watched The Hours. 20 days or so remaining. But with an 11 week old, watching whole movies is something you really have to plan.

    Hey, now I have the same question as the OP. How DO you tell what the .99c movie is?
