With its great character writing, excellent blend of action and comedy elements, and spot-on performance by Ryan Reynolds as the titular character, Deadpool re-wrote the book on superhero movies and proved that R-rated comic book film can be wildly successful. Deadpool 2 is thankfully coming to bring us more action-comedy goodness, but in the meantime you can you can enjoy the first one in glorious 4K for $19 from Amazon and save $11.
Blade Runner ($10)
The highly anticipated Blade Runner 2049 has just hit theaters to near-universal critical acclaim. If you haven’t seen Ridley Scott’s 1982 original that started it all, however (or if you haven’t yet seen it in high-definition), then this cult classic deserves a spot in your collection. Blade Runner: The Final Cut is Scott’s official director’s cut that features stunning digitally remastered HD visuals, and the Blu-Ray version of this legendary sci-fi film can be yours for just $10 from Amazon.
Ex Machina ($8)
Director Alex Garland’s Ex Machina was released to little fanfare but quickly became a sleeper hit with sci-fi fans and movie critics alike. This fascinating film explores themes like intelligence, freedom, love, and humanity, with a surprise ending that brings it all together. Although it may not be as reliant on stunning visuals as Blade Runner, Ex Machina is still a gorgeous ride that deserves the HD treatment, and the Blu-Ray is now available for just $8 on Amazon after a discount of $7.
Hacksaw Ridge ($15)
Hacksaw Ridge is Mel Gibson’s latest directorial project and tells the story of combat medic and pacifist Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who saved the lives of 75 soldiers during the grisly Battle of Okinawa. This critically acclaimed film won a slew of awards and has been hailed as one of the best World War II movies since Saving Private Ryan, and you can score the Blu-Ray of Hacksaw Ridge (which also includes the DVD and Digital HD versions) for $15 on Amazon after a 40-percent discount.
The conclusion to the rebooted Planet of the Apes series, War For the Planet of the Apes, is the final chapter in the story of Caesar (Andy Serkis) as he tries to lead his band of primates to a new homeland. The story, pitting the Colonel (Woody Harrelson) and his rogue military group against Caesar’s apes, is just as engaging as the stunning cinematography and marks a fitting end to this epic trilogy. War For the Planet of the Apes is slated for home media release on October 24, but you can now pre-order the Blu-Ray from Amazon for $20 and save 15 bucks off of its retail price.

The first movie is available on standard Blu-Ray for just $10, or 50 percent off, or you can grab the 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray for $15. John Wick Chapter 2 is also on sale for a 50-percent discount, bringing the Blu-Ray down to $15.
