What you need to know

- As a bonus, you'll get a free copy of Sonic Mania for buying one of the featured movies.
- The sale is live now and runs through June 15.
A lot of us are stuck inside right now, which might mean you're quickly running through your backlog of movies. Luckily, Microsoft is running a pretty big sale on a bunch of movies that are either based on games, or movies that became games later. In total, you can save up to 40 percent off of the usual price of many of the movies. Not too shabby.
As a little bonus, Microsoft is also throwing in a free copy of the game Sonic Mania if you buy any of the featured movies as part of the sale. Given there are movies up for grabs for as little as $3, that's a pretty good deal. Sonic Mania is largely lauded as an excellent entry in the long-running franchise, offering remixes of levels from old games and some new ones.
There's quite a bit of variety with all of the movies on sale. There's everything from newer titles like Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog, to classics like Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil. Yeah, some of them are extremely campy, but it's not a bad way to pick up Sonic Mania, which usually runs $20.

Review: HP's Spectre x360 15 is gorgeous, but battery life disappoints
The HP Spectre x360 15 is a unique laptop, not only in its design, but because it's the only recent convertible available in this size. The 2020 model sweetens the deal even more with a vibrant, nearly borderless display and snappy performance. Is it worth the high price, though? Let's take a look.
