Some exciting things have been happening over this past week at Inside Redbox. If you haven’t been to the site for a few days, you will notice some changes…
First off, I updated the look to something a bit cleaner and easier to modify as needed. I hope you like it. But, as always, feel free to leave me any feedback on it. Which, brings me to an annoucement…
A few of the very social people among us have suggested that I add a way for everyone to discuss all things Redbox with each other – so now you can.
There is a place to discuss codes, movie reviews and chat, leave suggestions for the site, and more…

LAST WEEK IN REVIEW
This past week we watched two movies: “Walk the Line” and “The Family Stone”.
“Walk the Line” was an older release about the lives of Johnny Cash and June Carter. I hadn’t watched it because it sounded like just another boring biographical movie. I was wrong…
My wife and I both really enjoyed the film. It was well-acted by both Phoenix and Witherspoon. In fact, I think this movie may mark a turning point in the career of Reese Witherspoon – she did a fantastic job with drama. If you haven’t seen it, it has my highest recommendation.
“The Family Stone” left me with a confused feeling on how to rate it. It was not a bad movie, but it wasn’t a masterpiece either. If you are looking for some edgy comedy, then you should check it out. It was fairly well-acted and has an all-star cast worth seeing together.
THIS WEEK IN MOVIES
The releases this week are: Rumor Has It, Munich, The New World, Big Momma’s House 2, and Nanny McPhee. (In the Salt Lake City market, you will also see “The Work and the Glory 2” in the box.)
Not sure what I want to see yet out of those – but will probably rent “Nanny McPhee” for a family movie night.
If you have seen any of them, go ahead and post your review in the new movie review forum to help everyone decide what to watch.
It looks like we are seeing one of the first changes in the way codes work with Redbox only allowing many codes to be used Monday – Thursday. This isn’t affecting all codes right now, but it is affecting many of the new codes.
To discuss any irregularities you are seeing, click here to visit the new Redbox Codes Forum.
That is about it for this week. Make sure you visit often to see all of the latest Redbox news, and tell your friends, too. You aren’t trying to hog all the free dvd rentals for yourself, are you? =-)
Until next time – happy renting.
