Valentine’s day love advice from redbox
DVD RENTALS FOR
VALENTINE’S DAY USED
TO BE “PHONING IT IN.”
Not anymore, Cassanova. Or, er, Cassanovess. With redbox itâ€™s the hottest way to show you care. (That comes straight from redbox, so you can count on the love advice you find here being pretty reliable.)
Saw the Golden Globes? Good, then youâ€™re familiar with this weekâ€™s first movie: The Departed. A heavy-hittingÂ— and heavily-nominatedÂ— all star cast brings this Boston mafia drama to life in a way only Martin Scorcese could envision it. Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson are just few of the huge names in the amazing ensemble. Oh, and Mark Wahlberg? Crazy good.
Also new this week is Zoom: Academy for Superheroes. Tim Allen, Chevy Chase and Courteney Cox star in this movie about an aging superhero who gets put in charge of whipping a group of kids into shape to become the superheroes of tomorrow. Is there an academy for super-villiains? Good question. Redbox will look into that. (Insert redbox rubbing redbox’ hands together and giggling menacingly.)
Last but not least this week is The 13th Child. This murder mystery has people being killed off by someone or something using superhuman strength. A clever DA Assistant, played by Cliff Robertson, is sent to investigate. Is this just a way to commit the perfect murder or will the legend of the Jersey Devil prove to be true? Who’s behind this murder mystery? Shhhhh, redbox will never tell. You’ll need to watch it yourself to find out.
Those new releases are all available online. So are these hot titles from last week.
Clint Eastwood tells the story of the American soldiers made famous in the flag-raising photograph taken at Iwo Jima. Ryan Phillipe and Jesse Bradford star as two of the men who became the face of a national campaign to raise support and sell bonds for the World War II effort.
Also, watch out for that pesky Iâ€™m-Going-Blind-With-Rage bug that seems to be going around in The Grudge 2. Amber Tamblyn and Sarah Michelle Gellar star in this sequel to the sci-fi hit about an inexplicable condition that makes its victims blow their lids.
Finally, donâ€™t forget about Cinderella III: A Twist In Time for the young movie lovers out there. Jennifer Hale is the voice of Cinderella, and Susan Blakeslee is the stepmother, whoâ€™s somehow picked up enough magic here and there to reverse all the spells cast by the fairy godmother.
Until next week, have a Valentineâ€™s Day filled with the kind of lasting love only Hollywood can deliver. You know what redbox means.
