From Paul Blart to Shutter Island—has America’s collective taste in film really improved in just a year’s time? Shutter Island did have an advantage coming out earlier in the year, but are you surprised that bigger blockbuster Toy Story 3 and others didn’t make the overall top five? How did your Redboxing this year compare to the general public’s?

    Last year, I guessed that this year’s top rental would be a film from one of the non Big 3. I was right. At least it’s a good movie this time.

    –are you surprised that bigger blockbuster Toy Story 3 and others didn’t make the overall top five?

    Given the nature of the title, it probably was among the most *purchased* DVDs compared to rented.

    Toy Story 3 most people bought since their kids would want to watch it over and over.

    Shutter Island was the best movie of this past year. L DeCaprio is an awesome actor. He deffinately clenched that one.

    I rented Shutter Island. After about 15 minutes I had to turn off the TV and return the DVD. The movie was sooooooooooo boring.
