Another week has went by and we are back to new movie Tuesday again. Did you enjoy any movies from the Redbox this week?
GREAT NEWS FROM LAST WEEK
Anyway, before we get to the movies for the week, there was some other great news for Redbox this week. There was a newspaper article written last Tuesday about Redbox and what the future holds. I will get you a link to the full article later, but my favorite part from the article is:
“This summer, the company plans to let customers go online to check title availability in a particular location and rent a movie on the spot for pickup at that machine later.”
This is exactly what I have been wanting and asking for the last 6 months. This will be a great addition to the Redbox service. The moment I hear about this being rolled out, I will let you know.
LAST WEEK IN MOVIES
So, this past week we rented two movies – Irish Jam and Memoirs of a Geisha.
Irish Jam is a little known film that was really quite fun to watch. If one of the blockbusters you want to see isn’t available, and you want a laugh with a pretty fun story, check it out.
I have been wanting to see Memoirs of a Geisha for a long time, but never could find it in the box. My wife was out yesterday and just happened to stop by the Redbox and she found it there. It was a great film, that lives up to all the great reviews. A very enlightening insight into a life that most of us know nothing about, and one that really doesn’t exist anymore. Gets my highest recommendation if you are looking for a good drama.
I am not too sure what all is being released in the box this week.
The Redbox website doesn’t have anything listed as of this writing, but I did receive an email from them yesterday that says “The Family Stone” and “Last Holiday” are being released.
Family Stone has quite a cast, including Claire Daines, Sarah Jessica Parker and Craig T. Nelson. And, Last Holiday is another Queen Latifah film. You probably either like her or hate her, so you can decide if this one is worth your time.
As always, there are many new codes available on the codes page, so check it out. A few new codes released by Redbox this week are”
LAST: good May 1-4
BIG: good May 7-11
CALL: good May 14-18
CHEAP: good May 21-25
Notice that these new codes are not good on the weekend. This could be a new tactic Redbox is using to get more paid rentals on the weekends. So, if any code is not working, and it is the weekend, you might want to try it again Monday-Thursday.
Well, that is all the news for this Tuesday. Be sure to keep checking for new codes, and updating the code page with those that you use. As always, thanks for you support, and keep that Redbox down the street busy!
