All summer, redbox has been bringing back great movies from the ’90s and ’00s.
Here are five fan favorites that have arrived since Locke shared his “best of the best” picks last month:
Based on the first three novels in the popular Lemony Snicket’s series!
After the tragic death of their parents, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are shuffled from guardian to guardian. The orphans stay with weirdos like herpetologist Montgomery Montgomery and grammar-wise Josephine Anwhistle, but the worst by far is Count Olaf, an evil and greedy man, who tries to steal the Baudelaire family fortune.
Starring: Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, Billy Connolly
Hey Look, It’s… Emily Browning as Violet, 7 years before scoring the lead as Babydoll in Sucker Punch!) There’s also Glee‘s Jane Lynch and Helena Bonham Carter from The King’s Speech in uncredited roles! And if you listen closely, you’ll realize that Jude Law is the voice of Lemony Snicket.

Bertram Pincus is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. When he dies–and then is miraculously revived seven minutes later–he discovers that he now has the ability to see ghosts. Some people might find this to be cool, but Pincus is severely annoyed. All of the ghosts want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy, who pesters Pincus into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow. That puts Pincus squarely in the middle of a love triangle, with, uh, “spirited” results.
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Starring: Greg Kinnear, Ricky Gervais, Téa Leoni, Jeff Hiller
Hey Look, It’s… Kristen Wiig (Paul, Bridesmaids) as Ricky Gervais’ surgeon!

Join Cody, a Rockhopper penguin, as he travels from his home in Antarctica to take part in the Big Z Memorial Surf-Off on the beach of Pen Gu Island. Meet his new friends, including surf nut Chicken Joe and the spunky lifeguard Lani. Cody believes that winning is everything until he meets The Geek, an older and much wiser retired pro-surfer, who may just show Cody that a true winner isn’t always the one who comes in first.
Genre: Family, Animated
Hey, Do You Hear That? It’s… Shia LaBeouf as the voice of Cody and The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, as the voice of The Geek!

You might know this movie better as “that one with the MINI Coopers.”
After pulling off an amazing heist from a heavily guarded palazzo in Venice, a gang of expert thieves is stunned to learn that one of their own has double-crossed them. Now the job isn’t about the payoff, it’s about payback.
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Ed Norton, Donald Sutherland, Mos Def, Jason Statham
