    Erika, did you bother to watch American Breakdown? Have you seen the 135 .5 star reviews for it on your own website? It’s apparent that you don’t care that you are duping your customers. Your promotion of this movie is a deplorable SCAM! NEVER will I rent from Redbox again!

    Hi there Brad –

    This post is just a listing of the new movies at redbox & a short description of their plots — we do a post like this once a week. Any “review” we write on this site of a movie currently in theaters or on DVD has “Review” in the title of the post and an associated star rating at the top. But on that note, for every movie I review that I don’t like, people using post and yell at me saying that it’s the best movie ever… and for every movie I like, people will write and say it sucks. Lesson learned: usually people only write in when they disagree. And few people agree on what makes for an enjoyable movie.

    But once again, this post was meant to be a rundown of new movies at redbox and there is no review element nor any star ratings given to any of the films. We’re just letting people know what’s new and they can make up their own minds. In no way was I “promoting” American Breakdown.
