Every other week or so we’ll be asking a Redbox fan the same five questions about movies. “What’s this all about,” you say? Well, let’s let our first interviewee, Jeff K., show us all how it’s done:
1. What’s the one movie you couldn’t live without?
Wow…this is a tough question as I have several favorites. I suppose if I had to choose one, it would be The Princess Bride. It may not be my overall favorite movie, but it has a little bit of everything in it.
2. What movie character you would love to hang out with?
Another tough question. There are so many cool characters out there. Do I go with Han Solo, Rhett Butler, or Jack Sparrow? One thing is for sure, they are all good at heart, but have that bit (OK maybe more than a bit) of scoundrel in them. That said, I also like a nice strong and sexy heroine like Ripley, Alice, Jill Valentine, or Lara Croft. I don’t think I can decide, but someone from one of those two categories.
3. Share a time that Redbox made your day a little better.
I love the quick and easy DVD rentals and the trivia contests on the blog, but I thought I would pick something a little unusual. A few months back I entered the “Hug your Redbox” contest and was chosen for the final cut and was awarded with a nifty Redbox t-shirt. I didn’t expect to win the contest, but to get an unexpected runner-up prize was pretty cool.
4. Besides a Redbox movie, what makes movie night perfect for you?
I generally reserve popcorn for the actual theater as it’s just never the same at home, no matter how fancy the microwave popcorn manufacturers get. So I like to either get some takeout sandwiches and chips or some Chinese and snuggle up on the couch with my wife while we eat and watch. Sometimes we get fancy and do this in the hot tub, but the TV isn’t that great and food in a hot tub can get a little messy.
5. “You had me at ‘hello,’” “I’m the king of the world,” “I see dead people”…what’s your favorite movie line? Ever used it?
“I drink your milkshake.” – Daniel Plainview, There Will Be Blood. This line can apply to so many things, so yes, I’ve used it and slight variations of it many times.
We love your answers, Jeff! Thanks for chatting with us!
