What to Rent This Weekend

by | Mar 23rd, 2012 | 9:52AM | Filed under: Interviews, Redbox Focus

Two weeks ago we introduced What to Rent This Weekend, a Redblog feature where we ask Redbox employees to suggest a movie our customers can check out after the work week is through. The staff pick from earlier this month was Courageous. What will it be this time around? Ooh, the anticipation!

Name: Amy Hill

Redbox Role: Redbox Customer Care—I support Redbox customers through online chat and emails

Amy’s Pick: In Time, starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy

This movie gives new meaning to the phrase “I didn’t get it done in time,” because in this movie’s world, that could mean your life!

In Time depicts just how short life truly is, and how we, as humans, take for granted each second we are given. Set in a futuristic world where society does not use money as currency anymore—but rather actual time—the rich are afforded the luxury to live forever. Yet, the poor struggle to keep their time going second by second. Sounds pretty familiar, huh? I was incredibly moved, sometimes to tears (get the tissue box ready, ladies!), to see how each character related to their ‘time’ and how they used their ‘time.’ Even the men will enjoy this mind-twister for a date-night flick! I would also recommend families with older children rent this one for a family movie night (it’s rated PG-13). We all can take a page from this movie to reinvest in the short time we each have to spend with each other.

Thanks for the tip, Amy!

Did she convince you?

Reserve a copy of In Time on DVD or Blu-ray™!

    I’ve been thinking about renting this movie for a while, but wasn’t sure it would be good. I think I’ve been convinced now.

    Don’t waste your time! Saw it in the theater, and wished I could get my money back. Needs a better ending.

    Don’t waste your time! Saw it from Redbox, and wished I could get my money back. Needs to be all better through out the whole movie.

    I’ve been wanting to see this film however every time I go to Redbox, it’s “Out Of Stock”. I think I’ll rent this one over Spring break. It looks like a good film with invaluable messages.
