Ready for another round of The Redbox 5?

We thought so!

With us this time is Tracy from Sanford, North Carolina.

1. What’s the one movie you couldn’t live without?

I have a love for so many movies that I can’t narrow it down to one movie. However, I can narrow it down to a kind of movie. I couldn’t live without computer-animated kids’ films made by Pixar or DreamWorks. Either I respect the writers and creators, I am a big kid, or a little of both, but either way they make me happy and I don’t think I could live without them.

2. What movie character you would love to hang out with?

If I could hang out with any movie character, it would have to be with Sam (Johnny Depp) from the movie Benny & Joon. Wait, make that Roux (Depp) from Chocolat, or Frank from The Tourist? On second thought, just give me any of Johnny Depp’s characters—Gilbert Grape, the Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, Jack Sparrow, or even Sweeney Todd. (Yes, I said Sweeney Todd . . . better to be on his good side, right?)

3. Share a time that Redbox made your day a little better.

Redbox was just a kiosk where I could rent movies and video games for my family at an affordable rate until . . . I found their social media pages. First, their blog, then Facebook, and finally I found their Twitter page. One day while tweeting to my Blu-ray manufacturer about a problem with my Redbox rental not playing in my Blu-ray player, @redboxcares came in and asked if they could help. Thankfully they were able to fix my problem and I was able to watch my movie. Their great customer service not only made my day, but also made me a customer for life.

4. Besides a Redbox movie, what makes movie night perfect for you?

Perfect movie night for me includes a meat-lovers pizza, chicken wings, and family. However, popcorn and a comfy couch will also do.

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?

“Why so serious?” – The Joker (Heath Ledger) in The Dark Knight. Haven’t used it….much. But, I do have this awesome jacket to represent the quote.

Thanks for chatting with us, Tracy!

Stay tuned for another round of The Redbox 5 in two weeks. And in case you haven’t figured it out, The Redbox 5 consists of five fun questions we ask Redbox customers who we’ve gotten to know through their participation and comments on the Redbox Facebook page, Twitter feed, or here on Redblog. Maybe one day YOU’LL be the star of the show!

    My favorite movie comment is from “Saw”; “Make your choice…(ha, ha).”
