Sometimes you’re in the mood for a “normal” comedy, but sometimes you just need something straight-up silly.
Sean Anders spoke with Redbox about the importance of making a film that presents a complete picture of the foster care process.
Since my “Coming in February” post, we’ve survived the polar
vortex, wind chills of -50 here in Chicago, too many feet of snow to mention, and a broken furnace (OK maybe that last one only applies to my household). So … yeah. I am OVER winter already.
The Academy Awards® — or
the Oscars — were last night, and before the telecast even began,
everyone knew the evening was going to be an interesting one.
Far Cry: New Dawn pulls double duty, serving as both a sequel to last year’s Far Cry 5 and a brand new standalone adventure in Ubisoft’s sandbox series.
I’ll never tire of movies that shine a light on strange-but-true crimes I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Here 4 that tell
exceptionally twisted tales, including one that is currently up for 3 Academy Awards.
Who among us hasn’t wanted to be famous? There’s a reason that
an actual Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp for adults has been in existence for
over two decades!
But if you can’t BE a famous musician, the next best thing
is watching a movie
Where to even begin when talking about a powerhouse actress like Viola Davis, who’s one of only 24 people ever — in the world — to achieve the Triple Crown of Acting? (That means she’s earned an Oscar, Emmy and a Tony!)
Sometimes when things here on Earth get too depressing or
overwhelming, it helps me to remember that we are but small, insignificant specks in the vastness of our galaxy. And what better way to get that perspective than to watch a movie about space?
Movies and popcorn go together like … well, movies and popcorn. It’s really hard to imagine one without the other. And boy oh boy do we Americans love popcorn, to the tune of over 13 billion quarts consumed per year.
Over the last decade it might have seemed like the Young
Adult (YA) genre — both for books and movies — was exploding, but the reality
is that it’s always been huge.
I love it when a movie keeps its characters — and its audience — on their toes. Cat-and-mouse movies do just that by featuring the kind of suspenseful plots, protagonists and antagonists that guarantee almost unbearable tension and jaw-dropping twists.
Ah, the ‘90s. I have much love for the decade during which I graduated both high school and college. Which means I also have much love for movies that are set in the ‘90s. Here are 5 that’ll make you say “Dude … sweet.”
Several times a year I write about a crop of new movies that are based on true stories. Because as the saying goes, truth is stranger (and therefore more entertaining) than fiction. You can definitely expect another post like this in the new year, since several awards contenders depict
And now it is time for the speech I make every year: What I’m about to list out are my favorite movies. I’m not saying that these are the best movies of the year — these are simply the ones that affected me the most.
To quote a character from my all-time favorite TV show (LOST), “No one does it alone.” That’s probably why some of the most action-packed movies revolve around teams trying to accomplish a goal. Here are 4 with particularly memorable teams:
Karen Allen has played integral roles in some of the most
popular and cherished films of the last 40 years, including National Lampoon’s Animal House, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Starman and The Sandlot, which has become something of a touchstone film for
There are so many beloved Christmas movies. You’ve got your ‘40s classics like It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. Then there are several animated favorites from the ‘60s such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
What year are we in right now? I feel like I traveled back
in time to the early ‘90s because Julia Roberts is once again everywhere. Not that that’s a bad thing.
It’s important during the busy holiday season to take a little time off and just … relax. A snow day, or a day your family blocks off in order to stay at home and hang together during winter break, is the perfect time to reconnect and unwind.
I don’t know how it is where you live, but here in Chicago my kids get a full two weeks off of school for their winter break. And if we’re not traveling during that time, it doesn’t take too long before everyone catches a serious case of cabin fever.
Yes, you’re reading the title of this post correctly. Even though I write for Redbox, and Redbox in the business of renting and selling movies, and part of my job is to help you find movies you might enjoy, I have my limits.
If you’re like me, sometimes you want to get the ol’ heart pumping but are too lazy to actually work out. Thankfully we have action movies to assist in such situations. Here are 4 that will satisfy even the most hardcore adrenaline junkie:
Temperatures are dropping, leaves are changing color and falling, and there’s most definitely a chill in the air as winter quickly approaches. That’s why the timing is right for a date night — cuddling together during a movie is a surefire way to stay warm.
‘Tis the season to give thanks, and one thing I’m always thankful for is the ability to escape into another world for a few hours while enjoying a movie. Here are 4 I’ve watched recently that I’m especially grateful for.
When my son was 4, he was obsessed with sharks. There wasn’t a piece of clothing he owned without a shark on it — he was even a shark for Halloween that year.
When I learned that Disney’s Christopher Robin was coming to the Box, I immediately thought, “What to do, what to do, what to do?” The movie stars Ewan McGregor and is all about the little boy who used to pal around with Winnie the Pooh
As a mom of two young kids, I must admit that whenever I hear a new animated or otherwise family-friendly movie is about to be released, I experience a brief moment of dread.
Enjoy that downtime with one of these movies that are new to the Box and On Demand in November.
Ever since I had kids I’ve had mixed feelings about Halloween. Sure, little ones love to dress up and go trick-or-treating and all that, but what they do NOT love is when someone in the neighborhood chooses to turn their yard into a horrifying scene that looks like it’s straight
