As we soak in the last few days of “summer”, here is a Redbox choice to ease you into the fall.
THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU (PG-13, 99 minutes-featuring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp, and Anthony Mackie)
This title has been on Redbox for a while now, but since there were not any new releases this week I chose to recommend, I’m going back a little bit. The Adjustment Bureau is a sleek, stylish thriller that hosts two wonderful performances and an engaging plot. What I loved about this film is the general vibe. Damon and Blunt are just great on-screen together. The film (based off of a Philip K. Dick short story) can best be described as being just flat-out entertaining. It’s an interesting flick that I recommend you check out if you already have not.
We are short on choices this week, but if you have not yet checked out the movies I’ve recommended in the past, then I highly suggest you check out the first two Redbox Reports.
Now, for the first time, I am going to simply list three films to avoid that are currently on Redbox.
1. SUCKER PUNCH – I saw this in theaters and asked for my money back after the film was over. ‘Nuff said.
2. ARTHUR – The film was not a total loss, but it leaves you right after you watch it. There are plenty of other, better films out besides this one.
3. RED RIDING HOOD – The film could have been something fun and eerie but turned out to be a Twilight tribute band.
Well, there you have it. I know we are a little out of freshness, but at I’m trying to give you something. Be sure to check next week for another recommendation.
And that’s the Redbox Report.
