redbox reviews

Just some reviews of Redbox movies we've watched over the last few months: 

I didn't really like this movie.  It was extremely violent and the whole "time travel to kill your older self" thing was annoying and very jumpy.  The plot was a little weird and yeah, I spent most of the movie staring at Joseph Gordon-Levitt's face and trying to see what the heck they did to it in order to make it look slightly weird and different.  Do not recommend.  1 out of 5 stars.
weird, right?

Cute, funny, entertaining. 3 out of 5 stars.

I am a big fan of the Bourne series and I will have to say this one is only OK.  It just ain't the same without Matt Damon.  This storyline was also really jumpy and the plot was unclear.  1.5 out of 5 stars.

This is a miniseries that was done by the History Channel and it was AMAZING!  John and I loved this!  I would watch it all over again, it was so interesting and I learned a lot.  Beware that it's almost six hours long because it was a miniseries, but definitely worth every minute.  Highly recommend. 5 out of 5 stars.

I thought this movie was well done, it was a good story and I liked the actors.  Not the best movie of all time but definitely a good movie.  3.5 out of 5 stars.

Ugh, we did not like this movie.  Not even a little bit.  It was depressing, weird and we didn't even really understand the point of the movie.  Do not recommend.

Great movie!  Loved the casting, loved the storyline, loved everything.  Just a heads up, it can get pretty graphic at times.  4.5 out of 5 stars

We were not really impressed with this film, definitely not one of Pixar's best.  The animation was great but I felt the storyline was lacking, even for a kid's film.  2 out of 5 stars.

I was not impressed with this movie, I was looking forward to something hilarious from these two guys and they didn't deliver.  It was foul mouthed (which shouldn't have come as a surprise) and I really felt like it was lacking in the humor department.  It makes me mad that comedians these days replace humor with foul language and nasty jokes.  I might sound like a prude but I do think you can be funny without saying gross things every few seconds. 1 out of 5 stars.

We both really liked this movie.  It's definitely got an indie feel to it so if you're not into that you may not want to watch it.  I thought it was cute, quirky and a bit endearing.  Plus, I love Aubrey Plaza so that pretty much sealed it.  3.5 out of 5 stars.

Wow what have you been up to lately?! We watched Argo this weekend and it was really good. I literally had a heart attack the entire movie because of the suspense (even though I knew what happened)!
