Adventureland



I was psyched when I saw Adventureland (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart) at the Redbox machine, I really was. I was able to watch almost three quarters of this movie before I got too bored to continue. Just not very funny.

Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger



Chris Rock's latest comedy compilation comes to your local Redbox machine. This one is an interwoven compilation of three of his tours, taking place in London, New York, and Johannesburg. Funny no matter what color you are.

Push



Push (Chris Evans, Dakota Fannings) follows the son of a powerful telekinetic as he saves the world from a shadowy organization. Lots of action, a couple of laughs, overall pretty amusing.
