It's movie review time!!!

Are you guys using those redbox codes I have been giving out? Well, I have and I am so shocked at how easily it is to rent a movie from redbox. A FREE movie. So, o.k. last night we rented The Box - starring Cameron Diaz. I want to be honest with you, never really had a desire to see this movie. I picked this movie because the movie we were going to rent was out and there was a line forming behind me so I started getting a little anxious.
The movie actually surprised me. First off, it doesn't take place in current day - it takes place in the 70's - no biggy. Anywho..... I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. Not one of THE BEST movie I have ever seen, but it also wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The premise of the movie is that this couple is presented with a box and they have to make a decision. They can ignore the box and the gentleman will pick it up in 24 hours and life will go on as it was. OR they can press the button and someone, somewhere that they do not know will die, however, they receive 1 million dollars. The couple has only 24 hours to make the decision. Long story short, the wife presses the button. The next day, "the man" shows up to collect the box and give them their 1 million dollars. Then the movie takes us down a road that I wasn't expected. It's kind of like a SCI fi movie without being too weird - if that makes any sense. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would give this movie an 8. I am not a big Cameron Diaz fan, however, she is great in this movie. I would definitely recommend renting this movie. AND rent it from Red box. If you don;t like it, it was free anyway so you have nothing to loose.
