Yesterday was my first time trying Redbox. We have Netflix, but I really wanted to see this movie last night rather than waiting the "Short Wait" time Netflix said it would be. So, I thought I'd give Redbox a shot. Have you tried it? My first impression...AWESOME! Before you go to your Redbox and find that the movie you wanted was sold out, you can reserve a movie online and go pick it up at a designated location. The movie was in great condition. And it's only $1 per night. I returned my movie this morning and it was super easy. If you haven't tried it, try it this weekend. It's really that easy. Thank you, Julie, for telling me about it!
So, what was the movie I was dying to see...The Last Song. As you know, I read the book and really enjoyed it. I was interested to see how the movie would play out against the book. Remember the book and movie are NEVER the same! After watching the movie, I give it two thumbs up! They left out some parts, but the main storyline was still in tact. I cried continuously during the last hour of the movie (maybe it was because I'd read the book and knew what to expect or because I am hormonal still), but it was a great movie.
Fred asked why I read Nicholas Sparks' books and watch the movies because I always cry. I answered, "Because they are so good."
I actually thought Miley did a great job and her character was cast perfectly. I must admit I was skeptical. I really enjoyed Greg Kinear in a more serious role. I honestly don't think I've seen a good love story movie like this one in a long time.
Rent it this weekend!! And if you haven't tried Redbox, try it too!
