Greg and I love Redbox lately. We've been renting a movie a couple times a week, basically since it is a night's worth of entertainment for a dollar. There had seemed to be a dry spell over the summer of good movies that were not rated R, but that has surely not been the case this winter. We recommend the following: Angels and Demons, Star Trek, Julie and Julia, Up, and Four Christmases. The first three were especially great!
Greg and I decided to purchase a combined Christmas present with some of the money we received for Christmas (the rest will be taking a good chunk off our our medical bills; thank you again Secret Santas!). We bought a ClearPlay ($60 at Seagull Book, much better deal than ordering direct). Our friends own one, and we've been wanting one for about a year, ever since we watched a movie on theirs. We are totally loving it! You can pretty much custom filter your movie by specifying to what degree you will allow sex, nudity, profanity, violence, etc. We have already rented a couple movies we otherwise would not have viewed and very much enjoyed the cleaned up versions. Anyone up for a movie night at the Hess home?
