RB-I: "Red Box It"  Wait for the rental.  Red Box only costs a dollar a day ma friend!

There ya go folks, a a fool-proof way to decide on what movie to see and when.

The Vow

LOVED IT!!!  Paige and Leo (Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum) are a happy newlywed couple whose lives are changed by a car accident that puts Paige in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, Paige has no memory of Leo, a confusing relationship with her parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange), and an ex-fiance (Scott Speedman) she may still have feelings for. Despite these complications, Leo endeavors to win her heart again and rebuild their marriage.
Guys, take your girl to see this!!!!  GREAT date movie!!!

BlakeBuster Rating: C-W


Here it is folks, your insight into current and upcoming cinema!  Do you think Ebert & Roper are over-rated and their "two thumbs up" rating system isn't worth crap?  Ever differ in opinion with the top movie critics (liked a movie that they hated and vis-versa)?  Well, this blog is dedicated to you, the REAL movie-goers!!  My name is Blake.  I've been an avid cinema junkie for the last 25 years (I'm 30 now).  I LOVE movies!  Some of my friends have started calling me Blakebuster because I own ALOT of movies (and they like to "rent" them).  Seeing as alot of my friends ask me what I think about certain movies, someone suggested that I start a blog, a way that people can tap into my fascination with film.  So here it is....................................
