Not gonna lie, back in the VHS days, we'd hit up Blockbuster all the time. I guess it was nice while it lasted.

:lipssealed: RIP.
First Hollywood Video. Now BlockBuster. I'll say next up is Redbox (because people still have to get up and drive to it).

Netflix... you better watch out, soon we're not gonna want to walk to our got damn mailbox.

Direct streaming to your TV via PayPerView/OnDemand/NetFlix is the future. You don't have to move s**t, but your finger on your remote.

why you mention netflix to watch out then the next thing you know that you have them being the future. Netflix has both streaming and mail on lock until hulu plus gets release.

I've had both Blockbuster and Netflix

sorry but Blockbuster wins this.....you don't have to wait for new things to come in you can go right to the store and get it. 20 bucks a month to check out all the games and movies you want. Hopefully one of the stores by me don't close down.
yeah i got blockbuster online too, i was about to hit them up today and trade in my online rentals for some store ones

Thats the catch, if its over 14 days (I think) they charge you full price for it.

Hey now, it's not nice to pick on those with mental defects.
I do Redbox once in a while (when I dont want to pause and click when I'm streaming a movie. I have the economy AT&T internet service ) They also give you free rental codes I rented Wolverine and another movie for free. :dancingcool:

it aint even netflix. movies really suck for every great movie a year 394895759 movies come out.

ppl dont really wanna rent movies when u can buy the bootleg. its one video store where i live now,and ppl never rent good movies anyhow the average video store renter has horrible taste in movies and rarely bring the movies back.


I just dont understand some people. Why the f**k would you want some s**tty quality bootleg when for 20$ a month you can rent unlimited blu-rays with netflix and stream in hd? Plus why the f**k would you BUY a bootleg when you can dl the same s**tty dvd rip quality off the net for free or get the cheapest 10$ netflix package that is dvd only and use handbrake to rip em in s**t quality yourself? Your breaking the law either way so why pay money to watch something that is sd or less?

Plus they have more than just movies. TV shows are where the quality is at now and paying 20$ a month to rent a show you'd only watch once anyway is a lot better than paying 50$+ for each season on blu-ray or wasting the time downloading 720 rips that are broken into a million pieces and take you 6 hours of waiting to dl one episode.


As far as Blockbuster goes there hasnt been one in my area in a good 5+ years. I'm actually surprised they lasted this long.

Yeah $1 a day is worse than their old late fees.




at anyone who would f**k up their credit just to keep a movie/game they rented...

f**k up my credit? you can't f**k up what's already f**ked up.
It's just jokes, home slice

Retail store closes because people prefer unmanned kiosk(Redbox/Netflix).

Unemployment nears 10%.

Coincidence?

Man Blockbuster was HUGE in the 90's. They had Music store and The Blockbuster Awards.

I loved Blockbusters online service when it first came out. Instead of mailing the DVD back and wait for another one I always went to the store. After a while they doubled the price and limited the number of in store exchanges. I dropped them after that.
