    • Not buying Netflix is just a big question on why they didnt get bought out and they could have changed things if they started the redbox

  • You keep bringing up Netflix but Netflix wasn't really that big either. Blockbuster started dropping pretty early because their prices were just too much. I remember my Blockbuster only lasting like a month then closing. I think Redbox and family video is what killed it. Netflix was kinda a joke back in 2006 so I don't see much of an impact.

  • If Blockbuster were to come back it should be as some sort of Cafe/Rental mashup store, before my local video shop shut down I thought what better addition to a place like that would be than a section where you can sit down and chill while your kids look for something to watch back at home, double down on the experience it offered.

  • Wait. Netflix is beginning to die now itself. Slowly, but its dying. The last Blockbuster may outlive the company it wanted to compete with, decades later.

  • As a kid, I'd always go to Family Video with my parents and pick out a video game or a movie. Only recently it shut down. A lot of people went there, though. I already miss that Family Video and it's been gone only 2 months.

  • I was a child when our towns blockbuster shut down. All I can remember is the hot emo chick who worked front counter... AND THE SMELL!!! It’s a smell I hated as a kid, but would pay loads of money just to have a “blockbuster candle”. It’s an indescribable that I can only describe as hot-topic meets an antic shop.

  • Nah, I actually hated Blockbuster. I don't remember them as fondly. My memories of them are ridiculous late fees, overpriced, over-edited tapes, and stores colder than a meat locker. Good riddance.

  • Peak your fucking cap bud. Its been annoying me for ages but no one has said shit. Baseball caps need to be bent into a triangle to be any good at blocking sunlight when walking. Otherwise you may as well be golfing with that silly green hat shit. Great upload as always btw. Love your work.

  • I mostly rented 360 games from blockbuster, and I forced my family to pay for the movie Alpha and Omega and the game adaptation of Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa (which I remember as the best fucking game in the world) I was low-key pissed as hell when our Blockbuster closed because that was the only place in town that sold games for a good few years until we got a small game store that also happened to close like two years ago
