rest in peace blockbuster :'(
@bones82, actually there are 11 blockbusters still open and alive....in Alaska. The wi-fi is sh*t so is the phone signal, so streaming movies is impossible which means they got to rent them the old fashion way. Plus with the weather people stay in a lot, thus movie nights are a big thing up there
@Captain Cornleon, there is one in sandy, oregon
@bones82, R.I.P. Blockblister
@bones82, Blockbuster is an example of progressive business practices and the businesses that do not embrace change.
best era of blockbuster for me was when they tried everything to stay in business. You could rent unlimited movies or games but just 2 at a time. Remembering those lazy days taking several trips. Good times
@naturagood, i remember going and renting n64 games and having to restart everytime because some a hole erased the memory save.
@naturagood, I worked for Blockbuster in that era. That was a really good program, then they tweaked and "fixed" it until it was a ripoff. That company was so disconnected and dysfunctional over policy, I truly believe it deserved to collapse. Every policy change was just another way to make things more expensive and less valuable for the customer.
Best thing about Blockbuster? They died before 'lit' became so horribly misused.
You will be remembered the one where I live disappeared in a day
No seriously, they glowed pretty bright. But I rarely went there because a better rental chain was more numerous here. They're still running too.
I used to get 3 movies and they're big size chocolates for movie nights.... I miss blockbuster but Redbox is much cheaper....
And you'll never know what it was like to owe thousands of dollars in late fees
Born in '90, I never how lit blockbuster was because I was poor
Anyone old enough to remember blockbuster and who uses the word lit, needs to examine their life.
Oh yeah, blockbuster. Where it was $6.99 to rent a videogame for a weekend and eventually would stop working because every disc was scratched. Seriously, this is something people look back at through rose tinted glasses way too much. Netflix and Gamefly were such a welcome upgrade.
My mother rented Pokémon blue for us. It was amazing until we had to give it back. Had a meltdown over all my pet Pokémon i lost so we got the game ourselves. It was terrifying both as a kid and for the parent
Blockbuster was awesome. But Netflix would mail movies so you wouldn't have to leave your house
The blockbuster near my house shutdown about 2 months ago.....
Make it a blockbuster night
