      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

    So many feels with this video. Blockbuster was my first job. And besides only making 5.15 an hour, it was by far my favorite job of all time. Rest easy my friend, you will always be in our hearts and our memories.

                  Blockbuster? nah family home video my guy. Pretty much Blockbuster but all the DVDs are scratched and all the employees were shit, and the video games weree 10 generations late.

                        I think the problem is in the late 90s the infrastructure wasn’t there for what Enron wanted, fiber is expensive to run...

                                  Blockbuster was the king. How about Hollywood video though, another lost relic.

                                    Its easier and faster to pirate a movie/game then go out of your house and rent one thats a factor too

                                              Considering the current oversaturation of streaming services, platform exclusive content, and the rise in piracy because of that, do you think we could benefit from a revival of the video rental system? The closest thing that really exists is dvd collections in libraries, which are free, but often incomplete (series wise).

                                                  When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.
                                                  Be careful of love. It'll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.
                                                  Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.
                                                  Our lives were now worlds apart, separated by time, circumstance, and the unbridgeable chasm of money.

                                                    It was because of you that my mom went and rented me Metal Gear Solid for the playstation.
                                                    Since that time MGS has become my favorite franchise.
                                                    Thank you, Blockbuster.

The only thing we could rely on for movie rentals was Netflix, so, yeah. Hit me hard going back to the U.S. and finding out Blockbuster was dead thanks in part to Netflix lol.
