    Blockbuster let me experience Mass Effect, Oblivion, Assassins Creed and Borderlands back when I couldn't just ask for a new fucking game every couple weeks. I will forever be thankful for Blockbusters influence on my life.

    The enron fiber optics gig would have been insanely ahead of its time. Too ahead, possibly too expensive for the time. Don't think it would have been too good because of the cost and ppl resisting such a jarring change. Its a huge leap from store rental to streaming, in 99 no less.

    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.

    Since that time MGS has become my favorite franchise.

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.

    I worked for one of the last Blockbusters in Oregon for a few years until they closed down. It was a great place to work right up until Dish Network brought them out before closing and the whole focus went from trying to talk to people about movies to trying to sell them TV while they're there for something completely different. Sad times, but yeah a lack of foresight really killed them in the end. Also, thank you for pronouncing Oregon correctly.

    Didnt they have Blockbuster On Demand kiosks outside of other retailers? I remember there was a war between them and Redbox which I always thought killed Blockbuster for good. There was just more Redboxes and now thats all we have for renting purposes anymore.

    Fuck Blockbuster!!!
    They would refuse to rent certain movies at all. I don't take lightly to censorship! Rumor had it that Blockbuster would edit some of the movies they had on their shelves. This simply was not true. However, they would receive special cuts of movies from the studios . . . basically, pre-edited versions for all of the "family-friendly" stores, and to make that bullshit even worse, nowhere was there any kind of notification that their version of the movie had been altered from the original theatrical release! I firmly believe one should spend their money in local businesses whenever possible. Spending your money locally, rather than handing it over to some big corporation, will ensure that more of your money stays within your community. Keeping more of your money within your community benefits not only yourself, but everyone else in the community. Even though you may no longer have that money, having spent it locally means somebody else in your community has more money now to spend. Eventually, this money will come back to you. One can think of it as a method to avoid creating a trade deficit, and all of the problems associated with it. When it comes to renting physical copies of movies, I always preferred the local businesses . . . no matter which city I was residing in at that moment. Many of the businesses had free popcorn to snack upon while perusing their selection. Most of these businesses also had unique decors or even themes which were much more stimulating and comforting than the plain, dull industrial look of Blockbuster! I recall one store which had refrigerators from the 1950s which were utilized to display some of the movies. All of these local, indie businesses had a much better (not always larger) selection than Blockbuster, some of them even specialized in specific genres of film. Fuck Blockbuster, they got exactly what they deserved!!!

      netflix did have part on it but that's not the whole case, the main reason they fail are because Blockbuster higher-up just gave up and taking the money away rather than changing their practice and business model (it's around $4 Billion i believe).

    I’m at the ripe old age of 36 and can remember when Blockbuster exploded into the Midwest, in particular Metro Detroit because everything was all Mom and Pop places (which were just as good). I remember feeling like Blockbuster was the Kmart of movies, so much bigger with so many copies of the new movies you wanted and Family Video still exists by me and even sell CBD oil which is pretty odd but if that’s what it take’s for them to stay in business then have at it. Go and support your video stores if u have any!! They’re like noble Monks preserving a interactive time capsule and they need your $$$!!!

    CHARLIE, you can't blame Blockbuster for their deal with *ENRON* failing. The people at Enron went to jail for the rest of their lives for what they did with the Enron business. No one could have made that partnership work. This was written like you don't know about the Enron scandal, I highly recommend you look that up. I guarantee you that was the real major tipping point for blockbuster failing, it was Enron's fault.
