Blockbuster was a large part of my childhood as well, every time a new pirates of the Caribbean film was coming out I'd go to the local blockbuster dressed as a pirate every single day and ask them if they had it yet.

i remember the ones in new jersey and pennsylvania stuck-up clickish need to take on a second mortgage just to pay the late fees, all their new releases cost an arm and a leg, long wait lines out the door and around the corner also must have astronomical credit but beloved by many until lots of lawsuits over said late fees and the willingness not to change over new developements (internet, live streraming,) etc... overpriced rentals at times and most managers were dicks!!!!!!!!

2:00 I had no idea Netflix was old enough to have an old looking commercial like that, I always thought they appeared out of nowhere in like 2004. I remember my family had Netflix (we actually still have one of their DVD's that we never returned) a while before the online streaming even existed and I remember having to clarify whether something was available from netflix as in "online" or "they can send it to your house".

How do you save the business? Turn that last location into a museum of what movie rental used to be like. Advertise it as the last blockbuster ever and turn it into a tourist destination. Then put a redbox at the entrance to help set the mood.

I like the experience of a movie store. I’m a big movie guy in general. Nowadays, I just go to Family Video. Has a similar vibe to Blockbuster and it’s dirt cheap.

Kids now will never have the disappointment of walking into a block buster on a Friday night excited as fuck to watch the new Leonardo DiCaprio flick with the fam and maybe pickup a game to play on your ps1 with your siblings, just to find out they are all rented out.... not a single new release to be seen and you get stuck watching your old shitty movies you already own. It was soul crushing and taught you what the world is really like at such an early age.

Bideo gaymes! Movies are for idiots, I bent all my autistic awesomeness towards the games. I remember when they resorted to something like $14 a month for unlimited game rentals. I was fairly young... Adolescent. Still, the idea of just getting a game, getting bored of it, and all I had to do is convince a sibling old enough to drive... I remember when I rented a sidescroller (Metal Slug 3) and my big sister (only around 13 years older. Though still an adult with kids) was side-eyeing me like, "Hey, let me play." It blew my mind. It was like one sentence that made me see her as a sibling, and not a pseudo parent figure. I remember thinking, "oh this game must look fun for her, 'cause she's old and used to these old games. She's not a crumby adult, but a me that has been alive longer." I hope that makes sense...

Block Buster had 2 things Netflix will never have social interaction in a public space and the actual ability to rent games.

When I was 4 I got the phantom menace from blockbusters near my house. It closed down and I never got to return it. 6 years later I moved to bend Oregon which has the last blockbuster in the world. I finally got to return my phantom Menace.

we had Popcorn Video instead. you could get popcorn or cotton candy and a slushy then go pick a movie to rent. and the late fees were the same price as renting it so i would just keep the same game for weeks until i fully completed it then just payed 5 bucks for each week.

I remember getting my first Wii game from blockbuster, New Super Mario Bros Wii for me and my brother, and cooking mama for my sister. We'd gotten things before that but we came back often so I could try more games. I remember getting the first mario galaxy and the sequel from blockbuster. I think blockbuster is one of the reasons I became a gamer. Sad to see what happened to the company but it gave me lots of good times.

I don't know what Blockbuster was like but from what I've heard hear, it sounds a lot like a library except without books. But I only get movies at the library.

The downfall of Blockbuster also happened to coincide with a time that Libraries (at least where I lived) began to carry movies and music. I remember we had the 2 or 3 disc Netflix membership, and we would send out the old movies at the post office, on our way to the library, where we would pick up movies that we wanted to watch but weren't worthy of our Netflix queue. Netflix basically covered all the movies that were too new to be at the library already. It was a great system, and during that time I was taking a lot of broadcast media and film related classes in high school. It was a great resource.

Why did people complain about late fees just bring the dvd back. I know lazy/procreaters existed but if you money is being suck right out of you that would be a motivation to take it back

everything was planned, this actually proves the multiverse theory the other blockbusters had to be erased from existance so that Bend, Oregons blockbuster could survive. Blockbuster-Prime.

LOL I remember when they had SNES games and I rented Chrono Trigger after 3 or 4 visits of the 3 copies they had being rented out. They had a rule for 'high demand' games where you could only keep it for about a week, so after 3 weeks they were calling my house and telling my parents to have me return the game. So what I did was, naturally, found the exact screwdriver to open the SNES cartridge, swap Super Mario World and Chrono Triggers face cover, screw them back on (the verification and store ownership sticker was on back of cart) and then returned 'Chrono Trigger' to blockbuster. Back in the 90s they didn't track the carts too well at first. I still have the best copy of 'Super Mario World' that exists to this day. Winky face.

In 2000, the amount of bandwidth available made the Blockbuster Enron plans almost impossible to pull off. Most households had 14.4K bits per second modem connections (which would take a week to download an SD movie), and the available bandwidth that could be rented from affiliates from the non-visible scan lines off of cable was also quite limited. The infrastructure would not be there until more households upgraded to broadband, and broadband got several times faster.

Love seeing the uptight guy from American Pie in the old ass Blockbuster commercial. I grew up in a small town, blockbuster was here, but there was a thriving private rental industry here that survived a lot longer than it had any right to be, even with Hollywood Video also trying to crush the market. Fun note, one of the private video rental locations is still open here. 1 soldier left holding the line, long after Blockbuster shit the bed.

Blockbusters should have partnered with Pizza Hut, where there was a blockbuster there was a pizza hut they could have offered coupons for each other like rent 3 movies get 1.00 off pizza or buy a 3 topping large pizza get a $1 off movie rental because we all know pizza and movies go well together. Oh well missed opportunities at least pizza hut is still doing ok.

As a former manager who got to witness the "hail mary's" being thrown in '99 to save the company, BB made many horrible attempts at keeping customers. They partnered with entertainment competitor DishTV to try and get customers to casually make a quick buy in a DishTV service which cost hundreds of dollars to start...right there at the register, which was always a super awkward pitch. "Late Fees" were changed to "Extended Viewing Fees" after someone sued BB over the terminology semantics and won. And remember, the business model for BB wasn't new; mom-n-pop video rental places charged late fees as well, and most of their stores had a bigger selection of rarer, older movies. BB was essentially the Disneyfication of branding the video rental model towards family entertainment, complete with a moment in time where certain BB's would edit their movies to a "cleaner" version of a popular movie, like "Titanic." It was an interesting time, but a number of their decisions were very awkward, to me.
