    • kobra6660

      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

    • HentaiHistorian

  • ParkerThyDenoNerd

    I saw the one in Bend. It was like seeing a cryptid.

    The Blockbuster that we had in my Hometown was closed, but then it turned into a place called Family Video. It go shut down recently. I remember getting DS games and movies there, too.

    I never had a Blockbuster nearby, I always lived near Hollywood Video stores. Only time I went to a Blockbuster was one two towns away because I REALLY wanted a certain movie HV didn't have. I don't even remember what the movie was. Kinda weird really...Lived in two states way across from each other. Both places no Blockbuster, just Hollywood. They also went down in 2010, that was just the death year of video rental I suppose.

    Actually Enron had a big scandal and the company shut down. So that’s it didn’t work the first time

    They should keep the last one open as a museum where you walk in and you can see it's full history from the start, all the way to it's downfall

  • Wilczek

    Redbox is the new blockbuster. I enjoy redbox

  • TheVomBomb

    I saw that there was 999 dislikes and I couldn't give up my chance to be 1k exactly. I like the video and helped my sister when I was a kid at a movie gallery

  • VintageToiletsRock

    I knew someone who worked at Blockbuster corporate in the early 2000's... they quit shortly after because blockbuster would never implement new ideas. They died because they failed to listen to those who knew better.

  • Peter

    I fuckin miss blockbuster man

  • Dr.Pristine

    I didn’t know there were any blockbusters left

    I went to Target the other day and I saw there's a Blockbuster tabletop game that was made fairly recently. Maybe they're not dead after all?

    I have managed to enslave one cockroach. I named him jeremy. Should have not entered my room.

  • KaiVasNormandy

    nothing will ever feel the same as going to blockbuster to try out a new game or movie

    I could just keep watching this video over and over for some reason. I think it's the animation, his narration, and the way how he executes the vid in general.

    It still doesn't make sense that the one in Alaska, a place with little to no internet, wouldn't be the last one standing.

    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.

    Lil Caesars took over my local Blockbuster. Fuck Lil Caesars!

  • TheTw4life

    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.

  • TYL3RZ999

    News flash, Redbox killed Blockbuster not Netflix

    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.

  • matato

    I didn’t need this information, but thanks anyways

  • RixOnYoutube

    Blockbuster should expand in africa or somewhere

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

  • ShinyRayquaza9

    I thought it was redbox that killed them I remember getting cardboard ads for dvds at a closing blockbuster when I was little ;-;

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

  • BlueSubaru

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

  • Critias

    Netflix didn’t kill Blockbuster. The late fees bullshit did the trick

    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).
