      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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Kirsty Bolomey-Humbley

    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).

    Blockbuster
    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.

    R.I.P. Blockbuster.
    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.

    I unfortunately wasn't able to witness the downfall of Blockbuster cuz I was in Germany during that time (mum got stationed at an air base). 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.

    When was the last time anyone has even SEEN a BlockBuster? The absolute last time I saw one was all the way back in 2004.
    Speaking of companies that were popular in the '90s and early 2000s, you ought to cover Sears, Toys R Us, Hollywood Home Video, and Circuit City next.
