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.

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.

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!!!
super not best friends dont play

Ryuugu Komachi - 18 hours ago
indeed, it's really stupid when some idiot commenting without watching or understanding the video eh? 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).

@Maul they didnt put too much focus on it. No ads for the new movie streams it shouldve been huge news but i never heard about it until now. Netflix and redbox outsourced block buster. Plus you got hulu and RUvideos.

The video points out that Blockbuster had a Netflix-like streaming service in the early 2000s, before Netflix, with Enron as a partner so it's still interesting.

Blockbuster should've done this: rent a movie on the DVD subscription and if you return the DVD to a local blockbuster you can rent two movies free. So that way you get more customers in your stores and on your subscription. Plus double the late fee income :)

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 $$$!!!
