    Blockbuster was like the Titanic. It started turning too late. And it sunk. And was a national tragedy.

    How did you get on trending, especially dropping the f bomb like 5 times and saying you’ll shave your taint?

    They should never remove that blockbuster in Oregon and just keep it as a historical monument

    I live in Bend, Oregon. I go to Blockbuster every week with my friends to pick up some movies for Friday movie night. It feels pretty crazy that I live by the last Blockbuster in the world. Hell I didn’t even know Blockbuster was dead until recently.

    I remember going to Blockbuster with the flu as a kid and I puked and shit my pants right before exiting the store. Can't do that on Netflix.

    It's crazy to think, people in the future won't even know what Blockbuster was

    Wait you missed a VERY crucial piece that also contributed to Blockbuster's demise. McDonald's Redbox! Redbox was invented, movie rentals for only $1 compared to Blockbuster fees. It was both Netflix and Redbox that killed BlockBuster. But from what I remember Redbox was the nail in the coffin, people renting $1 movies like crazy.

    To this day I like to lie to zoomers about video rental stores
    I even made up a story about turf wars between video rental stores
    Never forget the Hollywood video vs block buster battle
