  • Animation by rotorrentinfo/PZj7QQVYbWAVeQdCLBXZiyw

    • There's a blockbuster in farmington I think

    • loveee the animation man!!!, really wouldn't mind if you become a, animation channel

    • @White Alliance// yooo you watch cr1tiKaL?? neattt. i checked out that other channel you are linked to. "seek the truth" i think is the channel? well cool.

    • *BLOCKBUSTER HAS A STREAMING SERVICE IN DENMARK AND SWEDEN!!!* look it up, it's run by TDC Group.

    • We still got Blockbusters streaming in denmark

  • im not gonna look for it now, but i still have the last vhs tape i ever rented from there... "SLC punk" starring mathew lilliard... i hate movies that constantly break the fourth wall (ferris bueller style) but i still have it in a closet for some reason... another great example is kodak - kodak invented the digital camera, and then doubled down on film... but the best brick and mortar/cyber fail paradigm was montgomery wards - they were the only game in town for mail order products in america for over a goddamned century - you could order whole houses and cars and shit through their catalog - but they were spending money on their mall stores when they could've been transforming those catalogs into a website for a fraction of the cost - they could've been Amazon...

  • My family was a Hollywood video/ game crazy family we got all of our games and movies there but eventually it closed and if I remember correctly it's a yoshinoya and taco Bell now lmao

  • Might just be one of those self conjured memory deals but i vaguely remember Blockbuster also trying to compete with Redbox for a little bit. I swear as a kid i saw a machine at a store that looked like a Redbox but was Blockbuster branded. I say it might be self conjured tho bc i kept expecting you to bring it up and you didnt.

  • Redbox was the true killer

  • Really? I went to a blockbuster 5 years ago and its still there.

  • We had a blockbuster for a long time in Fairbanks up until 2017 I think

  • Even in animation. He still has a white shirt

  • I think GameStop is losing money is because they don’t wanna pay a littl extra for return games and people would rather get the game online cheaper or from another place who would give more like independently ran game shops

  • Suck it nerds, we have the last Blockbuster on the planet here in Oregon!

  • How is family video still in business, it's pretty much just blockbuster but older

  • I never did the research, I just always assumed Redbox was the killer of block buster. I remember after Redbox started and got popular seeing Blue box? Wasnt that owned by Block Buster? Another example of them trying to copy cat an idea too late.

  • Partnered with Enron? Lol damn block, WTF... You were destined to lose

  • I still have a Netflix disc case

  • I prefer Hulu over Netflix tbh

  • i really liked netflix back in the day in 2004 or 2005 i dont remember really well, we stopped going to blockbuster forever and never went back because of netflix my dad and mom got 2 dvd's in the mail at a time and me and my sister got 2 dvds in the mail, so i just added games to the list for my dvd it was pretty sweet

  • There is a shop in Melbourne but hardly no one goes there anymore.

  • Does anyone remember Hollywood Video?

  • I too often think of blockbuster. As well as $1 double cheeseburgers at McDonald's (not that 2 dollar "mcdouble" bullshit with 1 piece of cheese. Like Seriously WTF)

  • Didnt expect this, but just got slaughtered by the feels man

  • I remember sneaking to the 14-18+ section to get a little peak....

  • At least I could rent one movie when I was young TT

  • In fort Wayne Indiana they have like 40 of those motherfukers now we have like 39 I don't know if it's just me but I haven't noticed the drop in my backwards state

  • Red Box busted em' up pretty good , too

  • All the people who still had games and movies rented when they shut down must have been happy

  • Hey you forgot to talk about how computers got fasterand much better than they were in people or just illegally downloading movies on their computers taking from Blockbuster.

  • I still miss Game Crazy. It was way better than Gamestop. Unfortunately it was dragged down with Hollywood Video.

  • I hated Blockbuster. It's the reason why my local video store, "Downtown News amd Video" closed down (Rip Downtown News and Video 1986-2003). Blockbuster felt so artificial and emotionless for a video store. I don't really see why people miss Blockbuster so much, since there still are a few local video stores left (as little as there are). So it's not like when Blockbuster died, that every video store died.

  • Only 22, but I definitely remember the “no more late fees” advertisements. To this day, there is a Family Video bike-riding distance from my house.

  • God, I still have memories of that day I noticed the blockbuster was gone. W. Gandy Blvd. Blockbuster....you will be missed RIP

  • I think an extremely wealthy person should try and bring it back, that would be the top story on the internet. No doubt in my mind.

  • I like the new way family video is staying relevant in wny and that's they started selling cbd

  • I'm late but whatever. Blockbuster was so much better than Redbox. Redbox was alright if u were the first to the box that day. Otherwise every other disc is gone. Blockbuster was superior in games as well. They had more than 1 or 2 copies of popular games unlike redbox. RIP Blockbuster.

  • Family Video was better because they had a hidden porn section. I would sneak back there as a teenager. I was caught many times.

  • I remember when Netflix was a mail service lmbo

  • Also we were a FamilyVideo family lol

  • Didn’t they start making Blockbuster versions of Redbox?

  • Bruh I live in Northwest Washington, Ive been down to that blockbuster like 10 times.

  • SO YOU'RE FUCKING TELLING ME THIS SHIT WENT OUT OF BUSINESS *ONE* YEAR BEFORE I WAS BORN?

  • Blockbuster: "Who are you?" RedBox: "I'm you but stronger."
