    The experience of walking through any store and being able to pick up, look at from all angles and put back down an item that physically exists, the internet is taking that away, and while online services are convenient, they're just not as fun.

    The last time I went to blockbuster it was 2009 and they had all these complicated late fee's and fines you had to pay if you didn't bring the DVD back in time. Never went back after that and I remember shortly after they closed down and quickly became a Five Guys Hamburger place.

    In sweden a videorental was supposed to be shady, paying no tax use unpaid works force ,use all tricks in the book ,sell untaxed tobacco etc . Half of of those might have thier buddies in crimegangs - glad their business gone to shit.

    I was a small child when blockbuster was still in my city, but I still remember the smell and the excitement of walking around there. And honestly I’d looove to have blockbuster back. It would be such a cute date to go pick out movies at the blockbuster and watch them all night. Kinda like blockbuster and chill 😳

    What happened?
    Lazy people and netflix is what happened

    But netflix is slowly heading down a bad road themselves. I just recently cancelled cause the same shows/movies have been on there for months or bunch b rated movies no cares to watch. The horror movie sections is severely neglected and riddled with shitty b rated horror. Now that other corporations want to get on subscriptions services, netflix is cranking out originals that are hits but a lot misses lately. I just want movies i can't find in so much their own crappy movies/shows. But it's really sad how we killed block buster off like that, all because we were to damn lazy to get up and take movie back after getting up and taking it home.

    I only remember one or two things about Blockbuster: the time I walked in there with my mom once, looked around the store stupidly thinking it was going to be around forever and walking out buying nothing, and the "No More Late Fees," commercial along with the two hamsters.

    If there's one thing I'll never forget about Netflix, it's the cases. Recently I went to Vintage Stock just to look around and saw there were 2 different prices for some used copies of the same movie. After picking up the cheaper one, I could immediately tell it was a Blockbuster case and I was right.

    Sorry, it was the limited selection and the dammm late fees! It was the same cost as the rental itself and it was quite arbitrary. No excuses. Pay it or never rent again. Revenue positive or not we knew we were being taken advantage of. Just poor customer service, too. It was a necessary part of the 80s for families, but frankly not that much fun. A lot like cell fones these days.
