Well, Blockbuster never really had that good of a selection. It's passing shall open the door for a new, possibly better, company to take its place.


....And that's alright with me.

I don't know, I think brick & mortar video stores are in their twilight days.  They probably won't go away COMPLETELY anytime soon, but they're going to be few and far between from now on.

Just like drive-in movies. They were really popular, but died out as cinemas became more popular. Too bad that the loss of rental stores will mean that still more students won't be able to find a job they can actually work while taking classes.

Good riddance.  There used to be lots of independent stores and chains that had incredible selections of movies.  Those are where I first watched "Demon Wind," "Alien Predators," and countless other bad movies.  Blockbuster drove them all out of business, and Blockbuster's selection has always been very narrow, very mainstream, very boring. 
Thank God, Blockbuster near me has some of the crappiest movies to watch and very few good comedies to view.

Most of the Blockbuster stores didn't allow you to take the instruction manual with you when you rented a game, but now that they're going under, perhaps they'd allow you to actually have the manual if you're buying the game? That would be nice for once.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
