      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

    By far the most advertiser friendly video I've ever seen Charlie put out. Nice work my guy.

  • patchchrist

    Nah, I actually hated Blockbuster. I don't remember them as fondly. My memories of them are ridiculous late fees, overpriced, over-edited tapes, and stores colder than a meat locker. Good riddance.

    Peak your fucking cap bud. Its been annoying me for ages but no one has said shit. Baseball caps need to be bent into a triangle to be any good at blocking sunlight when walking. Otherwise you may as well be golfing with that silly green hat shit. Great upload as always btw. Love your work.

    I totally forgot that Netflix used to mail you your movies. I just blocked it out of my memories

    Blockbuster would be around if they just bought Netflix they wouldn't have died out because they fell behind on the technologu

    I mostly rented 360 games from blockbuster, and I forced my family to pay for the movie Alpha and Omega and the game adaptation of Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa (which I remember as the best fucking game in the world) I was low-key pissed as hell when our Blockbuster closed because that was the only place in town that sold games for a good few years until we got a small game store that also happened to close like two years ago

    honestly you would think people would rent like 20 movies the day before blockbuster declared bankruptcy and then never return the movie

    I remember my dad telling me this story of how blockbuster started and ended just out of the blue... and then I get a recommendation from Charlie's video

  • Cory Ellis
    Cory Ellis you're telling me that Blockbuster IS still alive?? As long as there's one :) My family was die-hard for Blockbuster, we had the membership where you get a movie in the mail each month and special deals on rentals and stuff. And we would pick up a movie at least once a week, times were great.


    The first I ever remember hearing about Blockbuster was from the South Park parody of the Shining from 2012 where Randy buys an abandonned Blockbuster store for $10,000 and forces his family to work there with him, then he goes insane because there's no customers and he's in denial about video rental stores being obsolete.

    I had my birthday party at the Blockbuster Golf & Games near my hometown. That place closed in 2000 but I remember it fondly to this day.

    My mom still has a couple of Blockbuster movies she was going to return but the store was DONE when we showed up. Can’t return movies if there’s nowhere to return to so we kept them.

    I wish the old you was secretly in a basement prison. I miss your old content. Maybe you'll make a u-turn at 80. I'm still entertained by your work, its very different. I'll be subbed, and hopefully you hit the big pictures one day.

    This video taught me the sad reality that all of my living memory (I’m 20) of blockbuster was during its decline. Wild

    I remember blockbuster so well despite the fact it closed when I was only five. I remember renting movies at a blockbuster that I would walk to with my family and I would always rent the same movie over and over, when that location closed despite the fact I didn’t fully understand at the time I was devastated because my weekly family trip to blockbuster was taken away so suddenly.

    I remember walking all the way to Blockbuster, navigating the gauntlet of creepy panel vans just to get at the Pokemon Snap booth. And now I need to go take a cold shower.

    Problem is blockbusters last ceo pretty much took the company back since his position was that the future of the company was retail. so blockbuster stopped expanding the by mail service.

    I remember renting Battlefield Bad Company 2, Dante's Inferno, & Medal of Honor around 2009, we still had a Blockbuster where I lived. Within a month of renting them, they storefront closed permanently. 3 "new" games for like... $12 bucks. Art of the deal babayyyyyyyy

    Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdailypro Step 3. Enjoy! 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.

    In my State we have the Last Blockbuster

  • uknownada

    6:14 Every few months or so I see an article about "the last Blockbuster in America" and it's always in a different state. I think usually Alaska, but how many Blockbusters are there then?
