I'm gonna miss it. Thanks for everything blockbuster! I'll never forget my discovery of super smash bros when I was a kid. Some great memories had going to rent a movie with my mum and brother, the anticipation on the walk home was beautiful. You just don't get that nowadays.

Saw it coming for years. Just as sad when Hollywood Video shut down. Going to the store to rent a movie is just a memory now.


And no, redbox is not the same.

My ex-gf just quit her job there. Question is, why was she ever working there to begin with?

My blockbuster was 500 feet from my house. Good times. There was also a smokin hot girl who worked there, and well, that was awesome too.

Aw, I never had a Blockbuster near me, but I miss video stores. I miss browsing a big selection and just picking stuff based on if the case looked cool. I used to love going to Hollywood Video and getting that deal where you get like two movies, a soda, popcorn, and a candy. We used to rent Spice World every time, and Mario Party. It was glorious, and such a treat when I was a kid. I don't like Redbox and I don't care for streaming movies for some reason, so R.I.P. most of the video stores.
