Default I Miss Blockbuster Video

I'm really sad that all the Blockbuster Video stores are gone because I miss going to the video store to browse the shelves to see what movies are out and read what they're about. There's a small video store I go to which is the only one left in my area but he also sells pornos hahahahahahahahahaha. Store owner who's a white man told me most of his customers rent pornos and he said I'm one of the few customers that rents movies. I know he wouldn't be in business if it wasn't for the pornos because people that love movies have gotten so lazy that they would rather watch movies online and buy movies online. That's why all the Blockbuster Video stores are gone and the small video stores are gone.



I also don't like these Redbox movie vending machines and they're everywhere. I see them when I go to 7 Eleven, CVS drug store and the grocery store. I've never gotten a movie from Redbox because they don't have a large selection of old movies and they only accept credit cards instead of cash. My brother told me him and his wife get movies from Redbox and he said I should get movies from them but I don't want to. The video store I go to, their new movies are only $3 and I'm going there today to rent some movies.

Yep, I'm so lazy I work 40 hours a week and prefer the convenience of renting/buying online during the weekends.

I miss the old days of going to the shop and browsing around for movies to rent. Like going to the library!

I have fond memories of going to the Blockbuster in Macedonia OH but I don't miss it now. Its probably due to the fact that I don't watch many movies.

So do i Penny Lane. Bonniegirl, i used to go to small video stores. I used to go to a small video store in Alexandria, Virginia and the white woman who owned it is from Cleveland, Ohio. I told her i was from Cleveland and she told me the store was never gonna close because i had told her about Blockbuster Video stores closing. Next thing i know, i drove by there a week later and it was closed and i was mad because i loved that store. They had a large selection of old and new movies. The video store i go to now is small but the store also sells pornos hahahahahahahaha.

I really don't think there are any video stores around where I live at all anymore! The one I mainly went to closed down some time ago, and I haven't seen any of the others open in the longest time! The closest thing is the Red Box machines at the grocery stores. To me that's not the same or as much fun as browsing around a shop to find movies I want to rent !

I miss the Hollywood Video Rental store. We'd go in and browse the dvds and the video games and you could always find something you wanted to see. I didn't go to Blockbuster very often because there wasn't one on our side of town. You had to drive at least 8 or 9 miles to get to it. But their store was bigger than Hollywood Videos store.

We had a blockbuster just down the street from where I live. It closed about 5 or 6 years ago. They demolished the building last summer.

Oh No

I've rarely go to Blockbuster Video. We would rent films at a mom-and-pop video store. We'd later rent video games there.

The only place I know that still does that is Discount Drug Mart.

I also miss Blockbuster. I used to rent movies from there all the time. I liked it better than redbox and even Netflix.

Bonniegirl and Thebigcookie, I agree. I'm going to the video store next week because I haven't been in awhile.

I'm lucky that there's one video store in my area that's in Clinton, Maryland and I'm glad they're still open because i love going there. I went there last month to rent a few movies and their movies only cost $3. They have a lot of old and new movies. One of the movies i got is called Heist with Robert Deniro, Morris Chestnut, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Gina Carano and Kate Bosworth. Gina and Kate are hot women and i like Robert and Morris. Robert doesn't seem to be retiring from acting anytime soon and he's old but he's aged well. He was in the new movie Joy with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper which my mom saw last week. She said it was alright. Robert is also gonna be in Dirty Grandpa which comes out January 22nd and Zac Efron is also in it. I wanna see that. I also rented Vacation movie with Christina Applegate and Chevy Chase. Christina is still hot and Chevy has gotten fat LOL. Vacation was funny but Christina's husband was corny.
