    Blockbuster was like the Titanic. It started turning too late. And it sunk. And was a national tragedy.

    I live in Bend, Oregon. I go to Blockbuster every week with my friends to pick up some movies for Friday movie night. It feels pretty crazy that I live by the last Blockbuster in the world. Hell I didn’t even know Blockbuster was dead until recently.

    They should never remove that blockbuster in Oregon and just keep it as a historical monument

    I remember going to Blockbuster with the flu as a kid and I puked and shit my pants right before exiting the store. Can't do that on Netflix.

    Wait you missed a VERY crucial piece that also contributed to Blockbuster's demise. McDonald's Redbox! Redbox was invented, movie rentals for only $1 compared to Blockbuster fees. It was both Netflix and Redbox that killed BlockBuster. But from what I remember Redbox was the nail in the coffin, people renting $1 movies like crazy.

    Very interesting; but all without a single mention of Red Box. But this was a great video, seriously. New sub, man!
