In the last five years or so, nearly all of the Blockbuster locations in my area have closed down, and honestly, I don't miss them.

Their prices were a bit ridiculous, and this would be understandable if they had a large selection to choose from, but their library of videos to rent was so-so at best compared to the sadly defunct Hollywood Video.

Given how Family Video has most of their selection for only $1 for rental and the rise of online streaming services, is it really any wonder why Blockbuster has lost so much share in the video rental market?

Commonly referred to as "Cockbuster". Don't expect to rent anything abouve an R-rating from this store. Instead, go to amazon.com

I'm a morbid cynic who thinks very, very differently from most other people. Chances are, if the majority says X is the greatest in its category, I'll disagree with that notion, because I tend … more
