Blockbuster’s Last Movie Rental: This Is The End! RIP BlockBuster

Herner Klenthur

Blockbuster is closing its doors for good. Blockbuster was a behemoth in the rental business and it would seem that the times have caught up with it. I am sure that most people just like me don’t go to the video rental store anymore when you can just rent movies on demand and never leave your couch.

It is definitely a bit ironic that the very last movie that blockbuster rented was the apocalyptic thriller ‘This Is The End’ starring Seth Rogen, James Franco and the rest of their gang.

Do you still rent movies at a store or do you watch them on demand? Hit back in the comments.

RIP Blockbuster.

        It’s a sad day. I still go to the local video store but I like to look at all my options.

        I worked at Blockbuster for 3 years from 2005 to 2008. It saddens me that they’re closing.

        The hipsters of the future will bring it back just like they did with vinyl.

          Blockbuster has no use anymore, unlike vinyl.

        Blockbuster will still be dish networks streaming service. Dish didnt kill them they actually kept them alive this long by buying them in bankruptcy court. If they hadn’t they would have closed a while ago

        I’m glad to see them go, as they drove all the good mom-and-pop stores out of business. Plus they censored some of their movies.

        This saddens me or tells my age I remember going there the day of to rent a VHS and hang out with like minded people and friends
