So, on Saturday night we had to go out. On the way back, I decided to stop at our local Blockbuster store.
I think my wife and I have both mentioned how the local store is going to close soon, and so they’re liquidating their entire inventory. Everything must go. They’re selling their games, movies, furniture, fixtures, and if they’re not careful someone may make an offer on a couple of their employees. I mean, they might even be selling the carpet.
I had to turn the cashier down three times for signing up for their movies-on-demand, aren’t-we-just-like-Netflix offer. I don’t want a free movie, thank you. No, thank you… really. LOOK PUNK, I SAID NO, ALL RIGHT?! Jeez! Get a job at a used car lot, willya?
Anyway, when I finally convinced her I wasn’t interested, we ended up with a few great movies. Some were Blue Ray discs, others not. I try to make sure if the movie’s effects-heavy and recent, we get the BD if it’s available. On the flip side, if it’s a movie we love but there’s nothing notably spectacular visually in it, I get the regular, less expensive DVD version. Tonight, though, we got a few BDs for $6.99, and ended up with something like nine movies total. SCORE!
I’ll be sad to see the store close, but in the meanwhile I will build our personal library.
Where do you all get your movies?
