Sorry Blockbuster

On Sunday night I rented the new batman movie “The Dark Knight” via RedBox. The movie was awesome, RedBox was awesome, overall it was just a good experience. I think that I may know why one of the local Blockbuster stores is now a Vitamin Warehouse. I could see how RedBox would put them out of business. There are many reasons why it is much better: They are everywhere (McDonalds, Walmart, the grocery store, etc), it is 1/4 the price of a regular movie rental ($1!!??), and it is super fast to select a movie and “checkout”.

I honestly am not sure that I’ll rent another movie from Blockbuster again. I was going there few and far between already with PPV, but this may have been the final nail in the coffin.

I use RedBox all the time and for the most part love it. But, you'll find, the selection at Red Box is pretty thin compared to what you'll find at Blockbuster. Other than that, heck, for $1...it's really pretty sweet.

I love RedBox! There used to be one in the Wags by my old apt. Now I can't find one in my new neighborhood! :-(
