btw, if Blockbuster wants to save itself, they can start by charging a rewind fee on DVD's. We all know how stupid so much of the public is. They're bound to bring in at least a grand or two per store each month.


I don't recall what they called it but Hollywood Video offered something like insurance in case the disc didn't play. It was a rather small charge per disc but the concept was absolutely ridiculous.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

I learned recently that Blockbuster stores (not just on-line) have an all you can rent plan. Plans and pricing is set by the individual store but near me it's 2 out at a for $30. All in all not THAT bad considering there is no shipping time and blu-ray is included.

I have no idea why they don't promote these plans.
