I bet someone buys them out, and keeps the business running. So I think that blockbuster physically won't really go away, just their ownership will change.

Blockbuster will soon be history, Netflix killed them.

Blockbuster is done, I never see anyone in the store when I drive by it. Redboxes are always a line.

Blockbuster's pretty big out here. Netflix and RedBox are, too, of course. I know BB's going bankrupt, I just don't think that they'll physically disappear. I wouldn't be surprised if Netflix or someone bought them out, although I don't know if the government would let that happen...

I've been using netflix for a while now and I really like it, but I do miss the act of going to the video store. It has a certain nostalgia from when my father used to take me as a child.

I think video stores are quickly becoming a thing of the past, just like music stores.

I think they sit there bored all day, so when a customer comes in they don't know how to handle it.

I don't know, after they declared bankruptcy I think they would be hard pressed to find willing investors.

I think that and the stupid late fees. They charged far to much for late movies. At one point if you had something for over a week, regardless of due date, they charged the cost of the movie onto your account. Ridiculous.

I can get lost in Blockbuster. Everytime I'm there, my wife has to find me and tell me we've been there to long. When they have movies on sale I can be there half a day rummaging through the muck. I hardly ever find anything, but recently I found a copy of Broken Flowers for a dollar. Can't beat that!

Hah X2. Our Blockbuster has found a good base by doing a "total access" program, where you pay $30/month and you can have 2 movies/games out all the time. No due dates, and you can switch them out daily if you want (which is what my family ends up doing!) So for me, it's as cheap as Red Box, but way better selection, much faster than waiting for shipping through redbox; netflix streaming is good but they only have about 1/3 of their movies actually available for it.

I guess I'm hoping that they find some investors, because I'd be sad

Mine offered the same thing too for a while, but I never took them up on it. They ended up canceling the program due to lack of interest.
