I haven't been in a video rental store since 03 when I subscribed to Netflix. Me and my wife liked to go to the local stores and support their business but my wife could not ever remember to bring them back on time and the late fees were more than the monthly subscription to Netflix. Besides Netflix has just about any movie ever made. As long as it's on DVD. Actually we don't hardly even use the DVDs anymore. I now just watch everything on my Xbox.

Yeah, I do still have the streaming Netflix on my XBox as well. I just can't get the brand new movies on there which makes me sad, which is part of the reason I started frequenting BB

FINALLY! They needed something like that this whole time, I think their marketing department fell asleep for a while or something!

In my home town, it was $1/ rent if you did a one night rental and $5/ week rental. That worked for me, but in San Marcos $5/ one day rental and then being hit with late fees anyway possible is too much. I also feel like the movie selection is slowly diminishing.

I really want to see that new movie coming out with Zach Galifianakis & Robert Downey Jr. called Due Date.

It's from the director of the Hangover so it should be hilarious.\

I have Netflix 5-at-a-time for $33/mo. Not a bad deal since you can have on demand through your xbox or Wii as well. Beats paying pay-per-view or HBO/Cinemax prices!
I don't like the movie theaters. I'm 6'3" and feel very cramped.
I have a 55" bigscreen and full surround with Leather recliners, so I'm good to stay at home.

As for Iron Man 2. I wasn't that impressed. The majority of the movie was wathcing an arrogant pompace ass talk about himself. The last 20minutes was the entire movie where the action was at. 3stars out of 5 for me.
Not near as good as the first one IMO.

I haven't gone and seen a movie in the theaters since before I joined the Corps... we've got two small kids, so it just doesn't work out very well...

We only get to see one if we have a babysitter, but that's the same with everything.

Zach Galifianakis is always oddly funny, so it should be hilarious.


Also, I watched Paranormal Activity 1 last night (so I could determine whether or not I want to see the 2nd one being continuously advertised on every station). It freaked me out.
