When living in KC, I was 10 blocks from SRO Video - probably the best rental place in the whole city. A massive selection of art house, foreign, anima, documentary, etc. Now, I live miles and miles from any such place and I'm surrounded by Blockbusters and Hollywood videos :(

I guess on the bright side I'm gauranteed a copy of something like "White Chicks" when I go in.

So... what's this netflicks thing everyone was talking about. I think that might be my only option.

Sounds like here,only it's movie theatre hell,only the so called Hollywood hits nothing even remotely out of the ordinary.Thank God for the Independent Film Channel and Hastings bookstore.

You could go with Netflix, or just do what I do... buy everything you want to see.

:( I have no money anymore... it's all tied up in the roughly 1,500 movies I have.

I noticed that Netflix has temporarily dropped their price, but I am sticking with Blockbuster online for now.

Only 14.00 a month and a huge library (especially Asian films which I enjoy)

I've had Netflix since Oct. 03 and haven't had any problem yet. I will not go to any rental place ever again. I go thru 3 movies a week. Usually watch them on the weekend and send them back on Monday. I always get my new selections by Thursday in the mail. I pay 17.99 a mos., which works out o $19 and some change after taxes for an average of 12 movies a month.

I went out there once. I think it was in 1995.
