My local grocery store replaced it's dvd collection with a REDBOX (http://www.redbox.com/) No big selection but $1.00 overnight rentals.

I see it's $5.00 for Blockbuster rental.

I recently signed up for Netflix and am still on the 2 week trial....i'll keep it likely.

Avg'ed about 3 rentals a week from blockbuster, so i thought this may be cheaper in the long run...

I don't rent movies. I'll be honest... I download a few. The ones I really like, I buy. I picked up my two disc collectors edition of "The Mist" tonight. (Even though I had already downloaded it.)

Another I got on a torrent that I'll buy, is "Shoot 'Em Up". I watched that silly ass movie twice in back to back nights. It's a hell of a lot of fun.

Hastings! If you return the movie the next day you get a $2 credit to your account.

So if you return movies the next day bascally everytime it is rent 2 get 1 free.
That is for NEW movies though...

Old movies are just 49, and 99 cents.

Still doing Blockbuster. That may change now that I'm getting a blu ray. Do they even rent blu ray movies?

Blockbuster has a few shelves for Bluray movies...usually 1 copy of each flick though. Very small, your best bet is doing netflix or a blockbuster online....

Good thing about netflix i have it setup to send auto-bluray on anything that has it, it does reg. dvds secondary of any movie. Pretty sweet

I've never used one. Wouldn't know how to... but I'd assume it's pretty simple.

Well, it sounds like a good idea, but like anything else in our now "self help" society, human error screws things up.

Try standing in line on a Friday or Sat night to rent or return a movie. Your either stuck behing Grandma and Grandpa who havent used a credit card in ages, or Soccer mom with her 4 kids waiting on a movie.

Used to go to Hollywood video but they closed down near me. Now I go to Blockbuster or Redbox.

Blockbuster Online...for now, but probably switching soon. They have had a "long wait" for "The Wire - Season 2" since January. Literally.

Can anybody using Netflix please check and see if there is a wait at all for this?

Blockbuster is right down the street from my house so I have the unlimited 2 movie trade in deal. I used to work at Hollywood Video in Columbia though and based on that store I would rate there selection much higher.

The gorgeous wife-babe and I tend to love more obscure movies and documentaries, so the blockbuster selection pretty much is lacking. Netflix gets us anything we want. We did enjoy the "get another rental by returning the movie to a blockbuster store" thing, but selection won out. Our newest strategy is to save any new release for renting at a grocerystore kiosk or redbox, everything else is netflix.

Confirmed. I selected it and it's now my "shipped tomorrow."

I'm no fan so I cancelled, but it's there.

I use the Blockbuster Total Access, which is great. I get a movie, watch it, put it back in the mail, 2 days later I got the next movie! It's just like netflix, only it's through blockbuster

Yep. Sign up on their website and they'll text you a free rental code to your phone every Monday. Redbox is the shit.

I use netfix when renting more frequently but have been using redbox or other kiosks for new releases over the past two years.

I typically reserve a move online and hit them on off hours. Though I know exactly what you are talking about. Seems like half of the time I end up behind someone that had no clue what they are going to rent and a taking the time to read every f*cking description in the damn thing.

We've been using Netflix exclusively for the last year, and we love it. About the only minor complaint is the "Very Long Wait" on the good new releases, but the same would hold true for a local rental store.

From a cost standpoint, we're definitely ahead with the flat monthly rate.

I've queued, recieved, viewed, and returned all 5 DVDs of Season two in the past couple of months, and most of the delay was me getting time to watch.

My only complaint with Netflix is they don't always have the VERSION of a movie I want, or the version isn't clear.
There's a new Criterion release of Days of Heaven that's been remastered and restored, that I'd like to see, but it looks like they're still carrying an old bare-bones release.

I like On Demand, easier than go to a movie store. Blockbuster is going under, they are in the hole so far they can't see the light of day.

I was a long time Netflix member, but I don't have as much time to watch movies now.

When I really want to watch a movie, I either buy it or I rent from the local "Movie Gallery."

Netflix is awesome. They have a pretty good selection of BluRay too. I seldom have to wait for new releases, but then again I add them to my queue as soon as I see the previews on tv. I live in a rural area and this is the only way I could get to watch the newer movies & BluRay.

Redbox here, but I just looked online and there are no Redboxes within 20 miles of my zip code.

:(

I guess that's the price I pay for living a block from the beach.
