Question Re: Blockbuster To Push Blu-ray Starting This July

frankly, I don't want to see porn in ANY format, particularly on a large screen! never quite understood what made it so popular since, IMHO, sex is a participatory not spectator activity!

I think with combi players and the large backing, along with the gaming industry and computer industry I think both formats will last long enough to be taken over by the next technology.

It's been a long time since I have gone into a Blockbuster to rent a movie. It just doesn't seem like a good value.(maybe compared to going to the movies) Almost $5.00 and God forbid if you're late, no late fees except for the "restock fee". For $10.00 more you can buy the DVD.

I did go the other day because of the BD offerings. I was disappointed in the 15 movies they had to choose from and I had already seen most of them except the one's I didn't want to see anyway.

You could be correct . . . hmmm, wonder what that "next technology" will be? Are we getting close to some totally electronic (no mechanical mechanisms whatsoever) storage medium like the oft-promised bubble memory? Gonna be fun to watch what happens for the next few years.

Haven't rented a movie from Blockbuster for several years now; however, I've built up quite a DVD library from their "previously viewed" selection and often get their $14.95 titles for as low as 3 for $25 and their $9.95 titles are usually 4 for $20. All come with a 30-day money-back or exchange guarantee but I've only had to return one. Usually have to clean them up a bit (most rental customers are absolute pigs in the way they handle discs) but they're a great bargain way to build your library. Can't wait for Blu-ray to start showing up in this section.

My BB usually has a good stock of Blu-Ray movies, the problem is the price!
I get 90% of my Blu-Ray movies from Amazon.
