This Is the End for Blockbuster

Blockbuster is finally closing down and it’s going out with a surprising flash of dignity and humour.



Seth Rogen responded:



Rogen’s response isn’t particularly newsworthy but it’s a little reminder of how ubiquitous Blockbusters once were. Having somewhere to hire entertainment on physical media used to be a standard local convenience like a 7/11 or a fish and chip shop. Don’t get me wrong, Blockbusters were soulless hell-holes with fifty new copies of Bad Boys 2 for every scratched and broken Un Chien Andalou, but it’s hard not to feel a twinge of nostalgia as their fluorescent glare is finally extinguished.

Adios, Blockbuster. In your last moments, you actually showed some class.
