No More Late Fees: The Last Blockbuster Movie Rental

last-blockbuster-rental.jpg

This is a shot of what was allegedly the last Blockbuster movie rental in the history of Blockbuster movie rentals in the United States. Honestly, I thought all Blockbusters had closed awhile ago because mine has been a cycling gym for over a year now. The picture was taken on November 9th at 11PM in Hawaii. The movie rented? 'This is the End'. How appropriate. Is dude planning on returning it after watching? I wouldn't if I were him. Plus I would have "rented" all the video games I've been meaning to play too. There's actually a locally owned movie rental place down the street from me that still rents VHS tapes and only VHS tapes. I think it's just a front for selling drugs though. Same goes for the typewriter store.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S and Luke, who have both jumpkicked Redboxes before for giving them scratched disks.

    One of my fondest childhood memories was checking out Roland Emmerichs Godzilla from BlockBuster. . . It's a shame they have to go.

    But i'm not too depressed. If you really need a rental store for your Videos. There's always going to be Libraries and Mom and Pop owned video stores. So Im not too worried.

    Heck I think Quentin Tarantino OWNS the video store he worked at when he was a kid.

    Still open in the UK (yookay).

  • The closures only affect corporate stores and not franchises. So if you still have a Blockbuster in your area like I do, it's probably a franchise.

    Actually, the ones here left in Alaska are owned by another company and are not closing down. So in my professional opinion, this picture can go fuck itself.

  • HackTheGibson

    Not the last one. Blockbuster is closing their last few stores left, but there are some franchises still going.

    When did Gilbert Godfrey gain so much weight and start renting shitty movies at shitty stores?

  • Sh17C0que

    And when did he multiply by 3?

  • Dom

    When he started reading Geekologie and stopped doing anything else.

    That isnt the last blockbuster rental ever... They have a store 5 blocks from where i live thats turned into a blockbuster mobile store. it works like netflix but you can exchange your movie in store as many times as you like. ITS NOT DEAD YET. YOU WERE TROLLED

    Meanwhile, the other 2 guys are now celebrating with their unemployment.

  • Max Baldwin

    This guy isn't gonna return it and then 5 years from now we are going to find out that Blockbuster is suing this guy for 5 years worth of late fees. HE'S JUST A PATSY!

    I cant believe I wasted 8 years of my life on that ship

    I am pretty sure the blockbuster around me is still chugging along.

  • Guest

    I just went to my Blockbuster. Tons of people. It does really well it seems.

    I miss the days of getting baked and browsing all the movie rentals at 11:30pm trying to find that right movie to watch before the store closes. Those were the days. RIP Movie rental stores. You will be missed.
