Movie Rental

Use to have about a dozen places in town, now down to just one, but seems recently, not even any good movies to rent. Trend now is to download movies, see lots of places on the net. Told my wife, we can huddle around her laptop, that would be the easiest, but she likes our ten foot screen. This would mean getting yet another computer with a video output and an adapter, putting that in our home theater room, running an internet cable, and maybe even waiting half a day to download a movie.

We did cancel all of our so-called premium cable channels, show the same movies again and again for six months in a roll. To watch the comedy specials, need a vomit bag handy for the subjects they discuss that are suppose to be funny. Could read a book, that is what we use to do.

Is this just us?

Red Box? They're at every Jewel Osco store - new DVDs, I think some you can even reserve online. $1/day rental.

Choice with red box is limited to the most recent popular releases, many of which are not very good. Netflix is way better.

Look out for Redbox

They are in a lot of supermarkets, Grocery Stores, I started to even see then at the entrance of Some Walmarts.

$1 a movie for the night then return it the next day before 9pm.

Does this 'survival of the fittest' serve the consumer well when the end result appears to be the creation of meganopolies? Sure, whilst the game is on, the consumer has a fine old time but once the monopolies are created where's the choice then? Very flawed system as the end result appears to me to be survival of the cheapest which isn't what everyone wants ;)

Oh, so far Netflix serves well.


Refusing to use the spellchick!

I have put you on ignore. No really, I have, but you are still ruining my enjoyment of this site. .

You don't need to get a new computer or even a new video adapter to watch downloaded movies. You simply need nero or some sort of video DVD burning program. You can write the movies onto a DVD and watch it on your big screen.
