BlockBuster Видео

Post by Violet » Fri Oct 14, 2005 10:40 am

Argh! I keep getting Dvd's out and the wrong film is in the case.
Last week I got "The Jacket" which is a thriller with Kiera Knightley in which looked really good. I got in and opened it and they'd given me "The Jackal" with Bruce Willis in.
Ok, easy mistake to make.
Now last night I went and got a Jack Nicholson film "About Smidt" which I've wanted to see for a while. Got home and they'd put "21 grams" in the box!
Now I actually watched this 21 grams film, and enjoyed it. It had Sean Penn in which is always good :)

Now every time I go to borrow Dvd's I will have to check in the shop that the dozy lot have given me the right disk.

Oh well, I just wanted to have a little moan. 8)

21 Grams IS a good film, probably better than the one you were expecting!

Choices is a better rental shop. Quite a bit cheaper as well, I think!

There's only a BB round here, and it is quite expensive isn't it.. like 2 quid for a big bottle of coke. And yeah I liked 21 grams. My cousin used to own a little video shop by my house but she had to sell it 'cos it went out of business. :cry:

They charge cinema prices for their junk food! Better off getting a pizza or something worth eating!

It sounds like incompetant staff at the Blockbuster you go to if its happening on a regular basis.
Why dont you try an online DVD rental service-I could recommend Lovefilm or blockbuster. About 14.99 a month-they send you 3,watch them and send them back and get another 3,etc-post all inclusive in the monthly fee.
To rent 1 DVD in blockbuster now is about

I've tried the online film rental ones. They're good but I kept forgetting to send them back!

I guess you wont get value for money by not sending them back-it limits how many you can get through in a month. :-D
