    Confessions Of The Video Trade

    Thanks dude... nice comment.

    To be fair Blockbuster do still get a decent range in. However, I remember working there from '98-'04 and they were mega-hot for getting a staggering range of titles in. Then again the market has changed so much in the last decade.

    Like you say though, the decline of the Indie stores is heartbreaking. I speak to so many people around the country who are so frustrated having no Indie rental place near them. I thought the idea of progression was to provide more choice for people. Whilst its true for 'Avatar' that you can rent it through several different mediums, the odds of being able to rent 'City Of The Living Dead' in a bricks and mortar establishment next week are severely diminished... well, except at my place !

    Confessions Of The Video Trade

    Hey snips great blog, i work for blockbuster and have to agree that we are indeed focusing more on mainstream Hollywood flicks like sherlock and Avatar, but we do sometimes get the as you say cat 3 flicks in, i believe that it is the smaller title that are actually keeping us just floating at the moment, we get a lot of people taking 1 big new release but we get more people taking for of the smaller titles for 10.00.

    im a firm believer in independent rental companies as that was all that was around when i was was kid, i wish there were more...
