I’m going to get a bit sentimental here.
As Christopher Moltisanti from Sopranos once said: ‘I love movies, you know dat. That smell in blockbuster, that candy ‘and carpet smell, I get high off it!’
That’s how I feel. I’m all for Netflixing, streaming, digital box recording, etc, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling nostalgic, when I think of old Blockbusters. I think the excitement of finding something you were looking for is lost when you get everything you want on tap.
So I felt really sad when the Blockbuster in town closed. The smell of the carpet gone. Dusty shelves explorations gone forever. Blockbusters were like a temple to me. When I was a teenager, my dream was to work in a DVD (or back then VHS) rental place. Where would Tarantino get his film education if there were no places like that????! Forget about it!
