I switched from Netflix to Blockbuster Online because I have a Blockbuster within 5 minutes of my house. This weekend alone, all the DVDs I watched were worth more than a month's subscription. It's nice to be able to have stuff in your queue that you know you want to see and still having the option of getting a movie on a whim.
Dan likes it because he'd rather rent movies than TV shows on DVD so I put the TV shows in my queue, and he can get the movies in the store. Although only one of the DVDs was his choice this weekend: Miami Vice. I wasn't home when he watched so I can't give a review. He didn't sound very enthused about it after the fact.
The only thing I don't like is that movies stay on your queue until they get back to the warehouse. They put a little thing by it that says it was turned in at the store, but I think as soon as I hand the DVD over to a Blockbuster employee, the movie should no longer be associated with my account at all. That's just me though…
My current queue (with two that I've already turned in still there):
This weekend I saw:
The Queen – Very good. Made me wonder why they keep the monarchy around anymore at all, even though I know it was fictionalized. Helen Mirren was amazing in this. So good that you didn't even think about it being her while you watched the movie.
The Holiday – I liked it a lot, but I really like chick flicks so take that with a grain of salt.
More Buffy, Season 2 – The second season is kicking some serious ass. I can't wait for the next three discs to come in the mail.
