Braxas, I'm forced to agree with you that the online rentals can feel like a 'second job.' I, unfortunately live 33 miles from the closest city of any size, and both the Blockbuster, Walmart, and Hollywood Videos there have a very small foreign section--which is what I primarily watch. Also, even the other older English titles I like many times are not available or not even on the shelf. So, I'm kinda stuck. :eek:
Cnl...Hollywood video shouldn't say anything for 30 rentals/mo, because the VHS/DVD selection they have is likely (except for the newest releases) already paid for, so they can't lose money on something they're not incurring an additional cost for (i.e., postage for mailing like BB or NF), and don't have to hire additional manpower to ship it/process it. If I lived close to a BB, I would try their 2/a time Movie Pass and they told me they didn't care if you came in every two hours and took out 2 more movies each day.
(edit) To Ted:
I was unaware they've discontinued it. Call your local BB to be sure and ask them if it is a nationwide BB 'drop,' then post here if they've discontinued it.
