James, Justin, and Kieran traveled to the last Blockbuster Video that's located in Bend, Oregon!! They took a road trip down from Portland, after Portland Retro Gaming Expo weekend October, 2019. The sights, sounds, and smells of their old stomping grounds was like something else. A flash from the past, where you would always go every Friday night to get the newest movie releases, hottest games, or obscure b-movie rentals. Sadly, Blockbuster's 9,000 world-wide locations dwindled down to just one. But, that comes with everything turning digital... or with movies just slapped into the Red Box at your local grocery store. Regardless, the Last Blockbuster in Bend is a tribute to anyone who lived in the 90s, especially with their museum section and classic memorabilia everywhere. Thanks to the owner Sandi for allowing us to film in the store! And, sorry that our audio isn't the best, the store is very active.

    All those Russel Crow stuff is a donation from John Oliver on his show "Last Week Tonight" when he jokes about buying all Russel Crow props and actually did it, then he donates it to the blockbuster

    Did a little research, and at the time this was filmed (October 2019), this was actually not the "last Blockbuster on the planet". There was still a Blockbuster in New Zealand running at this time that didn't finally shut down until January 2020, just google "Dargaville Blockbuster", it's actually quite a sad end for the owner and its customers.

    I remember those lucky Friday nights where my mom would take me and my bro to blockbuster for a game, movie and some snacks. Then go next door to a card store and buy a couple packs of Pokémon cards and then grab pizza on the way home. I’ll never experience that pure ecstasy ever again lol

    Good ol Blockbuster. While I do have very fond memories,I also have a alot of mixed feelings and resentment. I use to loved going to my local mom and pop dollar video store then the advent of blockbuster did away with that. Though I did grow to love the weekly ritual trip to Blockbuster .

    I grieve, I miss this so much. It's depressing. No one interacts face to face anymore. It's like the good days of my life have been completely erased, like they never happened. The mall in my area has changed in a similar way. No movie theater at the mall anymore. No one going on dates and heading to the mall anymore. The entire world feels completely stale or sterile. I don't know how to put it into words.

    I feel lucky that I was born early enough to still experience Blockbusters. I remember how it would be a few blocks from my house, and I would rent games to play for my Xbox 360. I was born around 1999, I’m nearing 21, and thinking back on it, it’s kind of unreal on how technology has advanced in the span of 20 years. I’ve never really noticed till recently.
