Dont miss the old ways at all. My memories are of trying to get to the damn stores before others beat me to the new rentals. As regard to the older stuff, the boxes would be on the shelf, but rarely would the movie ever be in..and when it was the tape was in piss poor condition...then on a few occasions when the tape mangles, Id freak and hope the store wouldnt track it to me after I doctored it up. The prices were high, etc. The lines were long...dont have nostalgia for that crap at all.
I use RedBox and rent online and when I buy I buy new once or twoce a year and everything else is used from gohastings.com,,,,I get my blu rays in pristine condition used and in the case anywere from $4 to $9
