    Naw. We cool. We cool as Marty and Cohle.

    I'm Cohle though.

    So does this mean you finally warmed up to True Detective?

    Redbox has 20 titles, half of which are found footage handi-cam movies.
    Netflix' Vincent Price collection alone trumps Redbox..

    Seriously, if you can find more stuff you want to see from Redbox I have to question whether you watch anything but crap.

    I've rented movies from Redbox quite a few times. Their online streaming service, however, is just awful.

    its a crapshoot for sure

    of course if you have the time and are inclined you can search and see which movies are in which box. Reserve it and go pick it up. I have done this a couple of times, but usually just walk up and roll'dem bones!

    See, you enjoy old movies. Most of us don't, though.

    If you do- sure, Netflix is a goldmine.

    Nahh. Still disliked it greatly for at least 5 reasons.

    But I did like the characters. Even as monotone/boring as they were most the time.

    You're probably right, and there also seems to be no love for indie, underground or essentially any movie that isn't commercial Hollywood product - current or older.
    I cannot for the life of me imagine how people could essentially blanket out 97% of existing movies - especially when 75% of the remaining 3% is garbage.
    Do we only read new books too? Only new music?

    Streaming services blows the damn doors off anything 'rental'.

    Really, there is no comparing Netflix to Redbox. I easily watch $10 worth of content a month off of it and you would have to be very shallow minded to not find the same. Redbox is just a substitute for new releases.
