THE LAST BLOCKBUSTER (All-Media Release USA 2020)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Last Blockbuster—documentary—incorporates the human factor very well in that it details family interaction at home and in the video store located in Bend Oregon. It’s surprising to see nostalgia in action and to see this video store still functioning despite the accommodations of streaming, video on demand, and the complete affordability of entertainment options on Netflix Streaming, Amazon Prime, Disney +, AppleTV, and so many more. The entertainment world is changing so rapidly that it is difficult to stay abreast of the new services available, let alone providing the home with consistent access to the new technological necessaries to access that entertainment.  The documentary has validity for the nostalgic factor and does bring back memories of a time when one had to use considerable time and monetary resources to access entertainment.
