Was it fate or a cruel twist of irony?

A Hawaiian man rented the last movie ever from a Blockbuster store on Saturday, Nov. 9. The movie? Seth Rogen’s comedy about the apocalypse, This Is the End, the retailer confirms.

The store even posted a picture of the final transaction on Twitter. Rogen responded saying, “In high school I would go hang out at blockbuster every day.”

In the coming months, the Dish Network will close all of its 300 remaining retail locations.

There are also many other streaming sites that offer you watching movies online for free. Now they will probably have more customers. It seems fair this shouldn't be monopolized by big companies, be it Blockbuster or Netfix.

Well, not exactly. Free movie sites have some ads ( just as most other sites do), so the companies that place these ads pay for movies being available to watch for free. The selection of titles and genres differs from site to site, and you certainly need to stay away from those that only look like movie sites, but require your credit card number for registering.
