It looks like the bottom has finally fallen out of Blockbuster. After numerous failed attempts at attracting new customers, the company is finally spiraling out of control.
Sad as it is, the end is near for Blockbuster, and all that pressure it has been placing on Netflix will be lifted.
And in the end, Netflix will be left standing to fight another day.
Although Blockbuster tried everything it could to create a compelling reason for us to use the service, the company could not overcome its downfall. For years, it was hated by those people who saw it as a monolithic organization that enjoyed charging exorbitant late fees and had little or no care of what the customers wanted most. So when Netflix offered an entirely new service, the dynamics of the industry was inexorably changed, and Blockbuster was left playing catch up.It looks like the bottom has finally fallen out of Blockbuster.

The 1960s and '70s-era soul music featured in the movie, out on Friday, is its invisible character, says Kathy Nelson, president of film music for Universal Pictures, who helped put together the music for "American Gangster."
Some of the songs are classics, like Sam & Dave's "Hold On, I'm Coming." But because licensing music can be expensive, Nelson told The Associated Press they had to be creative at times.There's already Oscar buzz circulating around Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe... more

The movie version of Dan Brown's book, Angels and Demons is scheduled for release December 19, 2008. I think it is sure to cause a controversy just as The DaVinci Code did, and I actually see this book as more controversial based on its plot and its ending. I won't give it away, however, if you have read the book are you looking forward to the movie? Even if you don't like the book, the one premise from it that is real is that science and religion for centuries have been fighting a war for domination in our world, and this book in my view does a good job of illustrating that war and its consequences as well as making people question what they believe and why they believe it. I personally am looking forward to seeing it.The movie version of Dan Brown's book, Angels and Demons is scheduled for release... more
