You Only Have $20 To Spend At Blockbuster, Now Plan A Movie Marathon

Blockbuster: the greatest place on Earth.

Posted on

The year is 2004. You're 13 years old and (finally) your parents are letting you have a big sleepover.

There's only one thing left to do: plan a movie marathon that you and your friends will remember for years to come.


Dad drains his mug, washes his dish, uses the toilet, and FINALLY tells you he's ready. So you hop in the car, buckle up, and hit the road...

Before you go in, dad hands you $20 and a piece of advice. He says, "This is all you're getting so don't just grab the first things you see. Pick carefully and don't be afraid to move on to the next section if there's nothing you like."


"Uhh whatever, Dad," you say. "I've friggin' been to Blockbuster before."

You get out, head for the entrance, and enter the promised land.
