Blockbuster AlaskaI have very fond memories of Blockbuster Video. Before everything became streamable, and the internet was the go-to place to learn about the latest indie/foreign films, Blockbuster had me back. They introduced my to Takashi Miike, allowed me to develop a strong obsession for obscure horror and kept me in the loop with arthouse foreign titles.

While the internet has sadly made Blockbuster a thing of the past, Alaska’s location is still going big. As you can see in the video, a majority of the state doesn’t have fast enough internet for Netflix, and in a state so sparse, it’s a beacon of IRL connection and a hub for the latest films.

Rock on Blockbuster Alaska.
