Featured Netflix Fans Heather and Alex Review Netflix Versus Blockbuster

Heather and Alex do a pretty good analysis of the pros and cons of Blockbuster Online versus Netflix. They also do a good rant on Netflix versus Walmart. For more fun, check out their movie reviews.


  1. I'm not sure if Heather or Alex wrote the article but they have no right to call themselves a "movie freak." If either of them were true movie freaks they would emphatically complain that Netflix slowed down their service after renting too many movies. That's how I spot a fake testimonial. I been a member of Netflix for a year and a half and a member of Blockbuster since December 2004. I would say Netflix initially had a better turnaround but that seems to be changing. Last month I paid Netflix $1.47 per rental and Blockbuster $1.22 per rental. Obviously, Blockbuster is the better value. My only criticism of BB is the design of their envelopes. I shared your experience of receiving the flap of a BB movie with my address but no envelope or DVD.
