    Too late, too late will be the cry when the man with the VHS tape has passed you by. 

    Be kind, rewind.

    It was YOU! You put them out of business.

    I liked that movie when it came out, but I watched it recently and for some reason all the characters annoyed the crap out of me and I didn’t like it at all.
    Snatch was a much better movie afaic.
    I would say that Sting should stick to the music, but I don’t rate him at that either.

      too many of Richie’s characters were over-tuned. All had a short watchability half-life.

        His Sherlock movies already don’t age well

        (Not that they were even much great shakes to begin with)

      Yeah, the rental copies cost that much – they don’t the huge “cannot be rented” warnings written on the back like consumer DVDs do to this day.

    I couldn’t watch it.
    I hated Vinnie Jones and the Wimbledon ’88 cup final team and always will.

    End of an era, quite sad really I loved the ritual of going to the video club ever since I was a kid….
    Oh well

      Was listening to the radio earlier, and one of the presenters recommended listeners rented a particular movie (semi-obscure). Then they realized – how? If it’s not on poxy Neflix, you’re screwed.

      We’ll miss Xtravision yet.
