We see movies that aren't in our 'queue' or aren't recommended for us specifically, but movies that are just there. We struggle to find what we're looking for because the movies could be in about four different places (They have a recommended viewing section that holds the majority of the movies, and then it's sorted by genre). Then, we go up to the counter where a real person is working. We the converse with this person, sharing pleasantries before we give them our PIN, they put the dvd into the empty case, and then we walk out the door to watch our movie.
I remember going to the video store with my mom and always being attracted to the movies I'd already seen. They were safe and familiar and I liked that. I have vivid memories of the strange video store near our house, half video store - half furniture store (what a combo!). I think very few people get their movies this way anymore.
I mean, do you?
