Check out all the major entertainment stories of the week right here. I’ve created a list of quick and easy-to-read snippets of everything worth knowing in celebrity news.
We recently introduced two new features to the Blockbuster Total Access Queue. Our users have been clamoring for these options, and we think they’re pretty handy. Read More
If you’re anything like me, your movie Queue is 60% movies you want to watch, 20% movies your significant other wants to watch, 10% movies you both want to watch, and 10% movies you feel smarter for having in your Queue. With those odds, it’s not every day you have a movie at home that you are both psyched to see. This is my current state of affairs. For the past two weeks, our coffee table has been the resting place for The Help and Death Wish 3. I think it’s fairly obvious whose pick is whose. I really want to watch my movie, and my husband really wants to watch his, but we’ve been married long enough to know neither of us is willing to sit pleasantly through two hours of the other’s choice. This leads me to today’s topic: movies you won’t have to bribe your other half to watch with you. Read More
If you like cute doggie pics; Gary Oldman; movies about debauchery; or news about called-off marriages, read on. All of those things top our list of entertainment news of the week.
These are movies that share the same name but aren’t remakes of the same film. I realized the confusion this causes after a DVR incident of recording the wrong film with the same name last week.

Like I’ve said before, I can’t get enough of entertainment news and celebrity gossip, so I’ve compiled a list, highlighting the seedy, sappy and surprising movie-related news of the week.
I’m really excited to introduce Blockbuster’s new account on Pinterest! For those of you who have only gone so far as to try to pronounce Pinterest, let me explain a bit about it.
Pinterest is an incredibly popular and fast-growing social networking site that allows you to save and share your favorite things on virtual pinboards. You can have as many or as few collections as you like. I’ve found everything from simple do-it-yourself craft ideas to iPhone gadgets to Motorcycle Dog. My favorite categories include easy recipes, fashion, and household tips. It’s fun to discover and follow people with similar tastes and see who repins and “likes” your stuff back.
The Blockbuster collections are inspired by movies, games, television and the complete entertainment experience. We want to share cinematic history, viewing suggestions, home entertainment ideas, snacks for TV watching, and more. Let us know what you think in the comments below. What would you like us to share?
