Some of these look really cool, and I'll be checking to see which of these come up on my Blockbuster @ Home movie package.  I got DISH and BB @ Home earlier this year, and with over 100,000 movies, games and TV shows I am never without something cool, new or classic to watch.  A DISH coworker told me that I can stream live, exchange at a BB store or get titles by-mail, and there are never any late fees.  It's broken down extremely well by genre, title, time period and more, and makes for a fun, cozy evening at home!
