‘The Last Blockbuster’: Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman Gets Brutally Honest and Annihilates Blockbuster In This Exclusive Clip

Many of us grew up with Blockbuster Video being our main source of weekend entertainment. Prior to streaming – and even DVD and Blu-ray – theatrical releases went straight to video, and Blockbuster Video had its own “rental window” before a consumer could buy their own copy of their favorite movies. While the thought of Blockbuster does fill our tummies with warm nostalgic butterflies, it was actually a malevolent entity that controlled a huge portion of the entertainment space. Troma‘s Lloyd Kaufman was not a fan, and rightfully so.

I’ll get back to that in a second.

Blockbuster died a horrible death at the hands of Netflix, but one store has remained open through the complete annihilation of the video store, and it’s located in Bend, Oregon.  Fittingly, the store is known as “The Last Blockbuster.”

That final remaining Blockbuster store in the world will be profiled in the documentary The Last Blockbuster, which has adjusted its tracking and is available for rental or purchase on December 15th.

We have an exclusive clip from Taylor Morden‘s documentary, which features interviews with Adam Brody (“The O.C.”, Jennifer’s Body), Ione Skye (Say Anything, River’s Edge), Doug Benson (“Getting Doug with High”, The Lego Batman Movie), Paul Scheer (“The League”, “Veep”) and director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob).

Troma founder and The Toxic Avenger co-director/creator Lloyd Kaufman was also interviewed and shared his brutally honest thoughts on the once-monopolizing rental chain.

In this exclusive clip, Kaufman jokes that Blockbuster would carry 500 copies of Suicide Squad but zero of any Troma films (a sort of fun dig considering Suicide Squad director James Gunn got his start with Troma). Kaufman is relentless in this footage, calling people in the entertainment industry the “scum of the Earth” and explaining how he’d have to go to Texas to try and get these “rude” Blockbuster execs with “no respect” to pick up Troma films for the entire chain.

For those who had Troma available in their Blockbuster, it was because those were franchises with owners who respected the brand, he explains.

Check this whopper of a clip out and tell us about your Blockbuster memories and experiences below.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
