“We are working on rewinding your movie”
I honestly wonder if this is following the recent fad of going backwards. Similar to the resurgence of vinyl records, could Blockbuster be looking at a way to rewind movies by downgrading them to VHS quality? Modern movies have never been seen in that format at all.
Arcade 1UP has been working on this with their nostalgia arcade cabinets - a CRT mode that adds scan lines and re-creates the feel of tech available 30 to 40 years ago. The same could be applied to movies and tv shows.
It would definitely be a novelty that people would talk about for a time. And at the very least, it’s an idea worthy of a parallel reality.
