I think Blockbuster charges more for Blu-Ray rentals. I did one a few months ago and it was like $6 or $7. I started thinking that if it was a movie I wanted, I might as well spned the $25 and buy the thing. Then I started up with Netflix, primarily to stream on my XBOX 360, and decided to spend the $1/month. I've seen more movies on Blu-Ray in the last two months than I have seen at the theaters or on DVD the whole last year. I have yet to have a problem with Netflix Blu-Ray movies being scratched or otherwise not working.
