There's Now Only One Blockbuster Left, But It Refuses To Give Up

We've all known for a while that Blockbuster was basically a lost cause. Most Blockbuster locations closed down many years ago, leaving behind their empty buildings that look like they house all the ghosts of the 90s. However there is one place while Blockbuster Video seemed to refuse to die. There were six locations remaining in Alaska, and one in Bend, Oregon, but this weekend marks a sad moment. All of the Alaskan Blockbusters have been officially closed. Four had actually been closed earlier in the year, but this weekend the final two locations closed their doors for good. But

There is so much about this movie that is amazing, and while Marty McFly may be the star, I think we can all agree that Doc Brown will always hold a special place in our hearts.As it turns out, Doc Brown is also beloved by the actor who played him.

Libraries Have Started Hosting Bob Ross Paint-Alongs, But You Might Wait Months To Get In

If there is one person that we can all agree is a genuinely delightful person, it would be Bob Ross. Every single word out of his mouth feels like it's designed specifically to relax you, and every single piece of art he created was unbelievably amazing. Everyone who has watched his show on PBS knows that he would start by slapping down a layer of liquid white, and then start applying paint in seemingly random areas. A little here, a little there, and then suddenly he's got this gorgeous landscape scene with a mountain, some fluffy clouds, and of course

'Big' Is Celebrating Their 30th Anniversary By Heading Back To Theaters

Big is one of those movies that no matter how ridiculous the plot seems, we all still love it. It is beloved by critics and fans alike, and to this day we all are obsessed with it. The Tom Hanks comedy manages to make a movie about a kid who turned into an adult overnight seem like it's almost realistic. You feel like Josh could be a real guy, and you really want him to find that Zoltar machine. It has been 30 years since the release of the classic movie, and to celebrate the anniversary, it's coming back to

You'll Soon Be Able To Get 'The Baby-Sitter's Club' With Their Original Covers

There are a few books that just scream childhood. Sweet Valley High was always a staple, Goosebumps were basically required reading, and then of course The Baby-Sitter's Club was crucial. There were always new adventures for The Baby-Sitter's Club to go on, but obviously we all had our favorites. Rumors started swirling about a new Baby-Sitter's Club TV show a little while ago, and while we were excited about it, there's something just extra special about the original books. Luckily for us, Scholastic realized this and has decided to make something for those of us who are feeling a little

Alleged 'Mortal Kombat' Reboot Character List Gets Leaked, Throwing Fans Into A Panic

The movie Mortal Kombat was a pretty exciting thing back in the day. While it's pretty popular for movies to be made out of video games now, back in the 90s it was all still new. The thing was, the movie didn't turn out as great as everyone expected. Critics hated it, and fans weren't completely sold on it either. While it made a decent amount of money, they kind of pushed their luck and made a sequel, seemingly killing the franchise. But it seems as though enough time has passed, and Warner Bros. and New Line are ready to

5 Bizarre Examples That Prove Just How Real 'Satanic Panic' Was In The '80s

It seemed like there was no decade more possessed by the devil than the 80s. Well, that's what the media wanted you to believe. If you were alive in the 80s, you absolutely remember hearing that everything and anything was run by the Satanists. Whether it was cartoons, musicians, or even diaper companies, everyone was on high alert. You might think I'm kidding, but it's absolutely true. People everywhere were convinced that the devil worshiping cult was trying to force them into doing his bidding. These were the most bizarre instances of that conspiracy. 1.

Alan Ruck Opens Up About What It Was Really Like To Be Ferris Bueller's Best Friend

Most of us remember the first time we saw Ferris Bueller's Day Off and became completely fascinated by the charm and charisma that Ferris possessed. That guy could do anything he wanted to and convince anyone to do anything. Seriously, he could really be dangerous if he wanted to be. He's the kind of person who could start a cult and you wouldn't even realize you were in it until 15 years later. But it wasn't just Ferris that we all enjoyed, it was the people Ferris surrounded himself with. First of all there was his girlfriend Sloan, who was

Are Your Old Pogs Actually Worth As Much As People Claim?

People like to look back at their childhood and think about all the cool stuff they had. We all collected Beanie Babies, Pokemon Cards, Polly Pockets, and more, but one of the weirdest obsessions we all had was the Pog craze. Pogs were perhaps one of the most popular toys (if you could really call them that) of the 90s. They were basically little cardboard disks that had pictures on them, and the point of them was to collect as many as you could, trade them with your friends, and maybe compete for more using your "Slammer". A lot of
