Options To Start With
It’s weird, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be, well… too much. With so many choices of movie titles to choose from you may get overwhelmed. But, if you aren’t sure where to start, you can always ask your local rental store what dvd rental recommendations they may have.
Of course, if you choose to ask for some dvd rental recommendations you obviously don’t have to rent those dvd’s, but it may present you with a place to start.
Some of the bigger stores, or online video rental sites, have thousands of video titles to choose from. Many of them also have hundreds of game titles you can rent as well. So, it can get a little overwhelming.
Personally, if it were me, I would go to the website of some video store. It doesn’t really matter if it is the rental store you will be using or not, unless the titles you want to rent are really obscure, otherwise they should all have the same titles.
From the website you can read reviews and find out more about what the movie is about. This information may help you decide which movies you want to see and which ones you would rather skip.
Another handy feature of these sites is that they will have the movies arranged by genre. In this way you may be able to pick and choose more easily. Also, because of the way the movies are arranged, you may actually be exposed to more titles than you would normally.
Most brick and mortar stores are arranged with the «New Releases» arranged together. They usually aren’t arranged by genre but by their release dates.
That makes it more difficult to find the exact type of movie that you want to see, and it makes it more likely that you will miss out on seeing something you may enjoy just because it isn’t in the new release section of the store.
You also have many choices in where you can actually rent your movies when you do decide which ones you want to rent. There are several online sources where you can decide which videos you want to rent, add them to your list or queue and have them sent to you in the mail.
You can also have the movies streamed directly to your computer or even some brands of t.v.’s if you want to. Most of these online streaming services have a limited number of titles available for streaming though.
Make sure you check with any service to see what they offer and what they don’t. Also, these services will require you to sign up for a subscription before you can rent (though several of them also offer a free trial).
There are usually a few different subscriptions you can get and you will be able to rent more movies during the month with some of the more expensive options of subscriptions.
Anyway, I digress, if you aren’t sure what there is to see or what you want to see, you can always rely on dvd rental recommendations from your local video store or online, it’s up to you.
