If you’re looking for more articles about online movie rentals, you’ve come to the right place. This section discusses several of the leading options for moviegoers who’ve grown tired of loud talkers and obnoxious texters in the theatre. By watching movies at home, you can control your environment and never worry about having your evening spoiled by someone whose parents didn’t teach them manners.

Once you’ve finished reading these articles, I suggest you swing by the Only Good Movies blog. The bulk of our content is located there, and new posts are added on a regular basis. There’s a little something for everyone, like articles about movie theatres coupons and the greatest films from various genres.

Blockbuster Online Movie Rentals – Once upon a time, Blockbuster was the leading name in movie rentals. That’s no longer the case, as the rise of Netflix–as well as Blockbuster’s money-grubbing attitude towards customers–led to their slow decline. Thousands of brick-and-mortar stores have shut their doors in recent years, but the company is still trying to make a go of it online. If you’re looking for an alternative to Netflix, you may want to give Blockbuster a chance.

iReel Movie Rentals – iReel offers an entirely online experience, with members selecting from their library of films and then instantly streaming them. They have thousands of titles to choose from, and they support viewing on Mac and Android. They also offer a free trial membership for 5 days, so you can experience what iReel has to offer without any additional commitments.

Netflix Movie Rentals – When it comes to renting movies online, Netflix is the king. Despite a number of corporate moves that have angered customers, the company remains the best-known brand in the business. Customers can choose to watch movies online, or they can have titles delivered to their mailbox. There are never any late fees, and you can sign up for a one month free trial membership to sample their goods. I’ve been a customer since 2005, and I’ve never had any major complaints.

Redbox Movie Rentals – Redbox is the name of those red kiosks you’ve seen outside businesses like Wal-Mart and Walgreen’s. You can go online, reserve your movie, and then show up at a kiosk and get your entertainment for the evening. Or, you can just get a film right at the machine (as long as you have a credit card). Titles are cheap to rent, and they have all the latest releases. If you do a lot of shopping, Redbox may be a perfect option.

GameFly Video Game Rentals – The #1 video game rental service in America, GameFly lets customers choose from over 8,000 console games. They have titles from PS3, PS Vista, Wii, Xbox 360, and many more. You can also choose to buy games or download the latest PC titles. It’s like heaven for video game geeks.
