While rushing back to Blockbuster to return my movie before midnight, I neglected to take the time to rewind it. However, I noticed that there’s no mention of an obligation to rewind the video on the tape, unlike the days of yore when videos rented (from independant places, mind you) warned of all sorts of fines and charges against those who negelected to rewind. Now granted, I’ve yet to rent another movie, so maybe I have a fifty cent fee waiting for me, but I wonder: Do video stores still require rewinding? If not, why not? Did they find a quicker way to do it? To compete with large chains that don’t require it? Just because rewinding is largely ingrained in us by this time? This was probably the first film I’ve returned in years without rewinding.
