DVD Movies Vending Machine

I saw something I've never seen before in my life the other day. It was a vending machine, not just any ordinary vending machine that spits out drinks or junk foods...

...but a dvd movies vending machine! Have you ever seen one of these? I think its a great idea, renting dvd movies at your own leisure, don't have to put up with rude store assistants and you can do it 24 hours a day!

You don't need to sign up as a member, all you need is a credit card. Just swipe your card, choose the movies you want and it'll spit out the movies for you! And when you return them the next day, just swipe your credit card again so they don't keep charging you on a daily basis. According to their website there's only 3 of these vending machines in operation in Melbourne so I guess they may be trial-running this new concept.

They do have quite a large selections of latest release movies and the price is almost the same as a regular video store. So would I use it, I probably would if I don't have a video store where I live coz I like to deal with a real person so I can hurl abuse at the store assistant if I wasn't happy!


And look! They even have adult movies but they wouldn't display the pictures though! Damn! How would I know if the movies are good or not without seeing who's in them or what kind of actions I'm likely to see!

We have those in Britain as well. I rather head to the local Blockbusters, cheaper and more choices.

Pirated dvds here only costs between RM5 to RM7 each. Very good & clear with all the extra dvd bits as long as u r willing to wait for the original version to be released in U.S.
Personally, I never bought those unclear cinema version of latest Top 10 movies - no difference in price :)

jon: i can imagine this concept isn't original here & yeah, i'm like you who rather go to the store for my videos.

amelia: yes i know, everytime someone goes back to sibu/malaysia i would ask them to get for me! too expensive here to rent dvd..:(

robin: all of them! i'm exhausted now...just kidding, none. i don't think they r xxx just soft porn maybe.

Why wud u need to see who's acting in adult movies? U won't get to see the rest of their bodies anyway! Gee! I'd love those vending machines! Can buy ANY kind of movie and face the embarassment of having to pay to the SYT at the counter!

Wuching said...

suituapui: i like to see who's in it bah..but ur right, its a good way of getting porn but this is for rental only wor!

Alex Allied said...

personally, I don't like those angmo porno, their storyline sucks and the action is dull. Still prefer Asian ones kekekekeke.

Wuching said...

alex allied: i'm totally different from you! i prefer the other way around! hahahaha!

i think the vending machines are a good idea, especially for porn - you can avoid the embarrassment of having to enquire about it at the counter...

as for which porn is better, i don't really mind either asian or ang moh, as long as the girl is sweet and good looking ;)

Che-Cheh said...

What an eye-opening.

Hmmm so do you guys get embarass when buying condoms at the counter ? :-P

Wuching said...

jeremy: mmm...jenna jamieson...

che-cheh: of course we r embarrassed! that's why we don't like using condoms! lol!

suituapui said...

Answer to che-cheh: Buy condom, no? Shows we're active! Buy sanitary pads 4 wide, yes! SYT (sweet young thing) cashier wud wonder why? So far, none dared 2 ask! I wud answer to cover face during hazy, heavily polluted days!

Jeremy C said...

che-cheh : muahaha...that one not so embarrassing compared to porn... :P

yvy said...

haha!! wei, i think hor...psycho love sure syiok wan!!! lol :P anyway, some men so paisey to buy pad why? no big deal wat...aiyoo.
