In celebration of this year's Oscars, Blockbuster.co.uk have launched Browse by Year which allows visitors to browse virtually their entire DVD movie collection by production year rather than DVD release date so movie fans can find all their favourites from the world of film by the year of original cinema release.
With around hundred years of film now available on DVD via the internet, finding what we are looking for is not as easy as it should be. Blockbuster.co.uk has recognised this so they have provided a comprehensive simple and easy to use catalogue of all their currently available DVD Movies which have been organised by year within decade. Better still, the year is based on the movie production year, not the DVD release date, great for nostalgia visits to the past such as 1960 movies where you can browse by year in a decade bursting with spy flicks, historical epics and in-your-face-spaghetti westerns.
Visitors can browse back through every year of the last five decades of cinema and then through the decades to the dawn of film. So whether you are looking for Charlie Chaplin Movies or the latest Hollywood blockbuster from Tom Cruise, this innovative new area of Blockbuster.co.uk offers something for everyone.
This new feature also means that questions about movies produced in the year you were born or for the years you were at college can now be easily answered. In addition you can also sort through all of Blockbuster's DVD movies by Actor or Director; there are many ways to search for the DVD for your great night in.
Rest assured that Blockbuster.co.uk are not just relying on the past to satisfy their customers, they have a huge range of DVDs for rent including all of the latest new DVD releases.
You do not have to be a member to access the DVD catalogue, but once you find some classic DVD movies, including all of the previous Best Picture winners, you are sure to want to sign up for a membership. Blockbuster.co.uk offer online DVD rentals to your door from only £4.99 a month, unlimited rentals from just £9.99 a month!
