One of the more interesting parts of Netflix becoming one of the most disruptive studios in Hollywood is that, from the outside, there’s no real way to measure just how successful any of its movies or series are, because the company doesn’t release comprehensive data about what subscribers watch.

From Netflix’s perspective, though, more transparency doesn’t seem to be all that much of a concern. And frankly, all things considered, the company is right not to care.

Audiences will lineup this weekend to check out the ‘90s nostalgia trip of Captain Marvel. Younger viewers will look at the Blockbuster Video Store featured in the film and have little understanding of what kind of business they’re looking at.

That’s because, at the same time, the staff of the last Blockbuster in Australia will be winding down the business and shuttering the store — leaving just one final location of the venerable franchise left on Earth.

Listen, I’m not here to argue about whether the 2004 film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel The Notebook starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling is or is not a good film. But to trim the last minute of the movie and swap in a comparatively dispassionate prelude to credits starring a flock of birds seems like, you know, kind of a bummer.
