Believe it or not, at one point in time DVDs and VHSs were not delivered in the mail or streamed online via your favorite console.
If you wanted to watch a movie that wasn’t in theaters you had to actually go to a store, interact with the cashier and rent it.
So 2002 I know, but one of the best things about the old way of renting movies was the $1 guaranteed-to-be bad section. They were movies that were so bad that they actually warranted being watched for their wretchedness. Although, it could be argued, 95 percent of the films on Netflix’s instant queue would fit right into that section of awfulness.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl hit theaters in July of 2003. In a summer full of hotly anticipated titles such as Finding Nemo, The Hulk and X2: X-Men United, POTC sneaked under the radar and took the summer by storm. The start of the multi-million dollar franchise, POTC: COBP is a great standalone film, and the best film in the series.
