You Can Rent Movies on Facebook Now

Man, things just are not looking good for Netflix: Universal is experimenting with movie rentals on Facebook. First foray? The Big Lebowski, which you can rent for 30 Facebook credits—that's $3—right now from the film's fan page.

Hey, why rent "Casablanca," "Gone With the Wind," or "Citizen Kane" when cinema classics like "The Big Lebowski" are available?
Count me in!
Next: "Ishtar," "Battlefield: Earth," and "The Brady Bunch Movie."

How about 'Gigli'?
That Ben Affleck is such a talent.

I wonder if this will take off or not - I've never paid for digital media before, besides with my time watching VEVO ads.

Also, already have this on DVD :D

Looks interesting, but it depends entirely on the cost of said movies.
