For me a blind buy is not having an idea what to expect.

An impulse buy is buying something that I know about, but shouldn't (as it's too expensive etc), but think sod it!

Yeah,

A Blind Buy - buying movies I haven't seen yet and have no idea if I'll regret it or not (more times than not I don't regret it). Example: Children of Men, Dreamgirls, and Harsh Times are pre-ordered but I haven't seen them yet.

An Impulse Buy - buying movies at that moment when I wasn't planning on it, and I may not think it's the greatest. Example: Hulk wasn't one of my first choices, I've seen it, and I heard amazing things about the PQ. So standing at BB not planning on buying anything I grabbed it and a couple other titles.

I think Iggy's got it right. That's pretty well the definitions I use.
