A fan of local stores over big chains I prefer to get my movies at Rocket Video, and think their membership plan is great for people who still go in and search for a movie instead of using Netflix. The range and selection at Rocket, from the sheer size and scope of their collection, including MANY rare and international films, is beyond impressive, but sadly word has gotten out about this location so sometimes finding what you want in stock is difficult. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly - this is where movie loves go, but not to BUY movies since those are over priced (to keep this indie store afloat though, no doubt, so at least you know you're supporting a good cause if you're overpaying, which is rare).

PROS: Great selection!
CONS:

This video rental store is pretty cool. The employees here are very friendly, nice and helpful. They have all the classic movies I like that most video stores don't carry. The rental prices is cheap! All the movies are very easy to find, great selections too. Parking is always available.

Rocket Video has all the videos you can't find at Blockbuster. They give you personal service, too. So, if you want anything, just ask. They almost always have it -- or know where you can get it. We have been renting from there for about 3 years. We are very happy with the prices and the service. Lots of metered street parking right in front, too.

PROS: they have all the hard to find videos
CONS: none

The best part about Rocket Video is the staff. These aren't teenagers coasting through a part-time job, these are career video clerks. They are interesting to talk to and observe. Ask them for a recommendation and you will be sure to get some crazy movie you've never heard of before. Prices are cheaper than Blockbuster!

This store is pretty good on the selection. It sort of leaves something to be desired when compared to some of the finer selections in LA but it does quite well when compared to a Blockbuster or Hollywood (but who wouldn't?). It actually has a quer cinema section which is different, so, perhaps beneficial. Seems to cater more to the horror/schlock lover than the film lover. A good store none-the-less. It's only a one day rental, though (for 2.50 after you've paid 20 or 30... can't remember... for the membership). Don't know if I recommend it.
