If you can't find a movie at the major chains (we all know them by heart) or you're into movies of a less mainstream appeal....this is the perfect video store for you. Probably the best foreign section in town. I can always find something that is interesting, unique, or that I wanted to see in the theatres but didn't play in Tallahassee's market. The employees are handpicked movie buffs, and usually can direct you to something you will enjoy by asking you for your top three movies of the last year. If you're good at movie trivia you can win a free rental every day of the week - just check the dry-erase board next to the door. They're open late (11pm) and their renatls are reasonably priced.
My only complaint is the organization of the store. I never know how much a video is going to cost to rent until I am paying (I expect new release pricing on the new release walls, but I often get new release pricing for stuff that is in other sections). There's no rhyme or reason to the foreign walls in general (its more or less wherever it fits is where it ends up). However, the staff is friendly and will assist you. They usually know exactly where it is or at least what the cover looks like - and at the busiest times (Friday 9-11pm), they will at least point you in the right direction.

PROS: Rentable movies that you can't find anywhere else in town, great staff
CONS: lack of organization, no way of knowing how much an individual rental is
