Video stores are almost a thing of antiquity these days, but we still go to Videodrome to find titles that sources like Netflix doesn't have. They really know their films here.

"the bomb." I am a fan of indie films, foreign cinema, and documentaries and this store specializes in all these and more. Videdrome has a definitive collection of hard to find and out of print titles. They have, I would imagine, every title in the Criterion Collection and the staff is very knowledgeable about films and not just some clone drone trying to sell you some sort of package deal to get you take more run of the mill, crap titles that Hollywood seems to churn out more and more of these days. They provide titles that Blockbuster wouldn't rent or touch with a 10 foot pole (due to contreversial content) and also have a great deal of fun and quirky titles that you can't find anywhere else.

Pros: Great Selection, Reasonable Prices

Cons: Limited Parking

If you haven't jumped on Netflix bandwagon yet, and appreciate movies other than latest hollywood blockbusters, I highly recommend checking out Videodrome. They have a fabulous collection of foreign movies (divided by country and director), classics, cult favorites, anime, older horror and thriller flicks, obscure movies, and many new releases from independent companies, foreign, and the like. Everyone who works there so far has been very knowledgeable, somewhat of a movie geek, and usually can give suggestions and reviews if you're interested. At the same time they are laid-back, not patronizing or snobby.

PROS: Great selection, great service
CONS: well-known new releases are frequently out

I personally am tired of lines, bad service, and tired selection at Blockbuster. Not to mention their Puritan and very PC collection. Or the chill that goes down my spine when I hear someone utter, "Hey look, they still have a copy of Miss Congeniality 2!", or "I don't watch movies with subtitles." Videodrome has none of these problems. They have a great selection, including the staple independent films, foreign releases, cult flicks, classics, and even some more obscure flicks (japanese cyberpunk, etc.). They have a good Anime selection for rent, which is also pretty hard to find. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the product. For being a largely independent movie rental joint, you also don't get the impression that people are gauging your "indieness" while you are there. Unlike, for instance, Movies Worth Seeing. Anyway, its worth checking out...and not just because you are tired of blockbuster.

Cons: New Releases go fast

I've gone to Blockbuster and had people not know who David Lynch is, I've gone to Movies Worth Seeing and gotten the impression I'm inconveniencing people by trying to rent a movie. The guys at Videodrome have opinions I respect and seek out, and don't make a career out of being hipper than everyone.

Pros: parking, close to snacks

This shop has such a weird and quirky vibe, but they have a pretty good selection of videos. I like the fact that they group movies in less obvious ways than just genre--like grouping them by director.
