I was recommended this store by a college professor for a Latin American history course. I went there and got my fill of Brazilian movies. 10 years later, I'm obsessed with Hong Kong action films, so I decided to go find this place in the Highlands. I'd almost given up looking when I kept north and finally saw it on the right. What a joy it was to find it. I went in and started looking around. The lady asked what I was looking for and I told her the name of the director somewhat mixed up, she knew exactly who I was talking about and took me right there. Amazing! Getting a card was easy (no major credit card or utility bill or any of that crap) and the price was surprisingly low!
The selection is intense. THis place is great.

PROS: real selection, great prices new or used, staff knows their stuff
CONS:

This place is amazing. I feel like I received a cinematic education by coming here and just browsing the shelves, renting movies that I had never seen on a video store's shelf before. An incredible selection of foreign movies, music videos (all of the PALM Director's Series), VHS... They also carry mainstream new releases, so if you want to watch "Garden State" AND Ingmar Bergman's whole collection, you can do that. The staff generally don't offer help, but if you approach them, they will gladly assist you in finding or recommending. I actually moved away from Atlanta one year ago, but I think about this place all the time. Seriously.

i havent stepped foot in any other movie rental store in years. rentals are under $4, they have all the latest foreign releases and huge catalog of older movies. also a lot of documentaries if you are into that. guaranteed you'll find something to rent. say goodbye to blockbuster!

Pros: # of foreign films, # of older films

Cons: none

Don't go here if you're looking for the recent hollywood blockbusters. Instead, they sepecialize in obscure, old and recently imported features that are hard to find elsewhere. the late fees can be harsh, but its worth it to stay away from another vin diesel movie.

Cheaper than Blockbuster and has a much better selection. I go here to get the hard to find movies. Their selection includes
foriegn, indie, B, oldies, new releases and more. The rental
policy is great and the staff is always dead on with their recommendations.

This place has movies I have wanted to see for years but could not find or did not want to pay the price for buying. I kept moving three feet down the isles, stopping, giggling like a child, picking up a movie, repeat...

Arrangement is slightly odd, but makes perfect sense for finding multiple movies for the same genre. Good rental policy. Good hours. Wish it wasn't 25 minutes away in the Highlands.

Movies Worth Seeing has been updating its DVD collection to include new releases as well as old favorites. The DVDs go fast, but come here often and you'll find what you want on the floor. This is one of those stores where you never run out of great movie options, and it's cheaper than Blockbuster!

If you start renting here, chances are youll leave Blockbuster forever. The movies are organized by decade, director and genre, so youll often chance upon something new that interests you. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about film; its almost a given that when I go to the counter with a movie, the employee has a recommendation based on my choice. And just because this store has a discriminating selection doesnt mean you can only rent artsy flicks. Ive rented everything from Legally Blonde to The Last Picture Show here.
