Best Reason to Stay Away from Blockbuster: Videodrome

Staff Pick

Don’t let some nationwide chain — or your Netflix queue — dictate which films you check out next. If you really want to broaden your horizons, head to VIDEODROME. Like some kind of bizarro-world version of Blockbuster, here it’s the “mainstream” films that get pushed into the back corner. Tarantino himself would be impressed by its Shaw Brothers section, and nearby shelves are exclusively dedicated to the finest in Hong Kong, Korean, German and Russian cinema. It also has a stand-up comedy section with every special Eddie Izzard has ever recorded. That alone is reason to stop by. It’s also probably the only place in town you’ll find Dementia 13 (a cheapo, B-movie horror flick that happens to mark the directorial debut of one Francis Ford Coppola) sitting right next to The Godfather trilogy.
