A very long-winded and repetitive doc.

I was really hoping for more substance to this. The nostalgia trips from the various talking heads became super repetitive and a little annoying by around the halfway Mark. I wanted to see a LOT more company history, financials, screwups, etc., but those topics were very brief and glossed-over. For the amount of content, this could've been a 30 minute documentary. I love the story of the Bend location, but I wanted more than that.

Pretty corny

They called this a documentary, so I would have liked to see an informative movie about the rise and fall of an iconic American company. Instead, it's more like a long version of that old show 'I love the 90's.' Talking heads cracking bad jokes and an over enthusiastic narrator who sometimes pretends to be in the room asking people questions (though I doubt that is the fault of Lauren Lapkus.) The stuff with the family who runs the last store is good though. The whole thing just came across as a little cheesy and not very serious, which would be fine, just label it as such. It's worth watching, even though you might find yourself doing something else while it plays in the background.

Laziest Doc Ever

What could have been an interesting documentary into the workings of a video store, the hostile takeovers of independent stores, mismanagement ... literally anything of substance ... is reduced to a 10-minute segment of the business itself. There is zero research and slight allusions to what went down, with this once-juggernaut. Instead, be prepared for 80 minutes of C-list, annoying celebrities telling the same story over and over and over again, for forced nostalgia ... walking wide-eyed like they've seen the second coming of Christ. We get it - the place smells like popcorn and you used to rent movies so you could make out with your teenage dates. I also want to point out, oddly enough, no mention of their video game selection. That would have been an amazing parallel to the current GameStop fiasco. This is a horrible, repetitive waste of time.
