July 11, 2021 - Maxwell Street Days

Hello Video Angels,

We want all of you to be aware that we will have a booth at Maxwell Street Days next week, which runs from Thursday the 15th to Sunday the 18th. Maxwell Street Days will be open from 9am to 6pm the first three days, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

We’ll be selling used DVDs at our usual Buy One Get One free rates. We have a lot of interesting titles going out for sale this year, so stop by and say hello!

We also would like to let everyone know that we will be suspending the 6pm to 7pm pickup window on Thursday the 15th, but the store will be open noon to 7pm for browsing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The 6pm to 7pm Thursday pickup window will return Thursday the 22nd.

See you next weekend,

June 20, 2021 - New Hours Starting 6/21

Hello Video Angels,
We’re very happy to announce that starting tomorrow, June 21st, we’ll be expanding in-store browsing as well as loosening some of the restrictions we’ve had in place for the last year. We’ll now have in-store browsing from noon until 7pm Friday through Wednesday, while still offering curbside pickup anytime during those hours. On Thursdays, we’ll still be offering curbside pickup only from 6pm to 7pm, as well as delivery on Fridays. 

We’ll also be upping the capacity to 5 customers at a time instead of 1 customer/household at a time. Customers will no longer be required to set aside items from browsing to be sanitized, but we will still sanitize all returned rentals. All customers will still be required to wear a mask to enter. 

If you have any questions or feedback about these policies, please let us know.

May 26, 2021 - Mask Policy as of June 2nd

Hello Video Angels,
We want to let you all know that our current policies regarding wearing masks in the store will remain the same next week after the suspension of the mask order in Dane county for vaccinated individuals on June 2nd. That is, masks will still be required for all customers while they are in the store. We would rather apply the same policy to all customers rather than be put in the position of trying to determine which of our customers are vaccinated and which aren’t. We will monitor the number of new Covid-19 cases in Dane county as well as vaccination rates and update our policies accordingly.

Thank you,
Four Star Video

Staff Picks

Amber says:
A stylish psychological mystery that explores the world of a New York city prostitute named Bree Daniels (a stunning Jane Fonda!) and her role in the disappearance of a missing man. Donald Sutherland plays John Klute, a small-town private detective hired to find out what happened. As a string of murders in Bree’s world come closer and closer to Bree herself, she embarks upon a genuine relationship with Klute and a bond starts to grow between them. Part love story and part taut thriller, Klute is a spellbinder that I highly recommend!

Hanna says:
Let's get these teen hearts beating faster, faster... Twisted mystery/drama reminiscent of David Lynch's Blue Velvet (released the same year and also starring Dennis Hopper), River's Edge takes you through the nine circles of teen hell. Killer soundtrack (Slayer, The Wipers, Agent Orange etc.) and Keanu Reeves wearing a denim vest over a leather jacket over a tie dye t-shirt.

Jason says:
a boy without sauce is a boy who is lost, but that same boy can get lost in the sauce...

Laura says:
"Return to Me" is not your typical rom-com, which is exactly why I adore it. It stars the unlikely romantic lead David Duchovny, who at the time was best known for playing the brooding X-Files' Agent Mulder. It got my attention when it was released in 2000 because it was Chicagoan Bonnie Hunt's latest project, who was having a genuine "moment" as actress-writer-director-Late Show with David Letterman regular. The unexpected chemistry between Duchovny and Minnie Driver hooked me, and the incredible supporting cast including Carol O'Connor, Robert Loggia, David Allen Grier, Jim Belushi, Hunt, and the City of Chicago itself sealed the deal. The nostalgic soundtrack still sticks with me, and as an extra special side note, it was O'Connor's final film.

Lewis says:
Maybe the trolls should stop feeding us...

Robert says:
A campy, outrageous satire of slasher movie conventions produced by Roger Corman. This movie is set in a bizarre Californian alternate reality where teenagers are visibly adults, reality and hallucinations merge, and guitars are instruments of murder. Gets off to a slow start, but the last 20 minutes make the experience worth it
