Competition has been pretty tough locally for the top spot on the video rental list. There was no clear-cut winner, but the guy with all those scissors came pretty close. Here are the top five most popular videos at three local stores:
At Blockbuster Video in Port Hueneme: "Edward Scissorhands," "Look Who's Talking Too," "GoodFellas" and, thanks to their recently released sequels, "Terminator" and "Naked Gun."
At Giant Video in Santa Paula: "Kindergarten Cop," "Edward Scissorhands," "Three Men and a Little Lady," "Look Who's Talking Too" and "GoodFellas."
And at Plaza Video in Ventura: "GoodFellas," "Edward Scissorhands," "Green Card," "Kindergarten Cop" and "Predator II."
The Ventura County Film Commission, still struggling to get off the ground, recently went through a nearly complete turnover of staff. Most notably, it now has a new second-in-command. Gone is Karen Wolfe as the main spokesperson and in her place is Michael Larroque.
