Hello All,

Mr Ebert (or simply "Roger" to all his friends and that includes about 90% of Champaign-Urbana) has announced the line-up for the 8th Annual Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival. My guess for "The Film Everyone will be Talking About" is "Man Push Cart" followed closely by "U-Carmen e-Khayelitsha". Festival Passes are sold out but individual tickets will become available on April 3. Watch for a special Ebertfest section at Renter next week sometime featuring all the movies Roger (see?) has shown over the years. Watch 'em all so you can hob-nob with the stars! You can check out the list on our front page (and on the Ebertfest web site).

In other news, we finally got "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" -- never before available (except as a lame bootleg) and now in the pristine DVD format with lots of extras. This cult classic rivals "This is Spinal Tap" in that it wasn't even written -- it's real live people before a heavy metal concert. "Tintin et Moi" looks great but is available as PAL only (and, for all you Tintin fans out there, look for three more Tintin DVDs next month). And, on the off chance that you've watched literally every other DVD in the store, we got Pamela Anderson's television series "V.I.P.: Season 1" -- was there a season 2?

It's spring break -- get down here and stake out a parking space for next week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
