Hello Everyone,

This week we got the new 5-film Brigitte Bardot box set, "Rome: Season 2", more "Foyle's War" and another excellent BBC cop show, "Murder in Suburbia" (season 2 should be here next week). Also, "300" came in on both BluRay and HD-DVD.

Illini 4000 update: The show is over, the credits have rolled and the Illini 4000 have now left the building. Twelve weeks and over 4300 miles -- all for a good cause. Check out their web page (www.illini4000.org) for their stories, pictures and to help with donations. Maybe they'll even update the site soon to let us know how things turned out...

Hi-def update: We are now up to 50 HD-DVDs and 49 BluRay-DVDs -- more keep coming in weekly! HD rentals at Renter are triple BR rentals but even so it's only 12 vs 4 -- not much of a sample. In answer to some commonly asked questions: 1) you do need a special player to play HD and BR, 2) they are different machines but soon they will make one that plays both HD and BR (all machines play regular DVDs), 3) you can get a drive for your computer but chances are you don't have one, and 4) I would wait until the end of the year to buy anything.

Essential Art House Films Update: I'm trying to play catch up so last week I watched two films: Henri-Georges Clouzot's "Wages of Fear" and Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". This week's film will be Federico Fellini's "La Strada". In case you are interested, the latest review is always on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
