Hello Everyone,

Film Noir seems the be the name of game lately -- a few weeks ago we got Warner's excellent 4th volume of their "Film Noir Classics Collection" (10 titles) and this week brings the first of two Hammer Studio's "Film Noir Double Feature" box sets (set two should be here soon with six titles per set). Also in this week, David Lynch's newest film ("Inland Empire"), a documentary about the Lost Boys of Sudan ("God Grew Tired of Us" -- and, if you haven't already, you should read David Eggers' book "What is the What"), and a documentary about Barry Goldwater ("Mr Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater").

Hi-def update: We now have 56 HD-DVDs (with 18 rentals) and 57 BluRay-DVDs (with 7 rentals). I've just read a few articles that re-enforce the notion that one should wait until December to buy anything. There will be a few dual-format (HD+BR) available then for under $500 and the prices of each formats machine should have dropped considerably as well (in fact, one article pointed out that you should be able to buy two machines, one for each format, for less than the cost of a single dual-format machine). So, as enticing as TMNT is on BluRay -- I'd wait...

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Federico Fellini's "La Strada". This week's film will be Laurence Olivier's "Richard III". 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)
