Hello Everyone,

My pick of the week is "The Flying Scotsman" -- no, not the one about the train from 1929 but the 2006 one about Graeme Obree -- two time winner of the incredibly grueling hour record (using a home-made bike constructed from old BMX frames and washing machine parts). A truly inspirational story of an amateur bike racer with a huge dream. Not just for cycling fans!

Hi-def scorecard: We are just over two months into our High-Def contest and this week BluRay has tied the score -- 67 HD-DVDs w/39 rentals vs 67 BluRay-DVDs w/39 rentals. Also, today is the first time we've had a title ("We Are Marshall") on all three formats on the very same day -- on your mark, get set, GO!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Ingmar Bergman's "Wild Strawberries". This week's film would have been Andrzej Wajda's "Ashes and Diamonds" except that I watched it the very first week (when I was going to do this in alphabetical order) so instead it's Sergei Eisenstein's "Ivan the Terrible, Part II". 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)
