Hello Everyone,

I'm not exactly sure how this happened, but last week we got three Barney videos (yes, that Barney -- the big purple dinosaur). I imagine it's my distributor playing a joke on me. Good one, Tony. I imagine if The Transformers and Barney were paired up in a cage match he'd get what was coming to him! Of note this week is the wacky 70s psychedelic western "Zachariah", the wacky 60s spoof of all things spoofable, "The Magic Christian", and the 1999 documentary "The Last Cigarette" previously only available on VHS.

Hi-def scorecard: Mid-October has BluRay making a rapid comeback. We've now got 80 HD-DVDs w/77 rentals vs 86 BluRay-DVDs w/72 rentals. HD is only up by 7% -- I bet we're nose-to-nose next week...

Essential Art House Films Update: Somewhere along the way I've gotten lazy. I did some calcucating the other day and it seems I have 15 films left and only 12 weeks to watch them in. I've got to do double duty for a few weeks here! This week's (first) film is Kon Ichikawa' "Fires on the Plain". Last week's film was Marcel Camus' "Black Orpeus". 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 day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
