Hello Everyone,

It's a quadruple header for Criterion this week with Breathless, Days of Heaven, Martha Graham: Dance on Film and Under the Volcano all getting the fancy treatment. Don't forget, Criterion is releasing the seven disc "Berlin Alexanderplatz" in three weeks -- clear your calendars and load up on snack foods because it clocks in at almost 16 hours! On the TV front we got the final episodes of "The Soprano's" in but for some reason didn't get the latest entries in "The L Word" or "Veronica Mars" -- look for them in a couple of days. Sorry. Do you have a PAL player? Watch "Life on Mars" -- we have seasons 1 and 2 and they are both great!

Hi-def scorecard: HD has hit the 1 to 1 benchmark! We've now got 90 HD-DVDs w/91 rentals vs 98 BluRay-DVDs w/77 rentals. We are now entering the crazy holiday release schedule so watch for stacks and stacks of new arrivals to drop weekly. But, as I've said before, I'd wait for the dual format players to drop in price before buying anything (unless, of course, you can get a great deal on one or the other).

Essential Art House Films Update: I'm slowly getting caught up on my project. My other resolutions (not eating at national fast food chains and riding my bike everywhere I can) are going much better. In any case, last week's film was Kon Ichikawa's "Fires on the Plain". This week's films will be Yasujiro Ozu's "Floating Weeds". 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)
