Hello Everyone,

Longtime Rentertainment pal, former ace movie news reporter for the Buzz, and all around great guy, Shadie, has finally set up a blog, "Shades of Grey". Have a look the next time you are surfing the tubes known as the internets. It's an excellent read and if you pay close attention you can almost hear his accent while reading the posts. Keep an eye out for other celebrity guest bloggers as well. While perusing blogs, have a look at my latest favorite bicycling blog: "Bike Snob New York". He hates most things... or maybe he only writes about things he hates. In any case, it's fun. And, since we are plugging blogs, have a look at Fausto Coppi's, the cutest dog in the worlds blog, "The Daily Fausto". Oh, we also got some new movies this week... see below.

Hi-def scorecard: In a surprise move, Walmart discounted the entry-level Toshiba HD player to just below $100 for a one day sale last Friday. Not to be outdone, Best Buy price matched and immediately ran out so they filled orders with the $300 mid-level unit. I'm sure we'll see more price wars like this through the holidays. HD still rules the HiDef roost in these parts -- now up by 23%: we've got 102 HD-DVDs w/111 rentals vs 107 BluRay-DVDs w/90 rentals. Bring on the holidays!

Essential Art House Films Update: We are getting close to the end of my project. Last week's film was François Truffaut's "The 400 Blows". This week's film will be Michelangelo Antonioni's "L'Avventura". 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)
