Hello Everyone,

I doubt we'll ever get a day off school for it, but I'm sure it will be a bank holiday someday -- "Berlin Alexanderplatz" is finally here!!! Remember that Shadie character from last week? He suggested we get Tom Thumb and Waterbabies... so we did. Check out his list of the 204 Essential Films (could this be next year's project?). He's promised me two more lists: a list a films that didn't make the top 204 and his most hated 25 films of all time. Watch this spot. If you've got any lists you want to see on the web send 'em on over. We're not very picky (obviously).

Hi-def scorecard: HD is still winning but the gap is closing -- now up by 16.6%: we've got 107 HD-DVDs w/119 rentals vs 113 BluRay-DVDs w/102 rentals.

Essential Art House Films Update: Nine titles left, even weeks until New Year's -- I've still got a little bit of catching up to do but I'm not panicking... yet. Last week's film was Michelangelo Antonioni's "L'Avventura". This week's film will be Ingmar Bergman's "The Virgin Spring". 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)
