Hello Everyone,

It's a huge week for stuff I've been waiting for: Waitress (Adrienne Shelly's final project starring Keri Russell as a fabulous pie maker), The Namesake (directed by Mira Nair of "Vanity Fair," "Monsoon Wedding," "Mississippi Masala," and "Salaam Bombay!" fame), and Helvetica (a documentary about a very basic font). We also go the critically acclaimed but not available until now 1977 film, "Killer of Sheep". I've got at least a week's worth of stuff to watch... how about you?

Hi-def scorecard: The mother ship is coming. In a move that can only be blamed on insanity I decided to buy every HD and BR disc that we didn't already have. So, by the end of the week look for an additional 70 titles of each to appear on the shelves. But, for now, we've got 113 HD-DVDs w/143 rentals vs 135 BluRay-DVDs w/124 rentals.

Essential Art House Films Update: Seven more films, just over a month left. Last week's film was Ermanno Olmi's "Il Posto". This week's film will be Luis Buñuel's "Viridiana". 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)
