Hello Everyone,

Last week it was twenty-five discs worth of "Get Smart", this week it's thirty-eight discs worth of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."-- we'll be watching those for a long time to come in the store. We also, accidentally, added our first "Ernest" movie to inventory (in this one he goes to Africa). I have told everyone that if I ever walk in and it's playing I will snap it in half. On the "too charming for words" front, "Once" came out today, as did "Stardust". And, later this week we'll have the much anticipated "Blade Runner: The Final Cut" on DVD, HD and Blu-Ray. If this isn't the time to go HD I don't know when will be...

Hi-def scorecard: With "Blade Runner" and all the "Harry Potter" films now on both BluRay and HD I think we'll see a spike in high def player sales (do you think it's a coincidence that this happened so close to the holidays?). We are still bringing in the new titles like crazy -- we now have 203 HD-DVDs w/196 rentals vs 210 BluRay-DVDs w/162 rentals.

Essential Art House Films Update: Four more to go... last week's film was Roman Polanski's "Knife in the Water". This week's film will be Saul J. Turell's "Three Documentaries" (not available except in the box set). 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)
