Hello Everyone,

We now have the much anticipated "Blade Runner: The Final Cut" on DVD, HD and Blu-Ray. If you are going to buy one for yourself get the cool five-disc briefcase version because... well... it's in a briefcase. According to Video Watchdog magazine, seven different cuts of Blade Runner have been shown to the public. The box set only contain four but that's probably more than enough. Also this week, we've added three more operas to our ever growing opera section (Cosi fan tutte, Falstaff, and Salome), three of the five "Earthed" documentaries (Alex Rankin's dirt bike/mountain biking films), and "Freedom's Fury" -- a documentary about the 1956 Olympic semifinal water polo match between Hungary and Russia (and the Hungarian uprising against the Soviets that was going on at the same time).

Hi-def scorecard: So who got a HiDef player for Christmas? Someone must have because we have a whole stack of discs rented out. Next week's numbers should be even more telling but for now HD is still kicking BRs butt. We now have 206 HD-DVDs w/219 rentals vs 213 BluRay-DVDs w/173 rentals.

Essential Art House Films Update: I've got one week left and three films to watch. Last week's film was Saul J. Turell's "Three Documentaries" (not available except in the box set). This week's films will be Marco Bellocchio's "Fists in the Pocket", Milos Forman's "The Loves of a Blonde", and Victor Erice's "The Spirit of the Beehive"... and that will wrap up this project. If 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)
