New arrivals for the week of January 15, 2008
 

Hello Everyone,

Finally, "Lovejoy" has arrived on DVD!!! Most recently you've seen Ian McShane in Deadwood, We are Marshall and Shrek the Third but he was at his very best as the "loveable rogue and an antiques dealer with an amazing talent for spotting hidden treasures" -- Lovejoy. So far we have seasons one and two but there are seven in all... watch this space. Also out this week, the Criterion release of Monte Hellman's cult classic, "Two-Lane Blacktop". Next week we should have the Eclipse/Criterion box set "Post-War Kurosawa".

In response to getting sucker punched by Warner Brothers last week, Toshiba (king of the HD camp) has decided to slash prices on all of their players... in half! So, now you can get an HD player for as little as $150 -- but you may not be able to get much to watch on it. Not a bad deal, I suppose. However, $325 will get you a low-end Samsung BluRay player that, according to recent reports, may not be compatible with future BluRay discs. Who are the idiots waging this war? Didn't they watch "WarGames" ("The only winning move is not to play")? Well, for now we have about 225 of each format with HD out-renting BluRay by 14.6%.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
