New arrivals for the week of January 29, 2008
 

Hello Everyone,

"Punky Brewster"? Really? Yup, that's what happens when I let someone else do the ordering. We have three seasons so far and Jenn says there are two more coming. Pat insisted we get "Mac and Me" -- so we did. It got an astounding 2.8 stars at IMDB (that's out of 10). Please don't prove me wrong by renting it. Everyone else is talking about "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters". I wanted to watch it tonight but by the time I reached for a copy they were all gone. I'll arm wrestle you for the first one that comes back. I grabbed "The King of California" instead. We did get a few new Criterion titles this week -- "4 by Agnès Varda", "This Sporting Life" and "Miss Julie" -- watch for Criterion releases of "Peirrot le fou" and "The Last Emperor" next month.

Here's some fun trivia: According to the folks at The Digital Bits there are 82,792 titles available on DVD (we have just under 30,000 of them), 404 on BluRay and 386 HD discs. BluRay has 49 more titles announced and HD has another 39. I imagine we'll see that gap widen more every week. This past week HD has taken a beating like a narc at a biker rally. Toshiba keeps lowering HD player prices, Amazon had a big sale on discs, and the shelves at Big Box retailers are being rearranged to make room for more BluRay. Even here at Rentertainment, where you faithful readers know that HD has been king, we have 223 HD discs with 287 rentals and 232 BluRay discs with 277 rentals -- BR is gaining rapidly and will probably dominate by this time next week (and, if you scroll down, you will see that there were no, count em... zero, HD DVDs released last week -- this week there will be two).

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
