New arrivals for the week of February 19, 2008

Hello Everyone,

"American Gangster" and "Michael Clayton" dominate the new release wall this week. But, I'm more interested in the cooking section -- to commemorate my new oven (it's a Bertazzoni, baby) we got a small stack of new Best of America's Test Kitchen DVDs (have you read Cook's Illustrated magazine? It's great!). For all you chefs out there, we also have season 1-7 of their fabulous TV show. Also, my favorite band of all time, Roxy Music, has released a DVD compilation, "The Thrill of it All (a Visual History 1972-1982)", featuring videos and live performances. I'm going to call it a good week.

HiDef update: I believe the phrase is, "It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings" and Brünnhilde has sung. Toshiba has official laid down their weapons and surrendered to the evil warlord, Sony. HD-DVD is officially dead -- BluRay has won. Toshiba says there will be handful more new HD discs but no new players. At Renter we will get all the HD we can and keep them in the store as long as people want them. And, of course, we'll continue buying BluRay until our tiny store bursts at the seams or humans evolve to the point of being pre-programmed with every movie ever made embedded in our brains. This will be the last HiDef update... thanks for playing.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
