New arrivals for the week of February 26, 2008

Hello Everyone,

Happy post-Oscars! Did anyone watch them? I stopped watching in 1998 when Rob Lowe did that embarrassing song and dance routine... with Snow White -- yuck! I hear they are only a little bit better now (and maybe even a bit shorter). Here's a list of the big winners and when they'll be available on DVD:

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN – March 11 (Best Picture, Director, etc)
THERE WILL BE BLOOD – April 8 (Best Actor, Cinematography, etc)
LA VIE EN ROSE – Available (Best Actress, Make-up)
MICHAEL CLAYTON – Available (Best Supporting Actress)
JUNO – April 15 (Best Screenplay)
RATATOUILLE – Available (Best Animated)
SWEENEY TODD – April 1 (Best Art Direction)
ELIZABETH: GOLDEN AGE – Available (Best Costume Design)
BOURNE ULTIMATUM – Available (Best Film Editing, Sound Mixing, etc)
ATONEMENT – March 18 (Best Original Score)
ONCE – AVAILABLE (Best Song -- which they played over, and over, and over again)
GOLDEN COMPASS – April 29 (Best Visual Effects)
COUNTERFEITERS - No Date (Best Foreign)
LES MOZART DES PICKPOCKETS - No Date (Best Live Action Short Film)
TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE - No Date (Best Documentary)

It looks like we'll all be busy watching the good stuff in March and April. Speaking of "the good stuff", we just got "Moolaade" (winner of many awards), "Darjeeling Limited", and "Beowulf" (which I didn't like one bit but others seem to love it). And, if ever you needed an excuse to buy a BluRay player, here it is: "Run Lola Run" has been released on BR!!! Gotta get me one.

Have a great day (and watch out for "Unofficial")...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
