New arrivals for the week of June 17, 2008

Hello Everyone,

I've finally got a few dates for previously unavailable films from this years Ebertfest: Shotgun Stories (my "Best of Show" -- July 1st) and The Band's Visit (my "2nd Best of Show" -- July 9th). That only leaves Housekeeping and Underworld (1927) as not being available on DVD. No dates on either of those yet. There are still quite a few not available from previous years (among them are Somebodies, Sweet Old Song, and Louie Bluie) but watch for the much anticipated release of El Norte on DVD (from Criterion, no less) soon.

This week we bought another giant pile of BluRay into Rentertainment. A few of the titles probably belong in a giant pile of something else but hey, if it's being shown at full 1080p it's gotta be good, right? Both Walmart and Best Buy have announced sub-$300 BluRay players and the prices on hi-def TVs keeps dropping and dropping. I'm still waiting...

Today the Illini 4000 for Cancer are in Wisconsin and turning left towards Minnesota. They have raised almost $60,000 towards their goal of $75,000 -- to be donated to Camp Kesem and the American Cancer Society Research Fund. Check out the Illini 4000 web site for more information, to read the riders journal entries and/or to make a donation.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
