New arrivals for the week of September 16, 2008


Hello Everyone,

"Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains" has finally made its DVD debut! Starring Diane Lane as young punk rocker in an all girl band (which also includes Laura Dern), this film was a staple on Nighfilght in the 80s (in fact, most bootleg copies floating around today still include old Nightflight commercials). If you pay attention, you'll spot a slew of other stars as well: Ray Winstone, Christine Lahti, Steve Jones and Paul Cook (ex-Sex Pistols), Paul Simonon (from The Clash), and Vince Welnick and Fee Waybill (from The Tubes). Also, L.A. punk icon Black Randy (John Morris) from Black Randy and the Metrosquad and brief cameos by Elizabeth Daily (as a hotel maid), Brent Spiner (Star Trek's Data), and Debbie Rochon ("famous" for all her Seduction Cinema films). Of course, if none of those names mean anything to you this might not be the best pick for you this weekend.

Last week it was 60s and 70s Disney films (mostly starring Kurt Russell), this week Jess is starting a list of "70s Disaster Films" (ie Earthquake, Poseidon Adventure, Towering Inferno, etc). To that end, we've now added the entire "Airport" collection to our collection (that's the original Airport, Airport '75, Airport '77 and, of course, Airport '79: The Concord). Watch for other epic disaster films like Rollercoaster (George Segal) and Meteor (Sean Connery) soon. Are we missing any others?

We also got a small stack of PAL DVDS including the much anticipated "Chet Baker: Let's Get Lost" (directed by Bruce Webber). Hopefully they'll put a domestic version of this out soon. Also in that pile were My Name is Joe (directed by Ken Loach), Our Man in Havana (starring Alec Guiness), QI: The B Series (Stephen Fry and Alan Davies), Shut Up!/Tais-Toi (with Jean Reno), Stella Street: Series 2, and Le Velo de Ghislain Lambert (a comedy about bike racing in the 70s). We'll be getting "20:30:40" and "Angry Kid - Series 2" on PAL soon.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
