New arrivals for the week of October 7, 2008


Hello Everyone,

There are a few below the radar titles I'm very excited about this week. The first is a 70s TV series about a Polish insurance investigator, "Banacek", starring George Peppard who we've all seen in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and years later on TVs "The A-Team" -- as John "Hannibal" Smith (along side Mr. T). The other is the 70s driving film, aptly named "The Driver", starring Ryan O'Neal as a professional getaway car driver in what promises to be an awesome heist gone wrong film -- and I love me some heist gone wrong films! The documentary I mentioned last week, "Dr Bronner's Magic Soapbox" arrived along with "Hacking Democracy" (a new political documentary release by Docurama). The lastest Japanese-Horror film to be added to our collection is "Hair Extensions" -- about hair extensions that attack the women who wear them (of course). Jenn says it looks great. I'll stick with Banacek.

Disney made their first entry into the world of BluRay with this week's release of "Sleeping Beauty". It's a three-disc set that, if I've read it right, comes with a bonus disc and a copy of the movie on DVD. Really? And what ever happened to being able to fit tons of content on one BluRay disc? Why these multi-disc releases? We also got three new Ray Harryhausen titles, a handful of horror films and the always amazing "Young Frankenstein" ("Abby someone... Abby Normal").

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
