New arrivals for the week of November 18, 2008


Hello Everyone,

This week we've got two blockbusters for you! Pixar gives us "WALL-E" -- an end-of the-world sci-fi adventure about a garbage collecting robot (ok, there's a lot more going on but that's the gist of it) and Ben Stiller gives us "Tropic Thunder" which, despite everything that is just plain wrong about it, has some very funny moments. The fine folks at McSweeney's have done it again: "Wholphin No. 7" includes "...a short film by Gus Van Sant based on a William S. Burroughs short story; a face off between American gray squirrels and British red squirrels; a hallucinogenic post-Katrina New Orleans masterpiece; a documentary exploring autism from the animators of Waking Life; an incredibly close look at the sun in its most inactive and gorgeous state; Field Notes from Dimension X, bumper cars, UFOs and more." Wow... all on one disc! Also in this week's box is "Educating Peter" (a documentary about a child with Downs Syndrome), Herzog's latest, "Encounters at the End of the World" (a documentary about the Antarctica), and "Pond Hockey" (a documentary about... errmmm... pond hockey).

On the BluRay front: it looks like Criterion has delayed their handful of releases. Five have been rescheduled for December (Bottle Rocket, Chungking Express, The Third Man, The Man Who Fell to Earth, and The Last Emperor) and another (El Norte) for January. That should give you plenty of time to "burn-in" your new TV and BluRay player.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
