New arrivals for the week of November 25, 2008


Hello Everyone,

The Flaming Lips have finally released their movie, "Christmas on Mars" (seven years in the making -- roughly the same time it took Boston to record their second album). You can expect the usual psychedelic craziness seen at a Flaming Lips concert from lead singer, Wayne Coyne's, first movie (but, this time with a plot). If you want to wait, you can see it on the big screen at the Canopy Club on December 7th during one of their "Pizza+Pitcher and Movie" nights. We should have Criterion's "Chungking Express", "Fanfan la Tulipe" and "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold" early next week -- and "Bottle Rocket" soon thereafter. There's going to be some great movie watching soon!

Slim pickin's on the BluRay front this week, too. But, along with such "blockbusters" as Fred Claus and Hancock, we did get a copy of "Becket" (1964, w/Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole). It's been a while since I've seen that so I'd add it to my list for the weekend. Also, word has it there there will be crazy BluRay player and disc deals both on-line and at Brick-n-Mortar places over the Black Friday weekend. I will be at home in my pajamas so you'll have to let me know how the craziness is.

A note on hours: That's Rentertainment will be closed on Thanksgiving and no films will be due that day. Otherwise, we will keep regular hours (M-Sa 10-midnight, Su noon-midnight). Come and visit!

Have a great extended and early weekend...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
