New arrivals for the week of December 2, 2008


Hello Everyone,

Black Friday, Cyber Monday... whatever. All I care about is New-Release Tuesday and that's today! "Wanted" and "Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" are the blockbusters of the week and "The Johnny Cash TV Show" is the coolest release of the week. "Wanted" stars James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, and Morgan Freeman in a quasi superhero, futuristic, thriller thing that, in my book, left a lot to be desired. "Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" is based on the second book (in a series of seven) -- we can look forward to at least five more of these. "The Johnny Cash TV Show", on the other hand, includes awesome performances by the likes of Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings, Ray Charles, Bill Monroe, CCR and, of course, Johnny Cash -- a much better bet for sure. We also got in Volume 6 of the Earth Cinema Circle series, three new Criterion titles (including The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Chungking Express and Fanfan la Tulipe), and a couple of Michael Palin titles (on PAL though, sorry).

Our BluRay shipment seems to have been delayed but it should be here tomorrow afternoon sometime... sorry about that. The stuff we are expecting is listed below.

And, don't forget, this weekend is the 6th annual Old East End Art HooHa. Check out locally made art from over 20 artists in eight studios and galleries in Urbana. Show times are Friday (6-9) and Saturday (11-6). For locations, list of participating artists, and more check out the official Art HooHa web site (www.arthooha.com).

Have a great rest of your week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
