New arrivals for the week of December 16, 2008


Hello Everyone,

It must be getting close to Christmas because we got three more versions of "A Christmas Carol" in (1951, 1984, and 1999). One of them even stars Captain Jean-Luc Picard as Ebenezer Scrooge. For those of you patiently waiting for us to replace our copy of Elf, try again in a few days... we should have it by the end of the week. Also, Sundance award winner, "Man on a Wire", the documentary about "Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974", finally arrived on DVD. Another documentary, "Frost/Nixon: The Original Interviews" promises to be an interesting (and timely) title, too.

This will be the last time you have to put up with me touting on and on about Criterion Tuesday -- because it is here! We finally got the first wave of the greatest labels new releases on BluRay. Look for definitive versions of Bottle Rocket, Chungking Express, The Man Who Fell to Earth and The Third Man the next time you are in the store. Future releases will include The Last Emperor and El Norte. Also in on BluRay are Mama Mia! and the new Mummy movie.

Have a great rest of your week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
