New arrivals for the week of March 24, 2009


Greetings everyone,

We watched "Quantum of Solace" the other night -- lots of action, guns and Olga Kurylenko but not too high on my list of best Bond films ever. On a side note though, we'll have the version of Tosca that's featured in the theater sequence soon (the sets looked super cool). For all you Acorn Media fans out there, we got Midsomer Murder Set 12. Watch for more Acorn stuff very soon. TCM Archive's "Forbidden Hollywood" series has added a third chapter to their collection (and watch for Universal's Pre-code collection in early April). Also in this week is Bolt, Venture Bros S3, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Galaxy Divided.

Criterion has released two more BluRay discs ("The 400 Blows" and "The Last Metro") bringing their total BluRay output to eight titles. Also on BluRay this week is the third set of Bond films, the "Fast and the Furious" trilogy, and Oscar nominee "The Kite Runner" (which the Champaign School board has now said is ok for sophomores to read -- no word yet on if it's ok to watch the movie, though). By some oversight, we didn't get the Matrix trilogy on BluRay when it was released. That is being corrected and we should have it by the end of the week.

We finally made it to the Black Dog Smoke and Ale House in Urbana (where Tod and John's used to be). My selection was the beef brisket plate and let me tell you, the vinegar based bbq sauce is amazing. Add to that a very nice beer selection and the Black Dog gets my seal of approval. Being only two blocks from Parasol (my home away from Renter) you can bet you'll find me there often.

That's it for now. Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
