New arrivals for the week of March 31, 2009


Greetings everyone,

This week is full of hits: "Tell No One" is a great French thriller, "Slumdog Millionaire" you all know, "Seven Pounds" is about an IRS agent (Will Smith) who gets to change the lives of seven people, and "Marley & Me" starring Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston and a life-lesson teaching puppy dog. This week we also got a slew of non-hits including Set 3 of the Jazz Icons series (w/Sonny Rollins, Cannonball Adderly, Bill Evans, Nina Simone, etc), Criterion's new releases of Kurosawa's "Dodes' Ka-Den" and Truffaut's "Last Metro", and the 1972 BBC production of "War & Peace" starring Anthony Hopkins and Alan Dobie. For you Acorn Media types, we got "Taggart: Set 1" -- the world’s longest continually running police drama. More sets coming soon. And, as promised, on BluRay we got the Matrix Trilogy (plus all the hits listed above).

Roger Ebert announced his films for the 11th Annual Ebertfest: Woodstock (1970), My Winnipeg (2007), Chop Shop (2007), Trouble the Water (2008), Begging Naked, The Last Command (1928), Frozen River (2008), The Fall (2006), Sita Sings the Blues (2008), Nothing but the Truth (2008), Let the Right One In (2008), and Baraka (1992). As always there's a nice mix of films I've seen but will happily watch again on the giant screen, some I've never seen but have always wanted to, and some I would never have watched without the prompting of Ebertfest and am always glad I saw them once I did. I must say, I am looking forward to Ebertfest once again this year. If you don't have a festival pass, individual tickets will go on sale April 6. See you at the Virginia Theater -- I'll be in my usual seat by the aisle.

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

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
