You know it's a pretty lame week for new releases when the biggest title we've got to offer you is the new Friday the 13th movie (aka Friday the 13th Part XII). However, if that doesn't interest you, how about the animated Canadian TV show, Chilly Beach -- lots of beer and hockey. Or, you can watch the Nova special, Extreme Ice (about the runaway melting of arctic glaciers). That's about it.
The most exciting thing this week on BluRay is the newest Criterion release, Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal. Other new BluRay titles include the fantastic Jamaican film, Rockers, Stanley Kubrick's Dr Stranglove, and a few great comedies: Mel Brooks' Spaceballs and the always excellent Ghost Busters.
A small group of us met up with the Illini 4000 for Cancer at Homer Lake and rode into Urbana with them yesterday. Other than a few flat tires, some rain and a lot of road dirt, they seem to be doing great. Today they head north towards Chicago, then Madison, then a left turn to Portland. You can read the team's blogs, track their progress, and of course make donations on the Illini 4000 web-site (www.illini4000.org).
That's it for now. Have a great week...
Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
