This week's two blockbuster titles are "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (w/John Cusack, John Goodman and John Lithgow) and "Pink Panther 2" (w/Steve Martin as Inspector Clouseau and Jean Reno, Andy Garcia and John Cleese). Also out this week: Oscar nominee "Waltz with Bashir" (but ours didn't show up on time... maybe today?), "Bicycle Dreams" (a documentary about the Race Across America - a ten day coast to coast bicycle race), and "I Know I'm Not Alone" (musician and activist Michael Franti's documentary on his mission of peace in the Middle East).
Slim pickins on the BluRay front: "Waltz with Bashir", both of the blockbusters listed above, and Criterion released Alain Resnais' "Last Year at Marienbad"... that's really about it.
Today the Illini 4000 for Cancer will leave Madison, WI and head towards Reedsburg, WI (located directly on the 90th meridian so clocks there are exactly in sync with the sun overhead). It sounds like they haven't had great luck with the weather (lots of rain) and now it's getting dangerously hot by noon but they are still on schedule and spirits are high. 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)
