This week's biggest release is the 2009 drama, "Grey Gardens" with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore. Not so much a re-make, but rather a dramatization based on the 1975 Maysles brothers amazing documentary also titled "Grey Gardens". If you haven't seen the original, watch it first, then the remake. Both are great. Also out this week is "MadMen Season Two", "The State: The Complete Series", and "Wire in the Blood: Season 6".
Criterion chose "For All Mankind" to be their next BluRay release. Originally released in 1989 and featuring footage shot by NASA and interviews with the 24 men who traveled to the moon, this documentary is considered to be the definitive Apollo moon landing film and will look absolutely amazing in your home theater!
After today's rest day in Yellowstone National Park, the Illini 4000 for Cancer will continue through Montana for a few more days with their next day off in Missoula, MT. They have officially hit the mountains but with just over two more weeks of riding left and the West Coast almost in sight they must be feeling pretty good. You can read the team's blogs, track their progress, and of course make donations on the Illini 4000 web-site (www.illini4000.org).
The Tour de France has also entered the mountains slowing the peloton down considerably. After Stage 10, Rinaldo Nocentini is in yellow with four Astana riders holding the next four places (with Armstrong in 3rd -- behind by just 8 seconds).You can watch clips on Versus (www.versus.com) and read about the race on Velo News (www.velonews.com). Last weekend's local race, the Tour de Champaign, was a huge success. Over 250 riders participated and race organizers have already started talking about next year.
That's it for now. Have a great week...
Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
