New arrivals for the week of August 4, 2009


Greetings everyone,

A few titles of note arrived this week: "Obsessed" (w/Idris Elba and Beyonce Knowles), "Race to Witch Mountain" (yup, a remake of the Disney classic w/Vin Diesel, Carla Gugino and Ciaran Hinds), and "The Soloist" (w/Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx). We got a few new TV series as well: "Flight of the Conchords: Season 2", "Pushing Daisies: Season 2" and "Torchwood: Children of Earth".

There are just a few weeks left until the dorms open, students come back and things get crazy on campus again. On Monday, August 17th we'll go back to our regular hours (Mon-Sat: 10-midnight; Sun: noon-midnight). Right around then we should also start seeing a more normal flow of new releases -- both on DVD and BluRay. If you want to try the new sushi place on Green Street, grab a Murphy's burger without standing in line, or rent that final disc of "BSG S4.5" then you'd better get down to campus before the chaos kicks in.

Have you seen the new outdoor seating at The Bread Company and Espresso Royale in Urbana? It's all part of the Goodwin Avenue "complete streets" project (roadways with all users in mind - including bicyclists, public transportation vehicles and riders, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities). It looks like they should be done with the whole thing soon. I think it's looking great. Do you suppose we can get the folks behind that project to do some of the same in downtown Urbana? I'm looking forward to it!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
