New arrivals for the week of August 11, 2009


Greetings everyone,

As promised, with the imminent return of the students the list of new arrivals has grown! The only big titles this week are "17 Again" and "I Love You Man" but there are lots of other (and, in my opinion, better) titles to choose from. For all you Mystery Science Theater fans out there, we got in Volume XV and finally created a "MST3K and related titles" section (it's by the Star Trek and Doctor Who stuff). To fill out those shelves a bit we added seven volumes of the Rifftrax series... more coming soon. In the International section we've got Andrzej Wadja's latest, "Katyn". Also, "Apres Lui" with Catherine Deneuve, "Paris 36" and the first installment of the Murdoch Mysteries TV series. For any of you masochistic opera fans we've finally picked up a complete Wagner Ring cycle (*). This 15 hour, 8-disc set of the 1991/1992 Kupfer and Barenboim Ring Cycle includes: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, Gotterdammerung and The Making of Der Ring Des Nibelungen. At the other end of the musical spectrum, and in honor of Ronnie Briggs release from prison, we got the Sex Pistol's "Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle". Not a great movie by any stretch but well worth it for the footage of the Sex Pistols.

BluRay discs keep pouring in and we are rapidly running out of room for them. Soon we'll move all the New Release BluRay titles to the New Release DVD wall... I think they can all get along just fine. This week, along with the big titles listed above, we got a couple of 80s coming of age films: "About Last Night" and "St Elmo's Fire". Soon, I'll be getting myself one of the new Oppo BR players (BDP-83)... I'll be sure to let you know what I think.

Important upcoming dates: Rentertainment will be going back to regular hours on Monday, August 17th, the dorms open the following Thursday, Quad day is Sunday and classes start on Monday... that's all really soon!!!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
