New arrivals for the week of September 29, 2009


Greetings everyone,

Some of the bigger titles this week are "Away We Go" (w/John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph, screenplay by Dave Eggers... but, our copies got delayed a day or two), "The Brothers Bloom" (Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz), "The Girlfriend Experience" (w/Sasha Grey, directed by Steven Soderbergh), "Management" (w/Jennifer Aniston, Steve Zahn, Woody Harrelson, and Fred Ward) and "Monsters vs Aliens" (voices by Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, etc). Of most excitement this week: Mario Bava's 1965 sci-fi/horror film "Planet of the Vampires". According to the experts, this film was "borrowed from" heavily by the makers of the Alien series. They also say it's even better with 3-d glasses but I'll let you be the judge of that.

On BluRay we got four of the five big titles ("Away We Go", "The Girlfriend Experience", "Management" and "Monsters Vs. Aliens") along with some older titles (including "Labyrinth", "The New York Ripper", "Snakes on a Plane" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"). In just three weeks watch for the Criterion release of "Monsoon Wedding" followed closely by "Wings of Desire". Excellent!

New Section alert! Pat just created the Peplum Section (aka Sword and Sandals) for all of our "low-budget Italian movie(s) on a gladiatorial, Biblical or mythological subject, often with a professional bodybuilder in the principal role" (wiki link). Look for it back by the Science Fiction stuff. It's a pretty small section right now but bigger than the Biker's From Hell section.

Don't forget, in just one week (Wednesday, October 7th) is the official "International Walk and Bike to School Day" (www.iwalktoschool.org). So, if you're a student make sure to do one or the other, if you're faculty or staff I think it still counts, and if you have nothing to do with school of any sort on that day you might as well walk or bike anyway... everyone else will be doing it.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
