New arrivals for the week of October 6, 2009


Greetings everyone,

It would appear that this week's biggest title is "Year One" -- a crap comedy starring Jack Black and Michael Cera and directed by Harold Ramis (of "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day" fame) whose next project seems to be a re-make of "Meatballs"... really? From a historical standpoint though, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" is a much bigger title and certainly tons better. It comes in a fancy 3-disc set which includes both the DVD and the BluRay and a ton of extras. Back to present day, "My Life in Ruins" (w/Nia Vardarlos of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and the usually annoying Richard Dreyfuss) comes out today, too. In preparation for All Hallows’ Even we got "Trick r Treat" -- which has an astounding 7.8 stars at IMDB. Also of note are "The Garden" ("... an engaging and powerful look at the famous political and social battle over the largest community garden in the U.S (located in south central Los Angeles)."), a pseudo-legit copy of "Mediterraneo", the latest issue of "Wholphin", and three more Doctor Who titles (#s 88, 94 and 150 if you're keeping score at home). No pushing... there's plenty of new stuff for everyone!

On BluRay we got the aforementioned "Year One", "My Life in Ruins", "Snow White" and "Trick 'r Treat" but also found copies of "Audition", "Contact", "Frankenstein", and "Wolf" in the box. By the way, there have now been 1,768 BluRay titles released... we have about two-thirds of them. For comparisons sake, there are 105,119 DVD titles available right now... we have about one-third of those. More fun BluRay facts can be found at The Digital Bits (www.thedigitalbits.com).

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
