New arrivals for the week of October 27, 2009


Greetings everyone,

Woody Allen's "Whatever Works" (with Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood) is more of what we have come to expect from Mr Allen: a New Yorker lead with a cynical outlook on everything and the need to talk about it non-stop... and I thought it was great. Also out this week: "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan", "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs", and "Orphan". With this week's arrival of seasons 5 and 6, we have completed our "Lovejoy" collection. A pre-Deadwood Ian McShane plays an antique dealer/hustler who always seems to fall into a mystery of some sort. Using art history and his conman sensibilities he manages to make all right in the world again. Watch 'em all -- they're good fun. Also on the new arrivals list are a bunch of documentaries, international films (including Mike Leigh's "High Hopes") and classics... see below.

Cycling film fans: the wait is over, the 2009 Grand Tours and Spring Classics are here... six in all. Of course we got the grand master of them all, the Tour de France -- witness over thirteen hours of teammates Alberto Contador and Lance Armstrong duking it out for the podium across 2,141 miles, through 22 stages in three weeks of racing. We also got the Giro d'Italia (includes the 2009 Milan San Remo), Ghent-Wevelgem/Omloop Het, Liege-Bastogne/Fleche Wallonne, Paris-Roubaix (cobbles, baby!) and the Tour of Flanders. Vive le Tour!

BluRay has been in the industry news a lot lately: player prices are dropping (with rumors of a $49 player being available on Black Friday), Toshiba has finally thrown in the towel (after loosing the "format war") and jumped on the BR bandwagon with a player of their own, and BD-Live (the ability to pull content from the web) is becoming all but standard on new players. Discs keep coming out and we keep buying them.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
