New arrivals for the week of November 3, 2009


Greetings everyone,

This week's big titles include "Food, Inc." (watch it and never eat again), "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra", "I Love You Beth Cooper" (based on the book of the same name by University of Illinois graduate Larry Doyle), and"Taking of Pelham 1 2 3" (a remake of the 70s film with Denzel Washington and John Travolta, directed by Tony Scott). Criterion has given Wim Wenders' "Wings of Desire" the royal treatment with tons of extras including the 2003 documentary "The Angels Among Us" (featuring interviews with Wenders, Peter Falk, actors Bruno Ganz and Otto Sander, writer Peter Handke, and composer Jürgen Knieper). And, 70s spy-spoof genre fans who think they've seen 'em all, "Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp" is finally here! You see, it's like "Get Smart" and "The Man from UNCLE" but with chimpanzees. What's your theory, Darwin?

On BluRay this week, Criterion has served up both Wim Wenders' "Wings of Desire" and James Ivory's "Howards End" (which, among other goodies, includes two previously unreleased documentaries). All the big titles from up above came in on BluRay along with some older titles (Forrest Gump, Love Actually, and Say Anything). But, most exciting (or at least tied with "Wings of Desire") is Hitchcock's 1959 masterpiece, "North by Northwest". I know what I'm doing this weekend!

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
