New arrivals for the week of November 10, 2009


Greetings everyone,

There were only two big hits in this week's box of goodies: "Up" (Disney/Pixar animation) and "The Ugly Truth" (w/Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler). Other titles of note include the DVD debut of John Houston's 1987 adaptation of the James Joyce novel "The Dead" starring Donal McCann and Anjelica Huston. "MoveOn: The Movie" is "a feature-length documentary focusing on the revolutionary history of the biggest progressive grass-roots movement seen in the United States since the 1960s." And "Stranded", a documentary that revisits the Andes crash survivors 35 years later.

"Monsters, Inc", "The Ugly Truth" and "Up" all came out on BluRay this week. Also, if not the biggest Anime title in history, certainly the first of the biggest Anime titles in history, "Akira" has finally arrived. Other new BluRay titles this week include: Buster Keaton's "The General", Michael Mann's "Heat" and the sci-fi classic "Logan's Run".

There are a few new businesses of note in Urbana: V Picasso (in the old Office on Main Street) is a new tapas restaurant owned by the El Toro folks. I'm going next week. The Wooden Hanger is a new woman's boutique at the corner or Race and Main. It's worth a visit just to see what they've done with the space. And, Wines at the Pines (www.winesatthepines.com) is a new wine shop/coffee shop at the corner of Windsor and Philo (across from Milo's). I was there last night and it's really very nice. Sadly, Howbowda Bagles (on campus) is closing for good next week. I'd say they made a good run at it but between the high rents on campus and the untimely arrival of two huge competitors (read: national chains) within spitting distance I'm afraid they didn't stand much of a chance. I wish them luck on their next venture.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
