New arrivals for the week of December 8, 2009

Greetings everyone,

It's a huge week for huge films: "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" (with all the usual Hogwarts cast of characters), "Julie & Julia" (w/Meryl Streep and Amy Adams), "Public Enemies" (w/Johnny Depp, directed by Michael Mann) and "World's Greatest Dad" (w/Robin Williams, directed by Bobcat Goldthwait of "Shakes the Clown" fame). Also new this week is "Paperback Dreams", a documentary about independent booksellers and the people who love them. "The Cove" is a must-see but disturbing documentary about the regular mass killing of bottlenose dolphins in the town of Taiji, Japan. And, with the release of "McLeod's Daughters" (the original movie that inspired the eight-season Australian TV series), we can definitively say we have all things McLeod.

If you've got a BluRay player you can watch any of this week's huge four in 1080p. It looks like prices on BR players are dropping even further this holiday season (some are under $100) and they are piling on more and more features. My favorite (and unfortunately quite expensive) is still the Oppo BDP-83. However, I can't imagine I was "nice" enough this year to have Santa bring me one but I can certainly side-step his draconian rules and simply put it on my credit card (just doing my part for the economy, mom)!

We will be keeping our regular hours through Saturday, Dec 19th and will then switch to our special holiday condensed hours (Mon-Thurs 10-10, Fri 10-midnight, Sat 11-midnight, Sun noon-10). Also, we will close early (8:00) on the 24th, be closed on the 25th, open at noon on the 26th, close early (8:00) on the 31st and open late (noon) on the 1st. No films will be due on the 25th or 1st.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
