New arrivals for the week of December 15, 2009

Greetings everyone,

Four more blockbusters made it to DVD (and BluRay) this week: "G-Force" (Disney), "The Hangover" (w/Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis), "Inglourious Basterds" (w/Brad Pitt and Eli Roth, dir: Quentin Tarantino), and "Taking Woodstock" (directed by Ang Lee). Pat has written good reviews of both The Hangover and Inglourious Basterds at Smile Politely in his From the Box article this week. G-force gets a less than stellar 4.8/10 over at IMDB but with a tagline that reads "Gadgets, Gizmos, Guinea Pigs" I'm not sure they could have expected much more (I know, everyone loves guinea pigs). I watched Taking Woodstock (directed by U of I graduate Ang Lee) over the weekend and thought it was a great alternative take on the Woodstock phenomenon with plenty of nods to the original film. The reconstruction of the time period was incredible.

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)
