Only a handful of DVDs were released this week and it looks like even fewer will be coming in next week. The studios will pick up the pace a bit once the holidays are over. The biggest titles this week are: "Jennifer’s Body", "9" (Produced by Tim Burton), "Paranormal Activity", and "Perfect Getaway" (w/Steve Zahn, Mila Jovovich, Timothy Olyphant & Kiele Sanchez) -- all four are available on both DVD and BluRay.
Top Ten lists are cropping up all over the internet. If I find any that are exceptionally interesting I'll post links to them from our web page. Since we are all fans of both Roger Ebert and documentaries, I was happy to see his list of the top 10 documentaries of 2009. Check it out here.
New hours alert! Rentertainment's new hours are: Mon-Thurs 10-10, Fri 10-midnight, Sat 11-midnight, Sun noon-10. Also, close early (8:00) on the 31st and open late (noon) on the 1st. No films will be due on the 1st (but you're welcome to stop by and say hello anyway).
Have a happy New Year...
Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
