New arrivals for the week of January 5, 2010

Happy New Year!

This week's only two proper new releases are: "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" (lots of animated fun) and "The Final Destination" (volume 4 in the series... and now in 3-D). Although there weren't a lot of new releases there are more new arrivals than in previous weeks. Along with a pile of other films, we got two new Doctor Who titles, "Acting Shakespeare" (w/Ian McKellen doing monologues from Shakespeare’s masterpieces), three new Sherlock Holmes double-feature discs (all with Basil Rathbone), and the much sought-after "Jerichow" (a new thriller from Germany). Look for lots of new international titles to arrive through the rest of this week.

On BluRay we finally picked up all the seasons of "Lost", "Battlestar Galactica: Season 1", and the complete "Prisoner" (with Patrick "I am not a Number" McGoohan). For the folks interested in numbers (statistics and such, not the TV show... necessarily), in January of 2009 BluRay represented just over 2.5% of our rentals, in December it had climbed to 5%, and BluRay now represents about 3.7% of our inventory. Numbers are fun!

New hours alert! Rentertainment's new hours are: Mon-Thurs 10-10, Fri 10-midnight, Sat 11-midnight, Sun noon-10.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
