New arrivals for the week of January 12, 2010

Happy New Year!

Some of the bigger titles this week include "Big Fan" (w/Patton Oswalt who does that hilarious bit about KFC's Famous Bowls), "The Burning Plain" (w/Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger), "Departures" (Japanese film that won the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Picture), "Halloween II" (dir: Rob Zombie), "The Hurt Locker" (intense Iraq war drama/thriller directed by Kathryn Bigelow) and "Moon" (w/Sam Rockwell). On the lesser known front, we got the complete PBS "E2: The Economics of Being Environmentally Conscious" series (www.e2-series.com), the other two seasons of the British comedy series "The Mighty Boosch", "Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037" (a documentary about the creation of a Steinway concert grand) and Wanda Jakubowska's 1948 WWII/Auschwitz drama, "The Last Stage". Also, we finally got Ken Burns' "Baseball" and "National Parks".

"The Brothers Bloom" was finally released on BluRay this week. We also got all the big titles above except for "The Big Fan" and "Departures" which haven't been released yet. And, just in time for "Nine" to hit the theaters, Criterion has released "8 1/2" on BluRay. I'll watch the latter and skip the former. Next week Criterion is releasing Soderbergh's "Che" followed by Wim Wenders' "Paris, Texas" one week later.

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)
