New arrivals for the week of January 19, 2010

Happy New Semester!

There were only three big titles this week: "Gamer" (w/Gerard Butler), "The Invention of Lying" (w/Jennifer Garner, Ricky Gervais, and Jonah Hill), and "Pandorum" (w/Dennis Quaid). There were also three smaller theatrical titles released: "According to Greta" (w/Hillary Duff), "Smoking Aces 2" and "Whiteout" (w/Kate Beckinsale). However, we acquired quite a few other titles of note. Microcinema has released two of the ten DVDs from the "9 Evenings" set (a legendary series of theater, dance, music and performances at the New York 69th Regiment Armory in 1966 -- www.9evenings.org). So far we have Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage. We finally got a copy of the 1922 "Sherlock Holmes" starring John Barrymore. Also, on the TV front we got "Jonathan Creek S4", "Law and Order S7" and "Weeds S5". Lastly, we got a giant box of documentaries from the great label Indiepix (www.indiepixfilms.com)... you'll have to find them on the list below and in the newly expanded Documentary section in the store.

All six of the big and smaller theatrical titles came out on BluRay this week. Criterion released Soderbergh's two-parter, "Che" (next week look for Criterion's release of Wim Wenders' "Paris, Texas"). A few other titles of note include "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia". Did any other audio nerds out there see the hilarious story of Lexicon using the Oppo's $500 BR player as the guts for their own $3500 player -- apparently without making any changes to it at all? It's worth a quick google search.

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)
