New arrivals for the week of March 9, 2010

Greetings everyone,

This week's big titles include a sequel, a documentary and two Academy Award nominees: "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day" (w/Sean Patrick Flannery, Norman Reedus and Billy Connolly), "Capitalism: A Love Story" (Michael Moore's latest documentary -- this time on Corporate America), "Precious" (w/Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’nique), and "Up in the Air" (w/George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick). Despite only getting about half of what we ordered from our distributor this week, we did manage to get a few smaller titles, too: "Alice in Wonderland" (this is the 1933 version w/Cary Grant, Gary Cooper and WC Fields), "The Beaches of Agnes" (an autobiographical documentary by and about Anges Varda), "Examined Life" (a second documentary by Astra Taylor who also directed "Zizek!") and Oscilloscope Laboratories latest release, "Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait of Maurice Sendak". With the arrival of three more Doctor Who titles, I think we are finally caught up on everything available (but please let me know if I am mistaken). The next wave should come on May 4th.

We got a small pile of PAL discs this week, too. After two great seasons, I thought "Hustle" sort of went downhill. But, I am pleased to announce the gang has finally regained their stride in Season 5. You would think with all the British TV stuff coming out, someone would release Judge John Deed over here, but, for now you can only see it with a PAL player -- and we just got Seasons 3 and 4 in. Lastly, if you've got a thing for Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner, you had better get over here right away! We just got Ken Russell's way over-the-top "Lisztomania" -- "The erotic, exotic electrifying rock fantasy... It out-Tommy's TOMMY." Out-Tommy's Tommy? Wow!

This week we did not re-arrange the BluRay section.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
