Greetings everyone,

No giant blockbusters this week but a few bigger small titles: "Armored" (a not-so-great heist gone wrong film w/Matt Dillon, Jean Reno and Laurence Fishburne), "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" (based on the book of the same name, a collection of twenty-three short stories by Urbana native David Foster Wallace), "Broken Embraces" (directed by Pedro Almodovar; starring Penelope Cruz), "The Fourth Kind" (thriller set in Alaska w/Milla Jovovich), "Ninja Assassin" (lots of ninja action starring Rain), "Paris" (w/Juliette Binoche and Romain Duris) and "The Princess and the Frog" (another one from Disney). However, the most anticipated release of the week has to be the DVD debut of John Huston's "The African Queen" -- how could this not have been released on DVD until today? Also out this week: another set (#17) from the funny folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000 (possibly the only series watched as much as Star Trek while working at Rentertainment), the complete Ruth Rendell Mysteries (17 mysteries in 4 sets on 11 DVDs), and "Pontypool" (a psychological thriller from Canada).

Mark your calendars: "Twilight: New Moon" is being released this Saturday (the 20th) -- better get here early!

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
