New arrivals for the week of March 30, 2010

Greetings everyone,

This week's new release box brings us a look at the late 60s/early 70s German terrorist group, Red Army Faction (RAF), in "The Baader-Meinhof Complex", a coming of age story set in London in the 60s with "An Education", and a new take on the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character in "Sherlock Holmes" (w/Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law; dir: Guy Ritchie). "The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" (2 volumes, eight discs) looks like it could be interesting to the British Mystery lovers among us -- over twenty hours of other detectives from the late Victorian England. Also just in, "Tora-San: Collector's Set 1" -- four films (of the 48 made) from the longest-running film series in Japanese history (and second longest in the world). I predict in just a few years, the "Saw" series will be #1.

Roger Ebert has announced the lineup for this year's Ebertfest (www.ebertfest.com): Pink Floyd The Wall (in 70mm), You, The Living, Munyurangabo, The New Age, Apocalypse Now/Redux, Departures, Man with a Movie Camera, Synecdoche, New York, I Capture the Castle, and Trucker. As always, a few I've seen, a few I've wanted to see, and a few I know nothing about. But, when it's all over, I'll think they were all great choices. Festival passes are sold out but individual tickets go on sale April 5th -- hurry though, they'll sell out, too. Look for me in my usual seat by the aisle... see you there!

On Saturday, the Illini 4000 start outdoor training for the 4th annual summer's bicycle ride across the country raising money for cancer research. Follow their progress on their website (www.illini4000.org). Also in cycling news, May is Bike Month and ChampaignCountyBikes.org is pleased to announce C-U Bike to Work Day will be held Tuesday, May 4. They would like to invite all area cyclists to participate in the first community-wide Bike to Work Day! More information is available on the website (www.ChampaignCountyBikes.org).

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
