New arrivals for the week of April 27, 2010
Imaginarium
It's Complicated

Greetings everyone,

This week's big titles include Terry Gilliam's latest fantastical film, "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus" (w/Christopher Plummer, Johnny Depp, Colin Ferrell, Jude Law and Heath Ledger), and Nancy Meyer's fifth film, "It's Complicated" (w/Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin and John Krasinski). Also, we got in some very cool looking documentaries about Milton Glaser, William Kunstler, and Beethoven. "Six Centuries of Verse" is seven hours of "poetry’s highlights through the years, as read by distinguished actors" (including Peggy Ashcroft, Lee Remick, Stacy Keach, Ralph Richardson, Ian Richardson, Julian Glover, Anthony Hopkins, and more). And, along with all the usual awesome content, the newest issue of Wholphin (#10) includes a Jonathan Demme documentary and Natalie Portman's directorial debut.

Another Ebertfest has come and gone and, from what I saw of it, it was another huge success. Four of the films shown are not available on DVD ("The New Age", "Song Sung Blue" and "Vincent: A Life in Color" have never been released and "Barfly" is currently out of print) but the other nine you can get from our Ebertfest section to enjoy at home. Also, "Plastic Bag", directed by Ramin Bahrani with the voice of Werner Herzog, will be available on Wholphin #11 at the end of June. Of the films I got to see this year, "Trucker" and "Departures" were my favorites. If you are lucky, maybe you can get Michelle Monaghan to come over and talk to you about "Trucker" after you watch it like she did for the 1,750 of us in the audience at the Virginia Theater.

It's finally here! Next Tuesday (May 4th) is C-U Bike to Work Day. Over 400 people have already pre-registered to visit one of the four bike stations (in both downtowns, campus and Savoy) on their way to work for coffee, treats and the chance to win fabulous prizes. I'm planning on taking the long route to the store on Tuesday and hitting all four stations. For more information and to pre-register (it's FREE) visit: www.ChampaignCountyBikes.org

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
