New arrivals for the week of May 18, 2010
Extraordinary Measures
Invictus
Messenger

Greetings everyone,

This week's bigger than average releases include "Extraordinary Measures" (w/Brendan Fraser, Keri Russell and Harrison Ford), "Invictus" (dir: Clint Eastwood; w/Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon), and "The Messenger" (w/Ben Foster, Jena Malone, Woody Harrelson and Samantha Morton). Also new this week: "Jermal" (Indonesia), "Son of Man" (South Africa), and the first three seasons of "The Red Green Show" (1991-1993) -- back when it was hilarious in its absurdity. Also, I think I forgot to mention we finally got all of Gene Roddenberry's "Andromeda" series... yup, all 50 discs of it. You can find it in the TV section. Of special note on BluRay this week: Criterion's release of Fritz Lang's "M" (one of my "Top 10 of All Time" films) and the Ramones in Roger Corman's "Rock 'n Roll High School".

The Illini 4000 for Cancer team is now just 6 days away from their New York send-off and they have crossed the $100,000 raised mark -- congratulations! All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society and Camp Kesem at the University of Illinois. They will be passing through Urbana-Champaign on June 8th and there will be some sort of reception at the Alumni Center. I'll put details here as soon as I have them. Check out their web site (www.illini4000.org) to follow their progress and help support the cause.

Don't forget, That's Rentertainment is now in summer hour mode: Monday-Thursday (11am - 10pm), Friday-Saturday (11am - midnight) and Sunday (noon - 10pm).

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
