New arrivals for the week of May 25, 2010
Dear John
The Road'
True Blood

Greetings everyone,

Summer sure has started out with a pizza oven blast of hot air to the face! Not so good for bike riding but perfect for sitting on the couch with some BBQ, a beer, and a stack of movies. The bigger releases this week are "Dear John" (w/Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried), "The Road" (w/Viggo Mortensen), and "True Blood: Season 2". We also got a couple of documentaries we've been waiting for: Erin Davies "Fagbug" documents her 58-day cross-country journey and the hate crimes she encounters, "Voice of a Mountain" is about the lives of rural Guatemalan coffee farmers who took up arms against their government in a civil war that lasted 36 years. Criterion released John Ford's "Stagecoach" on both DVD and BluRay and Nicolas Roeg's "Walkabout" on BluRay. And, speaking of BluRays, last week we crossed the 1,600 titles mark!

It's our birthday... almost. June 1st will mark Rentertainment's 25th birthday. I opened Rentertainment in 1985 as a record rental shop that carried a handful (300) of VHS and Beta tapes. The plan was to build the library to 500 titles -- and it would be only the very best of the best. My friend John and I even built a shelving unit to end all shelving units that would hold more films than we would ever need to hold (800 I think). 25 years later we no longer rent records and have over 36,000 DVDs... not exactly what I had envisioned but pretty great none-the-less. So, Happy Birthday, Rentertainment... here's to many more!

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)

P.S. We are now in summer hour mode: Monday-Thursday (11am - 10pm), Friday-Saturday (11am - midnight) and Sunday (noon - 10pm).
