New arrivals for the week of July 20, 2010
Cop Out
Losers
Runaways

Greetings everyone,

The combined box office of the big three this week is just under $72m. So, they are smaller, but not necessarily lesser, titles: "Cop Out" (directed by Kevin Smith; w/Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis), "The Losers" (directed by Sylvain White), and "The Runaways" (w/Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning). Another slightly bigger than average title is "Mother" from South Korea and directed by Joon-ho Bong ("The Host" and new this week "Barking Dogs Never Bite").

Two new Criterion titles also arrived -- both on DVD and BluRay and both directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger: "Black Narcissus" (1947) and "The Red Shoes" (1948). "Kusama, Yayoi: I Love Me" is the second installment of the New People Artists Series. The 50th Anniversary Edition of "Spartacus" came out on BluRay this week. It includes deleted scenes, interviews, and, possibly most exciting, Saul Bass storyboards.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Japanese Animation" (and is loaded with Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli titles):
1) PONYO
2) SPIRITED AWAY (DISNEY)
3) MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
4) PRINCESS MONONOKE
5) NAUSICAA: VALLEY OF THE WIND
6) HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
7) CASTLE IN THE SKY
8) KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE
9) SKY CRAWLERS
10) STUDIO GHIBLI: THE DVD COLLECTION
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found at here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
