New arrivals for the week of July 27, 2010
Accidents Happen
Clash of the Titans
Repo Men

Greetings everyone,

This week we have to stretch our definition of a "new blockbuster type film" to reach three: "Accidents Happen" (w/Geena Davis and Harrison Gilbertson), "Clash of the Titans" (w/Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes) and "Repo Men" (w/Jude Law, Forest Whitaker and Alice Braga). But, we got more than our usual average of non-blockbuster type films. Somehow we missed Patrice Leconte's "Girl on the Bridge" when it was released (even though it was an Ebertfest film) -- we've corrected that oversight. Also, "Oily Business" (the latest Ironweed release), "Jesse Stone: No Remorse" (based on the books by Robert B. Parker, starring Tom Selleck), and "Re: Frame" (a selection of seven films from contemporary Indian cinema, removed from Bollywood, that testifies to the richness of creativity in India). Lastly, two box sets of Film Noir and three sets of Grindhouse Trash also arrived. Dig in!

On Monday, the Illinois Green Business Association certified That's Rentertainment as a Green Business! With assistance from the Illinois Green Business Asociation, That's Rentertainment continues to implement as many energy saving, waste reducing and environmentally friendly practices as possible. After working with the IGBA for the past few months, we are pleased to be their 4th Certified Green Business in Champaign-Urbana (the first three businesses to be certified were the International Society of Arboriculture, B. Lime, and Ippatsu Salon). You can read more about the process and what we do to reduce, reuse and recycle by going to our web-site.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 ART FILMS" (not Art House... just Art... as in artists and stuff):
1) OBJECTIFIED
2) HANDMADE NATION
3) HELVETICA
4) IN A DREAM
5) DIED YOUNG STAYED PRETTY
6) CRAFT IN AMERICA: SEASON TWO
7) GLASER, MILTON: TO INFORM AND...
8) ALL ABOUT PRINTS
9) VISUAL ACOUSTICS
10) HARTIGAN, GRACE: SHATTERING BOUNDARIES
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
