New arrivals for the week of August 3, 2010
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Kick-Ass
A Prophet

Greetings everyone,

The big titles this week include a family film, a butt-whooping comedy, and an international film... in that order: "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" (based on Jeff Kinney's web and book series), "Kick-Ass" (w/Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Nicolas Cage), and "A Prophet" (France/Italy, dir: Jacques Audiard who also directed "The Beat That My Heart Skipped"). Also new this week: "Art of the Steal" (about the controversial move of the Barnes art collection to downtown Philadelphia), "Million in the Morning" (have you ever tried to watch 57 movies over 123 hours with no sleep?), and "Hubert Selby Jr: It/ll Be Better Tomorrow" (a documentary about the 20th century American writer).

This week That's Rentertainment bid farewell to four of our fellow employees: Allison (going to NYC), Bronwyn (heading overseas for a semester), Leah (heading to Washington DC for a real job), and Pat (off to Iowa City for grad school). Good luck to all!

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 CLASSIC FILMS" (we define a classic as being older than me... with a few exceptions):
1) CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED
2) CASABLANCA
3) BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
4) DIETRICH: GLAMOUR COLLECTION
5) SOME LIKE IT HOT
6) GONE WITH THE WIND
7) PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE
8) HOW TO STEAL A MILLION
9) ON THE WATERFRONT
10) TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
(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)
