New arrivals for the week of August 10, 2010
Date Night
Joneses

Greetings everyone,

The bigger than average releases this week include: "Date Night" (w/Steve Carrell and Tina Fey), "Death at a Funeral" (w/Chris Rock, Tracey Morgan, Danny Glover, etc), and "The Joneses" (w/Demi Moore and David Duchovny). We also got in "My Name is Khan" -- a blockbuster Indian film. Criterion has released two Terry Zwigoff films: "Crumb" and "Louie Bluie" (as seen at the 2004 edition of Ebertfest alongside Leah Mahan's "Sweet Old Song")... both at the top of my "to watch" pile.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Environmental and Social Issues Films":
1) FOOD, INC.
2) COVE, THE
3) NO IMPACT MAN
4) CRUDE: THE REAL PRICE OF OIL
5) FOOD BEWARE: FRENCH ORGANIC...
6) REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN
7) DAVID VS. MONSANTO
8) KING CORN
9) DIRT! THE MOVIE
10) FUTURE OF FOOD, THE
(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)
