New arrivals for the week of September 28, 2010
Get Him to the Greek
Iron Man 2
The Killer Inside Me

Greetings everyone,

The summer blockbusters are starting to hit Rentertainment's New Release wall: "Get Him To The Greek" (w/Russell Brand, Jonah Hill and Rose Byrne), "Iron Man 2" (w/Robert Downey Jr, Sam Rockwell and Scarlet Johansson), and "The Killer Inside Me" (w/Cassey Affleck and Jessica Alba) all came in his week. In addition, there were a few smaller theatrical releases: "Babies" (a documentary following four babies from around the world: Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo), "Frozen" (ski-lift horror), and "Good" (w/Viggo Mortensen; a authors dilemma during the rise of national socialism in Germany). To round it all out, we also got two more sets of Poirot movies, the second set of Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, and Criterion's latest release, "The Thin Red Line". Lastly, "Suck" is a rock and roll vampire movie that only caught my eye because of a few names towards the bottom of the cast: Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Moby, Alex Lifeson, and Henry Rollins -- how bad could it be?

Global Lens kicks off at the University YMCA this Thursday with a free screening of "Adrift" (Vietnam, 2009, dir: Bui Thac Chuyen). In all, ten films will be shown, one each Thursday at 5:30. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Films":
1) SINGLE MAN, A
2) BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
3) BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER
4) ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK, AN
5) I CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT
6) OUTRAGE
7) MILK
8) BOYS DON'T CRY
9) ART OF BEING STRAIGHT, THE
10) CABARET
(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)
