New arrivals for the week of October 5, 2010
Karate Kid
Secret of Kells
Splice

Greetings everyone,

As fall kicks into high-gear with its eclectic 38-79 degree temperature swings, more summer hits are popping up in our weekly box-o-fun. This week's box included: "The Karate Kid" (the all new 2010 version w/Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan), "The Secret of Kells" (international animated medieval adventure), and "Splice" (w/Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley; directed by Vincenzo Natali of Cypher and Cube fame). Also in this week's box of goodies: "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" (the latest from Werner Herzog, w/Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe and Chloe Sevigny) and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (the all-new 2010 version w/Jackie Earle Haley). By the end of the week we should be getting the new Ken Burns Baseball documentary, another season of Midsomer Murders, and a few more Criterion titles (The Magician, Darjeeling Limited and Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence on BluRay).

The second film in the Global Lens series will be shown at the University YMCA this Thursday. This week's film is "Becloud" (Mexico, 2009, 117", dir: Alejandro Gerber Bicecci). In all, ten films will be shown, one each Thursday at 5:30. Admission is free. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Horror Films":
1) PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
2) THE WOLFMAN
3) THECRAZIES (2010)
4) JENNIFER'S BODY
5) PONTYPOOL
6) THE SHINING
7) DRAG ME TO HELL
8) ORPHAN

10) THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL
(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)
