New arrivals for the week of October 12, 2010
I am Love
Jonah Hex
Leaves of Grass

Greetings everyone,

New releases this week include: "I am Love" (w/Tilda Swinton), "Jonah Hex" (w/Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Megan Fox), and "Leaves of Grass" (w/Edward Norton, Time Blake Nelson and Kerri Russell). Also new this week: "Baseball: The Tenth Inning" (the latest from Ken Burns), "Let Your Feet do the Talkin'" (a documentary about Thomas Maupin, national buckdancing champion) and "The Wall: A World Divided" (a PBS documentary about the period between when the Berlin wall was built in August, 1961, and ultimately dismantled in November, 1989). And, for all you "Midsomer Murders" fans -- the next box set is here. It's Set 16 but it's part of Series 11... regardless, you'll find it in the British Mysteries section. Lastly, for some reason they (the good folks in Hollywood) thought it would be a good idea to release "How to Train Your Dragon" on Friday the 15th instead of using a regular Tuesday release date... so, we'll put them on the shelves Friday morning, first thing.

Web-site users: I've done a bit of tweaking to the advanced search page on our web site. You can now generate a list of films that have arrived in the past 3-months (you used to be limited to 1-week or 1-month) and I added a page of Search Tips (example: to find all the German films that have arrived in the past 3-months type Germany in the "description" field and set the "Since when?" field to 3-months). Let me know if you have any suggestions to make things even better.

The third film in the Global Lens series will be shown at the University YMCA this Thursday. This week's film is "Gods" (Peru, 2008, 91", dir: Josué Méndez). 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 Jazz/Blues Films":
1) ICONS AMONG US: JAZZ IN THE PRESENT
2) JAZZ: A FILM BY KEN BURNS
3) YOU SEE ME LAUGHIN'
4) BLUESLAND
5) ELLINGTON, DUKE: COPENHAGEN
6) MONK, THELONIOUS: STRAIGHT NO...
7) SIMONE, NINA: LIVE IN 63 & 68
8) ADDERLEY, CANNONBALL: LIVE IN '63
9) ARMSTRONG, LOUIS: LIVE IN '59
10) BASIE, COUNT: LIVE IN '62
(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)
