New arrivals for the week of November 2, 2010
Centurion
The Pacific
Toy Story 3

Greetings everyone,

Disney-Pixar's "Toy Story 3" is by far the biggest release of the week. The other big (but not nearly as big) new releases are "Centurion" and the TV mini-series "The Pacific". Other new arrivals this week include: "Chelsea on the Rocks" (a documentary on the legendary NY residence), "Land Girls" (BBC drama series following four members of the Women's Land Army), "Law & Order UK: Season 1" (who even knew that existed?), and the documentary "Winnebago Man" (in search of the angriest, foul-mouthed Winnebago salesman in the world). The BluRay titles I'm most excited about are "The Bridge on the River Kwai" and an import copy of "I Love You Phillip Morris" (starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor -- with no domestic release in sight). Check out the complete listing to see all the new titles from this week.

We are now in the sixth week of the Global Lens series at the University YMCA. This week's film is "My Tehran For Sale" (dir: Granaz Moussavi, Iran, 2009, 97 minutes, Farsi and English, w/subtitles in English). 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: www.universityymca.org/globallens/

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Science Fiction Films":
1) MOON
2) BOOK OF ELI, THE
3) DISTRICT 9
4) BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SEASON 04.5
5) IRON MAN 2
6) DAYBREAKERS
7) HARRY POTTER & THE HALF-BLOOD...
8) TWILIGHT: NEW MOON
9) AVATAR
10) BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SEASON 01
(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)
