New arrivals for the week of November 16, 2010
Christmas Carol
The Kids are Alright
The Last Airbender

Greetings everyone,

This week's box-office smash hits include "A Christmas Carol" (w/Jim Carey), "The Kids Are All Right" (w/Annette Bening and Julianne Moore), and "The Last Airbender" (M. Night Shyamalan). Also new this week: "Chasing Legends" documents Team Columbia-HTC as they train for and race The Tour de France, "Dancing Dreams" follows Pina Bausch and 40 teenagers preparing for the debut of her dance piece Contact Zone, and the much anticipated newly restored "Metropolis". Criterion has released Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times", Charles Laughton's "Night of the Hunter", and "Three Silent Classics By Josef Von Sternberg" (Underworld / Last Command / Docks of New York). For the mathematicians out there, we picked up Disney's "Donald in Mathmagic Land" and Terry Jones' "The Story of 1" (PBS). Check out the complete listing to see all the new titles for this week.

If you haven't made it out to any of the films in the Global Lens series at the University YMCA you'd better hurry -- there are only three more weeks left. This week's film is "Ordinary People" (dir: Vladimir Perisic, Serbia, 2009, 79 minutes, Serbian w/subtitles in English). In all, there are ten films in the Global Lens series, one is shown each Thursday at 5:30 and admission is free. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Westens":
1) THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY
2) UNFORGIVEN
3) THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES
4) HIGH NOON
5) SEARCHERS
6) A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS
7) ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST
8) FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
9) DEAD MAN
10) THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
(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)
