New arrivals for the week of November 23, 2010
Eat Pray Love
The Expendables
I'm Still Here

Greetings everyone,

Campus may be quiet but the new releases are still pouring in. This week's biggest titles are: "Eat Pray Love" (w/Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem), "The Expendables" (w/Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet L, etc) and "I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix" (dir: Casey Affleck). I watched "Indies Under Fire" over the weekend. It's another documentary about small independents (this time bookstores) trying to survive while fighting off the big-box corporate stores (this time Borders). Other films in that depressing but occasionally uplifting category include: "Twilight Becomes Night", "Paperback Dreams" and "I Need that Record". Criterion released the 7-film box set "America Lost and Found: The BBS Story" w/Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show, The King of Marvin Gardens, Head (Monkees), Drive He Said, and A Safe Place (the BluRay came out this week, DVD in three weeks). We also got a few more Doctor Who episodes (watch for at least three more next week), another set of MST3K, and the TV mini-series, "Pillars of the Earth". Let the Holiday Season begin!

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 BluRay discs":
1) THE HURT LOCKER
2) INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (2009)
3) DISTRICT 9
4) SHERLOCK HOLMES (2009)
5) THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
6) PUBLIC ENEMIES
7) A SERIOUS MAN
8) UP IN THE AIR (2009)
9) HARRY POTTER & THE HALF-BLOOD...
10) THE INFORMANT
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Note: That's Rentertainment will be keeping regular hours this week with the exception of being closed on Thursday (and nothing will be due on Thursday -- bonus day!).

Note #2: There will be no Global Lens movie at the University YMCA this week. The next one will be "The Shaft" (dir: Zhang Chi, China, 2008) on December 2nd. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
