New arrivals for the week of November 30, 2010
Knight and Day
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Greetings everyone,

Yesterday's cold and biting winds really made it feel like winter might finally be upon us... perfect or staying in, drinking Scotch, and watching movies! This week's biggest releases are "Knight and Day" (w/Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz), "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (Disney's latest w/Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, and Teresa Palmer), and "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (w/Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). Some other titles of note include: "Life in Flight" (w/Patrick Wilson and Amy Smart), "Ten Thousand Points of Light" (a documentary about a Christmas-obsessed, Elvis-worshiping family in Georgia) and "Valhala Rising" (directed by Nicholas Winding Refn of "The Pusher Trilogy", "Bronson", and writer of one episode of Miss Marple fame). Check out the full listing for more of this weeks new additions to our collection.

We've made it full circle with our Top 100 lists. So, it's time to start at the beginning again. Turn it into one of those "Can you spot the differences..." games! This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Animated films":
1) UP
2) HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
3) FANTASTIC MR. FOX
4) 9
5) TOY STORY 3
6) CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS
7) DARIA: COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES
8) THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG
9) WALL-E
10) PLANET 51
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

The penultimate film in the Global Lens series will be shown this week at the University YMCA. This week's film is "The Shaft" (Dixia De Tiankong) (dir: Zhang Chi, China, 2008, 98 minutes, Mandarin 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.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
