New arrivals for the week of December 7, 2010
Inception
Restrepo
Shrek Forever After

Greetings everyone,

A few of our new release boxes got delayed this week so watch for some of the new releases to trickle in as the week progresses. This week's biggest releases are "Inception" (w/Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard), "Restrepo" (w/Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger), and "Shrek Forever After" (w/Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, etc). Also in the new arrivals pile: "Dancing Across Borders" (a documentary about Cambodian dancer Sokvannara Sar), Season One of the new BBC police thriller, "Luther", and Angie Dickinson and William Shatner in "Big Bad Mama". Later today we should also be getting three more Doctor Who titles. Highlights in the BluRay section include Disney's "Fantasia", the newly restored "Metropolis", and Criterion's new releases of Guillermo del Toro's "Cronos" and David Cronenberg's 1983 horror film "Videodrome". Check out the full listing for more of this weeks new additions to our collection.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 American Independent films". We started the American Independent Film section with the help of our good friend Robert Carringer who suggested we make a section in the store for films that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. We've since taken a few liberties with placement of a few of the films but the spirit of the section remains. Here are the Top 10:
1) BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN
2) THE KILLER INSIDE ME
3) THE ROOM
4) PRIMER
5) PAPER HEART
6) TRUCKER
7) ADAM
8) DONNIE DARKO
9) WONDERFUL WORLD
10) GIGANTIC
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

The final film in the Global Lens series will be shown this week at the University YMCA. This week's film is "Shirley Adams" (dir: Oliver Hermanus, 2009, 92 minutes, English and Afrikaans w/subtitles in English) and will be shown Thursday, December 10th at 5:30. As always, admission is free. In all, there were ten films in the Global Lens series, one shown each Thursday. Next year Global Lens will become a monthly event. More information can be found on the University YMCA web-site.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
