New arrivals for the week of December 21, 2010
Easy A
Salt
Wall Street

Greetings everyone,

When you are up against "Tron: Legacy" on the big screen, it hardly seems worthwhile to release anything on DVD. But, they did manage to squeeze out a few of the big titles: "Easy A" (w/Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes), "Salt" (w/ Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber), and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" (w/Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan). Also, M. Night Shyamalan's "Devil" arrived along with the third installment of the "Step Up" franchise (although not in 3-D, sorry). The 18-disc Elia Kazan collection finally got checked in and includes a number of films previously unavailable on DVD (including "Viva Zapata!" and "Wild River"). Also in the new arrivals awesome box-set category, "Charlie Chaplin: Chaplin at Keystone" -- a 4-disc collection of 34 restored films from Chaplin's early days. And, in the filling in the gaps category, we got copies of "Hannie Caulder" (a Raquel Welch revenge western), "Khadak" (from the director of "Antiplano"), and "Urgh! A Music War" (a classic collection of 70s and 80s punk and new-wave bands including early Police, Devo, Go-Gos, Oingo Boingo, X, Cramps, Surf Punks, Joan Jett, Pere Ubu and more... all live).

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Art Films". Even though we have over 150 films in our Art & Artists section, they can't make the top 100 unless they rent. So, this list only represents the 77 titles that have rented in the past year. "Objectified" has managed to hold on to the #1 position but I bet by the next time we run this list it will be bumped by "Exit Through the Gift Shop". Anyway, here are the Top 10 Art Films:
1) OBJECTIFIED
2) BETWEEN THE FOLDS
3) HANDMADE NATION
4) ALL ABOUT PRINTS
5) VISUAL ACOUSTICS
6) EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
7) GLASER, MILTON: TO INFORM AND...
8) HELVETICA
9) CRAFT IN AMERICA: SEASON TWO
10) ALICE NEEL
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Winter break hours: We will be keeping our regular hours over break with the exception of closing at 8 on Christmas Eve, not opening at all on Christmas Day, closing at 8 on New Year's Eve, and opening at noon on 1st day of the brand new year.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
