New arrivals for the week of January 11, 2011
Cafish
Piranha
The Social Network

Greetings everyone,

We are finally starting to get back into the new release groove! This week's box included "Catfish" (a documentary "of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue"), "Piranha" (Don't scream... just swim!), and "The Social Network" (all about Time magazine's Man of the Year and The Facebook). We also got two volumes of "The Adventures of Tintin" (based on Hergé's Tintin, one of the most popular European comic strips of the 20th century), "Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement" (a documentary about feisty and delightful lesbian couple who are finally getting married after 42 years), and the first season of the "Ricky Gervais Show". Criterion released two more BluRay discs: Jean-Pierre Melville's "Army of Shadows" (1969) and Byron Haskin's "Robinson Crusoe on Mars" (1964). Also on BluRay -- The Man with no Name Trilogy (Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad and the the Ugly)... now do you need a BluRay player?

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Classics" (with "classic" being defined as being older than me... with a few exceptions):
1) CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED
2) CASABLANCA
3) BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
4) HOW TO STEAL A MILLION
5) TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
6) GONE WITH THE WIND
7) PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE
8) ROMAN HOLIDAY
9) SOME LIKE IT HOT
10) MODERN TIMES
(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)
