New arrivals for the week of January 18, 2011

Greetings everyone,

It's back-to-school all over campus this week. If you've been gone, welcome back! This week's bigger new-release titles include "Freakonomics" (film version of the bestselling book about incentives-based thinking), "Stone" (w/Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, and Milla Jovovich), and "Takers" (bank heist film... need I say more?). Also on the new release wall: "Animal Kingdom" (the Australian "Goodfellas"), "Justified: Season 1" (modern-day Western hero based on the character created from crime novelist Elmore Leonard), and "Paper Man" (w/ Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone). Also, from across the ocean, "Merlin: Season 2" and "Waking the Dead: Series 5" have been released. On the BluRay front, Criterion has released two more titles: Samuel Fuller's "Shock Corridor" (1963) and "Naked Kiss" (1964).

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Comedies":
1) THE BIG LEBOWSKI
