New arrivals for the week of January 25, 2011
Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest
Red
Secretariat

Greetings everyone,

In case you missed it -- the 2011 Oscar nominations were announced yesterday. The big three were The King's Speech (w/12 nominations), True Grit (w/10) and "The Social Network" (w/8). No word yet on when the Ebertfest line-up will be announced. This week's big new-release titles include: "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" (the third and final installment of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” trilogy), "Red" (with Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren wielding a Heckler & Koch MP5K!), and "Secretariat" ("Behind every legend lies an impossible dream"). Also in this week's new release box: "Enter the Void" ("Pure, outlandish outlaw cinema"), "Nowhere Boy" (all about the young John Lennon), and "Saw: The Final Chapter" (we can only hopes so). And, on the TV wall we've added "Glee: Season 2, Part 1", "Justified: Season 1" (BluRay, too), and "MI-5: Season 8".

Even though we have over 100 titles in our Cooking section, they can't make the Top 100 unless they have rented in the past year. So, this list only represents those 24 titles that have rented. Either no one likes to cook, everyone already know how to cook, or no one likes watching shows about cooking. But, apparently when you do watch cooking shows, you watch America's Test Kitchen which sits in over a third of the top spots. Without further ado, this week's top renter list is "Top 10 Cooking Shows":
1) AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 09
2) FRENCH CHEF, THE: PART 1
3) GOURMET'S DIARY OF A FOODIE: S1
4) TWO FAT LADIES
5) AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 05
6) AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 08
7) AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 06
8) F WORD: GORDON RAMSAY: SERIES 01
9) IRON CHEF AMERICA: BATTLE OF...
10) JAMIE'S KITCHEN
(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)
