New arrivals for the week of February 1, 2011
Conviction
Let Me In
Never Let Me Go

Greetings everyone,

Well - the "storm-to-end-all-storms" was not as bad as predicted but bad enough to shut the University down for a day (only the third time I can remember that happening) and shut Renter down for half a day (for the first time I can think of... but my memory's not so good). Hopefully everyone was well stocked with food, wine and movies for the snow day! This week's new releases include "Conviction" (w/Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell and Minnie Driver), "Let Me In" (remake of the totally awesome "Let the Right One In"), and "Never Let Me Go" (w/Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Andrew Garfield). Also of note: "Monsters" (my brother says it's good), "The Tillman Story" (based Pat Tillman, who left a multimillion-dollar professional football contract to join the military -- and died in a friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan in 2004), and "Welcome to the Riley's" (w/Kristen Stewart, James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo). On BluRay, Criterion has released "Broadcast News" (1987) and Krzysztof Kieslowski's "The Double Life of Veronique" (1991). We also got the beautifully remastered Douglas Fairbanks film, "The Black Pirate" (1926). It's a great week to be snowed in!

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Documentaries". We've got over 1,500 documentaries in stock.. something for everyone. And, don't forget, on Tuesdays they are half price -- that's right, just a buck and a quarter and you can learn about something cool! Here's the list:
1) CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY
2) BABIES
3) GOOD HAIR
4) I'M STILL HERE
5) LIFE (BBC SERIES)
6) COSMOS: CARL SAGAN
7) THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE
8) PLANET EARTH: COMPLETE SERIES
9) NATIONAL PARKS, THE (KEN BURNS)
10) RESTREPO
(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)
