New arrivals for the week of February 15, 2011
Unstoppable
Waiting for Superman
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Greetings everyone,

Last week, Todd (who owns the awesome Wild and Woolly Video in Louisville, KY) stopped by Rentertainment to have a look around, chat and eat some dinner (at Casablanca, not Rentertainment). He runs a great store, is very active in the Keep Louisville Weird movement (aka Buy Local First), and is an all around great guy. In any case, it was very nice to meet a fellow independent video store owner -- we are all but extinct. If you are ever in Louisville, be sure to check his store out and say hello to the Wild and Woolly crew.

This week's top releases include "Unstoppable" (w/Denzel Washington and Chris Pine), "Waiting for Superman" (a documentary about public education in the United States from the director of "An Inconvenient Truth"), and "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" (the latest from Woody Allen). We also got all three seasons of "The Guardian" (with The Mentalist's Simon Baker), two more seasons of "Skins" (now being re-imagined for American TV), and yet another Doctor Who item -- "Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol". Lots of new BluRay titles, too -- have a look at the full list below.

This week's Top 10 Rental list is:
film noir n.
1. A movie characterized by low-key lighting, a bleak urban setting, and corrupt, cynical characters.
2. The genre or style of such movies.
[French : film, film + noir, black.]
1) TOUCH OF EVIL
2) DOUBLE INDEMNITY
3) MALTESE FALCON
4) MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
5) MILDRED PIERCE
6) SUNSET BOULEVARD
7) DETOUR
8) BIG HEAT, THE
9) CAPE FEAR (1961)
10) LAURA (1944)
(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)
