New arrivals for the week of February 22, 2011
Due Date
Fish Tank
Get Low

Greetings everyone,

It looks like Firehouse Pizza has opened up next door to us (in the former Bar Louie's, Panera, Coslow's, and, if you remember this far back... Hardees). I haven't eaten there yet but will try to this week. They've fenced in the outdoor seating area so I'm looking forward to some summer beer breaks in the very near future.

This week's biggest releases include "Due Date" (w/Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis), "Fish Tank" (Criterion, directed by Andrea Arnold and winner of the Cannes Jury Prize), and "Get Low" (Robert Duvall and Bill Murray). Also in this week's box: "Kings of Pastry" (documentary about the Meilleur Ouvrier de France competition, directed by Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker), "Ten Inch Hero" (cute indie-ish film w/Elisabeth Harnois, Clea DuVall, Sean Patrick Flanery and John Doe... yes, that John Doe), and "Senso" (1954, dir: Luchino Visconti, Criterion). Tons of TV stuff, too: Weeds (Season 6), Top Gear (5 seasons worth), New Tricks (Season 3), the latest season of Midsomer Murders (Set 17... Season 12) and more!

This week's "Top 10 List" is your favorite films from the General Section -- where we put everything we cannot sub-divide into some other section of the store. Here it is:
1) THE ROAD
2) THE SOCIAL NETWORK
3) WINTER'S BONE
4) RED (2010)
5) TOWN, THE
6) INVICTUS
7) SHERLOCK HOLMES (2009)
8) THE AMERICAN
9) SHUTTER ISLAND
10) THE BLIND SIDE
(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)
