New arrivals for the week of March 1, 2011
127 Hours
Burlesque
Love & Other Drugs

Greetings everyone,

For everyone whose calendar year starts and ends with the Academy Awards -- Happy New Year! For the rest of us, we don't want to hear about how long and boring this year's awards ceremony was... we know. We are content enough to know who won what and who didn't. It looks like if it had to do with special effects, visual stuff and/or noise, "Inception" won. For just about anything else, it was "The King's Speech"... oh, and Natalie Portman struck gold with "Black Swan".

This week's biggest new releases include "127 Hours" (w/James Franco), "Burlesque" (w/Cher and Christina "Now Known Simply as Christina" Aguilera), and "Love & Other Drugs" (w/Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway). Further down in the box we have: Federico Fellini's "The Clowns", two volumes of "Dalai Lama Renaissance" (narrated by Harrison Ford) , and Max Reinhardt's 1935 version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Even further down we found "Birdemic: Shock and Terror" (rating an amazing 2.1 on IMDB) and "Faster" (w/The Rock doling out some revenge Rock style). Quite a mixed bag of releases!

This week's "Top 10 List" is your favorite films from the GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender) section:
1) A SINGLE MAN
2) 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION
3) THE BIRDCAGE
4) CABARET
5) BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER
6) LA MISSION
7) WATERCOLORS
8) I CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT
9) ANTARCTICA
10) THE ART OF BEING STRAIGHT
(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)
