New arrivals for the week of April 19, 2011
Gulliver's Travels
The King's Speech
Rabbit Hole

Greetings everyone,

This week's new releases fared much better at the box office than last week's did (and one even cleaned up at the Academy Awards). They are: "Gulliver's Travels" (w/Jack Black and Emily Blunt), "The King's Speech" (w/Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter), and "Rabbit Hole" (w/Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, and Dianne Wiest). Also new and notable: two volumes of "Kiss: Kissology" (remember, Volume 2 has their infamous film, "Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park" -- two different cuts of it, no less), "Plastic Planet" (an up-close and personal view of the controversial and fascinating material that has found its way into every facet of our daily lives: plastic), and two more entries in the Sharpe's series (four more and we'll have the whole set). On BluRay we got the entire "Scream" series to date, "Mortal Kombat" (1 and 2) and a couple more Criterion titles: Jean-Pierre Melville's "Le Cercle Rouge" (w/Alain Delon) and Jane Campion's "Sweetie".

This week's Top-10 list is the top "TV Shows" from the past year (note: this list does not include TV shows in found in the British Television, Science Fiction, Doctor Who, MST3K, or Star Trek sections):
1) TRUE BLOOD
2) THE WIRE
3) MAD MEN
4) GLEE
5) MODERN FAMILY
6) LOST
7) BREAKING BAD
8) DEXTER
9) IN TREATMENT
10) BIG BANG THEORY
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found at here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
