New arrivals for the week of May 3, 2011
The Dilemma
From Prada to Nada
The Green Hornet

Greetings everyone,

It's a slow week for new releases but there are a few bigger titles: "The Dilemma" (w/Vince Vaughn and Kevin James), "From Prada to Nada" (A Latina spin on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility", w/Camilla Belle and Alexa Vega) and "The Green Hornet" (w/Seth Rogen, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz). Also in the new arrival box this week: "Mao's Last Dancer" (based on the autobiography of Li Cunxin, principal ballet dancer who defected to the USA in 1981), "My Own Love Song" (w/Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker), and "Waiting for Forever" (w/Rachel Bilson and Tom Sturridge). Lastly, we finally got the final two volumes of Sharpe's adventures to complete our collection -- 14 in all!

In case you didn't make it to all the Ebertfest films this year (or just want to watch a few of the films again), here are this year's films and their availability on DVD and BluRay:
45365 (2010) -- not available
I Am Love (2010) -- DVD/BR
Leaves of Grass (2010) -- DVD/BR

Just 18 more days until the Illini 4000 roll out on their 5th cross-country bicycle ride -- this time from New York to San Francisco. So far this year they've raised over $112,000 for the American Cancer Society Research Fund and Camp Kesem at University of Illinois -- I think that's the most on any of their trips... well done! I've been lucky enough to get to ride with them on a few of their training rides. All the riders seem to be both physically and mentally ready and are very excited about starting their summer adventure. They'll be passing through the Urbana-Champaign area in early June. I'll let you know when in case you want to come out and help welcome them. To read more and/or make a donation to the Illini 4000 have a look at their web-site (www.illini4000.org).

Here at the Rentertainment Data Crunching Division, we are pleased to announce BluRay discs are rapidly approaching the 10% of all rentals mark. And, why not? Better picture, better sound, and often times better special features... and we have over 2300 of them. So, this week's Top-10 list is the top renters for the past year from the "BluRay" section:
1) THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
2) INCEPTION
3) THE SOCIAL NETWORK
4) IRON MAN 2
5) LIFE (2009)
6) SHERLOCK: SEASON 1
7) TOY STORY 3
8) GREEN ZONE
9) ROBIN HOOD (2010)
10) MAD MEN: SEASON 01
(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)
