New arrivals for the week of June 7, 2011
Just Go with It
Sanctum
True Grit

Greetings everyone,

Today's heat index is 100! I think that means 100 out every 100 people doing anything outside will be sweating. That sounds like a perfect reason to stay inside watching movies to me. This week's big titles include: "Just Go with It" (w/Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston), "Sanctum" (w/Richard Roxburgh, Ioan Gruffudd and Rhys Wakefield), and "True Grit" (w/Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld). Also of note: "The Company Men" (w/Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones and Kevin Costner), "Eco School House" (about a community working together to build a sustainable future for its children), and "Fat Head" (Tom Naughton's response to "Super-Size Me"). Lastly, a box of TV stuff: The Big C (S1), Breaking Bad (S3), Burn Notice (S4), Leverage (S3), New Tricks (S4) and White Collar (S2).

The world of Wikipedia defines a B-Movie as "a low-budget commercial motion picture that is not definitively an arthouse or pornographic film". That seems fair. Here are the Top 10 B-Movies rentals from the past year:
1) THE SEDUCTION OF MISTY MUNDAE
2) WOOD, ED: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
3) BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
4) FREAKS
5) MEET THE FEEBLES
6) MEYER, RUSS: PANDORA PEAKS
7) NEKROMANTIK
8) SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE/2/3
9) FELICITY
10) FINAL FLESH
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Reminder: Rentertainment has switched to Summer hours. Our hours are now 11-10 every day except on Sunday when we'll open at noon.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
