New arrivals for the week of June 14, 2011
Battle: Los Angeles
Hall Pass
Red Riding Hood

Greetings everyone,

The blockbuster's this week include: "Battle: Los Angeles" (w/Aaron Eckhart, Michael Pena, Bridget Moynahan and Michelle Rodriguez), "Hall Pass" (w/Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis), and "Red Riding Hood" (w/Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman). Also of note: two more Doctor Who titles (#133 and #148), Les Blank's "J'ai été au bal" (aka "I Went to the Dance", a documentary about Cajun and Zydeco music and the people who make it), and the latest from Oscilloscope "Le Tigre: Who Took the Bomp" (documenting Le Tigre's latest tour). Lastly, the FBI/Supernatural/Thriller TV series "Haven" came out on both DVD and BluRay as did Chatreechalerm Yukol's "The Kingdom of War" (the continuation of "The Legend of Suriyothai"). There's plenty to choose from this week. Have a look at the full list down below.

Classic Musicals reside in the back of the store by the Classics, Hitchcock and Operas. We have two basic rules for what can go in this section: 1) It has to be a musical and 2) It has to be older than me (of course, with a few exceptions). Here are the Top 10 Classic Musicals rentals from the past year:
1) SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
2) MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
3) SOUND OF MUSIC
4) WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
5) MARY POPPINS
6) THE MUSIC MAN
7) GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES
8) WEST SIDE STORY
9) WIZARD OF OZ (70TH ANNIVERSARY ED)
10) AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
(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)
