New arrivals for the week of June 28, 2011
Beastly
Season of the Witch
Sucker Punch
Dam Busters

Greetings everyone,

Vanessa Hudgens has been busy... she's is in two out of three of this week's biggest titles: "Beastly" (w/Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens), "Season of the Witch" (w/Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman), and "Sucker Punch" (w/Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung and Abbie Cornish). We also added a few sets to the TV series: "George Gently: S3", "Rizzoli & Isles: S1", and "Spectacle: S2 (Elvis Costello)". Oscilloscope released the British drama "The Unloved" (w/Robert Carlyle, Molly Windsor, and Lauren Socha) and Criterion has released Louis Malle's "Zazie dans le metro" and "Black Moon" and Robert Siodmak's "People on Sunday" (all three on DVD and BluRay). On a customer recommendation, we picked up the 1955 British WWII film, "Dam Busters" -- it looks great (and word has it, a remake is in the works). As always, plenty to choose from! See the full list below.

Donnie Darko and Agent 99 managed to knock the Dude out of the number one position in this week's top 10 list. In fact, "The Big Lebowski" dropped all the way down to #3 (and, I'm sure if "Ishtar" was available on DVD it would drop at least another position). In any case, here are the Top 10 Comedy rentals from the past year:
1) LOVE & OTHER DRUGS
2) GET HIM TO THE GREEK
3) THE BIG LEBOWSKI
4) EASY A
5) IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY
6) DUE DATE
7) GET LOW
8) SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD
9) THE HANGOVER
10) HOT TUB TIME MACHINE
(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)
