New arrivals for the week of July 19, 2011
Limitless
Potiche
Take Me Home Tonight
Beauty and the Beast

Greetings everyone,

I know it's summer and all but c'mon, this heat is ridiculous! Stay inside, keep hydrated, and catch up on your movie watching. Here's what's new this week: "Limitless" (w/Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, and Abbie Cornish), "Potiche" (w/Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu), and "Take Me Home Tonight" (w/Topher Grace and Anna Faris). Other additions to the new wall include: "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" (be sure to check out PG Springer's article this week on Smile Politely), "Reggie Perrin: Series 1" (BBC, starring Martin Clunes), and "Dive!: Living off America's Waste" ("one of those rare films that's socially and environmentally smart, personal, warm, funny, and inspirational all at the same time." -- Frederick Marx, Hoop Dreams). But, the most exciting title of the week is Criterion's BluRay release of Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" -- one of my favorite films ever!

We have over 100 titles in our Environmental and Social Issues section, but they can only be on the Top 100 if they have rented in the past twelve months. So, this list only represents those 28 titles that have rented in the past year...
1) FOOD, INC.
2) AGE OF STUPID, THE
3) BACK TO THE GARDEN
4) THE COVE
5) REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN
6) FUEL (2011)
7) AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
8) LIFE + DEBT
9) 11TH HOUR
10) BURNING THE FUTURE: COAL IN...
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found at 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)
