New arrivals for the week of August 2, 2011
Perfect Game
Rio
Soul Surfer
Kartemquin Volume 2

Greetings everyone,

Hard to believe there are just three weeks of summer left on campus -- the new semester is right around the corner. This week's biggest titles are: "The Perfect Game" (Clifton Collins Jr., Cheech Marin, and Moises Arias), "Rio" (animated w/the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, and Leslie Mann), and "Soul Surfer" (based on the true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton; w/AnnaSophia Robb, Dennis Quaid, and Helen Hunt). Other titles of note include: "Kartemquin Films Collection: The Early Years Volume 2" (Kartemquin Films is an amazing not-for-profit organization founded in 1966 to make documentary films; Volume 3 will be out in later this month), the new British detective series (that takes place in Rome) "Zen: Vendetta Cabal Ratking" (w/Rufus Sewell and Caterina Murino), and "The Music Never Stopped" (w/J.K. Simmons, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Julia Ormond). Check out the full list of new arrivals below.

Here are the Top 10 rentals from the General section -- our catch-all for films we just can't find another place for:
1) THE SOCIAL NETWORK
2) WINTER'S BONE
3) BLACK SWAN
4) HOWL
5) 127 HOURS
6) UNKNOWN (2011)
7) SALT
8) RED (2010)
9) THE LINCOLN LAWYER
10) WALL STREET
(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)
