New arrivals for the week of August 23, 2011
The Beaver
Blitz
Win Win
Secret Sunshine

Greetings everyone,

Welcome back to everyone who was gone for the summer -- those of us who stuck around had tons of fun in your absence. Keep an eye on the new release wall, the annual post-summer new release slow-down should wrap up soon. But, in the meantime, here are this week's biggest titles: "The Beaver" (Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson), "Blitz" (Jason Statham, Aidan Gillen and Paddy Considine), and "Win Win" (Paul Giamatti, Alex Shaffer and Amy Ryan). We also got a small pile of TV shows: Dexter (S5), Inspector Lewis (S3), NCIS: LA (S2), and Spin City (S5). Criterion released Lee Chang-Dong's "Secret Sunshine" while Eclipse (Criterion's "budget" line) released "The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara". Lastly, we beefed up our BluRay Anime selection with the addition of six Full Metal Alchemist titles, the complete Samurai Champloo series and seasons 1 & 2 of Yu-Yu Hakusho. Check out the full list of new arrivals below.

Here are the Top 10 rentals from the International film section over the past year:
1) THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
2) I AM LOVE
3) NEVER LET ME GO
4) THE KING'S SPEECH
5) THE GHOST WRITER
6) THE SECRET OF KELLS
7) BIUTIFUL
8) THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE
9) HARRY BROWN
10) MIDSOMER MURDERS: SEASON 12
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found at here)

By the way, we are now back to our regular, non-Summer hours: Monday - Thursday (10am-10pm), Friday (10am-midnight) Saturday (11am-midnight), Sunday (noon-10pm)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
