New arrivals for the week of August 30, 2011
House Season 7
Nikita Season 1
Sons of Anarchy Season 3
Orpheus

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest titles don't interest me (another Tyler Perry Madea title and Disney's Prom) so I'll tell you about the major TV releases instead: Desperate Housewives S7, House S7, Nikita S1, Sons of Anarchy S3, and Vampire Diaries S2. From the other side of the ocean we got: Doc Martin (The Movies), Judge John Deed S2 & S3, and Murphy's Law S4 & S5. Criterion released Lindsay Anderson's "If...", Jean Cocteau's "Orpheus", and "The Complete Jean Vigo" on BluRay. So, no worries -- even if you're not a Madea fan, there's plenty to watch this week. Check out the full list of new arrivals below.

We have 116 Jazz and Blues DVDs but our Top 100 lists only count those that have been rented in the past 12 months... in this case that's just 22 titles. If you are interested in watching any of them, any of the Top 10 listed here would be a great start...
1) JAZZ: A FILM BY KEN BURNS
2) DAVIS, MILES: MILES DAVIS STORY
3) ICONS AMONG US: JAZZ IN THE PRESENT
4) YOU SEE ME LAUGHIN'
5) BLUES STORY
6) BLUES: MARTIN SCORSESE PRESENTS
7) MINGUS, CHARLES: LIVE IN '64
8) MONK, THELONIOUS: STRAIGHT NO...
9) BAKER, CHET: LET'S GET LOST
10) BASIE, COUNT: LIVE IN '62
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found 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)
