New arrivals for the week of September 6, 2011
Everything Must Go
Hanna
X-Men: First Class
Midsomer Murders

Greetings everyone,

I walked down Green Street for the first time in a few weeks yesterday -- quite a few things have changed: Sliders (burgers and Belgian fries) is now open, Big Mouth has closed and is now a Mexican/American grill, Zyggy's has closed and is being replaced by a Thai place, the old 7-11 is now a liquor store, Derald's (who took over the Ye Old spot) has closed making room for someone to re-open a donut shop there (please?), and Antonio's Pizza doesn't look like it will be re-opening after a full summer of having a "Closed today" sign on the door. Progress is being made on the Zorba's/Za's building -- windows are in upstairs so I imagine building out the interior is next. Let's hope they both get re-opened soon. There seems to be lots of activity on campus -- I need to get out more!

This week's new release box included: "Everything Must Go" (w/Will Ferrell and Rebecca Hall), "Hanna" (w/Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett) and "X-Men: First Class" (which won't be released until Friday). There were also a ton of new TV series released this week: Community S2, Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior, Criminal Minds S6, Fringe S3, The Good Wife S2, Midsomer Murders S12, The Office S7, Parks & Recreation S3, and Two and a Half Men S8. Check out the full list of new arrivals below.

I've been accused of not keeping our music section terribly up-to-date. Based on the list below, though, that is obviously a misconception -- we have the Justin Bieber film! I suppose the rest of the list might be considered a bit old-timey. Oh well, here are the Top 10 rentals from our Music section:
1) BEATLES: ANTHOLOGY
2) GENIUS WITHIN: THE INNER LIFE OF GLENN GOULD
3) PINK FLOYD: THE WALL
4) UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US
5) DOORS: WHEN YOU'RE STRANGE
6) LEMMY
7) BIEBER, JUSTIN: NEVER SAY NEVER
8) EAGLES: HELL FREEZES OVER
9) TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE
10) DYLAN, BOB: NO DIRECTION HOME
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Lastly, this past weekend I had the honor of attending former Rentertarian Jessica Horn and all around great guy Gabe's wedding -- it's always wonderful to see one of our own so incredibly happy. Congratulations to the very beautiful couple!

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
