New arrivals for the week of September 13, 2011
Hesher
Meek's Cutoff
Thor
Bill Cunningham New York

Greetings everyone,

"Leading Ladies" is finally on DVD! Filmed and produced right here in Champaign-Urbana, they used a lot of local talent along with some of the top contestants from "So You Think You Can Dance". Have a look through the credits, you might recognize a few names. You'll definitely know a few of the filming locations. So, if you didn't make it to the premiere, now's your chance to see it in the comfort of your living room...

Bigger and bigger new release boxes have started showing up at Renter headquarters. Here are the highlights of this week's haul: "Hesher" (w/Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman and Rainn Wilson), "Meek's Cutoff" (dir: Kelly Reichardt of "Wendy and Lucy" and "Old Joy"; w/Michelle Williams and Bruce Greenwood), and "Thor" (w/Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman). As usual, there are a bunch of new TV series, too: Blue Bloods S1, Camelot S1, Glee S2, Grey's Anatomy S7, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia S6, Private Practice S4, Rescue Me S6, Sanctuary S3 and Supernatural S6. "Bill Cunningham New York" is a documentary about New York photographer Bill Cunningham (thus the title). It has gotten universal rave reviews. And, Criterion has been sticking to their fast and furious release schedule by putting out two more titles on BluRay: Robert Altman's "3 Women" and Lasse Hallstrom's "My Life as a Dog". There's lots more -- see the full list below.

For this week's Top 100 list I merged the Performing Arts (almost 150 titles) and Opera (over 60 titles) sections because neither rent enough to generate its own Top 100 listing. Even so, we only have 69 titles that have rented at least once in the last year. So, here they are, the Top 69 rentals from the Performing Arts and Opera sections:
1) INTO THE WOODS (PA)
2) CANDIDE (PA)
3) CATS (PA)
4) CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: CIRQUE REINVENTE (PA)
5) RENT: LIVE ON BROADWAY (PA)
6) SUNDAYS IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (PA)
7) ART OF PIANO, THE (PA)
8) BRENDEL, ALFRED: IN PORTRAIT (PA)
9) CALLAS, MARIA: LA DIVINA (OPE)
10) CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: ALEGRIA (PA)
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
