New arrivals for the week of September 20, 2011
Bridesmaids
Kennedys
Set Up
Star Wars

Greetings everyone,

The biggest release of the week (doing almost $170 million at the box-office) is "Bridesmaids" (w/Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Rose Byrne). With the exception of "The Kennedys" (w/Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes) and "Set Up" (the Bruce Willis, Ryan Phillippe and Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson film no one has ever heard of), the rest of the new stuff are from TV: Body of Proof S1, Castle S3, Happy Endings S1, Hawaii 5-O S1, Law & Order LA, Mentalist S3, Mike & Molly S1, and Raising Hope S1. The big news on the BluRay front is the release of the complete Star Wars saga -- of course, there's some controversy over which versions should have been released but let's leave that to the blog-o-sphere to discuss. As always, you can see the full list of new arrivals below.

You can argue all you want about whether or not the Harry Potter films belong in the Science Fiction section but there's no arguing that if included, they dominate! Have a look at the Top 12 rentals from the SciFi section over the past year -- Harry Potter sits in seven of the positions:
1) INCEPTION
2) HARRY POTTER: DEATHLY HALLOWS PT 1
3) HARRY POTTER & THE HALF-BLOOD...
4) BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SEASON 01
5) CAPRICA: SEASON 1.0
6) HARRY POTTER & THE CHAMBER OF...
7) HARRY POTTER & THE GOBLET OF FIRE
8) IRON MAN 2
9) HARRY POTTER & THE SORCERER'S...
10) HARRY POTTER & THE ORDER OF PHOENIX (DVD
11) STAR WARS IV: A NEW HOPE
12) HARRY POTTER & PRISONER OF AZKABAN
(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)
