New arrivals for the week of September 27, 2011
Carlos
papers
Race Across the Sky
Without Men

Greetings everyone,

There was not a single box-office hit released on DVD this week -- "Without Men" (w/Eva Longoria and Christian Slater) is the only thing to have have shown in theaters recently (and it gets a horrible reviews on IMDB). That is not to say nothing good came out this week. Criterion released the 330 minute uncut version of "Carlos" (the story of Venezuelan revolutionary Ilich Ramírez Sánchez), "Papers" is the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18, "Race Across the Sky" is the story of the 2009 Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, and "Slanted Sceen" examines the portrayal Asian men in film and television. There are also, as always, tons of new TV shows on DVD. You can see the full list of new arrivals below.

The wall of Television shows continues to be one of the most popular section in Rentertainment -- we have thousands of them. Coming up with a top 10 is a bit trickier than with other sections because of all the different seasons and series. So, what I did was to just list the first instance of each titles (in other words, The Wire doesn't get to fill five of the top ten spots). Also, British television, Doctor Who, Star Trek, MST3k, etc are not represented in the TV section -- they have their own sections. In any case, here are the Top 10 renters in the TV section:
1) THE WIRE
2) MAD MEN
3) MODERN FAMILY
4) TREME
5) TRUE BLOOD
6) IN TREATMENT
7) BREAKING BAD
8) DEXTER
9) BONES
10) FRINGE
(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)
