New arrivals for the week of October 25, 2011
Captain America
A Little Help
Winnie the Pooh
Rare Exports

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest releases are "Captain America: The First Avenger" (w/Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell), "A Little Help" (w/Jenna Fischer, Chris O'Donnell, Rob Benedict), and "Winnie the Pooh". Oscilloscope released "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale" ("...a wildly original re-imagining of the most classic of all childhood fantasies and a darkly comic gem destined for perennial holiday viewing") and Criterion released Michelangelo Antonioni's "Identification of a Woman" (1982), Erle C. Kenton's "Island of Lost Souls" (1932, w/Charles Laughton) and Kaneto Shindo's "Kuroneko" (1968). Also, two documentaries of interest: "Daguerreotypes" is about the small shopkeepers of the rue Daguerre in Paris and "Lemonade" looks at the world of advertising professionals who have lost their jobs and now need to be creative with their own lives.

The Top Renter list this week is Animation. Not all cute and funny, and definitely not just for kids, everyone should be able to find something they enjoy in the Animation Section. Here are the Top 10 renters from our Animation Section (remember, animated films rent for 1/2 price on Sundays):
1) TOY STORY 3
2) DESPICABLE ME
3) HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
4) TANGLED (2010)
5) MEGAMIND
6) RANGO
7) UP
8) LION KING
9) RIO
10) MY DOG TULIP
(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)
