New arrivals for the week of November 1, 2011
Cars 2
Crazy Stupid Love
Water for Elephants
Tabloid

Greetings everyone,

We got a pretty small box of new releases this week but there are still a few titles worth mentioning: "Cars 2" (w/the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, etc), "Crazy Stupid Love" (w/Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Julianne Moore), and "Water for Elephants" (w/Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon). Also new this week, Errol Morris' "Tabloid" which follows the hard to believe life of late-70s tabloid regular, and former Miss Wyoming, Joyce McKinney. We got a few other new documentaries as well: "The Last Mountain" looks at the struggles of a tiny Appalachian community wanting to use the last great Appalachian mountain for a wind farm rather than allowing a coal mining corporation to strip mine it and "Without a Home" follows one woman's journey as she tries to understand homelessness in Los Angeles.

Once again, Hayao Miyazaki dominates the Japanese Animation wall. Seven of the Top 10 titles are his (and the #1 spot is held by his son) and practically everything else he's done turns up somewhere on the Top 100... for good reason, too. If you haven't watched any Anime, start with a Miyazaki title and work your way around from there. Here are the Top 10 renters from the Anime section:
1) TALES FROM EARTHSEA
2) SPIRITED AWAY (DISNEY)
3) MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
4) PRINCESS MONONOKE
5) HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
6) SUMMER WARS
7) PONYO
8) NAUSICAA: VALLEY OF THE WIND
9) CASTLE IN THE SKY
10) GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME
(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)
