New arrivals for the week of November 22, 2011
Conan the Barbarian
Sarah's Key
Spy Kids 4
Super 8

Greetings everyone,

Happy fall break! Everything has slowed down a bit but don't worry, the new releases continue coming in: "Conan the Barbarian" (w/Jason Momoa and Rachel Nichols), "Sarah's Key" (w/Kristin Scott Thomas), "Spy Kids 4" (w/Jessica Alba, Mason Cook, Rowan Blanchard, Joel McHale and Jeremy Piven), and "Super 8" (w/Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning). Also out: "The Devil's Double" (w/Dominic Cooper and Ludivine Sagnier), "Doctor Who: Season 6, Part 2", and Criterion's release of Sidney Lumet's "12 Angry Men" (1957) -- all on both DVD and Bluray. By the way, we'll be closed on Thanksgiving and closing at 10 on Friday and Saturday this week but will otherwise be here. C'mon by!

With “Black Friday” just a few days away and “Shop Local Saturday” coming up just twenty-four hours later, I thought now would be a good time to revise our local business page and add a Shop Local Pledge. I hope you can use this pledge for yourself, your family and friends, and/or any community groups you may be involved with. Have a look (and feel free to pass it along): Shop Locally

I'm not sure much changes in the Top 10 rankings of the Classic Musicals section. But, just in case you're keeping score at home, here they are, the Top 10 renters in the Classic Musicals section:
1) SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
2) MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
3) MARY POPPINS
4) SOUND OF MUSIC, THE
5) WEST SIDE STORY
6) MUSIC MAN, THE
7) WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
8) WIZARD OF OZ (70TH ANNIVERSARY ED)
9) BRIGADOON
10) FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
(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)
