New arrivals for the week of November 29, 2011
30 Minutes or Less
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Our Idiot Brother
Tucker & Dale vs Evil

Greetings everyone,

Here's what turned up in this weeks new release box: "30 Minutes or Less" (w/Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson), "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" (Werner Herzog!), "Our Idiot Brother" (w/Paul Rudd, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer and Elizabeth Banks) and "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" (w/Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk and Katrina Bowden). Also out: "The Future" (directed by and starring Miranda July of "Me and You and Everyone We Know" fame), "One Day" (Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess), and Criterion's Eclipse label released "Sabu!" (w/Elephant Boy, The Drum, and Jungle Book).

After 20-plus years of pulling, packing & shipping orders all over the world, and serving Champaign-Urbana area music fanatics' needs locally, I'm sad to announce I'll be pressing pause on Parasol Mail Order (my other store in Urbana). On the bright side, this should free up some time to make Rentertaiment even better! Over the next three weeks we'll be selling off our mail-order inventory. Have a look if you're interested: www.parasol.com

Some folks say a classic is anthing over 25 years old. But, should "Top Gun" really be kept in the "Classics" section? Here at Rentertainment we define a classic as anything older than I am. In other words, it had to come out in 1962 or earlier (with a few exceptions). Remember: my video store, my rules. When you open your video store you can set the rules however you want. In any case, here are the Top 10 renters in the Classic section:
1) CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED
2) CASABLANCA
3) BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
4) THE PHILADELPHIA STORY
5) GONE WITH THE WIND
6) SOME LIKE IT HOT
7) PATHS OF GLORY
8) MODERN TIMES
9) ON THE WATERFRONT
10) ROMAN HOLIDAY
(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)
