New arrivals for the week of December 20, 2011
Colombiana
Dolphins Tale
Midnight in Paris
Warrior

Greetings everyone,

This week's new arrival box included "Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame" (Andy Lau, Bingbing Li, Carina Lau, Tony Leung Ka-fai), "Fright Night" (Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell), "Kung Fu Panda 2" ($165.2 million in the box office?), and "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" (James Franco, Freida Pinto, Tom Felton, John Lithgow). A few other titles of note: "The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975" (70s Swedish Television documentary about the Black Power Movement), the Iranian film "Circumstance", and "Talking Heads: Chronology" (18 live performances from across Talking Heads' career -- I bet there's some footage of semi-local celeb Adrian Belew in there).

This week is finals week after which campustown will predictably empty out. So, next week we'll go into winter break hour mode (the only change will be closing at 10 on the weekends instead of midnight). But, you can look forward to easier parking, shorter lines at your favorite campustown restaurants, and more of your favorite films being in stock at Rentertainment. It's a great time to be in Urbana-Champaign!

We have well over 100 titles in our Cooking section but they can't make the Top 100 list unless they've rented in the past year. So, this list only includes the 15 titles that have rented in the past 12 months. Either no one likes to cook, everyone already know how to cook, or no one likes watching shows about cooking. But, apparently when you do watch cooking shows, you watch America's Test Kitchen which sits firmly in the top spot (and occupies another) and Julia Child who has three titles in the top 10... a wine show even made the list! Here are the Top 10 Cooking Shows at Rentertainment:
1) AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 11
2) BEST FOOD EVER
3) FRENCH CHEF, THE: PART 1
4) OLIVER, JAMIE: FOOD ESCAPES
5) F WORD: GORDON RAMSAY: SERIES 03
6) FRENCH CHEF, THE: PART 2
7) HELL'S KITCHEN: SEASON 05
8) CHILD, JULIA: KITCHEN WISDOM
9) HELL'S KITCHEN: SEASON 2
10) PEPIN, JACQUES: ESSENTIAL
(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)
