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

Greetings everyone,

As the year winds down you'll notice the number of new releases winds down, too... but, there's still some good stuff! This week's box included: "Colombiana" (w/Zoe Saldana), "Dolphin Tale" (w/Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr, Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson), "Midnight in Paris" (Woody Allen's latest w/Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, etc) and "Warrior" (w/Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte). After much delay, we finally got Julie Taymor's "The Tempest" (w/Helen Mirren and Felicity Jones) and Orson Welles' "The Magnificent Ambersons" (w/Joseph Cotton). That's two more we can cross off our perpetual DVD shopping list.

Also, just in time for winter training -- the 2011 Cycling Spring Classics and Grand Tours are here: Tour de France (12 hours!), Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Ghent-Wevelgem/Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, and Liege-Bastogne-Liege/Fleche Wallonne. Watch 'em while eating donuts on the couch... you know, for the carbs!

Please note, we are in winter break hour mode: Monday-Friday (10-10), Saturday (11-10), and Sunday (noon-10) and we'll close at 8:00 on the 24th and the 31st. We'll go back to regular hours once school starts up again.

Our documentary section is awesome (if I may say so myself). We've got over 1,500 titles packed on those shelves! You can learn all about science, people, business, far away places... pretty much anything you want. Some of my favorites include "Gates of Heaven", "Hands on a Hard Body", "Okie Noodling" and "Stone Reader" -- only one of which shows up on our Top 100. Here are the Top 10 rentals in the Documentary section (to see Errol Morris' "Gates of Heaven" you'll have to check out the full Top 100):
1) INSIDE JOB
2) CATFISH
3) RESTREPO
4) WAITING FOR SUPERMAN
5) BABIES
6) WONDERS OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM
7) THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE
8) IF A TREE FALLS
9) KINGS OF PASTRY
10) BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK
(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)
