New arrivals for the week of December 27, 2011
Apollo 18
Final Destination 5
First Grader
Love Crime

Greetings everyone,

The next few weeks will be a bit slim for blockbuster releases but an excellent time to catch up on a couple of the previous ones you might have missed. There were, however, a handful of new bigger titles this week: "Apollo 18" (w/Warren Christie, Ryan Robbins), "Final Destination 5" (w/Emma Bell, Nicholas D'Agosto), "The First Grader" (w/Naomie Harris, Tony Kgoroge) and "Love Crime" (w/Ludivine Sagnier, Kristin Scott Thomas). Also new this week: "Archer: Season 2" (a well done animated spy film spoof), "The Borgias: The First Season" (w/Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family in Renaissance-era Italy), and "Brighton Rock" (modern day British film noir w/Sam Riley, Andrea Riseborough and Helen Mirren). And, for some reason there is a 4th season of "Jersey Shore" -- and for some reason we bought it... sorry.

Note: we are still 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 31st. We'll go back to regular hours once school starts up again.

The Environmental and Social Issues section is a sub-section of the Documentary section. We've got well over 100 titles for folks interested in subjects like solar power, child slavery, sustainable food, animal rights, etc. Btw, another great local source for Environmental issues is The Green Observer -- they just put out their second issue and it's really great! Here are the Top 10 rentals form the ESI section:
1) FOOD, INC.
2) FORKS OVER KNIVES
3) AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
4) FUEL (2011)
5) BACK TO THE GARDEN
6) THE COVE
7) ECO SCHOOL HOUSE
8) FOODMATTERS
9) INVISIBLE CHILDREN
10) REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found at here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
