New arrivals for the week of January 3, 2012
Contagion
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
I Don't Know How She Does It
Shark Night

Happy New Year!

There were a handful of new titles this week: "Contagion" (w/Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon), "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" (w/Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce), "I Don't Know How She Does It" (w/Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan), and "Shark Night" (from the director of "Final Destination"). Also in this week's new arrival box we found some new TV stuff: Justified S2, Royal Pains S3 V1, and Shamless S1. On my mother's recommendation I watched "Oz & James Big French Wine Adventure" and loved it. If you are a fan of French wine and/or the British Top Gear show, you should give this a try. There seems to be a follow-up, too ("Oz & James Drink to Britain") -- watch for it on the New Arrivals shelf soon.

Note: we are still in winter break hour mode: Monday-Friday (10-10), Saturday (11-10), and Sunday (noon-10). We'll go back to regular hours once school starts up again.

The Film Noir section has been building steam lately. In the last few months 20% more titles have been rented. It must be because people are realizing how awesome the genre is. If you need some tips on what to watch, why not start with the most popular renters? Here are the Top 10 Renters from the Film Noir section:
1) DOUBLE INDEMNITY
2) TOUCH OF EVIL
3) MALTESE FALCON
4) MILDRED PIERCE
5) OUR MAN IN HAVANA
6) LAURA (1944)
7) NAKED CITY
8) NIGHT AND THE CITY (1950)
9) OUT OF THE PAST
10) SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS
(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)
