New arrivals for the week of January 10, 2012
Killer Elite
Moneyball
There Be Dragons
What's Your Nmber

Greetings everyone,

Winter break is all but over and in a few days campus will be packed to the gills again... who knows, it might actually get cold, too. A few highlights from this week's new arrivals box include: "Killer Elite" (w/Robert De Niro, Jason Statham, Clive Owen), "Moneyball" (w/Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman), "There be Dragons" (w/Dougray Scott, Charlie Cox), and "What's Your Number" (w/Anna Faris, Chris Evans). Also worth noting: "1911" (directed by and starring Jackie Chan), "Inspector Alleyn Set 2" (that completes the series with the exception of episode 0 which hasn't been relased), and Rod Lurie's 2011 remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 classic, "Straw Dogs" (w/Dustin Hoffman, Susan George, T.P. McKenna), "Straw Dogs" (w/James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard).

Note: There are just a few more days of winter break hour mode: Monday-Friday (10-10), Saturday (11-10), and Sunday (noon-10). We'll go back to regular hours on Monday.

Some video stores have sections for drama, war and romance. We just throw all those titles together in our General section... unless, of course, the title fits better in the Foreign, Documentary or even the Bikers From Hell section. In any case, our General section is a catch all for anything that doesn't fit in better somewhere else. Here are the Top 10 Renters from the General section:
1) THE HELP
2) BLACK SWAN
3) THE TREE OF LIFE
4) THE SOCIAL NETWORK
5) WATER FOR ELEPHANTS
6) THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU
7) LIMITLESS
8) PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 4: ON...
9) BLUE VALENTINE
10) 127 HOURS
(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)
