New arrivals for the week of January 17, 2012
Abduction
Courageous
The Ides of March
Mysteries of Lisbon

Greetings everyone,

Happy new semester and the crazy weather patterns that came with it! This week's biggest titles are: "Abduction" (w/Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins), "Courageous" ("Four men, one calling: To serve and protect"), "The Ides of March" (w/Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei) and "Mysteries of Lisbon" (directed by Raul Ruiz). Also new this week: Kevin Hart's "Laugh at My Pain", "Merlin Season 3", "Sarah Jane Adventures Season 4" and "Oz & James: Drink to Britain" (this time on a quest to find the drink that defines modern Britain). And, Criterion released Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic" (2000) on BluRay.

How does one define a "Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender" film? We started our GLBT section with films from a handful of self-defined GLBT video labels and with titles included in Top 100 lists from various GLBT web sites. We have since added titles we feel fit the genre and have occaisionally left some out. As with many sections in the store, sometimes it's hard to decide what goes where -- at least it's in the store somewhere. In any case, here are the Top 10 Renters from the GLBT section:
1) I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS
2) KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, THE
3) BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER
4) PARIS IS BURNING
5) BEST LESBIAN SHORTS: VOL. 1
6) MILK
7) SINGLE MAN, A
8) BEST GAY SHORTS: VOLUME 1
9) BLOOMINGTON
10) CABARET
(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)
