New arrivals for the week of January 24, 2012
50/50
Real Steel
The Whistleblower
Godzilla

Greetings everyone,

There were only a handful of new releases this week: "50/50" (w/Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen), "Real Steel" (w/Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly), "The Whistleblower" (w/Rachel Weisz, Monica Bellucci, and Vanessa Redgrave), and Criterion's release of Ishiro Honda's 1954 "Godzilla" (all on both DVD and BluRay). For some reason, "Paranormal Activity 3" was released on BluRay today but the DVD doesn't come out for another few weeks -- we've got a handful of the DVDs that came with the BluRays for now, more soon. With 11 academy Awards nominations, "Hugo" is, of course, all the talk these days but there still isn't a DVD release date yet. I'll let you know as soon as I have one. But, for all you Midsomer Murders fans out there -- Set 19 is coming out February 28th. If you haven't started watching this yet, you've got some catching up to do!

With the recent release of "Paranormal Activity 3", I am not surprised to see parts 1 and 2 turn up on the Top 10 renters from the Horror Section. Likewise with Scream (since Scream 4 came out recently). I'm also not surprised to see old standards like "The Shining" and "The Exorcist". But, what is the 2010 re-make of "I Spit On Your Grave" doing up there? In any case, here are the Top 10 Renters for the past 12 months from our Horror Film Section:
1) INSIDIOUS
2) PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2
3) THE SHINING
4) I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (2010)
5) SCREAM
6) SCREAM 4
7) LET ME IN
8) PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
9) DEVIL
10) THE EXORCIST
(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)
