New arrivals for the week of February 7, 2012
Anonymous
Fireflies in the Garden
A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas
Downton Abbey 2

Greetings everyone,

This week's new release box of wonder included "Anonymous" (w/Vanessa Redgrave, Rafe Spall, Rhys Ifans and David Thewlis), "Fireflies in the Garden" (w/Julia Roberts, Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe and Emily Watson) and "A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas" (w/John Cho, Kal Penn and Neil Patrick Harris). Also, a few highly anticipated titles from the UK all came out this week: "Downton Abbey: Series 2", "Father Dowling Mysteries: The First Season", "New Tricks: Season 6" and "Northern Lights: The Complete Collection". Lastly, for what it's worth, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is listed below but comes out on Friday -- you've only got a few days to catch up and watch the first three.

Not much has changed in the last few months in the Anime rankings... Hayao Miyazaki still dominates the Japanese Animation wall. Seven titles in the Top 10 are his (and the #1 spot is by his son) and practically everything else he's done turns up somewhere on the Top 100... and for good reason. If you haven't watched any Anime, start with a Miyazaki title. If you've already seen all those and are looking for something else, it looks like the "One Piece" and "Death Note" series are wildly popular, too. Or, just go for the granddaddy of them all and grab "Akira". Here are the Top 10 Renters from the Anime section:
1) TALES FROM EARTHSEA
2) MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
3) PRINCESS MONONOKE
4) SPIRITED AWAY (DISNEY)
5) HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
6) SUMMER WARS
7) NAUSICAA: VALLEY OF THE WIND
8) GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME, THE
9) CASTLE IN THE SKY
10) PONYO
(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)
