New arrivals for the week of March 6, 2012
Footloose
Immortals
Jack and Jill
The Skin I Live In

Greetings everyone,

It would apper that spring is here! This week's biggest titles include: "Footloose" (w/Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough and Dennis Quaid), "Immortals" (w/Henry Cavill, Kellan Lutz and Mickey Rourke), "Jack and Jill" (w/Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes and Al Pacino) and "The Skin I Live In" (dir: Pedro Almodovar; w/Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya). Also of note: "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone" (documentary about "one of the most original bands of the last 25 years"), "The Myth of the American Sleepover" (first full-lengthe film by director David Robert Mitchell), and a couple more Doctor Who episodes. On BluRay we got two more Hitchcock titles ("Spellbound" and "To Catch a Thief"), more Disney animation ("Lion King" 1.5 and 2) and a sampler of things to come from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (just three episodes, full seasons to follow soon).

For this week's Top 100 list I merged the Performing Arts (almost 150 titles) and Opera (over 60 titles) sections because neither rent enough to generate its own Top 100 listing. Even so, we only have 67 titles that have rented at least once in the last year. Opera fans: follow the link for a complete list of the operas we stock (with a short description and box art). In any case, here they are, the Top 10 rentals from the Performing Arts and Opera sections:
1) GENIUS WITHIN: THE INNER LIFE OF... (PA)
2) SUNDAYS IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (PA)
3) 1776 (PA)
4) MAGIC FLUTE, THE (2003) (OPE)
5) COMPANY (2007) (PA)
6) MADEA CHRISTMAS, A: THE PLAY (PA)
7) INTO THE WOODS (PA)
8) CATS (PA)
9) CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: CIRQUE REINVENTE (PA)
10) MEMPHIS (PA)
(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)
