New arrivals for the week of March 13, 2012
The Adventures of Tintin
The Descendants
Melancholia
My Week with Marilyn

Greetings everyone,

There were lots of big titles released this week: "The Adventures of Tintin" (directed by Steven Spielberg), "The Descendants" (w/George Clooney and Shailene Woodley), "Melancholia" (directed by Lars von Trier; w/Kirsten Dunst), "My Week with Marilyn" (w/Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench), "The Three Musketeers" (w/Logan Lerman, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) and "Young Adult" (w/Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson and Patton Oswalt). Timed perfectly to coincidence with the Champaign City Council's vote on plastic bags, we got "Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?" -- a documentary about single use plastic bags. Also in the world of documentaries, "Fresh: New Thinking About What We're Eating" looks at farmers on their thoughts on the future of our food. Lastly, if you missed Richard Thompson at last year's Ellnora Guitar Festival, we just got in "Richard Thompson: Live at Celtic Connection" recorded live in Glasgow just 8 months earlier. All great stuff!

Yes, I know -- you've already mentioned "Harry Potter" isn't really science-fiction... it's more fantasy. But, you see, we don't have a fantasy section so we keep it in the Science Fiction section. Come to think of it, the Twilight series probably doesn't belong in Sci-fi either if for no other reason than Eli would totally shred Edward in a cage match. That said, here are the top 100 renters from the (movies we put in the) Science Fiction section:
1) HARRY POTTER: DEATHLY HALLOWS PT 1
2) IN TIME
3) INCEPTION
4) SUPER 8
5) SOURCE CODE
6) RISE OF THE PLANET OF APES (2011)
7) HARRY POTTER & THE HALF-BLOOD...
8) STAR WARS IV: A NEW HOPE
9) LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE...
10) TRON: LEGACY
(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)
