New arrivals for the week of March 20, 2012
A Dangerous Method
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Romantics Anonymous
David Lean Directs NoŽl Coward

Greetings everyone,

No monster box-office smash hits this week but still a few titles worth noting: "A Dangerous Method" (w/Michael Fassbender, Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley), "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" (w/Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock) and "Romantics Anonymous" (w/Jean-Rene Van Den Hugde, Angelique Delange and Isabelle Carre). On the TV front we got: Eureka S4.5, Murder Investigation Team S2, Single-Handed S2, South Park S15, Xena Warrior Princess S3 and another box of Mystery Science Theater titles. Criterion released the 4-disc set "David Lean Directs Noel Coward" (includes: Brief Encounter, In Which We Serve, This Happy Breed, and Blithe Spirit) along with Roy Ward Baker's "A Night to Remember" (1958).

Nice to see the western genre continue to thrive here at Rentertainment. The Coen Brothers 2010 remake of "True Grit" (w/Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld) has managed to hang onto the top spot with a fistful of Clint Eastwood films following. Btw, this is really a "Top 93 " listing because only 93 titles rented out of the Westerns Section in the past year -- on the bright side, that's 9 more than in the previous year!
1) TRUE GRIT (2010)
2) FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, A
3) UNFORGIVEN
4) GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, THE
5) FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
6) SEARCHERS
7) BLACKTHORN
8) BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID
9) ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST
10) TRUE GRIT
(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)
