New arrivals for the week of May 1, 2012
Haywire
Joyful Noise
New Year's Eve
W.E.

Greetings everyone,

With another Ebertfest behind us and finals just around the corner, it's time to catch up on some new releases you may have missed. This week's biggest titles include: "Haywire" (dir: Steven Soderbergh; w/Gina Carano, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, etc), "Joyful Noise" (w/Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer and Jeremy Jordan), "New Year's Eve" (w/Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, etc) and "W.E." (dir: Madonna; w/Abbie Cornish, Andrea Riseborough, James D'Arcy and Oscar Isaac). Also new this week: Season 6 of the excellent PBS series "Art: 21" and new seasons of "Covert Affairs" and "Suits". We'll be getting Martin Scorsese's "George Harrison: Living In The Material World" in later today or tomorrow (on both DVD and BluRay).

If you've been to our web-site lately you may have noticed the search doesn't work, most of the links didn't work for a while and for an even briefer while the entire site was gone. The site is back up, we've fixed most of the links and Renter pal Mert is working on a new search engine (for now we've put a Google search in its place). Hopefully all will be up and running again properly soon. Sorry for the downtime.

Russ Meyer remains the King of the B-Movies! No less than a dozen of his films appear in the Top 100 and his "Faster, Pussycat! Kill!... Kill!" sits firmly in the #1 position -- having knocked his own "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" out of the way to get there. Ed Wood makes a strong showing in the #3 position with "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and three of his others are in the Top 100. No Academy Award material here -- but lots of low-down dirty fun. Here are the Top 10 renters in our B-Movie section:
1) MEYER, RUSS: FASTER, PUSSYCAT...
2) MEYER, RUSS: PANDORA PEAKS
3) WOOD, ED: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
4) BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
5) FREAKS
6) IRVING KLAW CLASSICS, THE
7) LAURA'S TOYS
8) SKIN IN THE 70'S
9) VANESSA
10) WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA, THE
(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)
