New arrivals for the week of May 8, 2012
Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie
Underworld: Awakening
The Vow
Kahaani

Happy finals week!

... and congratulations to everyone who is graduating! Good luck with whatever you have chosen to do next out there in the "real world". Remember, if you are moving away and worry you won't be able to find another awesome video store in that new town, check out our handy-dandy "Great Video Stores in Other Towns" list.

This week's best of the best, biggest new releases include: "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" (w/Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim), "Underworld: Awakening" (w/Kate Beckinsale), "The Vow" (w/Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum) and the much anticipated Indian film "Kahaani" (w/Vidya Balan, Parambrata Chatterjee and Dhritiman Chatterjee). We also filled in another gap in our Ebertfest collection, "The Alloy Orchestra Plays Wild and Weird" (includes 14 short films with new musical accompaniments from the acclaimed trio The Alloy Orchestra). There were also a couple of TV series additions: Big C (S2) and Chuck (S5... the final season). Lastly, Criterion released Mathieu Kassovitz's "La Haine" ("... a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at the racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France...") on BluRay. Don't study... watch a movie instead!

A note on hours: Summer hours will be kicking in the day after graduation. So, starting on the 14th we will be open Monday-Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sundays from noon - 10pm... plan accordingly.

Time to get your song and dance on! Other than the top two titles switching spots every so often, I'm not sure much changes in the Top 100 rankings of the Classic Musicals section. But, just in case you're keeping score at home, here they are, the Top 10 renters in the Classic Musicals section:
1) MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
2) SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
3) SOUND OF MUSIC, THE
4) MARY POPPINS
5) WEST SIDE STORY
6) WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
7) OKLAHOMA!
8) WIZARD OF OZ (70TH ANNIVERSARY ED)
9) LOVE ME TONIGHT
10) MUSIC MAN, 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)
