New arrivals for the week of May 15, 2012
Chronicle
The Devil Inside
The Grey
One for the Money

Summer is here...

... and parking on campus is abundant! Perfect, because there were quite a few heavy hitters released this week including: "Chronicle" (w/Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan), "The Devil Inside" (w/Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth), "The Grey" (w/Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney and James Badge Dale) and "One for the Money" (w/Katherine Heigl, Jason O'Mara and Daniel Sunjata). On the TV front we got Flashpoint (S4) and Hell on Wheels (S1). Also, new to the AIF sction is "Kinyarwanda" (2011 Sundance Audience Award winner) and we added "My Perestroika" ("... the story of five people from the last generation of Soviet children who were brought up behind the Iron Curtain") to the International section. As always, you may peruse the complete list of new arrivals is below.

A car is considered a classic if it's over 25 years old. Antiques are generally over 100 years old. But, movies are a bit different. Should "Throw Momma from the Train" (1987) really be kept in the "Classics" section or should it be at least as old as "Richard III" (1912)? Here at Rentertainment we define a classic as anything older than I am. In other words, it had to come out in 1962 or earlier (with a few exceptions). Remember: my video store, my rules. In any case, here are the Top 100 renters from our Classic Movie section:
1) CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED (DVD)
2) CASABLANCA (DVD)
3) BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (DVD)
4) ROMAN HOLIDAY (DVD)
5) PATHS OF GLORY (DVD)
6) PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE (DVD)
7) MODERN TIMES (DVD)
8) MELIES, GEORGES: 1ST WIZARD OF CIN (DVD)
9) ON THE WATERFRONT (DVD)
10) THIN MAN, THE (DVD)
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Remember: Rentertainment is in Summer Hours mode. We will be open Monday-Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sundays from noon - 10pm... plan accordingly.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
