New arrivals for the week of May 22, 2012
The Secret World of Arrietty
Red Tails
This Means War
Woman in Black

Greetings all,

The weather people are predicting a stinking hot Memorial Day weekend for us. I suggest stocking up on beer, snacks and movies and holing up at home until the first sign of snow. Luckily, there's lots of new stuff for this week: "The Secret World of Arrietty" (from Studio Ghibli/Disney; dir: Hiromasa Yonebayashi), "Red Tails" (w/Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr), "This Means War" (w/Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon) and "The Woman in Black" (w/Daniel Radcliffe). Quite a few TV shows, too: "The River: S1", "Rizzoli & Isles: S2", "S.W.A.T.: S2" and, saving the best for last, "Sherlock: S2". On the documentary shelf you'll find "The Rock-afire Explosion", all about a struggling inventor, an animatronic rock band and the Showtime Pizza Place. And, Criterion released Abbas Kiarostami's "Certified Copy" (2010) on DVD and BluRay. This week's complete list of new arrivals is below.

"Bridesmaids" has managed to hold onto the #1 spot for another round in the Top Comedy listings. If you haven't seen it yet, you probably ought to. There are a few new comers to the list but overall it seems to stay pretty consistant. In any case, here are the Top 10 renters from our Comedy section:
1) BRIDESMAIDS
2) MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
3) BEGINNERS
4) CRAZY STUPID LOVE
5) 50/50
6) YOUNG ADULT
7) BIG LEBOWSKI, THE
8) RUM DIARY, THE
9) EVERYTHING MUST GO
10) 30 MINUTES OR LESS
(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)
