New arrivals for the week of June 5, 2012
Act of Valor
John Carter
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
Safe House

Greetings all,

We got a giant box of new titles this week so let's not waste any time with the small talk... New this week: "Act of Valor" (stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs), "John Carter" (w/Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe), "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" (w/Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Michael "that's Sir Michael Caine to you" Caine), and "Safe House" (w/Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds and Vera Farmiga). There were also tons of TV shows released this week (some of which came in too late to make the update but they are on the shelves): Breaking Bad S4, Burn Notice S5, In Plain Sight S4, Pretty Little Liars S2, White Collar S3, Workaholics S2 and the 1977 TV mini-series "Washington: Behind Closed Doors" (w/Cliff Robertson, Jason Robards, Stefanie Powers and Robert Vaughn). Scroll down to see the full list below.

My favorite documentaries take a subject I previously knew nothing about (or had absolutely no interest in) and left me wanting to know more. People really fish with their bare hands? Rock-afire has a cult following? Full-contact rugby is played in wheelchairs? We've got over 2000 documentaries jammed onto those poor shelves in that section! You can learn all about science, people, business, far away places... pretty much anything you might want to know about -- or don't yet know you want to know about. So, the next time you are in, why not grab something from the documentary section -- you could even call it "doing your homework". Here they are, the Top 10 Rentals in the Documentary section:
1) TABLOID
2) IF A TREE FALLS
3) LIFE IN A DAY
4) BUCK
5) THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD
6) PROJECT NIM
7) BHUTTO
8) CATFISH
9) INSIDE JOB
10) EXPORTING RAYMOND
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Illini 4000 Ride Along! This year's Illini 4000 team (29 cyclists) will be arriving in Urbana next Monday (11th) and there will be a reception at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center at 3:00pm. On Tuesday they will be departing from the Alumni Center at 9:00am and heading towards Chicago. I am hoping to ride along at least as far as Rantoul with them but you can join in for as much or as little of the ride as you would like. For those who do not know, the Illini 4000 is a "non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against cancer, the support of those affected by cancer, and the documentation of how cancer impacts the lives of Americans." They are currently on their 6th annual cross-country trip (this year going from New York to San Francisco) and have already raised over $115k (this year alone -- they have raised over $500k overall). They are a great group and a fun bunch to ride with.

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)
