New arrivals for the week of June 12, 2012
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
Good Deeds
A Little Bit of Heaven
Sherlock Holmes

Greetings all,

The big summer releases are starting to turn up on the New Release Wall -- this week's biggest titles include: "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" (w/Nicolas Cage), "Good Deeds" (w/Tyler Perry, Gabrielle Union and Thandie Newton), "A Little Bit of Heaven" (w/Kate Hudson and Gael Garcia Bernal) and "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" (w/Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law and Noomi Rapace). Lots more new TV stuff, too: Entourage S8, Episodes S1, GCB S1, Missing S1 (w/Ashley Judd), and Scandal S1. Also, Criterion released Hal Ashby's amazing "Harold and Maude" (1971). If you've never seen it yet, watch it. If you have, it's probably worth re-watching the Criterion version. Scroll down to see the full list of new arrivals below.

The Environmental and Social Issues section is a sub-section of the Documentary section. Last time we ran this list there were only 24 titles listed -- this time there are 31! But, we've got well over 100 titles for folks interested in subjects like solar power, child slavery, sustainable food, animal rights, etc. Btw, another great local source for Environmental issues is The Green Observer -- they recently put out their fourth issue of the year and it's really great! Here are the Top 31 titles in the ESI section:
1) FOOD, INC.
2) FORKS OVER KNIVES
3) FOODMATTERS
4) FARMAGEDDON
5) ECO SCHOOL HOUSE
6) INCONVENIENT TRUTH, AN
7) KING CORN
8) COVE, THE
9) INVISIBLE CHILDREN
10) LIFE + DEBT
(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)
