New arrivals for the week of June 19, 2012
Big Miracle
Jeff, Who Lives at Home
Project X
Wanderlust

Greetings all,

It seems a bit early for the Dog Days of Summer to be here -- but these past few days (and the next few) seem to fit the definition to a T. Watching movies indoors is the obvious remedy. This week's biggest titles are "Big Miracle" (w/Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Kristen Bell and Ted Danson), "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" (w/Jason Segel, Ed Helms and Susan Sarandon), "Project X" (w/Thomas Mann, Jonathan Daniel Brown and Oliver Cooper) and "Wanderlust" (w/Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd). Another giant stack of TV shows arrived, too: "Curb Your Enthusiasm S8", "Franklin & Bash S1", "Louie S2", "Trial & Retribution S5", "Web Therapy S1" and "Wilfred S1". And, Criterion released Spalding Gray's filmed monologue "Gray's Anatomy". Scroll down to see the full list of new arrivals below.

This weekend we'll be hanging the Parkland College Graphic Design II Class Poster Project. This year's assignment: re-imagine film posters in the style of Jason Munn. The students all did a great job! We'll leave them up at least through the summer -- make sure you swing by and have a look.

The Film Noir section continues getting more and more popular and more and more titles are being released (some for the first time). Many are even being cleaned up a bit for the ultimate BluRay treatment. If you are already a fan of Film Noir, I bet we have at least a few you haven't seen yet. If you're new to the genre, why not start with the most popular renters? By the way, we only keep the classic Film Noir in the section. The newer noir titles (The Long Goodbye, Body Heat, Hammett, Mona Lisa, Brick, etc) can be found scattered throughout the store. Here are the Top 10 Renters from the Film Noir section:
1) TOUCH OF EVIL
2) DOUBLE INDEMNITY
3) MALTESE FALCON
4) NAKED CITY
5) NIGHT AND THE CITY (1950)
6) SUNSET BOULEVARD
7) BLACK ANGEL (1946)
8) KILLING, THE
9) MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
10) MILDRED PIERCE
(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)
