New arrivals for the week of July 17, 2012
Friends with Kids
Lockout
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Three Stooges

Greetings all,

Just when you thought it was safe to go outside again, they call for another heat wave! It seems like a shame to hole up inside eating chips, drinking beer and watching movies for another week but you do what you have to do, right? New titles this week include: "Friends with Kids" (w/Jennifer Westfeldt, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm), "Lockout" (w/Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace), "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" (directed by Lasse Hallstrom of "Chocolat" fame; w/Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristin Scott Thomas), and "The Three Stooges" (w/Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos). On the TV front we got "Adventure Time S1", "Dan vs S1", "Designing Women S7", "The Inbetweeners", "Leverage S4" and "Sanctuary S4". If you've already watched "Rad" and "License to Drive" but are aching for more 80's cheese, you're in luck -- "Band of the Hand" has finally been released to the masses! I'm not necessarily recommending it, just letting you know it's out there. Lastly, Criterion has announced Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby" for a late October release -- just in time for Halloween. Check out this week's complete new arrival list below.

"Downton Abbey" has knocked "Midsomer Murders" out of the #1 position in the Top 100 International Film Challenge. But, no worries, "Midsomer Murders" still holds eight spots in the Top 100 (including one in the Top 10). All three of Stieg Larsson's "Girl with..."/"Girl who..." films made the cut, too. "Run Lola Run" just barely made it but neither of my other favorites (Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" and Jean-Jacques Beineix's "Diva") did. Let's work on theat for next time, okay? Here are the Top 100 Renters for the past 12 months from our International Film Section:
1) DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 02
2) DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 01
3) A DANGEROUS METHOD
4) THE IRON LADY
5) MELANCHOLIA
6) MIDSOMER MURDERS: SEASON 12
7) TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY
8) JANE EYRE (2011)
9) AMELIE
10) SHERLOCK: SEASON 1
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Congratulations to one of my all-time favorite people and former That's Rentertainment employee, Kayla Brown, on her wedding last weekend to Rhett Prescher. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the celebration and what a celebration it was! There were quite a few other former Rentertarians in attendance along with a veritable who's-who of the local music scene. Best wishes to Kayla and Rhett!

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)
