New arrivals for the week of July 24, 2012
The Deep Blue Sea
Footnote
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Silent House

Greetings all,

We are just under a month away from Move-In Day here on campus and you all know what that means -- long lines at Zorba's, full bike racks, and other people renting the films you want to watch. Plan accordingly. Here's what new to the New Wall this week: "The Deep Blue Sea" (w/Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston and Simon Russell Beale), "Footnote" (w/Lior Ashkenazi and Yuval Scharf), "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" (directed by David Gelb), and "Silent House" (w/Elizabeth Olsen and Adam Trese). Also, the first season of Kelsey Grammer's "Boss" came in along with series 5 of the "Inspector Lewis" collection. "Ride the Divide" is a documentary about a 2700 mile mountain bike race along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains -- keep in mind, the Tour de France is "only" 2000 miles and it's all on paved roads... these folks are hard-core. As always, this week's complete list of new arrivals can be found below.

It's been a while since a Miyazaki title wasn't sitting at the top of the Top 100 Anime list. This time around, however, it's "The Secret World of Arrietty" -- the debut film from Hiromasa Yonebayashi, one of Miyazaki's animators. Otherwise, not much has changed in the Anime rankings over the last few months. Hayao Miyazaki is still connected to more than a few of Top 100 titles on the Japanese Animation wall (most of the Top 10, in fact). So, if you haven't watched any Anime and want to, a Miyazaki title is a great place to start. Otherwise, scan thorugh the list, something is sure to jump out at you. Here are the Top 10 Renters from the Anime section:
1) THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY
2) PRINCESS MONONOKE
3) SPIRITED AWAY
4) MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
5) NAUSICAA: VALLEY OF THE WIND
6) CASTLE IN THE SKY
7) HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
8) PONYO
9) THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME
10) TALES FROM EARTHSEA
(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)
