New arrivals for the week of August 21, 2012
Bernie
Dictator
A Separation
Weekend

Greetings all,

Students are flooding back to campus, the new White Horse Inn is open (and serving fancy sausages!) and I'm busy taking my turn in the jury pool at the Champaign County Court House. But, the new releases continue showing up and this week's box included: "Bernie" (w/Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey), "The Dictator" (w/Sacha Baron Cohen... aka Ali G, Borat, Bruno, etc), "A Separation" (Iran; directed by Asghar Farhadi; w/Peyman Moaadi and Leila Hatami) and "Weekend" (Criterion; directed by Andrew Haigh; w/Tom Cullen and Chris New. Note: Criterion will be releasing Godard's "Weekend" in November). We also finally got Bela Tarr's latest, "The Turin Horse". The newest additions to the TV wall are: The Closer (S7 -- the final season), House (S8), NCIS Los Angeles (S3), NCIS (S9) and Revenge (S1). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

By the way, we are back to our regular hours but we've change those a bit. From here on out, Rentertainment will be open: Monday - Friday (10am - 10pm), Saturday (11am - 10pm), Sunday (noon - 10pm)... no more late nights on the weekends -- but, you don't want to be driving on campus then anyway!

With the recent theatrical release of Marvel's "The Avengers", it's no surprise seeing "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Thor" at the top of the Sci-Fi Top 100 list and both Hulk and Iron Man not too far behind. The latest installment of the Batman franchise ("The Dark Knight Rises") has helped push it's predecessors towards the top, too. It looks like a pretty great list this week! Anyway, here they are, the Top 100 renters from the Science Fiction section:
1 CAPTAIN AMERICA: FIRST AVENGER
2 THOR
3 SUPER 8
4 STAR WARS IV: A NEW HOPE
5 BATMAN: DARK KNIGHT
6 LORD OF THE RINGS: FELLOWSHIP
7 STAR WARS V: EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
8 ALIEN
9 HARRY POTTER: DEATHLY HALLOWS PT 2
10 BATMAN BEGINS
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
