New arrivals for the week of September 11, 2012
For Greater Glory
Girl in Progress
Snow White & the Huntsman
What to Expect When You Are Expecting

Greetings all,

After a bit of delay, we finally managed to get most of our new releases for the week. Here are the biggest of them: "For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada" (w/Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria and Bruce Greenwood), "Girl in Progress" (w/Eva Mendes, Cierra Ramirez, Matthew Modineand Patricia Arquette), "Snow White & the Huntsman" (w/Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron), "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (w/Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Lopez). Although we got back-ordered on some of the TV stuff, a few titles managed to find their way into the box: Blue Bloods S2, Castle S4, Spartacus S2 (Vengeance) and Up All Night S1. We should see the rest of this week's stuff by the weekend. Check out the complete list of what did arrive below.

The Western genre got a nice push in 2010 with the release of the Coen Brothers remake of "True Grit" (w/Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld) which has managed to stay in our Top 10 ever since. This time around it got pushed out of the #1 spot by another relative newcomer, "Unforgiven" (1992). In fact, four out of the top 10 titles are relatively new westerns -- and, as big a fan of The Man with No Name and other "classic" westerns as I am, it's nice to see a few good ones still being made. So, here they are -- the Top 10 renters from the Westerns section:
1 UNFORGIVEN (1997)
2 TRUE GRIT (2010)
3 BLACKTHORN (2011)
4 FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, A
5 BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID
6 GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, THE
7 SEARCHERS
8 OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, THE
9 FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE
10 HATFIELDS & MCCOYS (2012)
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Search engine update: No big changes this week but hopefully I'll figure out how to get a search box on the front page in the next few days and maybe add a search by genre, director and/or country in the very near future. The in-store customer computer is back up and running but in a temporary (and bad) location. We'll find it a proper home soon. As always, please let me know if you run into any problems with the new search engine and/or have any suggestions.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
