New arrivals for the week of September 18, 2012
The Babymakers
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
The Cabin in the Woods
Hysteria

Greetings all,

Let's get right to it -- this week's biggest new titles: "The Babymakers" (w/Olivia Munn and Paul Schneider), "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (w/Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench), "The Cabin in the Woods" (w/Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth and Anna Hutchison) and "Hysteria" (w/Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jonathan Pryce, etc). Also new this week, "Chico & Rita" was a 2012 Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature Film (it got beat out by Rango). Criterion released Marcel Carné's "Children of Paradise" (1945) and Vittorio De Sica's "Umberto D" (1952). And, the Indiana Jones BluRay box set arrived. Lastly, we got the epic Robert Lepage production of Wagner's "Der Ring Des Nibelungen" (2012) from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. And, if that's not enough Wagner for you, we got the documentary, "Wagner's Dream", which follows the making of the Met Ring. All of that should be more than enough to keep you busy for another week. Check out this week's complete new arrivals list below.

We are starting to close in on the 4k mark in the BluRay drawers and they now represent 1 in 8 of all rentals. There's probably still no need to rush out and pick up a BluRay player but if that old DVD player of yours should die, why not spring the extra few bucks and upgrade. That said, here are the Top 10 rentals in our BluRay section -- almost all TV titles!
1 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 01
2 TRUE BLOOD: SEASON 04
3 SHERLOCK: SEASON 2
4 CAPTAIN AMERICA: FIRST AVENGER
5 DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 02
6 MODERN FAMILY: SEASON 02
7 BREAKING BAD: SEASON 03
8 HAYWIRE
9 THOR
10 BREAKING BAD: SEASON 02
(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)
