New arrivals for the week of October 2, 2012
Dark Shadows
Peace, Love & Misunderstanding
People Like Us
Red Lights

Greetings all,

This week it took two boxes to bring us all the new releases! The biggest titles in the pile were "Dark Shadows" (w/Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter), "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" (w/Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Elizabeth Olsen), "People Like Us" (w/Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde and Michelle Pfeiffer) and "Red Lights" (w/Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro and Elizabeth Olsen). "Racing Dreams" is a great documentary about three pre-teen World Karting Association's National Pavement Series racers with aspirations of becoming NASCAR drivers. It does what "On the Ropes" and "Hoop Dreams" did for boxing and basketball, respectively. There was also huge stack of TV stuff: 2 Broke Girls S1, 30 Rock S6, American Horror Story S1, Army Wives S6, Big Bang Theory S5, Gossip Girl S5, New Girl S1, Person of Interest S1, Private Practice S5 and Vampire Diaries S3. Criterion released Luis Buñuel's "Belle de Jour" (1967) and Wong Kar-wai's "In the Mood for Love" (2000) on BluRay. Lastly, two all but out-of-print and frequently asked for titles have finally been re-released: Wim Wender's "Hammett" (1982) Doris Dörrie's "Men" (1985). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

If you think animated films are just for children, think again. When we first opened we made that mistake, we had a shelf in the store labeled "Children's Films" -- we kept all the animated movies there. One day Richard Leskosky walked in and suggested I change the section to "Animated Films" instead. Now we have over 1,500 Animated movies and I can promise you a fair chunk of them are not the usual Disney fare -- and there are a lot of gems back there. Here are the Top 10 rentals from the Animated section:
1 SIMPSONS, THE: SEASON 14
2 PUSS IN BOOTS
3 KUNG FU PANDA 2
4 THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN
5 DESPICABLE ME
6 TANGLED (2010)
7 UP
8 WALL-E
9 FANTASTIC MR. FOX
10 RATATOUILLE
(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)
