New arrivals for the week of October 9, 2012
A Cat in Paris
Prometheus
The Raven
Rock of Ages

Greetings all,

I'm meeting with the UC Smiles folks later this morning. They're the not-for-profit group bringing the new local currency ("Smiles") to the area. They'll be launching on November 1st -- I'll be sure to let you know if we're going to be on board. This week's biggest new releases include: "A Cat in Paris" (2012 Academy Award winner, Best Animated Feature Film of the Year), "Prometheus" (w/Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Ben Foster), "The Raven" (w/John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve) and "Rock of Ages" (w/Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, etc). Oscilloscope's newest release, "Shut Up and Play the Hits", documents LCD Soundsytem's final performance at Madison Square Garden in 2011. And, finally, "Little Shop of Horrors" (Director's Cut) has been released on BluRay. It includes both the theatrical release and the formerly super-rare (and much darker) alternate ending. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

With 165 films in our Art & Artists section, I can safely say we've got something for everyone. This week's Top 100 list only represents the 49 titles that have rented in the past year. The Top 10 hasn't changed much -- just rearranged a bit. "Exit Through the Gift Shop" stayed in the #1 spot for another month, "Helvetica" slipped to #9 but another Gary Hustwit film, "Objectified", climbed to #6. "Craft in America" and "Art: 21", both PBS series', are both in the top 10, too. So, here you have it, the Top 100 49 renters from the Art & Artists section:
1 EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
2 ART: 21: SEASON 6
3 WOODMANS, THE
4 CRAFT IN AMERICA: THREADS
5 IN THE REALMS OF THE UNREAL
6 OBJECTIFIED
7 BETWEEN THE FOLDS
8 CINEMATOGRAPHER STYLE
9 HELVETICA
10 HOMAGE TO CHAGALL
(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)
