New arrivals for the week of October 16, 2012
Chernobyl Diaries
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Moonrise Kingdom
That's My Boy

Greetings all,

Between the debates and Felix Baumgartner's Stratos Space Jump, there's hardly been time for movies but I managed to finally catch up on a few titles -- hopefully you're ready for this week's pile, too. The top titles are: "Chernobyl Diaries" (from Paranormal Activity's Oren Peli), "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" (w/the voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, etc), "Moonrise Kingdom" (the latest from Wes Anderson; w/Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, etc) and "That's My Boy" (w/Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg). On the TV front we got "Campion: S2", "The Firm: S1", "Mad Men: S5", "Psych: S6" and "Touch: S1". Lastly, Criterion, purveyors of great film, released Joshua Marston's "The Forgiveness of Blood" (2011). You may remember his previous release, the Oscar nominee, "Maria Full of Grace". You'll find this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

We've joined Strawberry Fields, Milo's and over 40 other locally owned businesses in supporting the UC Smiles local currency effort. They're having a kick-off party on October 27th (from 4-6) at the Independent Media Center and the currency will be available to use on November 1st. Check out the UC Smiles website for more information.

In this installment of the Top 100 renters from the B-Movie section, Ed Wood has finally defeated Russ Meyer as reigning King of the B-Movies. Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" sits quite a few positions ahead of last year's #1 title, Meyer's "Faster, Pussycat! Kill!... Kill!". But, as far as sheer volumes goes, Meyer's ten Top 100 titles beat Wood's four titles hands down. The rest of the list is a mish-mash of Joe Sarno, Andy Sidaris, Something Wild, Seduction Cinema and Troma titles. Here are the Top 100 renters in our B-Movie section:
1 WOOD, ED: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
2 LAURA'S TOYS
3 BARBARIAN QUEEN I & II
4 FELICITY
5 FREAKS
6 HARD TICKET TO HAWAII
7 MEYER, RUSS: PANDORA PEAKS
8 SEXY STORYBOOK COLLECTION 2
9 SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE/2/3
10 VANESSA
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
