New arrivals for the week of November 6, 2012
The Amazing Sprider-Man
Arthur Christmas
Trishna
Your Sister's Sister

Greetings all,

With the election season finally behind us, we can once again start using our TVs for what they were intended for -- watching movies! This week's new releases include: "The Amazing Spider-Man" (w/Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone -- this actually comes out Friday), "Arthur Christmas" (w/the voices of James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Hugh Laurie, etc), "Trishna" (w/Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed) and "Your Sister's Sister" (w/Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass). Olive Films and Icarus Films continue putting out great titles -- we are working on getting them all. This week we added: "Cul de Sac: A Suburban War Story", "Grin Without a Cat" (Chris Marker), "The Hellstrom Chronicle", "Johnny Guitar", "Letter From an Unknown Woman" (1948) and "Remembrance of Things to Come" (Chris Marker). We also got in lots of cool classic collections: "Charley Chase: Cut to the Chase", "Fritz Lang: Early Works" and "Mary Pickford: Rags & Riches Collection" -- and Fritz Lang's "Die Nibelungen" (1924) on both DVD and BluRay. Lastly, Criterion released Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon" on BluRay. What an amazing week for Classics, Independent and International films!

UC Smiles are here! They work just like money -- because they are money... but it all stays local. You can pick up Smiles at Strawberry Fields or International Galleries or as change at any of over 50 participating local business -- including That's Rentertainment. Check out the UC Smiles website for lots more information.

In this round of the battle of the funny-bone, "Bridesmaids" and "Midnight in Paris" swapped the #1 and #2 positions as most rented Comedies at Rentertainment. The rest of the list appears to be a mish-mash of the usual new releases, some of the old standards, and all of the Wes Anderson films. Remember, this list does not include films kept in the Classics, Independent and/or International sections... and, come to think of it, "Midnight in Paris" shouldn't even be here -- it's in the Woody Allen section. Oh well, here are the Top 100 Comedies rented at That's Rentertainment...
1 MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
2 BRIDESMAIDS
3 CRAZY STUPID LOVE
4 DARK SHADOWS
5 DICTATOR, THE
6 BERNIE
7 50/50
8 BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL
9 CARNAGE
10 FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT
(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)
