New arrivals for the week of November 13, 2012
Brave
Nitro Circus
Savages
The Watch

Greetings all,

New this week: "Brave" (w/voices of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, etc), "Nitro Circus: The Movie" (w/Gregg Godfrey and Jeremy Rawle), "Savages" (directed by Oliver Stone; w/Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir) and "The Watch" (w/Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade). Criterion released Jean-Luc Godard's "Weekend" (1967) and Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Trilogy of Life" (The Decameron, The Canterbury Tales and Arabian Nights). Although you should probably only watch it on the giant screen of the newly restored Virginia Theatre, "Lawrence of Arabia" has finally come out on BluRay. If you don't have one already, it might be time to build a home theater! We also got the first three season's of the Australian crime series, "Underbelly". Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Fall break hours (that's next week!) will remain pretty much the same as our regular hours -- the only difference being we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (that's the 22nd) and no films will be due then. So, stock up on Wednesday for that post-lunch couch slump session.

When we opened in 1985, Woody Allen had already directed 16 full-length movies. Since then he has released another 28 -- that's one per year! His style has changed considerably over the years but he's consistently made great films. It might be fun to watch them all over again this winer -- in chronological order. By the way, a couple of the films in our WA section ("The Front" and "Play it Again, Sam") were not directed by Allen but he's in them (and he wrote the latter) so we keep them there. In the ever uplifting words of Woody Allen, "If my films make one more person miserable, I'll feel I have done my job." Here they are, the Top 44 Woody Allen films:
1 MIDNIGHT IN PARIS 2011
2 ANNIE HALL 1977
3 WHATEVER WORKS 2009
4 MANHATTAN 1979
5 HANNAH AND HER SISTERS 1986
6 EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED... 1972
7 TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN 1969
8 MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY 1993
9 MATCH POINT 2005
10 LOVE AND DEATH 1975
(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)
