New arrivals for the week of December 4, 2012
Beasts of the Southern Wild
The Dark Knight Rises
Hope Springs
The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Greetings all,

Last week the Common Ground Food Co-op in Urbana opened their (our?) coffee-bar. This week they're rolling out the wine and beer. Soon the sandwich and pizza counter should be open. Wow... just, wow! Some great video titles also came out this week: "Beasts of the Southern Wild" (w/Quvenzhane Wallis and Dwight Henry), "The Dark Knight Rises" (w/Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway), "Hope Springs" (w/Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell) and "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" (w/Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton). Also new: another box of Mystery Science Theater 3000 films (volume 25, I think), "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry" is a documentary about the Chinese artist and political activist, and "Butter" stars Jennifer Garner in the cut-throat world of butter carving competitions. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Along with the American Politics films, the Environmental and Social Issues section is a sub-section of our Documentary collection. There are well over 100 titles for folks interested in subjects like alternative energy, child slavery, sustainable food, pollution, animal rights, etc. Fwiw, other great local resource for Environmental issues are The Green Observer, Illinois Green Business Association, and Students for Environmental Concerns. Here are the Top 30 titles in the ESI section:
1 FARMAGEDDON
2 FORKS OVER KNIVES
3 LIFE + DEBT
4 FOOD, INC.
5 GENETIC CHILE
6 E2: INTERVENTION ARCHITECTURE
7 EARTH AT RISK
8 FOODMATTERS
9 KING CORN
10 NO IMPACT MAN
(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)
