New arrivals for the week of December 11, 2012
The Bourne Legacy
Ice Age: Continental Drift
Ted
Trade of Innocents

Greetings all,

Reading day is Thursday, finals start on Friday and Campustown will empty out a week later -- but we'll keep bringing in new titles! This week's box of goodies included: "The Bourne Legacy" (w/Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton and Joan Allen), "Ice Age: Continental Drift" (w/voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, etc), "Ted" (w/Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth MacFarlane) and "Trade of Innocents" (w/Dermot Mulroney and Mira Sorvino). "The Story of Film: An Odyssey" is an epic 15-part (over 15-hours long!) documentary on the history of movies beginning with the invention of motion pictures at the end of the 19th century all the way up to the multi-billion dollar globalized digital industry of today. Better set aside the whole weekend for that one. Criterion released Godfrey Reggio’s "The Qatsi Trilogy": Koyaanisqatsi (1983), Powaqqatsi (1988) and Naqoyqatsi (2002). By setting the story in a restaurant, and an Italian restaurant at that, "Ristorante Paradiso" is an 11-episode Anime series that looks well worth watching. Lots of good stuff! Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Break hours will kick in on Sunday, December 23rd. We'll probably start opening a bit later and closing a bit earlier but I'll let you know for sure next week. Hours will go back to normal when the dorms open on January 13th.

Other than the top few positions switching places every so often, the Top 100 list for the Film Noir section doesn't change much. New titles keep getting added as the studios clean them up a bit and/or repackage them. If you are already a die-hard fan of the genre, chance are you've seen all of the popular titles - but, with almost 150 titles in the section, I bet we have at least a few you haven't seen. If you're new to the genre, you should start with one of the most popular titles. You'll get hooked! By the way, we only keep the classic Film Noir in the section. The newer noir titles (The Long Goodbye, Body Heat, Hammett, Mona Lisa, Brick, etc ) can be found scattered throughout the store. Here are the Top 100 Renters from the Film Noir section:
1 TOUCH OF EVIL
2 MALTESE FALCON
3 DOUBLE INDEMNITY
4 KISS ME DEADLY
5 LAURA (1944)
6 MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
7 MILDRED PIERCE
8 NIGHT AND THE CITY (1950)
9 OUT OF THE PAST
10 GILDA
(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)
