New arrivals for the week of December 18, 2012
Arbitrage
killer_joe
Premium Rush
Total Recall

Greetings all,

Wow -- this year sure is wrapping up in a hurry. I've still got lots to do! New arrivals this week include "Arbitrage" (w/Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and Brit Marling), "Killer Joe" (w/Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch and Juno Temple), "Premium Rush" (w/Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon) and "Total Recall" (w/Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel). We somehow missed "Pitch Perfect" (w/Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Elizabeth Banks) but should have it on Friday. In "An Idiot Abroad", Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant send Karl Pilkington overseas with the expected hilarious results. The first nine episodes of the Itialian series "Detective Montalbano" (based on the international best-selling mystery novels by Andrea Camilleri) arrived -- we should be getting more soon. And, "Doctor Who: Series 7, Part 1" finally showed up. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Break hours: It looks like we'll be keeping our regular hours at least through the end of the year. As always, we'll close at 8:00 on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, be closed on Christmas Day, and open at noon on the 1st. We'll probably start opening a bit later and closing a bit earlier after New Year's but I'll let you know for sure next week. In any case, hours will go back to normal when the dorms open on January 13th.

In the Top 100 General Films standings, the second adaptation of John Le Carre's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" remains in the top position for a second time and "Hugo" (based on Brian Selznick's amazing book, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret") is runner-up. Nice to see Quentin Tarantino's 18 year old "Pulp Fiction" in the top 10, too. Lots of good stuff here -- including a few I haven't seen yet... time to make a pile for the holidays! In any case, here are the Top 100 Renters from the General section:
1 TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY (2011)
2 HUGO
3 DRIVE
4 TAKE SHELTER
5 MARGIN CALL
6 MONEYBALL
7 MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE
8 PULP FICTION
9 GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (2011)
10 SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS
(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)
