New arrivals for the week of January 1, 2013
Cosmopolis

The Trouble with Bliss

Happy New Year, everyone!

I hope everyone can look back at last year fondly and is looking forward to the coming new year. I know I am. This week's new arrivals include "Cosmopolis" (w/Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche), "Little Birds" (w/Juno Temple and Leslie Mann), "Looper" (w/Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt) and "The Trouble with Bliss" (w/Michael C. Hall, Brie Larson, Lucy Liu, etc). Those last two titles should be here on Friday. New titles on the TV wall include SyFy's "Being Human: Season 2", FX's "Justified: Season 3" and the BBC show "Trials & Retribution: Series 6". For cycling fans, "The Last Kilometer" follows two generations of racers (the older Davide Rebellin and the younger Ignazio Moser, son of cycling champion Francesco Moser) through a season of training and racing. PezCycling News says it's "A worth having movie about cycling". Next week all the crazy release schedules of the past few weeks should go back to normal. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Break hours from now until school starts up again: We'll be opening at 11:00 (except on Sunday when we'll open at noon) and closing at 9:00 (except on Friday and Saturday when we'll stay open until 10:00). We will resume regular hours when the dorms open on Sunday, January 13th.

"The Shining", the #1 Horror Film from last time around, got knocked down a few notches by some new comers but it's still pretty impressive to see "The Shining" (from 1980!) in the Top 10 -- and both "Cabin in the Woods" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" are pretty good. Here are the Top 100 Renters for the past 12 months from our Horror Film Section:
1 CABIN IN THE WOODS, THE
2 ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER
3 SHINING, THE
4 28 DAYS LATER
5 INNKEEPERS, THE
6 SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
7 PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3
8 INSIDIOUS
9 STRANGERS, THE
10 UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING
(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)
