New arrivals for the week of January 29, 2013
Cold Light of Day
Downton Abbey: Season 3
Hotel Transylvania
Seven Psychopaths

Greetings everyone,

Crazy weather, eh? It kind of makes planning for anything difficult. Thankfully, I still have have plenty of films in my "to watch soon" pile. So far, we have gotten three of this week's five bigger titles: "Cold Light of Day" (w/Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver), "Downton Abbey: Season 3" (w/Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, etc) and "Hotel Transylvania" (w/voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, etc). By Friday we should have: "Paranormal Activity 4" and "Seven Psychopaths" (w/Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits). On the TV front, "Femme Fatales: S1", "Life's Too Short: S1", "Pan Am", "SMASH: S1" and "Waking the Dead: S7" all came out. Also, Hal Hartley's second film, "Trust" (starring the amazing Adrienne Shelly and Martin Donovan), has finally been released on both DVD and BluRay. More great stuff to add to the pile. This week's complete list of new arrivals is below.

George Harrison has kept his #1 spot on the Top 100 Music Video rental list for another round. The Quiet One is followed closely by Oscilloscope's latest release, Shut Up and Play the Hits (LCD Soundsystem). The rest of the Top 10 include the newly remastered Yellow Submarine, Led Zeppelin's 2007 reunion concert, and Jonathan Demme's Neil Young documentary, Journeys. Here are the Top 10 renters from our Music Section:
1 HARRISON, GEORGE: LIVING/MAT WORLD
2 SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS: LCD...
3 BEATLES: YELLOW SUBMARINE
4 YOUNG, NEIL: JOURNEYS
5 TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET (R. KELLY)
6 LAST DAYS HERE
7 LED ZEPPELIN: CELEBRATION DAY
8 MELLENCAMP, JOHN: IT'S ABOUT YOU
9 PINK FLOYD: THE WALL
10 PIXIES, THE: LOUD QUIET LOUD
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
