New arrivals for the week of February 12, 2013
Alex Cross
Celeste and Jesse Forever
Flight
Here Comes the Boom

Greetings everyone,

I hope everyone enjoyed last weekend's awesome sporting event: the 2103 Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville -- Katie Compton placed 2nd for the USA in the Women's Elite division! This week's biggest new release titles include: "Alex Cross" (w/Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox and Rachel Nichols), "Celeste and Jesse Forever" (w/Rashida Jones, Andy Samberg, Elijah Wood and Emma Roberts), "Flight" (w/Denzel Washington, John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Kelly Reilly) and "Here Comes the Boom" (w/Kevin James and Salma Hayek). Also new on the new wall this week: "A Late Quartet" (w/Philip Seymour Hoffman, Imogen Poots, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener), "Little White Lies" (France; dir: Guillaume Canet w/Francois Cluzet and Marion Cotillard) and "Side by Side" (Documentary; Keanu Reeves takes us on a tour of the past and future of the moviemaking process). We also added three more titles to our Swedish TV thriller selection: Irene Huss (eps 1-3), Maria Wern (eps 1-3) and Van Veeteren (eps 1-3). We'll get another set of each soon. Lastly, on BluRay we got one of the best of the Sherlock Holmes films, "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution" (w/Alan Arkin and Vanessa Redgrave). You can check out this week's complete list of of new arrivals below.

As in the past, I am combining the Performing Arts and Opera sections to make this week's Top 100 list (actually a Top 63 because that's how many have rented in the past year) -- nice to see Richard Wagner, Alvin Ailey and Def Poetry Jam sharing the same list. Perhaps with the Chicago Lyric performing "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" this month, we'll see an uptick in interest for Wagner titles. A note for Opera Lovers: for a complete list of the operas we stock (with a short description and box art), click here. So, here they are, the Top 63 rentals from the Performing Arts and Opera sections:
1 JOFFREY: MAVERICKS OF AMERICA DANCE (PA)
2 MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, THE (PA)
3 GHOSTLIGHT (PA)
4 LOVE NEVER DIES (PA)
5 SWAN LAKE (2012) (PA)
6 1776 (PA)
7 BARYSHNIKOV, MIKHAIL: PLACE (PA)
8 JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOL... (PA)
9 TRIBUTE TO ALVIN AILEY (PA)
10 WAGNER'S DREAM (OPE)
(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)
