New arrivals for the week of February 26, 2013
Chasing Mavericks
Holy Motors
The Master
Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2

Greetings everyone,

Love it, hate it or just don't care, "Unofficial" is this Friday -- I'd say it's as good a day as any to avoid campus if you can. So, stock up on movies on Thursday, sit back and enjoy yourself on Friday, and come down to campus to survey the damage on Saturday (hopefully there will be none). This week's biggest new releases are: "Chasing Mavericks" (w/Gerard Butler and Elisabeth Shue), "Holy Motors" (w/Denis Lavant and Eva Mendes) and "The Master" (Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman). The second half of the final part of Twilight franchise, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" (w/Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning), comes out on Friday. Other titles of interest include: "How to Survive a Plague" (a look at HIV/AIDS activist groups like ACT UP and TAG), "The Loneliest Planet" (Grand Jury Prize winner at AFI Fest) and that horrible 80s film people keep asking for, "Munchies" (w/Harvey Korman playing both twin brothers). And, Criterion released Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin's "Chronicle of a Summer" (1961) and Kenji Mizoguchi's "Sansho the Bailiff" (1954). This week's complete list of new arrivals is below.

As promised last week, this week's Top 100 list is from our Stand-Up Comedy section. No surprise finding Patton "I would like a failure pile in a sadness bowl" Oswalt at the top. Although, one could argue Louis C.K. belongs up there (and I bet Jenn would) -- I'd say he's doing fine in 2nd and 3rd, though. Very nice to see my favorite, Lenny Bruce, up there too -- but, just barely making the Top 25. Regardless, plenty of laughs to be had in this section. So, if you need some late winter pick-me-up, check out some of these Top 100 Stand-Up Comedies at That's Rentertainment...
1 OSWALT, PATTON: FINEST HOUR
2 LOUIS C.K.: SHAMELESS
3 LOUIS C.K.: HILARIOUS
4 DEGENERES, ELLEN: THE BEGINNING
5 GAFFIGAN, JIM: KING BABY
6 GLOVER, DONALD: WEIRDO
7 ANSARI, AZIZ: INTIMATE MOMENTS...
8 HART, KEVIN: LAUGH AT MY PAIN
9 HART, KEVIN: SERIOUSLY FUNNY
10 HART, KEVIN:I'M A GROWN LITTLE MAN
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
