New arrivals for the week of March 12, 2013
The Flat
Hitchcock
Life of Pi
Rise of the Guardians

Greetings everyone,

Spring break is next week and campus will be emptying out -- but, here at Renter we'll be keeping our regular hours. As you know, breaks are a perfect time to come to campus, get all the new releases at Renter and hang out at your favorite usually too busy places (like Maize, Murphy's and the Home of Gourmet). Here are this week's biggest new releases: "The Flat" (a documentary directed by Arnon Goldfinger), "Hitchcock" (w/Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren), "Life of Pi" (directed by Ang Lee) and "Rise of the Guardians" (w/voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, etc). Also found in this week's new release box: "HENRi" (a short film w/Keir Dullea and Morgot Kidder), "Mind of a Chef" (David Chang of Momofuku, sort of the TV version of Lucky Peach magazine) and the latest Cirque de Soleil film (Worlds Away). And, Criterion released Irvin S Yeaworth Jr's "The Blob" (1958). As always, this week's complete list of new arrivals is below.

The TV section is one of the most popular and well picked over sections at Rentertainment. Since we have each title listed by season, if we did a straight Top 100 the list would consist primarily of Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Wire seasons. Instead, the listing is by title and where the first instance of that title appears on the Top 100 listings. So, here are the Top 100 Television shows (actually Top 108 because there was a tie towards the end) from the past year (Note: This list does not include TV shows in found in the British Television, Science Fiction, Doctor Who, MST3K, or Star Trek sections)...

1 GAME OF THRONES
2 HOMELAND
3 TRUE BLOOD
4 BOARDWALK EMPIRE
5 BREAKING BAD
6 THE WIRE
7 TREME
8 MAD MEN
9 DEXTER
10 THE GOOD WIFE
(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)
