New arrivals for the week of April 2, 2013
The Baytown Outlaws
Hemmingway & Gellhorn
John Dies at the End
Knuckleball

Greetings everyone,

There were no real blockbusters released this week, but still a few titles of interest: "The Baytown Outlaws" (w/Eva Longoria and Billy Bob Thornton), "Hemingway & Gellhorn" (w/Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen), "John Dies at the End" (w/Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown) and "Knuckleball" (directed by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg). I've added the documentary "How to Make a Book with Steidl" to my ever growing pile of to-watch-someday films. We also added "Continuum: S1", "Gossip Girl: S6" (the final season), "Mad TV: S2", "Top Gear: S2" (US version) and "Veep: S1" to the TV wall. It seems like a great week to watch a few "smaller" titles -- or catch up on a few you may have missed. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Not only did "Games of Thrones: Season 1" remain the reigning king in this bout of Top BluRay Rentals, but "Game of Thrones: Season 2" could be dubbed the Governor General as it sits in the 2nd position. What follows is primarily television shows -- 8 out of the Top 10, in fact. No surprise seeing the latest installment of the James Bond franchise up there but I always expect to see "Terminator 2" at least in the Top 100 somewhere... but, never do. Maybe the BluRay format has evolved from just looking for the "wow factor" to simply being a way to watch movies. Regardless, here are the Top 100 rentals in our BluRay section -- almost all TV titles!
1 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 01
2 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 02
3 HOMELAND: SEASON 01
4 TRUE BLOOD: SEASON 04
5 SHERLOCK: SEASON 2
6 BREAKING BAD: SEASON 04
7 ARGO
8 DEXTER: SEASON 06
9 BOND: SKYFALL
10 BREAKING BAD: SEASON 03
(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)
