New arrivals for the week of April 9, 2013
Hyde Park on Hudson
Johnny Sokko & His Flying Robot
The Kitchen
The Sorcerer and The White Snake

Greetings everyone,

"Every great film should seem new every time you see it." -- Roger Ebert (June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013)

Another week with no huge blockbusters, but still plenty to choose from. This week's most interesting titles include: "Hyde Park on Hudson" (w/Bill Murray, Laura Linney and Olivia Williams), "Johnny Sokko & His Flying Robot: The Complete Series" (Robot, attack! Robot, destroy!), "The Kitchen" (w/Laura Prepon, Bryan Greenberg and Dreama Walker) and "The Sorcerer and The White Snake" (w/Jet Li). "The Boss: Season 2" was added to the TV section and the British section gained "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Series 1" and "Dirk Gently" (based on the books by Douglas Adams). We also got the complete "Three Sheets" series (from Zane Lamprey of "Drinking Made Easy" fame). As always, check out the complete list below.

"Beasts of the Southern Wild", a 2012 Cannes and Sundance favorite, is the top renting film in our American Independent Section. In fact, most of the titles in the section premiered at Sundance or were festival favorites. Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" has been in the Top 10 ever since we got it (horrible IMDb ratings and yet it's a Renter Employee favorite) as has David Lynch's "Eraserhead" (much better IMDb rating but when I saw in the late 70s all I remember just starring at the screen for five minutes after it ended wondering what I just saw). The AIF section is full of interesting, smaller titles -- it's a great go-to place to go for something you probably haven't seen yet, but probably ought to. Here are the Top 100 renters from the AIF section:
1 BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
2 SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED
3 COMPLIANCE
4 TINY FURNITURE
5 SLEEPWALK WITH ME
6 ROOM, THE
7 2 DAYS IN NEW YORK
8 NEWLYWEDS
9 BEFORE SUNRISE
10 ERASERHEAD
(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)
