New arrivals for the week of April 30, 2013
Broken City
Guilt Trip
Not Fade Away
Silver Linings Playbook

Greetings everyone,

The end of the semester is already in sight and summer is right around the corner. With all the upcoming construction, I'm not sure Campustown will quiet down but I'm looking forward to Maize's 2nd location (in the old train station, which Luna recently vacated) and Pizza M's sit down restaurant in Downtown Urbana... woo-hoo times two!! On the new movie front, this week's biggest titles are: "Broken City" (w/Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones), "The Guilt Trip" (w/Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand), "Not Fade Away" (w/John Magaro, Jack Huston, Will Brill and Brahm Vaccarella) and "Silver Linings Playbook" (w/Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, etc). Baz Luhrmann's wonderful Australian film, "Strictly Ballroom", has finally come out on BluRay as has the 3rd season of ST:TNG. First Run Features released two interesting titles: "Wagner and Me" (w/Stephen Fry guiding us through Richard Wagner's life) and "Nurses: If Florence Could See Us Now" (a look into the complex, exciting and challenging world of being a nurse). Looks like a good week for movie watching! Check out the complete list of this week's new arrivals below.

May is National Bike Month and it kicks off in Urbana, Champaign and Campustown with Bike to Work Day (May 1st) and continues with lots of great events throughout the month. Check out the CU Bike to Work website for the complete calendar. For other bike resources check out our UC Bike Ride page.

Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" remains the top renter in our B Movie section and, this time around, is joined by the Roger Ebert penned, Russ Meyer directed, "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls". Meyer's "Pandora Peaks" also squeaked into the Top 10 in the 9th position. The 1974 sexplitation spoof, "Flesh Gordon" came in 2nd and Tod Browning's classic, "Freaks" (1932), a regular in the Top 10, came in 3rd. The rest of the list is the usual mish-mash of Joe Sarno, Andy Sidaris, Something Wild, Seduction Cinema and Troma titles. Here are the Top 100 renters in our B-Movie section:
1 WOOD, ED: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE
2 FLESH GORDON
3 FREAKS
4 JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S..
5 MIAMI CONNECTION
6 BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
7 GORE GORE GIRLS
8 GRINDHOUSE TRASH
9 MEYER, RUSS: PANDORA PEAKS
10 42ND STREET FOREVER: VOLUME 2
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
