New arrivals for the week of May 7, 2013
Jack Reacker
Mama
The Oranges
Safe Haven

Greetings everyone,

Congratulations to this year's graduates and good luck with whatever you have chosen to do next out there in the "real world". Remember, if you are moving away and worry you won't be able to find an awesome video store in that new town, check out our handy-dandy "Great Video Stores in Other Towns" list. This week's biggest new releases include: "Jack Reacher" (w/Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike and... Werner Herzog!), "Mama" (w/Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), "The Oranges" (w/Leighton Meester, Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener and Adam Brody) and "Safe Haven" (w/Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel). Lots of TV shows, too: Flashpoint S5, Fringe S5, Rookie Blue S3 and Royal Pains S4. And, from the other side of the pond: Dalziel & Pascoe S7 and The Syndicate S1. We also finally got the Disney film version of one of my favorite books as a child, "Emil and the Detectives". Some great footage of Berlin in the early 60s! Lastly, Criterion released Jean-Luc Godard's "Band of Outsiders" (1964) on BluRay. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Note: Rentertainment's Summer hours will start on Monday the 13th. This year's version of those hours are:
Monday - Thursday (11:00-9:00), Friday - Saturday (11:00 - 10:00) and Sunday (noon - 9:00).

If you compare our Top 50 Musicals list to the one on IMDB you'll notice a huge difference: their Top 10 were all made since 1978 -- most since 2010. With a few exceptions, we only include the classics in our listings ("classic" defined as being older than me). It just never semed right to put "Oh, Calcutta" next to "Singin' in the Rain". In any case, here are the Top Renters in our Classic Musicals section:
1 SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
2 SOUND OF MUSIC, THE
3 WEST SIDE STORY
4 MARY POPPINS
5 HELLO, DOLLY!
6 MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
7 AMERICAN IN PARIS, AN
8 KING AND I
9 GIGI
10 OLIVER!
(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)
