New arrivals for the week of May 14, 2013
Cloud Atlas
Frankie Go Boom
Liz & Dick
Texas Chainsaw

Greetings everyone,

Enjoy the peace and quiet of Campustown while you can. I'm guessing the construction equipment will be rolling in soon! This week's new releases include: "Cloud Atlas" (w/Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, etc), "Frankie Go Boom" (w/Charlie Hunnam, Chris O'Dowd, Lizzy Caplan and Chris Noth), "Liz & Dick" (w/Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler) and "Texas Chainsaw" (the all new 2013 version). We added "Compulsion" (1959, w/Orson Welles and Dean Stockwell) to the Classics section. Also, a few more seasons of TV shows: "30 Rock: S7", "Dexter: S7", "Private Practice: S6", "Royal Pains: S4". Lastly, in the Horror/SciFi corner, "Massage Parlor Murders" (tagline: "Small town girls with big city morals!") and "Manborg" (tagline: "Revenge is Back"). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Remember: We are now in "Summer Hours" mode as follows:
Monday - Thursday (11:00-9:00), Friday - Saturday (11:00 - 10:00) and Sunday (noon - 9:00).

Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, Charlie Chaplin, Joseph Cotton, Tony Curtis, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Donna Reed, Jimmy Stewart and Orson Welles -- all household names and each can be seen in the Top 10 of this week's Top 100 Classic Films. The only other list with that much star-power would probably be the Top 10 Seventies Disaster Films -- and I bet you'll be able to see Holly Golightly's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" co-star, John "Hannibal" Smith, somewhere on that list, too! Don't forget, here at Rentertainment we define a "Classic Film" as anything older than I am. In other words, it has to have come out before 1962 (with a few exceptions). Here you are, the Top 100 renters from our Classic Movie section:
1 CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED
2 CASABLANCA
3 PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE
4 CHAPLIN AT KEYSTONE
5 GREAT DICTATOR
6 BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
7 IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
8 MY FAIR LADY
9 SOME LIKE IT HOT
10 TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
(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)
