New arrivals for the week of May 21, 2013
Beautiful Creatures
Last Stand
Parker
Side Effects

Greetings everyone,

This week's big titles include: "Beautiful Creatures" (w/Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson, etc), "Last Stand" (w/Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Knoxville and Forest Whitaker), "Parker" (w/Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez), "Side Effects" (w/Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones) and "Stand Up Guys" (w/Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin). Also, the Norwegian fantasy/horror film "Thale" came in along with the PBS' American Masters documentary, "Mel Brooks: Make a Noise". Two more sets of the "Commissario Brunetti" series (episodes 15/16 and 17/18) arrived along with the first set of the French version of Georges Simenon's bestselling crime novels "Maigret" (w/Bruno Cremer). On the domestic TV front, the fifth season of the sexy vampire series "True Blood" came in as did the first season of medical drama "Saving Hope" and two more seasons of "Southland". Lastly, Criterion released Haskell Wexler's "Medium Cool" (1969). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

The Top 100 Comedies list may very well be the most volatile of these lists -- only two films from the previous top 10 (Bernie and Five-Year Engagement) remain in the top 10 this time around. It's almost like how I felt on my first day of college: "Drop your pencil and you're three weeks behind." Remember, this list does not include films kept in the Classics, Independent and/or International sections... and of course, Woody Allen gets his own Top Renting section. Here they are, the Top 100 Comedies rented at That's Rentertainment...
