New arrivals for the week of June 4, 2013
A Good Day to Die Hard
Escape from Planet Earth
Identity Theft
Warm Bodies

Greetings everyone,

Quite a few big titles were released this week: "A Good Day to Die Hard" (Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney), "Escape from Planet Earth" (w/voices of: Brendan Fraser, Rob Corddry, Jessica Alba, William Shatner, etc), "Identity Thief" (w/Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy) and "Warm Bodies" (w/Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer). New titles to the TV section include: "Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season" and "Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Third Season". And a few for the British TV section: "George Gently: Series 5" and "Vexed: Series 2". Also, First Run Features released four documentaries that look interesting: "Erroll Garner: No One Can Hear You Read", "The Last Flight of Petr Ginz", "Orchestra of Exiles" and "Wine, Women & Friends". Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

There are just a few days left in our Birthday Week (we turned 28 on June 1st) which means there are just a few days left to grab these special Birthday Week deals (they'll continue through close on Friday, June 7th):
1) 20% any Block -- that makes a screamin’ deal an even better screamin’ deal. If you already have a Block -- get another... or get one for a friend... they don’t expire... ever.
2) 20% all Used Movies -- we’ve got hundreds of them piled up. Regularly $5/ea or 5/$20 -- now just $4/ea of 5/$16... it’s like stealing!
3) 20% off all Bike Stuff -- that’s right, everything in the Itty Bitty Bike Shop is discounted... grab a spare tube or that tail light you’ve been eye-balling.

Hmmm... for some reason I thought the Top Renting Doctor Who list would be more interesting than this -- it turns out it's just a list of Doctor Who titles. But, it's obvious the new series is the most popular so if you haven't seen any that might be a good place to start. Or, just start with episode 001, "An Unearthly Child" (#12 on the list), from the original series. We have almost every Doctor Who titles available and grab the ones we're missing as they become available so you should pretty much be able to work your way through all 239 episodes, specials and movies (list). Here are the Top 100 Doctor Who titles rented at That's Rentertainment...
1 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 3
2 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 5
3 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 4
4 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 2
5 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 1 (2005)
6 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 7, PART 1
7 DOCTOR WHO #078: GENESIS...
8 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 6, PART 1
9 DOCTOR WHO #009: PLANET OF GIANTS
10 DOCTOR WHO #044: THE DOMINATORS
(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)
