New arrivals for the week of June 11, 2013
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
Knife Fight
Oz: The Great and Powerful
Snitch

Greetings everyone,

I am starting to get excited about Downtown Urbana! Here's what I've heard about: a new coffee shop, expanded Pizza M, a meat shop (w/deli?), widened sidewalks by Black Dog (outdoor seating ftw!), the Boneyard Creak park project, a rumored Korean restaurant, a new bar/club at V Picasso, and there's even more that I cannot think of right now. I think it's all going to be really great really soon! New releases this week include: "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" (w/Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton), "Knife Fight" (w/Rob Lowe and Carrie-Anne Moss), "Oz: The Great and Powerful" (w/James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, etc) and "Snitch" (w/Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon). On the TV front we got "Burn Notice: S6", "House of Cards: S1", "The Newroom: S1", "Perception: S1" and "Top Gear: S19". Anime fans: I think we have finally completed our "One Piece" collection -- let me know if we're missing anything. Lastly, Criterion released Ingmar Bergman's "Wild Strawberries" (1957) on BluRay. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

The amazing documentary about the 1970s singer/songwriter Rodriguez, "Searching for Sugar Man", emerged as our top renting documentary followed by the epic, 5-disc, 15 hour long, "The Story of Film: An Odyssey". Rounding out the podium is "The Queen of Versailles", the rags-to-riches-back-to-almost-rags story of David and Jacqueline Siegel, (former) Florida billionaires. It's nice to see "Linotype: The Film" in the top 10. You may recall, Linotype made it's local premier at Parkland College. Watch for the next entry in their design film series this fall -- "Sign Painters". Here are the Top 100 renters from our Documentary section:
