New arrivals for the week of June 18, 2013
Jack the Giant Slayer
The Last Exorcism Part II
Quartet
Stoker

Greetings everyone,

First and foremost, congratulations to Jennifer & Ian Iversen-Curry! Their wedding last weekend was beautiful and a veritable Rentertainment reunion (there were at least 16 current and former Rentertarians present). If you scour the internets, I am sure you can find some pictures -- there's even one of the Renter crew (and, as soon as I get my hands on it, I'll post it somewhere). You both are very dear to our hearts.

New arrivals this week include: "Jack the Giant Slayer" (w/Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Eleanor Tomlinson and Stanley Tucci), "The Last Exorcism Part II" (w/Ashley Bell, Judd Lormand, Spencer Treat Clark and Julia Garner), "Quartet" (directed by Dustin Hoffman; w/Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly and Michael Gambon) and "Stoker" (w/Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Dermot Mulroney). In the TV section we got "Body of Proof: S3", "Drop Dead Diva: S4", "Moonshiners: S1" and "Workaholics: S3" (and should have "Wilfred: S2" by the weekend). And, for all you BBC fans, the mystery/drama "Springhill: Series 1" came in. Lastly, we finally got Sergio Corbucci's "Django" (1966) and Criterion released William Cameron Menzies' "Of Things to Come" (1936) on both DVD and BluRay. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Along with the American Politics section, the Environmental & Social Issues section is a sub-section of our vast Documentary collection. There are well over 100 titles (and more being added regularly) for folks interested in subjects related to alternative energy, child slavery, sustainable food, pollution, animal rights, etc. Fwiw, other great local resource for Environmental issues are The Green Observer, Illinois Green Business Association, and Students for Environmental Concerns. Here are the Top Titles in the ESI section:
1 FORKS OVER KNIVES
2 LIFE + DEBT
3 GENETIC CHILE
4 E2: INTERVENTION ARCHITECTURE
5 EARTH AT RISK
6 FARMAGEDDON
7 FOOD, INC.
8 REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN
9 BLUE VINYL
10 COVE, THE
(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)
