New arrivals for the week of July 2, 2013
Call the Midwife: Season 2
Doctor Who: The Snowmen
In the Family
56 Up

Greetings everyone,

Since the studios don't release any big box office titles over holiday weekends, this is usually a good time to catch up on a few older releases. Such is the case this 4th of July week, but we did manage to get a few titles of interest: "Call the Midwife S2", "Doctor Who: The Snowmen" (the 2012 Christmas Special), "In the Family" ("An Indie Masterpiece" -- Roger Ebert) and the latest in the British "Up" documentary series, "56 Up". The HBO show "The Newsroom" might be the best television I have seen all year. But, there's also a Canadian show of the same name which is supposed to be just as good (among a few other things, the Canadians make some good television). We got the third (and final) season of the Canadian "Newsroom" in this week -- I'm going to start watching this over the weekend. We also got the Criterion DVD release of the Czech film "Marketa Lazarova" (1967) (we got the BluRay a few weeks back). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

A note about July 4th hours: Although we will be open on the 4th and would welcome you to stop by, nothing will be due. And, so that everyone can enjoy the fireworks, backyard barbecues, etc, we will be closing at 8pm. Happy 4th!

Only one film from the last the Top 10 Renters from the General section list (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) remains up there this time around. Even the old 1st and 2nd place holders (John Le Carre's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Hugo") fell off. But, by definition, there is still a Top 10 and there are still some good titles listed. As always, lots of New Releases with a few older titles mixed in -- a good list to reference if you ever find yourself at a loss for something to watch. Here are the Top 100 Renters from the General section:
1 PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, THE
2 ARGO
3 LIFE OF PI
4 DJANGO UNCHAINED
5 LINCOLN (2012)
6 MASTER, THE (2013)
7 HYDE PARK ON HUDSON
8 SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS
9 SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION
10 FLIGHT
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
