New arrivals for the week of July 9, 2013
Admission
Dead Man Down
Host
Spring Breakers

Greetings everyone,

With the 4th of July holiday behind us, studios are starting to release some of the bigger titles again. This week's include: "Admission" (w/Tina Fey and Paul Rudd), "Dead Man Down" (w/Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard), "Host" (w/Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons and Diane Kruger) and "Spring Breakers" (w/Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, James Franco, Ashley Benson and Heather Morris). Also worth mentioning, "Tyler Perry's Temptation" (w/Jurnee Smollett, Lance Gross, Robbie Jones, Vanessa Williams and Kim Kardashian) and "Gatekeepers" (insights from six former heads of Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service). A couple of titles we should have gotten last week also came in: "Least Among Saints" and "21 & Over" (from the writers of "The Hangover"). On the TV front we got "Portlandia: S3", "Unforgettable: S1", "Warehouse 13: S4" and the first three seasons of "Parenthood" (Season 4 comes out in August). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

The Champaign-Urbana Design Organization (CUDO) and Shatterglass Studios is doing a cool thing this summer. They call it the "Movies by Design Summer Film Fest". If you love design and you love movies, there is no better place to be this summer. The first screening is "Branded" (2012, 106") with the short film "Logorama" (2009, 16") and will be on Thursday, July 11 at Shatterglass HQ. Future films include "Objectified" and "Died Young Stayed Pretty". Seating is limited to the first 12 (yes, that's twelve) RSVPs for each movie (with priority access for CUDO Members) which can be made through the CUDO web site.

We started our GLBT section with a collection of films from a handful of self-defined GLBT video labels and some titles included in Top 100 lists from various GLBT web sites. We have since added titles we feel fit the genre (or customers felt might) but have occaisionally left some out -- not a real science practiced here. As with many sections in the store, sometimes it's just hard to decide what goes where. In any case, here are the Top Renters from the GLBT section:
1 KEEP THE LIGHTS ON
2 WEEKEND (2011)
3 GAYBY
4 BIRDCAGE, THE
5 DELTA, THE
6 NORTH SEA TEXAS
7 BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER
8 JACK & DIANE
9 PARTING GLANCES
10 PRIVATE ROMEO
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
