New arrivals for the week of July 16, 2013
Bullet to the Head
Erased
Evil Dead
42

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new titles include: "Bullet to the Head" (w/Sylvester Stallone and Sung Kang), "Erased" (w/Aaron Eckhart, Olga Kurylenko and Liana Liberato), "Evil Dead" (w/Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci and Jessica Lucas), and "42" (the Jackie Robinson/Branch Rickey story; w/Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford and Nicole Beharie). First Run Features continues putting out interesting titles. This week they released "Bidder 70" which "tells the story of this peaceful warrior whose patriotism and willingness to sacrifice have ignited the climate justice movement". The 13th season of Cook's Illustrated's "America's Test Kitchen" also arrived -- that should keep me busy this weekend. And, Criterion released Peter Brooks' "Lord of the Flies" (1963). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Nadja Robot sent me a link Total Film's "50 Amazing Films You've Probably Never Seen". Right now, we have 19 of them at Rentertainment and should have another 20 by the end of the week. The last 11 are either out-of-print or only crappy copies exist. I'll keep looking, though. You can see the list here. I think I've seen about 5 of 50 titles -- how about you?

Alfred Hitchcock (13 August 1899 – 29 April 1980) was one of the greatest and most influential directors the world has ever seen. We have all his available films and you should watch them all -- in chronological order. If you don't have time for that (right now), you should at least watch the most popular ones. I'd say our Top 10 list is pretty representative of those -- start with the #1 title: "North by Northwest". Here are the Top 10 Renters from the Hitchcock section:
1 NORTH BY NORTHWEST
2 VERTIGO
3 REAR WINDOW
4 PSYCHO (1960)
5 STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
6 BIRDS, THE
7 TO CATCH A THIEF
8 NOTORIOUS
9 DIAL M FOR MURDER
10 ROPE
(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)
