New arrivals for the week of August 6, 2013
Mud
Oblivion
The Place Beyond the Pines
The Sapphires

Greetings everyone,

Campustown is starting to liven up again! In another few weeks we'll hardly recognize it as the quiet, easily navigated place we've gotten used to this summer. I, for one, am looking forward to it! New arrivals this week include: "Mud" (w/Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Michael Shannon and Sam Shepard), "Oblivion" (w/Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman), "The Place Beyond the Pines" (w/Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta) and "The Sapphires" (w/Chris O'Dowd). On the TV front we got: "Borgias S3" (the Final Season), "Community S4", "Duck Dynasty S3" and "The Regular Show: S1 & 2". We also got another set of "Midsomer Murders" -- it's the second half of Season 14 but called Set 22. Confused? Have a look at our easily understood Guide to Midsomer Murders. Btw, it's been confirmed: "Midsomer Murders" will be back for a 16th Series this fall -- look for a confusing, out of sequence, box-set shortly thereafter! Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

One of the greatest Japanese animators ever, Hayao Miyazaki, has taken the Gold, Silver and Bronze in this round of Top Renters from the Anime (Japanese Animation) section. The top title last time around, "The Secret World of Arrietty" (the 2010 debut film from Hiromasa Yonebayashi), managed to stay in the Top 10 but slipped to the 4th position. Miyazaki's son, Goro Miyazaki, also remains in the Top 10 with his debut, "Tales from Earthsea". His second film, "From Up on Poppy Hill" comes out in early September. If you are a regular in the Anime section, chances are you've seen all of these tiles already. Hopefully there are a few titles from the rest of the list you've missed. If you are new to the world of Anime, you might try a Miyazaki title -- they are a great place to start. Here are the Top 100 Renters from the Anime section:
1 MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
2 SPIRITED AWAY (DISNEY)
3 PRINCESS MONONOKE
4 SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY, THE
5 NAUSICAA: VALLEY OF THE WIND
6 HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE
7 TALES FROM EARTHSEA
8 WHISPER OF THE HEART
9 PONYO
10 SOUL EATER: COMPLETE SERIES
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
