New arrivals for the week of August 20, 2013
Amour
Killing Season
Scary Movie V
Shadow Dancer

Greetings everyone,

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... they're back! Love it or hate it, the 2013-14 school year is here and the streets of Campustown are bustling again. Be a little extra careful on campus -- there are a lot of folks who are just finding their way around. New arrivals this week include: "Amour" (w/Jean-Louis Trintignant, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert), "Killing Season" (w/Robert De Niro, John Travolta and Milo Ventimiglia), "Scary Movie V" (w/Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Katt Williams, Heather Locklear, etc) and "Shadow Dancer" (w/Clive Owen, Andrea Riseborough and Gillian Anderson). For television fans, we added "Boardwalk Empire: S3", "The Good Wife: S4", "Mindy Project: S1", "NCIS: S10", "NCIS LA: S4" and "Once Upon A Time: S2". Also, all four seasons of the highly rated BBC comedy, "The Thick of It", got released this week. Lastly, Criterion released two previously unavailable Satyajit Ray films: "The Big City" (1963) and "Charulata" (1964). Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

The third (and final) installment of the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization (CUDO) and Shatterglass Studios "Movies by Design Summer Film Fest" is next Thursday (August 29th) at Shatterglass HQ. For the final film, they'll be screening "Died Young Stayed Pretty" (2008, 95", dir: Eileen Yaghoobian) with the short film "Un Chien Andalou" (1929, 16", dir: Luis Buñuel). 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.

LCD Soundsystem's "Shut Up and Play the Hits" (put out by Adam Yauch's always amazing Oscilloscope Laboratories) has seated itself firmly in the top position of this edition of the Top Renting Music & Music Collections. The 2nd and 3rd tier of the podium are occupied by the Rolling Stones and Neil Young respectively. The rest of the Top 10 include Katy Perry, the Beatles and Prince (in "Purple Rain" as Prince before he became the artist formerly known as Prince). Elvis Costello's very entertaining "Spectacle: Season 1" mad the Top 10, too. "Woodstock" just barely knocked my favorite music film ever, "The Band's Last Waltz", out of the Top 10 -- let's see if we can't fix that for next time, okay? In any case, here are the Top 10 renters from our Music & Music Collections Sections:
1 SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS: LCD... (MUS)
2 ROLLING STONES: CHARLIE IS MY... (MUS)
3 YOUNG, NEIL: JOURNEYS (MUS)
4 PERRY, KATY: THE MOVIE (PART OF ME) (MUS)
5 PRINCE: PURPLE RAIN (MUS)
6 SPECTACLE (ELVIS COSTELLO): SEASON 01 (MC)
7 BEATLES: YELLOW SUBMARINE (MUS)
8 COLOR ME OBSESSED (MUS)
9 WILCO: I AM TRYING TO BREAK... (MUS)
10 WOODSTOCK (MC)
(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)
