New arrivals for the week of August 27, 2013
The Great Gatsby
Pain & Gain
Pawn Shop Chronicles
The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Greetings everyone,

I hope everyone made it through "New Student Week" (now a sadly shortened 4-day affair) successfully and is now ready to hunker down for the new semester. This week's bigger new releases include: "The Great Gatsby" (w/Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, etc), "Pain & Gain" (w/Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson), "Pawn Shop Chronicles" (w/Norman Reedus, Elijah Wood, Paul Walker and Brendan Fraser) and "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" (w/Riz Ahmed, Kate Hudson, Liev Schreiber and Kiefer Sutherland). For fans of the Television Wall, we got: "Call Me Fitz S3", "Elementary S1", "Grey's Anatomy S9", "Sons of Anarchy S5" and "The Walking Dead S3". Other titles of note: Makoto Shinkai's "Children Who Chase Lost Voices" (aka "Journey to Agartha") is new to the Anime section, "Kon-Tiki" is about explorer Thor Heyerdal's 4,300 mile crossing of the Pacific on a balsa wood raft in 1947 and "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" is a documentary about the Manhattan department store and the fashion scene surrounding it. Also, Criterion released Ernst Lubitsch's classic "To Be or Not To Be" (1942) -- we got the DVD, the BluRay should be here soon. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

This week's Top Renters list combines the Performing Arts and Opera sections -- and the Top 10 represents a 60/40 split between the two. "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away" sits in the top position for Performing Arts and "Wagner's Dream" (a documentary about the production of Wagner's Ring for the Met) is the top Opera title, placing third overall. Along with the "Mexican Horror Films" section, these are some of the more under-appreciated categories at Renter, but there are always some great titles tucked away in there. A note for Opera Lovers: for a complete list of the operas we stock (with a short description and box art), click here. So, here they are, the Top Renters from the Performing Arts & Opera sections:
1 CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: WORLDS AWAY (PA)
2 JOFFREY: MAVERICKS OF AMERICA DAN (PA)
3 WAGNER'S DREAM (OPE)
4 ZOOT SUIT (PA)
5 CATS (PA)
6 FLEMING, RENEE (PA)
7 IOLANTA/PERSEPHONE (OPE)
8 LOHENGRIN (OPE)
9 LOVE NEVER DIES (PA)
10 MAGIC FLUTE, THE (2003) (OPE)
(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)
