New arrivals for the week of September 3, 2013
From Up On Poppy Hill
The Iceman
Now You See Me
Stories We Tell

Greetings everyone,

Another campus eatery snuck in under my radar: Niro's Gyros opened on the first floor of Clybourne (where The Porch used to be). I'm still waiting to hear when Ambar-India, Antonio's Pizza and Q Smokehouse will open. However, it looks like they've finally starting building out the new Kofusion across from Krannert. That will be a nice addition to that end of campus. New titles this week include: "From Up On Poppy Hill" (from Studio Ghibli, directed by Goro Miyazaki), "The Iceman" (w/Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, James Franco and Ray Liotta), "Now You See Me" (w/Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, etc) and "Stories We Tell" (directed by Sarah Polley). Other titles of note include: Pablo Berger's twist on Snow White, "Blancanieves" (2012), "The English Teacher" (w/ Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano and Greg Kinnear) and "Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie" (2012). Lots of new TV stuff, too: Criminal Minds S8, DaVinci's Demons S1, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia S8, The League S4, The Office S9, Parks and Recreation S5, Spartacus S3 and Vampire Diaries S4. Check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

I'll admit our Science Fiction / Superhero sections are a bit of a mish-mash. We could probably sub-divide out a Fantasy Section for some titles that don't really fit in, but that would probably cause even more confusion. So, for now, you'll find all of the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Twilight titles sharing the section with the Aliens trilogy, the Star Wars... um... six-ology and Independence Day. Note: The glaring lack of any Star Trek and Doctor Who titles is because each has their own section. Check the Top 100 Master Index for their respective Top 100 lists. That said, here are the Top 100 renters from the Science Fiction/Superhero sections:
1 LOOPER
2 CLOUD ATLAS
3 AVENGERS, THE (2012)
4 OBLIVION (2013)
5 BATMAN: DARK KNIGHT RISES
6 HOBBIT, THE: AN UNEXPECTED...
7 HUNGER GAMES, THE
8 OZ THE GREAT & POWERFUL
9 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, THE
10 JACK THE GIANT SLAYER
(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)
