New arrivals for the week of September 24, 2013
Iron Man 3
The Kings of Summer
Redemption
Room 237

Greetings everyone,

It's all happening at once: Pizza M, Flying Machine Coffee, Amano's Pizza and Black Rock Pizza are all going to be open by this weekend (and Sitara Indian Restaurant & Lounge opened a few weeks ago). I've got a lot of eating to do -- mostly pizza! New titles this week include: "Iron Man 3" (Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow), "Kings of Summer" (w/Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Nick Offerman, Moises Arias and Alison Brie), "Redemption" (w/Jason Statham) and "Room 237" (documentary on The Shining; directed by Rodney Ascher). Lots of TV stuff, too: American Dad V8, Being Human S5, Family Guy V11, Foyle's War V7, Hawaii 5-O S3, South Park S16 and Two and a Half Men S10 (formerly written by local celebrity Mark Roberts!). And, Criterion released "3 Films By Roberto Rossellini Starring Ingrid Bergman" (Stromboli, Europe ’51 and Journey to Italy). Getting all these new releases in reminds me, hopefully in the next week or so we'll be doing some rearranging in the store to make room for a few more sets shelves. We seem to be bursting at the seams again -- you'll know we're in trouble when we just start stacking stuff on the floor. Until then we'll keep buying new stuff and, as always, you can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

With Pat and Jessica graduated and off to grad school, I was pretty sure we'd be done with the daily viewings and re-viewings of Star Trek at Rentertainment. Then, along comes Erin and we're starting all over again. That just goes to show you, Rentertainment has a dedicated group of employees who love them some Star Trek! Of course, there are the movies, the original series, and all the various series that have come since -- plenty to get you through at least a few years of off-and-on-again watching. And, now it seems like they are remaking the movies. Will it ever end? I doubt it. In any case, if you want to watch some Star Trek, we've got them all. If you need a starting point, here are the Top Renting Star Trek videos...
1 STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS (DVD)

3 STAR TREK (2009) (DVD)

(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)
