New arrivals for the week of October 29, 2013
Bounty Killer
Monsters University
Plush
R.I.P.D.

Greetings everyone,

Happy Halloween! This week's biggest new releases include: "Bounty Killer" (w/Matthew Marsden and Kristanna Loken), "Monsters University" (w/the voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Helen Mirren, etc), "Plush" (w/Emily Browning and Cam Gigandet) and "R.I.P.D." (w/Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds). Also of interest: the Canadian series "Bomb Girls: S1", "Cook's Country: S6" (from the folks at America's Test Kitchen) and "Dalziel & Pascoe: S8". Also, just in time for Halloween, Rachel told me about a Disney series called "Halloweentown" -- I'd never heard of it but they sound like good family fare and we now have all four available titles. Criterion released Georges Franju's horror classic, "Eyes without a Face" (1960) and Michelangelo Antonioni's "La Notte" (1961) on BluRay. Also, more Hitchcock titles are starting to turn up on BluRay. This week we got "The Man Who Knew Too Much", "Rope", "Saboteur", "Shadow of a Doubt" and "The Trouble with Harry". We'll get more as they become available. You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Once again, "Beasts of the Southern Wild", a 2012 Cannes and Sundance favorite, is the top renting film in our American Independent Section and "Safety Not Guaranteed" follows closely behind. Although both "Before Sunrise" (1999) and "Before Sunset" (2004) have always been popular, with the release of the third title in the series, "Before Midnight" (2013), they have both climbed into the Top 10. A few other highlights from the Top 10 include Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" (which has been up there ever since we got it), Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture" and 2012 Sundance/SXSW favorite, "Sleepwalk with Me". The AIF section is full of interesting, smaller titles -- it's a great go-to place to go for something you might not have seen yet, but probably ought to. Here are the Top 100 renters from the AIF section:
1 BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
2 SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED
3 SLEEPWALK WITH ME
4 BEFORE SUNRISE
5 BEFORE SUNSET
6 COMPLIANCE
7 2 DAYS IN NEW YORK
8 ROOM, THE
9 TINY FURNITURE
10 DARK HORSE
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
