New arrivals for the week of November 19, 2013
Planes
2Guns
We're the Millers
World's End

Greetings everyone,

Well, the dust from last week's shelving project has all but settled and we now have a bit more room for DVDs and BluRays. Phase two will start next week. This week's biggest new releases include: "Planes" (new from Disney; w/voices of Dane Cook, Val Kilmer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, etc), "2 Guns" (w/Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg), "We're the Millers" (w/Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston) and "The World's End" (w/Simon Pegg and Nick Frost). There were also a few other titles of note: "C.O.G." (based on a story by David Sedaris), "Crystal Fairy" (w/Michael Cera and Gaby Hoffmann), "Hannah Arendt" (directed by Margarethe von Trotta) and "Untold History of the United States" (Oliver Stone's 12-chapter documentary; BluRay only). On the TV front we got :Family Tree S1", "In the Flesh S1", "Middle S3" and "Treme S3". And, for the graphic designers/artists out there, "Drew: The Man Behind the Poster" -- a documentary about Drew Struzan (whose most popular works include the Indiana Jones, Back to the Future and Star Wars movie posters). You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

The classically themed martial arts rock band vs band of motorcycle ninjas film "Miami Connection" bumped Ed Wood's masterpiece "Plan 9 From Outer Space" out of the top position in this week's Top 100 B-Movies listing. In 2nd position, the 70s sexploitation film "Flesh Gordon" got replaced by Tod Browning's classic "Freaks" (1932). And, rounding out the podium is a collection of films from exploitation king, Herschell Gordon Lewis. It's never a surprise seeing Russ Meyer in the Top 10 (twice, this time, no less) but this may be the first time an "Ilsa" title has made it up there. The rest of the list is the usual mish-mash of Joe Sarno, Andy Sidaris, Something Wild, Seduction Cinema and Troma titles. Here are the Top 100 renters in our B-Movie section:
1 MIAMI CONNECTION
2 FREAKS
3 HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS: LOST FILMS
4 SEX AND BUTTERED POPCORN
5 ILSA: SHE WOLF OF THE SS
6 JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S..
7 MEYER, RUSS: FASTER, PUSSYCAT...
8 MEYER, RUSS: UP!
9 MONSTER KID HOME MOVIES
10 PIRATES
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
