New arrivals for the week of November 26, 2013
Canyons
Getaway
Jobs
Red 2

Greetings everyone,

Once again, with campus empty, this is a great time to come down and try out a few of the new restaurants, visit a few of the new shops and try to maneuver your way around all the construction. At the very least, grab a giant stack of films for the long weekend ahead. The biggest new releases of the week include: "The Canyons" (w/Lindsay Lohan and James Deen), "Getaway" (w/Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez), "Jobs" (wAshton Kutcher) and "Red 2" (w/Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, etc). The much anticipated release "Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me" is a feature-length documentary about the legendary Memphis band, Big Star, who influenced REM, The Replacements, Belle & Sebastian, Elliot Smith, Flaming Lips, and just about everyone else who came after them. "Wolf Children" (directed by Mamoru Hosoda of "Summer Wars" and "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" fame) is probably the most anticipated Anime title to be released in a while -- and is well worth watching. Also, the final season of "Breaking Bad" came out. Lastly, Criterion released the most epic of epic box sets, "Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman" (25 movies on 9 BluRay discs or 18 DVDs). You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

A note on hours: We will be closed on Thanksgiving (November 28th) and will close early (at 8:00) on Thanksgiving Eve (November 27th). Otherwise, we'll be here as usual.

Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Philadelphia Story and Rebel Without a Cause (the top few titles in this week's Top 100 Classic Films list) seem to rotate between each other in the Top 10. Throw in a prison film (Cool Hand Luke), a couple of courtroom dramas (To Kill a Mockingbird and Judgment at Nuremberg), some Charlie Chaplin and Marlene Dietrich titles, and you have a great Top 10 list -- and, a pretty great weekend of movie watching. Next weekend, get #11-20 and repeat until you've seen them all. There isn't a bad title on the entire list! Don't forget, here at Rentertainment we define a "Classic Film" as anything older than I am. In other words, it has to have come out before 1962 (with a few exceptions). Here you are, the Top 100 renters from our Classic Movie section:
1 CASABLANCA
2 CITIZEN KANE: REMASTERED
3 PHILADELPHIA STORY, THE
4 REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
5 TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
6 CHAPLIN AT KEYSTONE
7 GREAT DICTATOR
8 COOL HAND LUKE
9 DIETRICH: GLAMOUR COLLECTION
10 JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
