New arrivals for the week of December 17, 2013
Elysium
The Family
The Lone Ranger
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

Greetings everyone,

Quite a few huge blockbusters were released just in time for the holidays: "Elysium" (w/Matt Damon and Jodie Foster), "The Family" (w/Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones and Dianna Agron), "Kick-Ass 2" (w/Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz), "The Lone Ranger" (w/Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp) and "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" (w/Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario and Gina Carano). On the TV front, the final season of "Burn Notice" came out as did "Family Guy: Volume 12" and we finished up our collection of "The Big C" by adding seasons 3 and 4. Also, Criterion released Yasujiro Ozu's "Tokyo Story" (1953) on BluRay. You can check out this week's complete list of new arrivals below.

Break Hours: It looks like we'll be keeping our regular hours at least through the end of the year. As always, we'll close at 8:00 on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, be closed on Christmas Day, and open at noon on the 1st. We'll probably start opening a bit later and closing a bit earlier after New Year's but I'll let you know for sure next week. In any case, hours will go back to normal when the dorms open on January 19th.

New Category Alert: The other day, my younger brother, Theo (the photographer of the family), noted we have an awful lot of documentaries about photography and photographers scattered throughout the Documentary section -- he suggested we make a Photography Documentary section. With my usual "Can-do" attitude, I said, "Go for it". So, we now have a Photography & Photographers section -- with 32 titles! If you're interested, it's by the "Cooking & Wine" section and above the "Arts & Artists" section.

"Silver Linings Playbook" edged its way into the Top 3 of the Top 100 Comedies as did "Pitch Perfect" and "Robot & Frank" -- two titles that weren't even in the Top 10 last time around. "Bernie", "Moonrise Kingdom" and "This is 40" return again and a few new titles fill in the rest of the Top 10 slots -- and lots of familiar faces below that. Remember, this list does not include films kept in the Classics, Independent and/or International sections... and of course, Woody Allen gets his own Top Renting section. Here they are, the Top 100 Comedies (plus a few) rented at That's Rentertainment...
1 SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
2 PITCH PERFECT
3 ROBOT & FRANK
4 IDENTITY THIEF
5 THIS IS 40
6 MOONRISE KINGDOM
7 WARM BODIES
8 INTERNSHIP, THE
9 ORANGES, THE
10 BERNIE
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
