New arrivals for the week of June 3, 2014
Attack on Titan
Lone Survivor
Robocop
Son of God

Greetings everyone,

New stuff this week includes: "Attack on Titan" (Anime, directed by Tetsuro Araki), "Lone Survivor" (w/Mark Wahlberg), "Robocop" (w/Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson and Abbie Cornish) and "Son of God" (w/Diogo Morgado, Roma Downey and Amber Rose Revah). From the Television Box we added "Falling Skies S3", "Graceland S1", "New Tricks S10", "Pretty Little Liars S4", "True Blood S6" and "Workaholics S4". We also added two titles to our Hitchcock BluRay section: "Rear Window" (1954) and "Vertigo" (1958) -- nice to see almost all his titles out on BR. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Important hours note: There's a chance we won't open until 2:00pm this Saturday (the 7th). If you're planning on coming in before that, it might be worth giving a call first. Sorry.

Regular Summer Hours: Monday-Thursday 11-9, Friday-Saturday 11-10 and Sunday noon-8.

We are half-way though or Birthday week (if you're just tuning in, we're 29 years old this week) which means you have just a few days left to take advantage of our Fabulous Birthday Week Specials:
1) 20% any Renter Block -- that makes a screamin' deal an even better screamin'er deal. For instance, if you buy a Super Block, usually 100 rentals for $100, you'll only pay $80 -- that's a slim 80 cents per rental! What? You've already got a Block? Get another... or get one for a friend... they don't expire... ever.
2) 20% all used movies -- we've got hundreds of them piled up. Regularly $5/ea or 3/$12 -- now just $4/ea of 3/$9.60 -- you know what, let's make it 10/$25, too... it's like stealing!
3) 20% off all bike stuff -- that's right, everything in the Itty Bitty Bike Shop is discounted... grab a spare tube, fancy lock or that tail light you've been eye-balling lately.
These deals will go through close on Saturday.

We now have over 4,500 BluRay discs and 1 rental in 5 is a BluRay disc. The Top 10 are dominated by TV titles -- 9 out of 10, in fact (and three of those are "Game of Thrones"). The rest of the Top 100 is lots of TV and New Releases with a smattering of old titles mixed in -- a lot like the Top 100 DVDs list is. I'd say the 3d thing ended up being a bit of a dud but it's still worthwhile getting a BluRay player the next time you are out and about. I'm still a big fan of all things made by Oppo but you can get players for under $100 -- skip the 3d upgrade, though. In any case, here are the Top 100 rentals in our BluRay section...
1 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 03
2 HOUSE OF CARDS: SEASON 01, VOL 01
3 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 01
4 AMERICAN HUSTLE (2013)
5 HOMELAND: SEASON 02
6 BOARDWALK EMPIRE: SEASON 03
7 WALKING DEAD, THE: SEASON 03
8 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 02
9 NEWSROOM, THE: SEASON 01
10 DEXTER: SEASON 08 (FINAL)
(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)
