New arrivals for the week of June 10, 2014
Jack Ryan
Non-Stop
Omar
Tim's Vermeer

Greetings everyone,

Half of our new releases got delayed this week but should be here by Thursday -- just in time for whatever weekend film marathon you have planned! This week's biggest titles includes: "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" (w/Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley and Kenneth Branagh), "Non-Stop" (w/Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore), "Omar" (Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film) and "Tim's Vermeer" (w/Tim Jenison, a Penn & Teller film). All 13 episodes of Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey" were released on DVD and BluRay with lots of extras -- that would make an awesome film marathon on its own! Also, a few other new TV series arrived: Ray Donovan S1, Resurrection S1 and True Detective S1. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

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

Two films that have resided in the Top 10 of our American Independent Film section (AIF) seemingly forever, Benh Zeitlin's "Beasts of the Southern Wild" (2012) and Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" (2003), have moved down the list but now all three of Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" (1999), "Before Sunset" (2004) and "Before Midnight" (2013) trilogy are up there. They share the podium with Joss Whedon's "Much ado about Nothing" (2012). A few other highlights from the Top 10 include "In a World..." (starring, written and directed by Lake Bell), 2014 Ebertfest film "Short Term 12" and Richard Kelly's "Donnie Darko" (2001). Our AIF section started out as a place to put films that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival but has grown to include lots of films simply made outside of the "system". It's full of interesting, smaller titles and is a great go-to place to go for something you probably haven't seen yet, but most certainly ought to. Here are the Top 100 renters from the AIF section:
1 BEFORE MIDNIGHT
2 MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING (2013)
3 BEFORE SUNRISE
4 BEFORE SUNSET
5 IN A WORLD...
6 TAKE ME HOME
7 IN THE FAMILY (2011)
8 SHORT TERM 12
9 SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED
10 DONNIE DARKO
(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)
