New arrivals for the week of July 15, 2014
The Face of Love
Rio 2
Under the Skin
Wrinkles

Greetings everyone,

Urbana's Curbanas are open for business! Check 'em out in front of Crane Alley and Pizza M/Flying Machine Coffee. Also in Urbana, it looks like construction is moving along at Dancing Dog Eatery & Juicery and Error Records opened two weeks ago. Construction is still in full-swing on campus -- I'm anxious to see what they can get done by the time school starts. This week's biggest new titles include: "The Face of Love" (w/Annette Bening, Ed Harris and Robin Williams), "Rio 2" (actually, we'll get out copies on Thursday), "Under the Skin" (w/Scarlett Johansson) and "Wrinkles" (Spain, animated, dir: Ignacio Ferreras). The big news on the TV front is the release of Season 2 of "Orphan Black" -- if haven't watched this yet, it's well worth watching (8.5 on IMDb and 97% at Rotten Tomatoes!). We also got tons of other new TV stuff: America's Test Kitchen S14, Black Dynamite S1, Case Histories S2, Cedar Cove S1, DCI Banks S1, Hell on Wheels S3, Major Crimes S2, Regular Show S3, Rizzoli & Isles S4, Scott and Bailey S1, Warehouse 13 S5 and Without a Trace S3. As a way-back-catalog-title addition, we nabbed "Suspect" (1987, w/Cher, Dennis Quaid and Liam Neeson) for our general section. We also got five more Hitchcock titles on BluRay: Family Plot, Frenzy, Marnie, Topaz and Torn Curtain -- I think we might finally have them all now. 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.

In this week's Top Renter listing, "Mary Poppins" edged out "Singin' in the Rain" to become the #1 Renter from our Classic Musicals section and "South Pacific" landed in 3rd. The Top 10 Classic Musicals tend to stay pretty much the same from month to month (which is not surprising since they aren't really making any new classic musicals) but they are generally in a slightly different order. If not seeing "Les Miserables" on the list worries you, don't let it -- with a few exceptions, we only include the classics in our Classic Musicals listings ("classic" being defined as older than me). As great as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is, it just doesn't seem right to put it next to "Mary Poppins" (but, believe it or not, they were made only 11 years apart). Here are the Top Renters in our Classic Musicals section:
1 MARY POPPINS
2 SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
3 SOUTH PACIFIC (1958)
4 FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
5 WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
6 WIZARD OF OZ (70TH ANNIVERSARY ED)
7 GIGI
8 SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS
9 SOUND OF MUSIC, THE
10 UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN, THE
(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)
