New arrivals for the week of July 22, 2014
Cesar Chavez
Heaven is for Real
Sabotage
Transcendence

Greetings everyone,

We're now just under a month away from Move-In Day -- better maximize your time on a quiet campus now! This week's biggest new releases include: "Cesar Chavez" (w/Michael Pena, John Malkovich, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson), "Heaven is for Real" (w/Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly), "Sabotage" (w/Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Manganiello, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, etc) and "Transcendence" (w/Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Morgan Freeman). A few other titles that had some sort of theatrical releases include: "Blue Ruin", "Dom Hemingway", "Make Your Move" and "The Suspect". New from the television box: Prisoners of War S1, Taggart S3, Wahlburgers S1 (yes, those Wahlbergs: Mark, Donnie and Paul) and Without a Trace S4 (we're slowly completing the collection). And, we finally got Guns 'n Roses "Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live at the Hard Rock Casino, Las Vegas" on DVD and BluRay. 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.

As Kino, Criterion, Olive Films and others restore and release more and more classic films, we are seeing an upsurge in interest in all our Classic sections -- including the Classic Science Fiction & Horror section. Some of the stars and titles are recognizable to everyone (Bela Lugosi, Claude Rains and Boris Karloff starring in the films Dracula, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, for instance) but there are so many more titles to explore. The Top 10 is always a good place to start. And, next time you're poking around on the internet, look up the original poster art for these movies -- some of the most beautiful posters ever made (especially the Belgian ones!). Here are the Top Renters from our Classic Science Fiction & Horror section:
1 OLD DARK HOUSE, THE
2 TOMB OF LIGEIA
3 FORBIDDEN PLANET
4 FRANKENSTEIN (1931) + 4
5 FROM HELL IT CAME
6 7TH VICTIM/SHADOWS IN THE DARK
7 ATOMIC SUBMARINE/FIRST MAN...
8 BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRES
9 COMEDY OF TERRORS
10 FANTASTIC VOYAGE
(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)
