New arrivals for the week of August 12, 2014
Haunted House 2
Locke
Muppets Most Wanted
The Railway Man

Greetings everyone,

It looks like campus might get cleaned up in time for the arrival of students next week. But, I am a long way from getting anything done around the store. Oh well, there's always winter break! This week's biggest new titles include: "Haunted House 2" (w/Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Jaime Pressly and Cedric the Entertainer), "Locke" (w/Tom Hardy and Ruth Wilson), "Muppets Most Wanted" (w/Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Christoph Waltz and Ray Liotta) and "The Railway Man" (w/Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine and Stellan Skarsgard). Also worth a mention: "Disneynature's Bears" (narrated by John C Reilly), "Filth" (w/James McAvoy and Jamie Bell) and "Rage" (w/Nicholas Cage). From TV-World we added: Bitten S1, Blacklist S1, Low Winter Sun S1, Vicious S1 and Without a Trace S5. And, in our never-ending quest to fill in as many gaps in our collection as possible, we picked up "Fellini's Casanova" (1976, w/ Donald Sutherland, Tina Aumont and Cicely Browne) and "We're No Angels" (1955, w/ Humphrey Bogart and Peter Ustinov). 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.

"Doctor Who: Series 8" will premiere on August 23rd with the airing of "Deep Breath" with Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor -- you have just over a week to get caught up! Our Doctor Who section continues being one of the most popular sections at Rentertainment. In fact, very few sections can claim almost every title rents at least once every year (the only other ones being the Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock and British Mystery sections, I think). We have almost every Doctor Who title available and grab the ones we're missing as they become available. So, you should pretty much be able to work your way through all 239 episodes, specials and movies (list). Here are the Top Doctor Who titles rented at That's Rentertainment...
1 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 2
2 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 5
3 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 4
4 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 7, PART 2
5 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 1 (2005)
6 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 7, PART 1
7 DOCTOR WHO: THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR
8 DOCTOR WHO #001: AN UNEARTHLY CHILD
9 DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 3
10 DOCTOR WHO: THE TIME OF THE DOCTOR
(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)
