New arrivals for the week of September 9, 2014
Brick Mansions
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Palo Alto
Words and Pictures

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new arrivals are: "Brick Mansions" (w/Paul Walker, RZA and David Belle), "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (w/Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson), "Palo Alto" (w/Emma Roberts, James Franco, Val Kilmer and Nat Wolff) and "Words and Pictures" (w/Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche). From Katie Couric, Laurie David (producer of "An Inconvenient Truth") and director Stephanie Soechtig, we got "Fed Up" -- a documentary about food, weight loss and one of the largest health epidemics in history (tagline: "It's time to get real about food"). Also of note: "God's Pocket" (w/Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Richard Jenkins and Christina Hendricks), "The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden" (documentary of a 1930s murder mystery on Floreana Island) and "The Hornet's Nest" (a look at the war in Afghanistan through the eyes of father and son, Carlos and Mike Boettcher). And, on the TV front: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1, Blue Bloods S4, Chicago P.D. S1, Crossbones S1 (w/John Malkovich as Blackbeard!), Goldbergs S1, Homeland S3, Supernatural S9 and Vampire Diaries S5. We also finished up our "Without a Trace" collection (2002-2009, w/Anthony LaPaglia and Poppy Montgomery) -- now all seven seasons are in stock! You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Last year's "Dallas Buyers Club" (w/Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner) is the top renting film in our General section (where everything we can't find another section for goes). Academy Award winner (three times, no less), "12 Years a Slave" came in 2nd followed by "The Wolf of Wall Street" (nominated for five Academy Awards but winner of none) in 3rd. As expected, most of the Top 10 are relatively new releases -- you have to get into the mid-teens to hit the last century: #16 ("Fight Club") was released in 1999. This is a great list to hit up when you're just not sure what to watch -- rely on the watching habits of others! Here are the Top Renters from the General section:
1 DALLAS BUYERS CLUB
2 12 YEARS A SLAVE
3 WOLF OF WALL STREET, THE
4 NEBRASKA
5 NOW YOU SEE ME
6 GREAT GATSBY, THE (2013)
7 INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS
8 MUD
9 SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (2013)
10 CLOSED CIRCUIT
(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)
