New arrivals for the week of September 30, 2014
Are You Here
Chef
Cold in July
Transformers: Age of Extinction

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new releases include: "Are You Here" (w/Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler), "Chef" (w/Jon Favreau, Emjay Anthony, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara and John Leguizamo), "Cold in July" (w/Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson) and "Transformers: Age of Extinction" (w/Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, etc). PBS released Season 3 of their excellent food show, "Mind of a Chef" -- this time focusing on Edward Lee, owner of 610 Magnolia restaurant in Louisville, KY ("One part Southern soul, one part Asian spice, and one part New York attitude."). We finally got Jean-Jacques Beineix's (Diva, Betty Blue, etc) thriller "Mortal Transfer" (2001). And, few TV shows turned up as well: Field of Blood S1, Marple S6, Mom S1 and Reign S1. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

With Halloween less than a month away, now seems like the perfect time to post the Top Renting Horror Films -- plan your Halloween viewing carefully! Brad Pitt in the Zombie Apocalypse film "World War Z" (2013) has managed to keep the number one position followed by Stanley Kubrick's original "The Shining" (1980) and sisters Eleanor and Clara (Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton) do the vampire thing in "Byzantium" (2012) for third place. The rest of the top renters are nice mix of new titles ("Cabin in the Woods", "Devil's Pass", "Oculus", etc) and the classics ("Halloween", "Poltergeist", "Silence of the Lambs", etc). It's always good to see the new and old mixing it up in our Top 100 lists -- it shows me folks are still interested in digging through the back-catalog of a genre. Here are the Top Renters for the past 12 months from our Horror Film Section:
1 WORLD WAR Z
2 SHINING, THE
3 BYZANTIUM
4 HALLOWEEN (1978)
5 YOU'RE NEXT
6 CABIN IN THE WOODS, THE
7 CONTRACTED
8 OCULUS
9 CONJURING, THE
10 DEVIL'S PASS
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
