New arrivals for the week of November 18, 2014
22 Jump Street
If I Stay
Into the Storm
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Greetings everyone,

If you are into this sort of thing, the City of Urbana is having a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Boneyard Creek Improvements Project on Friday (November 21) at 11:00 at the northwest corner of Griggs and Race (just down the street from my other place, Parasol Records). I think they really did a nice job on the project -- it's well worth checking out (and then you'll be just a block from an awesome fish sandwich at Bunny's)!

New stuff this week includes: "22 Jump Street" (w/Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube and Nick Offerman), "If I Stay" (w/Chloe Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos and Jamie Blackley), "Into the Storm" (w/Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies and Jeremy Sumpter) and "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" (w/Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mickey Rourke and Josh Brolin). Also worth a mention, Rob Reiner's latest "And So It Goes" (w/Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas), the documentary "Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton as Himself" (2012) and Hayao Miyazaki's latest animated title, "The Wind Rises". In the "how come it's taken so long to release this on DVD" category, "The Dirt Bike Kid" (1985, starring Ralphie, aka Peter Billingsley) is finally on our shelves! And, on the TV front we added two seasons of King of the Hill (7 & 8), Louie S3, Salem S1, Touch S2, True Blood S7 and Wilfred (the complete original Australian series). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Spike Jonze's SciFi/A.I. film, "Her", was the top renting title in our Science Fiction/Superheroes section this time around. Coming in second was Robert Downey Jr in "Iron Man 3" followed by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney's stranded in space thriller "Gravity". The rest of the list is pretty much as expected: you'll see all of the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Matrix, Star Wars, Twilight, etc titles along with some older titles (2001: A Space Odyssey, Jurassic Park, Robocop, etc) and a slew of the newer titles (Godzilla, Pacific Rim, Snowpiercer, etc) -- no real surprises but a good reminder of a few films you might have missed. Remember, our SF section includes some stuff one might put in a Fantasy Section so, for now, you'll find all of the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Twilight titles sharing shelves with the Alien trilogy, the Star Wars trilogy and Independence Day. Note: The glaring lack of any Star Trek and Doctor Who titles is because each has their own section. Check the Top 100 Master Index for their respective Top 100 lists. That said, here are the Top 100 renters from the Science Fiction/Superhero sections:
1 HER
2 CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER
3 GRAVITY
4 DIVERGENT
5 THOR 2: THE DARK WORLD
6 IRON MAN 3
7 HUNGER GAMES, THE: CATCHING FIRE
8 HOBBIT, THE: DESOLATION OF SMAUG
9 STAR WARS IV: A NEW HOPE
10 X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
(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)
