New arrivals for the week of January 6, 2015
Boyhood
Get On Up
Left Behind
No Good Deed

Greetings everyone,

As promised, with most of the holidays behind us and a new year ahead of us, the flow of new releases has started up again. This week's biggest titles are: "Boyhood" (dir: Richard Linklater, w/Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette), "Get On Up" (w/Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, etc), "Left Behind" (w/Nicolas Cage, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Jordin Sparks and Chad Michael Murray) and "No Good Deed" (w/Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson). Also new on the New Release Wall: "Atlas Shrugged: Part III" (the final part), "The Guest" (directed by Adam Wingard of "V/H/S" and "You're Next" fame), "Horns" (w/Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple and Heather Graham) and "The Longest Week" (w/Jason Bateman, Billy Crudup and Olivia Wilde). New TV shows include: Archer S5, Black Sails S1, Crisis S1, Girls S3, Glee S5 and Looking S1. From Star Trek's Sulu to internet fame, "To Be Takei" looks at George Takei's life and shows you all the ways he's awesome. And, "A Will for the Woods" is a documentary about Clark Wang planning for his own green burial. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Winter Break Hours: We'll be opening a bit later and closing a bit earlier for the next few weeks: Monday-Thursday (11-9), Friday-Saturday (11-10) and Sunday (noon-9).

More and more people are finding out BluRay is the way to watch movies! We now have over 5,000 BluRay discs in the store and 1 rental in 5 is a BluRay disc. Our Top 10 listing is dominated by TV titles -- 7 out of 10, in fact (and three of those are "Game of Thrones"). The rest of the Top 100 is lots of TV and New Releases with a nice mix of older titles -- no doubt people rewatching their favorites on BuRay. I know every time I've pick up a new format, the first thing I watch is "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" followed by Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" -- I've seen each on VHS, Laser Disc, DVD and BluRay... but neither appear on our Top Renter list. In any case, here are the Top Renters in our BluRay section...
1 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 03
2 TRUE DETECTIVE: SEASON 01
3 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
4 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 01
5 HOMELAND: SEASON 03
6 ROOSEVELTS, THE: INTIMATE HISTORY
7 HOUSE OF CARDS: SEASON 02
8 GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 02
9 FROZEN (2013)
10 FARGO: SEASON 01
(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)
