New arrivals for the week of January 27, 2015
Before I Go to Sleep
The Book of Life
The Fury
The Judge

Greetings everyone,

This week's new-release blockbusters include: "Before I Go to Sleep" (w/Nicole Kidman, Mark Strong and Colin Firth), "The Book of Life" (w/voices of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, etc), "Fury" (w/Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman) and "The Judge" (w/Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall and Vera Farmiga). There were also a few other titles of note: "Miss Meadows" (the old "school teacher by day, vigilante by night" story; w/Katie Holmes and James Badge Dale), "My Old Lady" (the new one from the Cohen Media Group; w/Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas), "The Remaining" (a post-rapture thriller) and, of course, "Downton Abbey S5". Lastly, the art of art forgery is looked at in "Art and Craft", a documentary about art forger Mark Landis. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Giant Anime Sale! To help us clear some shelf space, we've put over 3,000 Anime DVDs on sale. We’re keeping about 500 titles, replacing what we can with BluRay, and freeing up room for new stuff. So, c'mon by -- everything on the Anime wall is for sale: $5/ea or 5 for $20. Sorry, none of the BluRays are for sale.

Paul Cox's "Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh" (1987) seems to have parked itself in the #1 position of our most rented Arts & Artists list (which covers painting, graffiti, crafts, architecture, drawing, graphic design and more) -- it's been up there for at least the last year and a half. Zachary Heinzerling's "Cutie and the Boxer" (2013; a look at two artists: Ushio Shinohara and his wife Noriko) has moved up a spot to second place followed by a new arrival, "The Oyler House" (2012). The rest of the list is filled by the likes of Max Ernst, Antonio Gaudi, Alexander Calder, the PBS series "Art: 21" and "Craft in America". Btw, if you're looking for Photography & Photographers, we have a different list for those. In any case, you'll find lots of interesting and inspirational documentaries in the Arts & Artists section, here are the top renters:
1 VINCENT: LIFE AND DEATH OF... (1987)
2 CUTIE AND THE BOXER
3 OYLER HOUSE
4 ART: 21: SEASON 07
5 PAINTERS PAINTING
6 SEMI COLIN
7 CALDER, ALEXANDER
8 FAR OUT ISN'T FAR ENOUGH
9 FOR NO GOOD REASON
10 SIMON SCHAMA'S POWER OF ART
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
