New arrivals for the week of February 3, 2015
The Best of Me
Dracula Untold
John Wick
Ouija

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new-releases include: "The Best of Me" (w/Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden), "Dracula Untold" (w/Luke Evans, Dominic Cooper and Sarah Gadon), "John Wick" (w/Keanu Reeves, Adrianne Palicki, Willem Dafoe and Ian McShane) and "Ouija" (w/Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff and Bianca Santos). Other stuff worth having a look at: "Dear White People" (African-American Film Critics Association winner for Best Independent Feature Film), "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" (w/Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy), "Hector and the Search for Happiness" (directed by Peter Chelsom; w/Simon Pegg) and "Video Games: The Movie" (which James says isn't very good but makes you want to play all your old games again). Disney released three more BluRay titles from the Studio Ghibli collection: Pom Poko (1994), Porco Rosso (1992) and Tales from Earthsea (2006). We got a couple more international TV titles: "Crime Scene Cleaner" (Germany) and "The Inspector and the Sea S2" (Sweden/Germany). And, from the "way-back" collection -- season two of the seminal coming-of-age TV series "Wonder Years" came out on DVD and Screen Archives released "Breaking Away" on BluRay (with a bunch of extras!). You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Giant Anime Sale continues -- now with lower prices! In the first week of the sale, about 20% of our Anime stuff got scooped up. But, we still need to get rid of more. So, we've dropped the price to $4 each or 5 for $16 (that's like getting one free!). There are still lots of great titles -- c'mon by! One way or another, we'll get the Anime titles we held back to rent out on Sunday -- just in time for 1/2 price Anime Rentals Day!

The podium for Top Renting B Movies has stayed the same, the titles have just rearranged themselves a bit: the Roger Ebert penned / Russ Meyer directed cult classic "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" (1970) took over in 1st Place, the genre defining "Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS" (1975) follows, and the women-in-prison collection "Prison Girls Collection" (3 films!) sits in 3rd. If you've already seen all those, you could move laterally and get a different Russ Meyer title ("Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"), the next Ilsa title ("Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks") or another women-in-prison title ("Bad Girls Behind Bars"). Or, you could go vertically and work your way through the top renters in order -- from the Scream Queens to Ed Wood to Troma and beyond -- that would make for quit a weekend!. Here are the Top Renters in our B-Movie section:
1 BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
2 ILSA: SHE WOLF OF THE SS
3 PRISON GIRLS COLLECTION
4 SANTA CLAWS
5 WOOD, ED: BRIDE OF THE MONSTER
6 BARE BEHIND BARS
7 BIZARRE LUST OF A SEXUAL DEVIANT
8 BLOOD BATH 2
9 CANNIBAL TERROR
10 CHOPPING MALL
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
