New arrivals for the week of March 3, 2015
The Captive
Foxcatcher
The Last of Robin Hood
To Write Love on Her Arms

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest titles include: "The Captive" (w/Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman and Rosario Dawson), "Foxcatcher" (w/Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo), "The Last of Robin Hood" (w/Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon) and "To Write Love on Her Arms" (w/Kat Dennings, Chad Michael Murray and Rupert Friend). There seems to be some confusion about "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" -- everyone except our distributor says it's coming out on Friday... we'll see. A few new documentaries: "Algorithms" (about the little known world of Blind Chess), "Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Enter Here" (about Russia's most celebrated international artists) and "Messenger of the Truth" (Father Jerzy, the chaplain of the Solidarity movement in Poland). Some new TV stuff, too: Da Vinci's Demons S2, Longmire S3 and Outlander S1V1. And, from across the ocean: Anzac Girls (Australia, miniseries based on the Australian and New Zealand Army Nursing Service), Marie's Mind for Murders S1 (Germany) and Nicolas Le Floch S2 (France). Lastly, Andy Ray Lemon sent us a copy of his new documentary, "Mondo Fuzz: Twilight of the Idles" -- a low-fi documentary chronicling Austin’s underground punk and garage rock scenes. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" (2013) remains in the top position in this week's Top Comedy Films with a couple of new-to-the-list runners up, "The Skeleton Twins" (2014) and "Bad Words" (2013). Nice to see Jon Favreau's "Chef" (2014) in the Top 10 along with a few more newcomers, "This is Where I Leave You" (2014) and "Girl on a Bicycle" (2013). Just like last time, Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" (2012) wraps up the Top 10. You're not seeing "Ishtar" (1987) on the list because it still hasn't gotten a proper DVD release -- but, we've got it on BluRay! As always, this list does not include films kept in the Classics, Independent and/or International sections... and of course, Woody Allen gets his own Top Renting section. Here they are, the Top 100 Comedies (plus a few) rented at That's Rentertainment...
1 GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
2 SKELETON TWINS, THE
3 BAD WORDS
4 CHEF
5 THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU
6 GIRL ON A BICYCLE
7 ENOUGH SAID
8 THAT AWKWARD MOMENT
9 BEGIN AGAIN
10 MOONRISE KINGDOM
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
