New arrivals for the week of March 31, 2015
The Imitation Game
Interstellar
Island of Lemurs: Madagascar
Wild

Greetings everyone,

This week's biggest new releases include: "The Imitation Game" (w/Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley), "Interstellar" (w/Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain), "Island of Lemurs: Madagascar" (w/the voice of Morgan Freeman) and "Wild" (w/Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Gaby Hoffmann). Smaller titles include: "3 Nights in the Desert" (w/Wes Bentley, Vincent Piazza and Amber Tamblyn), "Rewrite" (w/Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei), and "A MusiCares Tribute To Paul McCartney" (from the February 10, 2012 event). On the TV front, we picked up the 3rd season of "Veep" (w/Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the Vice-President) and the 1st season of HBO's "Silicon Valley" (written by Mike Judge). And, in the older TV stuff category, we finally got the 4th season of "Arrested Development" and the 2nd and 3rd seasons of "League of Gentlemen" -- completing both those series. Also, Olive Films continues cranking out great re-releases on BluRay -- and we keep getting them! These are all the new ones this week: "Alice's Restaurant" (1969), "Beat Generation" (1959), "Behind Enemy Lines" (1997), "Caveman" (1981), "Facts of Life" (1960), "How to Beat the High Cost of Living" (1980), "The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry" (1945), "What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?" (1966) and "Without a Clue" (1988). Lastly, we added Michael Palin's "Pole to Pole" to our documentary section. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Stephanie Soechtig's "Fed Up" (2014), a film about America's obesity epidemic, is the Top Renter in our Environmental & Social Issues category. Another food related documentary, "Growing Cities" (2013), which looks at urban farming in America, came is 2nd. And, "Pandora's Promise" (2013), about the history and future of nuclear power, rounds out the podium in 3rd. Lately, we've noticed renewed interest in our Environmental & Social Issues category -- very nice to see! We have well over 100 titles in the ESI section with more being added regularly -- a great resource for anyone interested in subjects related to alternative energy, child slavery, sustainable food, pollution, animal rights, etc. Fwiw, other great local resource for Environmental issues are The Green Observer, Illinois Green Business Association, and Students for Environmental Concerns. Here are the Top Titles in the Environmental & Social Issues section:
1 FED UP
2 GROWING CITIES
3 PANDORA'S PROMISE
4 DISRUPTION
5 GMO OMG
6 COVE, THE
7 FARMLAND
8 FOOD, INC.
9 FRACKNATION
10 EARTH: THE BIOGRAPHY
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
