New arrivals for the week of May 5, 2015
Black or White
Mr Turner
Selma
Spare Parts

Greetings everyone,

How is it finals time already? It seem like the semester just started! This week's biggest new releases are: "Black or White" (w/Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer), "Mr Turner" (w/Timothy Spall and Lesley Manville), "Selma" (w/David Oyelowo, Oprah Winfrey, Tim Roth, etc) and "Spare Parts" (w/George Lopez, Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis). Also of interest: Kevin Macdonald's "Black Sea" (w/Jude Law), the musical "The Last Five Years" (w/Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan), Ryan Gosling's "Lost River" (w/Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Matt Smith and Eva Mendes) and Liv Ullmann's "Miss Julie" (w/Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton). And, "Fifty Shades of Grey" comes out on Friday. Lots of new TV stuff, too: Broadchurch S2, Covert Affairs S5, Dalziel & Pascoe S11, DCI Banks S3, Halt and Catch Fire S1, Masters of Sex S2, Mr Selfridge S3, Parenthood S6, Scott and Bailey S3 and White Collar S6. We'll have some new titles for the International Mystery section next week. Only one Criterion title came in this week (Kihachi Okamoto's "Sword of Doom" 1966) but a glance at next week's packing slip shows a dozen more on the way. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

Stanley Kubrick's original "The Shining" (1980) is the number one renter from our Horror Section this time around followed by John Carpenter's original "Halloween" (1978). Rounding out the Top 3 is relative newcomer, "Afflicted" -- written, directed and starring Derek Lee and Clif Prowse (2013). Although the rest of the Top 10 are mostly newer titles, you can always count on the more classic Horror films to make their mark on the Top 100. For the truly classic titles, check out the Top Classic SciFi & Horror list -- you'll find all your Bela Lugosi, Claude Rains and Boris Karloff tiles there. Here are the Top Renters for the past 12 months from our Horror Film Section:
1 SHINING, THE
2 HALLOWEEN (1978)
3 AFFLICTED
4 PURGE, THE: ANARCHY
5 SACRAMENT, THE
6 STONEHEARST ASYLUM
7 CABIN IN THE WOODS, THE
8 AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
9 DRACULA UNTOLD
10 HANNIBAL
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
