LYING: Naw, this isn't coming out. I was just Lying! (Actually it is. Please rent it. My children depend on your money)
PASSENGERS: The long awaited awaited sequel to Antonioni's "The Passenger" finally arrives courtesy of Anne Hathaway! Joy!
TAKEN: I've taken a liking to this film. I love seeing Kinsey shoot people. When he's isn't solving problems in the bedroom, he's solving problems with a 9mm, which is inherently a phallic symbol.
UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS: I'm getting sick and tired of vampires. If we get one more vampire movie, I'll... I'll... I'll... get pissy about it.
WISE BLOOD: *steps onto car hood* Here at the Church of Videotheque, we don't believe in any hibby-jibby and voo-doo like mail order rentals or getting the edited version of a film. We just get what you need at a resonible price. *steps off hood* That's how the main character talks in this strange film about the south and their wacky religious beliefs. Directed by the famous John Huston (who has a small role in it himself).
OTHER NEW RELEASES:

It's a Free World...

ALL THINGS MUST PASS:
That was the title song of George Harrison's debut album. It was originally written for Abbey Road and Let It Be, but I suppose the song was too wise and too honest for the rest of The Beatles. But he's right. All things do pass. Our employee, France Gall, has finally hit the ol' rickety road. She's moved on to better stuff. Okay, not really. She's actually avoiding the feds after trying to avoid paying taxes from the moment she turned eighteen. Videotheque and myself wish her nothing but the best on her continuing journey of life. Bon voyage!
So with France Gall a thing the past and only a lingering memory, we have to fill her spot quickly. We now have a new member of our Videotheque family, Ronald (or RV). We open our arms and gladly embrace his entry in the the world of Videotheque and into the hearts of customers. We wish you the best!
Our very own Grace will be having a small raffle/lunch benefit for the fight against AIDS on May 23 at:
300 S. Los Robles Ave
Pasadena, CA 91101
Do you like nachos, drinks, hot dogs and the possibility of winning free stuff? Then drop in by with a donation of five dollars and have yourself a good time while helping the fight against AIDS. Trust us; you'll feel good about it!
First, our employee picks:
MARK W'S "MIXTAPE FOR YOUR MISSUS": Mark likes music. Music makes Mark merry. He also noticed that the ladies love music. He's watching out for you, the reader and customer. Get your missus in the mood with the soothing melodies of Serge Gainsbourg, Antonio Carlos Jobin, and ABBA. And when this stuff helps your relationship, you can come in and say thanks.
R.V.'S "HUNGRY": Until he finally got hired here, R.V. has been living off of rations and whatever type of bread he can find in the dumpster behind Costco. But now, he's a member of the work force again. Do celebrate his ability to once again feed himself, he's made his first section devoted to the find art of grubbing down. Some of the juicy and spicy meatballs you'll find here include "The Hunger", "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", and "Cannibal Holocoust". Nummy, nummy, num-num!
Now, our misc sections:
CANNES YOU DIG IT?: It's that time of the year already. Cannes Film Festival is rolling in again later this week so big-time hot shots can buy the films distribution and bring it here. In celebration, we've put up a small section devoted to all the winners of Cannes past. Here you can find your fix of all sorts of classy movies including "A Man and a Woman", "Missing", "Marty", "Rosetta", and "Kagemusha".
DOM DELUISE: Nothing broke my heart more this week than to hear than Pizza the Hut had died this week. Relive all those funny moments by renting "Cannonball Run", "Smokey and the Bandit II", "History of the World: Part 1", and "Fail Safe". Wait... "Fail Safe" isn't funny...
SEE YA LATER!:
I love you all.
MORAL OF THE WEEK:
Don't post on the anything on the internet. It'll come back and bite you in the ol' tookus! *cough* http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/04/myspace-diatrib/ *cough*
The heat's getting to us.
