DVD of the Week Rides Again…

Friday, September 26th, 2008

Hi all,

Our new Cataloging Assistant, Gayle, has selected this week’s pick, Grosse Pointe Blank. For those of you who missed this 90’s gem, I have two words for you: romantic comedy! Plus, it stars John Cusack, who was still leaning more towards crushable than creepy back then.

Until next week,


DVD o’ the Week

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

This week’s selection, Rope, is by David R. Alfred Hitchcock delivers another thriller, this one inspired by the actual Leopold-Loeb murder case. See if you can guess how many takes are in the film! (Hint: not a whole lot)
