Reposting this from the /central home page:

These are the most often turned, or rented, discs in GreenCine's 5 year history. You probably won't be surprised by all of these, but perhaps a few...


City of God
Battle Royale (Special Edition)
American Splendor
Dead Man
Lost in Translation
Dark Days
Eraserhead
Spirited Away
Kill Bill vol.1
Bottle Rocket


Now then... see if you can guess some of the titles that are in the next 10 after these, the next 10 all-time renting DVDs at GreenCine.

Hints: One of the next 10 on the list would like fries with that, and another has the last line "Silencio..."

Well, those'd be supersize me, and Mulholland Drive. I'm going to guess Kill Bill vol. 2 is in there somewhere.

battle of algiers, tin drum, the incredibles, hmmm

Good guess, but not in the next 10. It's definitely up there somewhere though.

"battle of algiers, tin drum, the incredibles, hmmm
crash, hotel rwanda, million dollar baby, little miss sunshine, da vinci code, sideways, 1900, napoleon dynamite?"

All good guesses. Little Miss Sunshine is the only one in the next 20, though. I'll look at the rest of the list after that to see if any of the others are there somewhere.

And now, to be a tease (but not on purpose), I'm going out of town, camping for a couple of days. On Friday night I'll post the rest of the list! Keep those guesses coming 'til then.

Cheers.

If these aren't in the top 20 I imagine they will be before too long:

Pan's Labyrinth
Children of Men

Really surprised to see "Dark Days" in there.

That name reminded me of "Donnie Darko."

Broken Flowers, The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tanenbaums, Ma Vie en Rose, Mystery Train, Princess Monake or however the hell you spell it.

Eternal Sunshine has gotten be there.
I'm also thinking Audition.

hmm...I surprised there isn't any TV in there. In the top 20 maybe...I can't believe The Sopranos or Six Feet Under or something didn't make it.

Maybe the series are tallied by disc, not aggregated? I'd expect anime, too, since that is one of the crown jewels for many who join. I wonder how the genres stack up, percentage-wise. It would be really interesting, for example, if action films beat foreign language and documentaries and drama.

I'd think so. Also TV are probably still a minority to specific movie titles.

>I'd expect anime, too, since that is one of the crown jewels for many who join.

Well, Spirited Away. There is so darn *many* anime titles. I imagine an anime series is in the top 20 but I have no idea which one.

Um, isn't underdog back from camp yet.

Whoa! It's SATURDAY night now. Underdog is LATE! And why am I at home? Oh well, I have some movies to watch and plenty of Vodka in the freezer. Teehee. *ponders what Whoppers choc. milk sauce, milk and vodka would taste like*

I hate vodka. ._.

Hey wooz, if you gimme ya numba, I'll drunkenly call you tonight and then break my phone. Happens every time! XD


My guesses: ummm...Howl's Moving Castle and Metropolis? Some Monty Python flick, Seven Samurai, Pulp Fiction? Soylent Green, Casablanca, Citizen Kane? Ghost in the Shell? Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks?

Whoa! I just realized I *don't* have any of my usual vodka in my freezer! Did you take it! Give it back! I love vodka. I had to improvise a white russian with rum and kalua and milk. Not bad if you use enough ice. Gad, I'm just glad I wasn't desperate enough to try a white russian with gin.

My number is 42 by 20 by 17 and my legs are 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 by 11. Last time I broke my phone I had to have it in a cast for five point two six seven weeks. It still hurts during solar eclipses.

Sorry I'm late! I almost didn't make it back from camping. And I sort of didn't want to come back from camping. ;-)

I'll post the answers first thing in the AM (have the full list at the office). Thanks for chiming in and hanging in.

I'm surprised no one guessed The Adventures of Pluto Nash, that's always been one of our big renters.
