Oops

Um, yeah, forgot about posting the new movies as they come in, already. XD Well, we've added Cars 3, Blade Runner 2049, and A Bad Moms Christmas in February! Not sure what I've missed in between.

We also now have the popular new anime release, Yuri On Ice, and will be previewing it on Feb 16, at the Fruits Basket/Chinese New Year night, so if you love pretty boys and/or figure skating,don't miss it! (We are waiting on cataloging to add it to the shelf.)

Chinese New Year and New Movies!

On February 16th, we will be having a special Fruits Basket viewing to celebrate the Year of the Dog. Hope to see you there!

One of the things I am always asked is, "Do you have anything new?" The library spends around $400 a month on videos, so the answer is YES. Remembering what they are is often a problem, especially since the new releases usually have long waiting lists.

So, I am going to try posting our new titles here! (Disclaimer: if I stop, it's not because we've stopped getting movies, probably just because I forgot. Or got too busy. Or got bored with it. Heh, heh.)

Today we added:

The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Part 2 of Season One, and Season 2. (We already had Season 1 Part 1. By the way, in spite of what the catalog says, this is a combo set, so if you don't have a blu-ray player you can still watch it.)
Foreigner
Battle of the Sexes
American Made
The Osiris Child
Home Again
Mother!
IT
Dark Horse
Riddick: The Complete Collection
