Every week we post Top 10 and Top 20 New Release rental lists. The Top 10 is posted on our facebook page and in store. The Top 20 is only in store, this is based on what has rented the most in the last week. Come in and see if your favorite made the list and check out what your neighbors are renting.
The section header is a quick description of the type of movie. This should make it easier to find a movie when you only know what your in the mood for or to find something similar to what you've enjoyed before.

Action, some sci-fi and war movies what some call "guy movies"

We've found movies, TV shows, mini series and just about anything else that could come on DVD and blu-ray. Simply use the Offline Search Service. Give us the title and preferred format (ex. DVD). Then add as much of the following information to narrow the search: year, studio, lead actors, director etc. We'll get back to you with availability and price.
The Blog is still not saving so here is the Oscar Ballot Post
It's time for Oscar Ballots again! This is the 7th year for Logan Lake and the 3nd year in Merritt. We are doing it much the same way we have the last couple of years. From now until February 25th customers can get a ballot in store. Pick who you think will win the Oscar out of 7 categories. Yes 7 categories, so you want to fill in all of them. Also make sure your name and phone number are readable, you can't get a prize if we don't know who you are. The ballots have to be in the box by close of business February 25th.
We don't know what we will giving away until after the Oscars but we are planning to to a bunch of small prizes again. It will all depend how well people pick, to how many winners we have. Kinda an odd way to run a contest but it works. We know this is mostly about bragging rights.
The results for Oscar 2017: Thank-you! to all of you who played. It's a guess, it's fun, and no one can laugh at you if you get them all wrong because I'm the only one who sees the graded ballots. The end was a huge surprise. In Logan Lake, we got 52 ballots back to the store an improvement. Only 3 ballots got 4 of the 7 winners, 19 ballots got 3 and 15 ballots got 2 making 15 ballots with 1 or none right.
In Merritt pick better this year, we got 61 ballots back. The only one who pick 5 out of 7 winners was in Merritt. Only 2 ballots picked 4 out of 7, 13 ballots got 3 winners and 26 ballots get 2 right with 19 ballots with 1 or none right. Still had trouble getting some of you to fill in the all 7 categories.
The results for Oscar 2016: Thank-you! to all of you who played. It's a guess, it's fun, and no one can laugh at you if you get them all wrong because I'm the only one who sees the graded ballots. The winners surprised a lot of us. In Logan Lake, we got 41 ballots back to the store not our worst but not a great return. Only 3 ballots got 3 right and 15 ballots got 2 right making 23 ballots with 1 or none right.
In Merritt really got into it this year, we got 83 ballots back. Still had trouble getting some of you to fill in the all 7 categories. Just 6 ballots got 3 right and 20 ballots get 2 right with the majority (57 ballots) with 1 or none right. It's great to see so many of you playing.
The results for Oscar 2015: In Logan Lake, we got 36 ballots back to the store that is our worst turn. Thank-you! to all of you who played. I don't understand why some folks were afraid to play, because they didn't know the answers. It's a guess, it's fun, and no one can laugh at you if you get them all wrong because I'm the only one who sees the graded ballots. It was not an easy year. One person played the odds and ended up with ballots that had 6, 5 and 4 right. Then 6 ballots got 3 right and 10 ballots got 2 right. In Merritt we got 34 ballots back. It was their first year. Had trouble getting some of you to fill in the all 7 categories, it's heart braking to see nothing filled out on the back, when they did well on the front. Just 2 ballots got 3 right and 9 ballots get 2 right. Very few people played multiple ballots which made playing the odds very hard.
The results for Oscar 2014: We got 60 ballots back to the store! Which blew past my goal of 50. Thank-you! to all of you who played because if you don't play, you can't win. Still having trouble getting some of you to fill in the all 7 categories, it's heart braking to see all the ones on the front right and nothing filled out on the back. It was a man who got all 7 right for the first time. The women are playing more and dominated the rest: 5 ballots got 5 right, 7 ballots got 4 right and 15 ballots got 3 right. All the people who got 4 or more right get gift certificates towards movie rentals and one lucky person had their ballot randomly drawn for a Rent 1 get 1 gift certificate.
The results for Oscar 2013: This was a tough year, with even the "experts" being off the mark. Glad to see more men playing and some of them won. Only 43 ballots made it back to the store, which is an improvement, not much of one, but an improvement. Three ballots got 5 right, 7 ballots got 4 right and 11 ballots got 3 right. All the people who got 4 or 5 right get gift certificates towards movie rentals.
The results for Oscar 2012: Only 42 ballots made it back to the store, meaning we missed our goal of getting over 50. One ballot got 6 right, 4 ballots got 4 right and 6 ballots got 3 right. All the people who got at least 3 right got gift certificates towards movie rentals.
In 2011 we had 48 ballots entered, of that 13 ballots had 4 correct, 8 ballots had 5 correct and 4 ballots had 6 correct. We did 12 smaller prizes so that the people who had 6 or 5 correct all got something.
