Top Local DVDs: 'Rite' does Wrong to 'Gnomeo & Juliet'
Exorcism horror tale pushes cute, animated garden gnomes over the edge on Redbox list.
These are the top 10 local Redbox rentals for the past seven days.
There is a Redbox at Hopkinton's Cumberland Farms, 71 W. Main St.
The list conatins nine of the 10 DVDs since we last published it, though most have switched places.
Just Go With It is still No. 1 and a new horror entry at No. 5 knocked Gnomeo and Juliet out of the Top 10 to No. 11.

PG-13 for Western violence and disturbing images. With Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Hailee Steinfeld. How does Western violence differ from Eastern violence?
