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.

What movies do these come from:

“It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.” 

"So Crates: The only true wisdom consists in knowing … that you know nothing. That’s us, dude!”
