New on DVD, Taken

What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue.

Taken
I never got around to seeing Taken when it was in theaters, so I'm glad it's out on DVD. The movie stars Liam Neeson as a former spy whose daughter (Maggie Grace) is kidnapped while vacationing with a friend in Paris. The kidnappers work for human traffickers, which gives the plot an even creepier twist.

Special features include an extended cut audio commentary by director Pierre Morel, cinematographer Michel Abramowicz and car stunt supervisor Michel Julienne, and a making-of featurette.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
I'm intrigued by this prequel to the first two Underworld films that explains the origins of the big feud between the Vampires and the Lycans. The story follows Sonja (Rhona Mitra) and Lucian (Michael Sheen) who lead the Lycans in a battle against the Vampire king Viktor (Bill Nighy — love that guy). While it's not a critical darling or anything (see the splat below), it looks action-packed and fantastically fun.

Special features include a script-to-screen featurette, a piece about creating the look of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, and a music video.

Passengers
This curious little movie starring Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson only played in 125 theaters for like, a minute. Which is strange because sure, it looks so-so but both of those stars are hot right now, and plenty of mediocre movies play in theaters for awhile. I hope some of you check it out and let me know what you think.

The plot description from Netflix: "When therapist Claire Summers (Anne Hathaway) starts working with the surviving passengers of a plane crash, she discovers that their account of the tragedy differs significantly from the airline's official, sanitized version. As she digs for the truth, the survivors suddenly begin to vanish, and Claire finds herself swept into a dark world of intrigue and conspiracy."

Special features include deleted scenes, and director and cast commentary.

I like Bill Nighy as Viktor, but after watching him in Love Actually, I can never take him as seriously as before! lol
