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.
Army Wives: Season 1
I admitted earlier this month that I'm addicted to the Lifetime series Army Wives when I added it to my must-haves list for June, and when I declared it No. 3 of the top 10 reasons to keep your TV on this Summer. And I'm the first to admit that the show (based on Tanya Biank's memoir Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives) didn't entice me when I first heard about it. Now, however, I find it to be intelligent, humorous and awfully compelling, given that it centers around the current war.

The second season just premiered last Sunday, so you've got some time to catch up while recording the new episodes.

Special featurettes include titles like: "'Have at It' With the Army Wives" which is a "Q&A Session with the cast of Army Wives featuring questions submitted by fans" and "Wives On the Homefront," including "an inside look at real army wives as they share their fascinating stories and experiences."

Two more titles, so

The Other Boleyn Girl
I chose the book The Other Boleyn Girl as my very first selection for the Buzz Book Club, and knowing that the screen adaptation starred Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson as the competing sisters I was curious to see what parts of the novel they kept and what they skipped. All in all, I wasn't totally thrilled with the outcome but still found the filmmakers' choices with the source material interesting. If you missed this one in the theater, now is your chance to check it out.

Special features include a featurette on bringing the historical story and novel to life, as well as a featurette on the life of a lady and court etiquette in 16th century England.

The Bucket List
Look at those guys. That's the happiest DVD cover I've seen in a while. Anyway, The Bucket List had a very successful opening weekend at the box office and opened some peoples' eyes to the potential of a demographic often overlooked by Hollywood. You know, anyone over the age of 35.

The story follows two very ill fellas who happen to get placed in the same hospital room and decide together to break out of their hospital gowns and live the life they have left to its fullest. It's probably a good choice for an at-home movie with a multi-generational audience.

Special features include the music video for the song John Mayer wrote for the film, "Say."

I started watching Army Wives when I found out that Catherine Bell was in it. I've missed her since JAG went off the air! She's a fantastic actress! The show's great!

Great list, but can I just state the obvious? Real army wives don't look like that.
