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'll sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue.

Casino Royale
Picking up where many Bond movies left off — including a 1967 spoof of the same name — Daniel Craig reinvents Bond as we know him, creating a sort of everyman hero. Sure, he's still smart and handsome, but he's also got a temper, is often klutzy, and at times makes poor decisions. Yet this only makes you root more for the gruff British spy with a "license to kill." Eva Green makes for a refreshingly unlikely Bond girl, while Judi Dench plays the tough, witty M. It's dark, funny and thrilling all at once. For a more in-depth view, check out my full review of Casino Royale.

Two more must-sees, so

The Holiday
Admittedly, this movie didn't break any cinematic ground, but as cheesy romantic comedies go, The Holiday (check out my review here) stands out for its stellar performances, if not its slightly absurd premise. Kate Winslet is a joy to watch as Iris, who swaps houses with Amanda (Cameron Diaz) so they can escape their love woes. What we get are very sweet and well-written scenes between Iris and her octogenarian screenwriter neighbor, plus plenty of adorable moments with a very hot Jude Law.

"Bosom Buddies" — Season 1
Just when you thought this New DVD Tuesday couldn't get any better, I toss you some Tom Hanks in drag. In this TV series from the early '80s, two enthusiastic young men are just kicking off their advertising careers when their building is condemned. A female friend offers to let them stay in her building, but there's a catch: The building only allows female residents! Oh, the awkward hilarity that ensues when the men adopt identities as Hildegard and Buffy in order to rent a room. Man, this show takes me back.

I've got Casino Royale set aside to watch, but it's one of those films I not too fussed about, so I'm off to read your review Buzz to convince me to dig it out. (I think I've lost it :oops:)
