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. In addition to my selections below you can also add Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail, Everwood: Season Two, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager: Season Two to your queue.

Friday the 13th
The Friday the 13th remake was a smash hit at the box office when it debuted in theaters a little while back. The duo who brought you the Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, Michael Bay and Marcus Nispel, bring the creepy story of Crystal Lake back to the big screen (which you can now play on your small screen).

Here's how Netflix describes the plot: "Ignoring the warnings of the locals, a group of teenage camp counselors takes on the job of reopening Camp Crystal Lake — on Friday the 13th no less, and raise the ire of Jason Voorhees (Derek Mears), a masked, homicidal maniac."

The weather may be nice these days but many people still love watching a scary movie from the comfort of their own home. Plus, the DVD includes special features: deleted scenes and a featurette about exploring "the rebirth of Jason Voorhees for a new moviegoing era."


Two more up next so


What Goes Up
This little indie movie looked like it had promise but unfortunately didn't fare too well with the critics. One wrote, "Jonathan Glatzer’s directorial debut What Goes Up is a quirky-small-town dramedy that just barely avoids the 'overly cutesy' and 'self-indulgently melancholy' traps that snare so many indies."

Still, I'm curious to see this movie thanks to its cast that includes Steve Coogan, Molly Shannon, Olivia Thirlby, Josh Peck, and Hilary Duff. The story takes place in the '80s and follows a reporter (Coogan) who is sent to a small town to cover the launch of the Challenger space shuttle and gets to know some troubled high school students in the process.


Burn Notice: Season Two
USA's hit series Burn Notice is back on TV this Summer but for those of you who are a little behind, you can now catch up on the second season.

The second season of this Miami-set spy show follows blacklisted super-spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) "as he takes on all new death-defying assignments in hopes of getting closer to his new employers, the people that were possibly responsible for his ousting." The cast also includes Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as Carla and of course Gabrielle Anwar as Michael's ex-girlfriend.

Special features include audio commentaries on select episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel and a "NIXin' It Up" featurette with series creator Matt Nix on Episode "Do No Harm."

What Goes Up only got 8% at Rotten Tomatoes? I think that makes "didn't fare well with the critics" something of an understatement!
