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 the titles below, Black Snake Moan also comes out on DVD today, but from my review you can see that I wouldn't highly recommend that film. It's interesting, but not entirely noteworthy.

Shooter
This movie tried to make Mark Wahlberg into a bankable action star, and though that didn't really work, this overlooked shoot-'em-up is definitely worth watching. Designed to stoke your most far-fetched conspiracy theories and entertain you in the process, Shooter follows an endearingly righteous sniper named Bob Lee Swagger (Wahlberg) as he tries to squirm out of being framed in a shady government plot. The somewhat silly premise is bolstered by a good supporting cast — particularly up-and-comer Kate Mara as the widow of Swagger's former partner. For more, check out my review.

One more suggestion if you

"Monk" — Season 5
Granted, I'm not a regular viewer of "Monk," and so all the seasons kind of blend together for me. But "Monk" isn't the kind of show you have to watch from the start to get a feeling for its greatest charm: Tony Shalhoub's fantastic performance as a skittish, obsessive-compulsive, and oddly brilliant detective. This four-disc set includes a bunch of special features, including both color and black-and-white versions of "Mr. Monk and the Leper," a noir-style episode.

Shooter really is worth the watch. And Monk is just priceless. Tony Shalhoub is simply wonderful in this role.
