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 picks below, you can also add Priceless starring Audrey Tautou and Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson to your queue.

Squee! Pixar's Wall-E is out on DVD! The more I think about this movie, the more I'm impressed with what the creators managed to pull off. First of all, they managed to make a desolate, post-apocalyptic Earth seem like the ideal setting for a love story that will give anyone with a pulse the warm fuzzies. They also managed to give a robot that can't really speak the most adorable, expressive puppy-dog eyes this world has ever known. It's quite the feat, and if you weren't able to catch this gem in the theater, you might want to bring it home ASAP.

Even if you did see this on the big screen, the DVD has plenty of special features that have me pretty excited as well. They include: several all-new animated shorts, deleted scenes, a ride through space with Wall-E, and a feature on the history of Pixar.

Two more coming up, so


The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
This second installment of the Traveling Pants franchise made me a convert. There was just something about the sequel that captivated me, and I'm excited to re-watch it in the comfort of my own home. Maybe it's because I could better relate to the girls now that they're out of high school and thrust into a more adult world that offers up new complications. Or it could be the bounty of handsome men cast as love interests to the ladies. Either way, it's quality entertainment.

Specials include a featurette titled "Go Jump Off a Cliff: How the Exhilarating Final Sequence — Not Originally in the Script — was Inspired by Fan Reaction to the First Movie," additional scenes, and a gag reel.

Tropic Thunder
Gather up your least politically correct friends and settle in for some belly laughs (as well as awkward and uncomfortable moments) with this DVD. Tropic Thunder, directed by Ben Stiller, follows a bunch of actors (nearly every Hollywood stereotype is represented here) who head out to make a Vietnam War movie that quickly gets out of control. For the most part, the satire is funny, though there are head-scratching moments to be sure.

I have a feeling the behind-the-scenes features might be as funny as — if not funnier than — the actual movie. They include a featurette titled "Blowing S#%t Up," deleted and extended scenes, and an alternate ending.
