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 check out the dreamboat special that is Leatherheads and Simon Pegg's comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run.

Sex and the City: The Movie
Well, the big day has arrived: the Sex and the City movie is here for you to rent or own. Whether you missed this one in theaters (hard to imagine) or are excited to fast-forward to your favorite parts, the fab four has come full circle back to your small screen. I'm interested in revisiting this one, since the movie is super long and there is a lot to take in.

This is the kind of movie for which special features were made. Get a load of these: commentary by director Michael Patrick King; a conversation with Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King; featurettes titled, "The Fabulous Fashion of Sex and the City," "Fergie in the Studio: Watch a Hit in the Making as the Singer Records Labels or Love for the Movie Soundtrack," and additional scenes.

So, are you bringing this one home this week?

Three more selections to go, so


More TV-to-DVDs
The neverending flow of TV-to-DVD continues this week as more of our favorite shows return to the air with new episodes. Here are two of my favorites, out today.

  • Samantha Who?: Season One
    My mom called after the Emmys to ask about that show Jean Smart is on and I told her Samantha Who?. Then we got into one of those "who's on first?" (ha!) conversations where she kept saying, "Who?" and I would say, "No, that's the name of the show." Anyway, I convinced her to give it a shot because it really is one of the sweetest, most entertaining little scripted comedies around right now. Special features include a blooper reel, deleted scenes, and commentary.
  • Brothers and Sisters: Season Two
    This ABC drama is coming back this Sunday, so catch up on last season while you can! Special features include featurettes ("TV Dinners: Food From Season Two," "Open House: Designing The Brothers and Sisters Set"), and bloopers.

This American Life: Season One
I know a lot of people who, despite my encouragement, still haven't checked out the TV version of this popular Ira Glass NPR radio series, so I'm hoping this DVD release will get more eyeballs on it. The show is unlike most things on television right now, as it gives Americans of all shapes, sizes, colors, and geographical locations a chance to tell their stories.

I can't help but think how nice it feels to explore America this way in the midst of a heated campaign season that can sometimes make the country feel bitterly divided.

I saw Sex and the City twice in the theaters and I have lukewarm feelings toward it, but I'll eventually buy it. I'm just not in a rush.

Dude I watched the movie, I guess it's like an extended cut it was like over Three Hours Long!! I liked it, but it was too long. I didn't see it in theaters so I'm not sure what was added and if it was totally neccisary but all in all a decent movie

I netflixed it, and it's arriving today. WOOHOO! Yes, I'm cheap. The last movie I saw in a theater was Dark Knight, and before that it was Harry Potter. I only see BIG blockbusters that require a big screen experience (D.K., HP, Titanic, Die Hard etc) because they lose something on the small screen. I didn't think SATC would be like that, so I waited, and now the waiting is over! HOT DIGGETY DAMN! Do you KNOW how hard it is to avoid spoilers for a movie you REALLY REALLY want to see?

CANNOT WAIT TO GET HOME TONIGHT!! SATC:TM is sitting on my doorstep as delievered by UPS this morning. My fiance and I were living in separate states when the movie came out (much to his glee) and so we'll be watching it together tonight. (He's a closeted SATC fan...As most straight men.) :) On the netflix note, totally can't wait for Leatherheads to arrive in my mailbox. G. Clooney and J. Krasinski? :drool:

My birthday is next Wednesday so I just requested that someone get SATC for me as a gift then. I am so excited to watch it again, even though I had somewhat lukewarm feelings towards it in the theaters.

i'm so excited about SATC coming out - but i have to say tha i'm a little sad with HBO right now. i pre-ordered the DVD a while ago when they first posted it on the site and i don't even know when it's shipping. i got an email that said that they know i ordered it but no shipping ETC. that's frustrating to me!
