What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

"Weeds": Season 2
The super-intense cliffhanger of the "Weeds" second season finale still has me reeling. If you thought the first season of this Showtime comedy was impressive, you ain't seen nothing yet. I'm so glad the show continues to get recognition in the form of Emmy nominations because I think both the writing and the acting on this show are stupendous. I know I'm gushing, but the series is seriously amazing, and this second season is particularly mind-boggling.

Mary Louise Parker is still Nancy Botwin, everyone's favorite pot dealer in the wealthy California suburb of Agrestic — only this season she strikes out with her business partner Conrad who defiantly carves his own path away from his domineering (and drug queen) aunt. Zooey Deschanel makes a guest appearance as the hilariously weird Kat, Andy gets down with his Jewish roots and Shane learns some, ah, important lessons from his uncle. Need I say more? Definitely watch these DVDs before the third season starts up again on August 13. You will not regret it!

Two more new DVDs, so

The Host
Unfortunately, I never got the chance to see this in the theaters, but based on all the critical praise, I wish I had. In particular, I am awed by this quote from the Time review: "If this madly entertaining movie has a fault, it's that it's too ingenious for the genre it ostensibly inhabits." Wow. The Host is a bona fide monster movie with all the shivery horror-flick trimmings, though it has elements of a traditional dramedy as well (that same Time article called it "sort of a Little Miss Korean Sunshine"). The story follows the Park family who own and operate a snack shop near the Seoul's Han River. When a slithery, mischievous sea mutant makes off with one of the Park girls, Hyun-seo, the family is devastated, but they soon discover she's still alive and resolve to save her.

Zodiac is one of those movies that impressed me when I saw it and then grew more impressive the longer I thought about it. As 2007 continues, it remains one of my favorite films of the year so far. The movie is a psychological thriller about a real-life San Francisco serial killer from the 60s and 70s who called himself the Zodiac. In the still-unsolved case, the Zodiac taunted police and journalists by sending letters and cryptograms to the offices of the San Francisco Chronicle. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Jr., the film follows the investigators and reporters who became obsessed with this killer-turned-media phenomena. For more on Zodiac check out my review.

Buzz these are some great pics. I completely forgot that Zodiac is out already. I wonder if their still some DVDs left in the video store. hmm...i might go right now. Lastly, Host is a movie i recommend. so original and if you're sick of the movies that Hollywood is throwing at us at the moment (Chuck and Larry and some of the unnecessary prequels) for examples), this movie is great alternative.

Oy. I so want to see this. And boohoo Netflix is still not up. Although I think there is a feature that allows you to request things before they're released. I'm pretty sure I did that with Weeds Season 1.

Netflix is still down and it's making me crazy since I want to add so many movies to my list. Weeds will be added for sure. And Zodiac is well worth seeing for those who missed it in the theaters.

Netflix's site has been down for almost a full day. They kept changing the time it would be fixed, and have now completely removed a probable time so who knows when we will be able to add this to the queue!
