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. Strangely, Parker Posey's latest indie film Broken English is already out on DVD today, too. Check out my review of the movie; I think it's worth a rent.

"Ugly Betty" — Season 1
Hooray for "Ugly Betty"! Just in time to get all caught up before the second season begins September 27, Betty's first season DVDs are releasing today. You can go back and relive all of our lovable heroine's finest, silliest, wisest and most embarrassing moments. From Betty's early days at Mode magazine to the mystery of Fey's death to the reappearance of Alex(is) Meade, "Ugly Betty" balanced comedy and drama in its first season better than most shows on TV. Of the special features, Amazon says, "Join executive producer Salma Hayek and actor Eric Mabius for exclusive show insights, and see what it takes for America Ferrera to get Bettyfied." If you're a Betty fan and overall TV junkie, it's time to grab this 6-disc box set for your collection. Bonus: there's also a Spanish version of the Season 1 DVDs releasing today.

Two more titles, so

The Lives of Others
The Lives of Others won the 2007 Oscar for Best Foreign Film against some tough competition, like Pan's Labyrinth and the heartbreaking Water. This political thriller follows a high-profile couple in 1984 East Berlin whose lives come under the scrutiny of the German Stasi. The secret service agent watching the couple starts to become dangerously involved in their lives. The DVD offers all sorts of subtitle options, deleted scenes, a making-of segment and an interview with director Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck.

"Trapped in the Closet" — Chapters 13-22
Okay, this one's for all of you who staunchly (or embarrassedly) defended this show to me recently. Chapters 13-22 are now available for ownership on DVD so you can follow closely along as the R. Kelly-led musical drama continues. Essentially there's only one extra feature, however: "Trapped Behind the Scenes — a sneak peek from the set."

Just saw Lives of Others yesterday and thought it was exceptional. The filming is brilliant and the acting superb. At first I was disappointed that Pan's didn't win for best foreign film; now I see why. Lives of Others is well deserving of the win.

The judge in the upcoming child pornography trial of R. Kelly today upheld his earlier ruling to allow the media and public to view a videotape that allegedly shows the R&B singer having sex with a minor. He's innocent until proven guilty, I know, I know -- but I think R. Kelly is disgusting. I'd never promote or buy anything that he's connected with.
