What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

Tuesday means that new DVD releases hit up Netflix, so I've checked out the offerings to let you know which movies deserve a spot on your queue.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Though last year's Transformers was a fun surprise hit, I thought this Summer's sequel failed to deliver the same laughs or thrills. Reprising their roles are leading-man-in-training Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox as long-distance couple Sam and Mikaela when Sam goes off to college, only to be followed by his robot-taming legacy.

It's Decepticons vs. the Autobots again, and many things blow up — but I'd rent this only if you're a fan of thin plots, deafening explosions, and Megan Fox's body parts.


The special features include a behind-the-scenes feature chronicling the making of the film with cast interviews and a retrospective of the Transformers toys to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

Michelle Pfeiffer stars as a courtesan and older lover of Rupert Friend in the romantic drama Chéri. Set in the 1920s (before the term "cougar" was coined and it was just known as awesome), the movie mostly focuses on Friend's character after his relationship with Pfeiffer is over, who "educated him in the ways of love." Yowza. Stephen Frears directs (who also directed Pfeiffer in the classic Dangerous Liaisons), and Kathy Bates has a role as Friend's meddling mother. The DVD includes deleted scenes and a making-of featurette.


Saturday Night Live: The Best of Amy Poehler

SNL's been a pretty bleak place this season, and I partially blame the exits of Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Fortunately, this DVD of Amy's best moments on the show comes out today, and I for one can't wait to cue it up to see her impersonating the likes of Dakota Fanning and Nancy Grace. There are also skits with my favorite Poehler characters, the one-legged, flatulent Amber, Bronx Beat's Betty Caruso, along with a highlight reel of her best Weekend Update moments. Also, it must be noted that this Best of DVD is one of the few devoted to a former female cast member; only Gilda Radner, Molly Shannon, and Cheri Oteri share the honor.
