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.

Grindhouse: Death Proof
Quentin Tarantino's and Robert Rodriguez's double-feature Grindhouse movies, Planet Terror and Death Proof, will be released on separate DVDs, so today's release is just the Tarantino-helmed Death Proof. As a movie, Death Proof is difficult to categorize. It's sort of tribute to stunt-people, and much the way that Kill Bill took the martial arts movie and Tarantinofied it, Death Proof gathers inspiration from car-chase films and horror flicks to invent what feels like an entirely new genre.

The story follows a serial killer who uses his car as a killing machine, but he soon chooses the wrong pack of badass ladies to terrorize on the road. Check out my review for more of my thoughts on both of the Grindhouse features.

The Death Proof "extended and unrated" DVD includes several extra features, including the "missing reel" of Vanessa Ferlito's unseen lap-dance sequence, "Finding Quentin's Gals" featurette, "The Guys of Death Proof" featurette, and "Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike" featurette.

One more interesting new release today, so

"Family Guy" — Volume 5
Well, "Family Guy" fans, if the Stewie-and-Brian Emmys "performance" made you crazy to watch more of the cartoon Rhode Island family, today's your lucky day. Volume 5 of the Fox series promises more of what fans have come to expect: bumbling Peter saying things nobody should be saying, Lois trying to put up with him, Brian the dog offering the voice of reason, everyone hating on Meg and underestimating Chris, and of course, Stewie madly planning to rule the world and off his mother.

This three-disc set includes many special features, such as a ton of deleted scenes, commentary options, a featurette called "Drawing Peter" and a "Freakin' Sweet Promo."

Death Proof is absolutely the superior of the two grindhouse movies, but i will absolutely be buying planet terror when it comes out. I bought Death Proof yesterday, the steel book with the extra disc from Best Buy, its great, tons of extra features, and the extended cut definately adds to the story, it also came with a 5 dollars off coupon for Planet Terror.

Ugh, I don't need an extended cut of Death Proof; the original dragged on long enough. Planet Terror was the better half of Grindhouse.

Death Proof!!! Wee!!! it's sad, but I know I'm buying Death Proof....I'll buy Planet Terror, and when the Weinsteins realize that there's money to be made and they release a dvd with the theatrical versions of both, I'll buy that too... Anyways, does anyone know when Planet Terror comes out?
