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.

Transformers
The summer's loud, raucus, action-packed robot movie is finally available for consumption on DVD, complete with all the special feature trimmings. In addition to the story of the Autobots vs. the Decepticons, the DVD boasts such extras as a featurette in which Steven Spielberg discusses his love for the franchise, a peek into how the actors were selected for their roles, a look at the military training Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson endured for their roles, a full exploration of how the film came to fruition from initial storyboards to special effects, and much, much more.

A few more new titles to add to your queue, so

The Hoax
This DVD is one of my October must-have items because it's one of the smartest, most absorbing movies of the year. Richard Gere plays author Clifford Irving whose false biography of the mysterious Howard Hughes is eagerly believed by his publishers — at first. But soon the weight of having to keep up his charade starts to get the best of Irving. Based on a true story and directed by Lasse Hallstrom, the movie is at times sad or funny, and always riveting.

A Mighty Heart
This film is very thoughtful, respectful and superbly done, but it will also rip out your heart and throw it into a meat grinder. Angelina Jolie turns in a heart-wrenching performance as Mariane Pearl whose journalist husband goes missing in Pakistan in 2002. She soon learns that he has been kidnapped by terrorists and she enters a long, grueling process of chasing down fruitless leads and dealing with infuriating red tape. This is not an easy movie to watch, but it is also an inspiring story of one woman's strength.

Planet Terror
Now, several weeks later, we have the second of the Grindhouse features on DVD. Planet Terror finds Rose McGowan with a gun for a leg, battling crazy zombies. Special features of the 2-disc set include audio commentary by Robert Rodriguez, a peek at how McGowan's leg-gun was fashioned on a low budget, something called "The Badass Babes of Planet Terror," and a featurette about the stunts in the film, among others. Oh, and you also have the option to watch the movie with the "Audience Screening Track."

Planet Terror was SO much better than Death Proof- I'm glad they were released separately! Also- Freddy Rodriguez is HOT in Planet Terror :)

Ohhh, the Hoax! I want to see that one. I saw Transformers in the theatre, and I was so-so on it, just because I'm not really A Transformer fan, thank goodness for Shia in that! :) The other two, I might watch, well, I will watch Planet Terror, but its not like I'm dying, more curiousity then anything.
