New DVD Day: 5/22/07

Hey, I'm ripping off my own self! New DVD Day, a total thievery of New Movie Day, will pop up every Tuesday to talk about new DVD releases.

Amidst all of the controversy surrounding Mel Gibson's booze-fueled, Jew-bashing rant, I think there was a little movie he opened too, and now it's on DVD.

Clint Eastwood's excellent drama about the Japanese side of the Iwo Jima conflict during World War II gets the two-disc special edition treatment. It's also available in a boxset with Clint's American point of view flick Flags of Our Fathers, and while Letters is the better, more celebrated film, both are definitely worth seeing.

A documentary on the late, great racing horse Barbaro.

Steven Soderbergh's unsung 40's-esque political drama didn't do much for critics or ticket buyers, but when I went to rent it at Blockbuster today, it was all checked out.

Legendary actor Peter O'Toole got an Oscar nomination for this mixed-age romance film.

This adaptation of the first novel in the popular kid-lit series honestly looks like it has nothing going for it.

I've never seen this and it's already one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
