New DVD Movies from Netflix

Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 5:27 am

There are 26 new DVD movies from Netflix becoming available this week, and we’re talking everything from Jackie Chan in a dramatic role to Leonardo DiCaprio as a U.S. Marshall tracking down a psychopath. As always, I’ve sifted through the available DVD and Blu-ray releases from the world’s leading online rental service and selected the 10 movies (or TV shows) that I feel are most worth your time.

If you’re not a member of Netflix, clicking on this link will quickly solve the problem. We do get a small commission if you decide to join the millions of other satisfied customers, but it doesn’t add to your cost and the money goes right back into our website.

Not the Messiah (2009) – A musical concert version of Monty Python’s The Life of Brian, performed by none other than Python alum Eric Idle. Musical styles include pop, country, Broadway, hip hip, and several others. Rated PG.

Shinjuku Incident (2009) – A Chinese citizen named Steelhead (Jackie Chan in the rare dramatic role) heads to Japan to search for his missing girlfriend. But as he tries to survive the tough streets, he soon learns that his love is now married to a Japanese mobster. Hugely popular in Hong Kong, director Derek Yee opted not to release it in mainland China due to the level of violence. Rated R.

Shutter Island (2010) – In the latest film from director Martin Scorsese, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a U.S. Marshall searching for a missing prisoner at an insane asylum. But his investigation is soon complicated by an uncooperative staff, allegations of mind control experiments on patients, and a series of disturbing hallucinations. Rated R.

Tales of the Gold Monkey: Complete Series (1982) – Stephen Collins is Jake Cutter, a pilot who’ll transport anyone or anything through the South Pacific of 1938. Six discs provide the entire television series, which happens to have a feel very reminiscent of the Indiana Jones movies. Plus, Jake owns an adorable Jack Russell Terrier. Rated NR.

Edge of Darkness (2009) – When his daughter is gunned down in front of him, homicide cop Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) goes looking for answers and revenge. Ray Winstone co-stars. Rated R.

American Experience: My Lai (2010) – In this documentary, an American filmmaker explores the My Lai Massacre, a tragic event during the Vietnam War where U.S. troops gunned down over 300 unarmed citizens, most of whom were women and children. Rated NR.

Coach (2010) – Hugh Dancy stars as a pampered slacker who takes up coaching a youth soccer team. Along the way, he does some growing up, bonds with his star player, and begins a relationship (with the lovely Liane Balaban). Rated PG-13.

From Paris with Love (2009) – Charlie Wax (John Travolta) is an American operative trying to stop a terrorist plot in Paris. James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is the low-level agent assigned to help him. Travolta goes bald for this one, and it’s a mixture of black comedy and over-the-top action. Rated R.

UFC: Rampage Greatest Hits (2010) – Former UFC light heavyweight champ, Quentin “Rampage” Jackson stars as B.A. in the upcoming A-Team movie. Before showbiz called, he battled some of the sport’s toughest competitors, including Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, and Wanderlei Silva. Over two hours of MMA action. Rated NR.

Oceans (2008) – A team, including the grandson of Jacques Cousteau, takes viewers beneath the surface of the ocean to examine its mysteries and beauty. Included on three discs. Rated NR.

lol, Dicaprio kills it in his latest movie. I wish I’d never seen Inception! It’s such a mind bending movie that I think it ruined the chances for me to enjoy any other movie!
