This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (October 27th, 2009)

The magical combination of Woody Allen directing Larry David in Whatever Works puts the film at the top of this week's DVD release list (and my own rental queue).

The feature-length Battlestar Galactica: The Plan is also in stores tomorrow.

Monty Python fans can enjoy the group's reunion, Monty Python: Almost The Truth, along with The Best of Monty Python and Monty Python: The Other British Invasion.

A trio of documentaries caught my eye among the week's releases. You Weren't There: A History of Chicago Punk 1977-84 captures the emergence of punk rock in the Windy City, Chanel, Chanel profiles designer Coco Chanel, and Lioness examines the roles of women soldiers in the U.S. military.

Beef up your Blu-ray library with the 15th anniversary edition of Stargate.
