This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (January 12th, 2010)

I am always excited about the Criterion Collection DVDs. The Blu-ray release of the Fellini classic 8 1/2, which contains several documentaries about the film and Fellini as well as interviews with the cast, is at the top of my shopping list.

The Iraq war movie The Hurt Locker was one of last year's most impressive theatrical releases, a film I cannot recommend highly enough. The drama Passing Strange and the political comedy In the Loop are at the top of my rental queue. The Patton Oswalt film Big Fan also hits store shelves tomorrow.

The twentieth season of The Simpsons is in stores tomorrow, along with other television series including ER: The Complete Twelfth Season, Becker: The Third Season, and seasons 11 and 12 of Top Gear.

What new releases are you picking up or adding to your Netflix queue this week?
