This Week's Interesting DVD Releases (April 20, 2010)

Avatar is the blockbuster DVD release this week, and it will be interesting how James Cameron's 3-D theater experience translates to the small screen.

Otner theatrical releases out this week on DVD include Jeff Bridges' Academy Award-winning performance in Crazy Heart, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones (which adapts Alice sebold's novel of the same name), and Cloud 9, a critically-acclaimed German film.

Two new Criterion Collection films are in stores tomorrow, Olivier Assayas's Summer Hours and Jean-Luc Godard's Vivre sa vie.

Pressure Cooker is an interesting documentary about an inspirational Philadelphia high school teacher/chef that follows her class for a school year.

Several Batman movies are released this week on Blu-ray, as are The Basketball Diaries and Minority Report.

Television releases this week are mostly repackaged TV seasons, but I do plan to rent the first season of the BBC's Merlin.

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