Today's New on DVD- 4/6/10

Bad Lieutenant- Port of Call New Orleans: Werner Herzog's batshit crazy cop thriller is darkly funny, strangely intoxicating, and just plan weird--no small thanks to Nicolas Cage, doing the kind of hot-wired performance that reminds us why we all used to like Nicolas Cage.

The Natural (Blu-ray): I'd honestly forgotten, until I saw it again on Blu for this review, how much I genuinely loved Barry Levinson's 1984 baseball picture. I know, purists, I know, they changed the ending and negated the entire point, etc. Still-- movie pretty!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Blu-ray): Who's got two thumbs and barely even made it through the first Lord of the Rings movie? This guy! (For what it's worth, DVD Talk's Thomas Spurlin gives the set high marks.)
