This Week in DVD is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. The categories represent solely the author’s intentions towards the DVDs at hand, and are in no way meant to be a reflection on what he thinks other people should rent or buy. So if he ends up putting a movie you like in the “Skip it” section without having seen it, please keep in mind that the time you could spend leaving a spiteful but ultimately futile comment could instead be used for more pleasant things in life. Like buying DVDs.

WALTZ WITH BASHIR
With its unique animated style and innovative approach to documentary filmmaking, Waltz with Bashir is a fascinating experiment, and one that proves to work very well in connection with the compelling, emotionally powerful subject matter (following one man’s attempts to remember what happened during an Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War). If you’re the type of person who feels the need to watch a documentary more than once, then by all means, this is well worth the purchase, but for everyone else, it makes for an essential one-time viewing.
Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: A director’s commentary, a Q & A with Director Ari Folman, and 2 featurettes (“Surreal Soldiers: Making Waltz with Bashir”, “Building the Scenes – Animatics”).
