Tuesday's New DVD Releases

Here are the DVD releases for next Tuesday, 7 February 2012:

Anonymous
Was Shakespeare a fraud? Who really wrote about cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne? Set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I, and the Essex Rebellion against her, intrigue and suspense advance the theory that it was really Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford who penned Shakespeare's plays.

Billy the Kid
A fascinating look at the myth and the man behind it, who, in just a few short years, transformed himself from a skinny orphan boy to the most feared man in the west and an enduring western icon.

Downton Abbey
Season two returns as the Great War rages across Europe, and not even the serene Yorkshire countryside is free from its effects. The men and women of Downton are doing their part both on the front lines and the home front, but the intensity of war only serves to inflame the more familiar passions of love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal.

Far from the madding crowd
Uncertain of her future but unwilling to sacrifice her freedom, Bathsheba rejects the proposal of Gabriel Oak only to become his employer. Still in love, Gabriel can only watch as Bathsheba flirts with her neighbor, Mr. Boldwood unleashing a passionate obsession within the reserved Boldwood. Both men forsake their hearts, however, upon the arrival of the dashing soldier Frank Troy. Despite being in love with another woman himself, Troy sees a challenge in Bathsheba and sets out to win her.

Geek Charming
When Dylan Schoenfield, Woodlands Academy's top girl, accidentally drops her expensive 'it' handbag into the mall fountain, she is surprised that film geek Josh Rosen retrieves it for her. In exchange for rescuing her bag, Dylan must agree to be the subject of Josh's documentary film. Dylan hopes the film will help her campaign for Blossom Queen; she claims that winning is her only life goal.

Lost Gold of the Dark Ages
With exclusive access to one of the most important discoveries of modern times, National Geographic uncovers the secrets of the largest hoard of Saxon Gold ever found. Lost Gold of the Dark Ages chronicles the story of an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast who discovered a gold hoard dating back a millennium and valued at over $5 million. Also includes Secrets of the Lost Gold: a fascinating quest to reveal the hidden secrets of the 3,500 piece treasure hoard.

Octubre
Clemente is a moneylender and man of few words. Sofia is his new single neighbor. She is devoted to the October worship of Our Lord of the Miracles and hopes that Clemente may be the one for her. The two are brought together over Clemente's newborn baby, whose mother is a prostitute and nowhere to be found. While Clemente looks for her, Sofia cares for the baby. With these two new people in his life, Clemente has the opportunity to reconsider his emotional relations with people.

3D Spies of WWII - Destroying Hitler's....

During World War II, Hitler's scientists developed terrifying new weapons of mass destruction. Allied intelligence pored over millions of air photos shot over German territory by specially converted, high-flying Spitfires. With 3D graphics that recreate exactly what the photo spies saw, NOVA tells the suspenseful, previously untold story of air photo intelligence that played a vital role in defeating Hitler.

The Big Year

Looking to shake up their routine lives, three amateur bird watchers compete to become the ultimate 'birder' by spotting the greatest number of species within a single calendar year. But the friendly rivalry soon turns into a hilariously complicated cross-country adventure as each man begins to realize that the quest for success comes at a price, and that's not chicken feed!

Bombing Hitler's Dams

In 1943 a squadron of Lancaster bombers staged one of the most audacious raids in history, destroying two gigantic dams in Germany's industrial heartland with a revolutionary bouncing bomb invented by British engineer Barnes Wallis. Now, NOVA re-creates the extreme engineering challenges faced by Wallis and the pilots.

A thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.

The Dream House

Will Atenton quit a high-profile job in Manhattan to relocate his wife, Libby, and their two daughters to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was once the murder scene of a mother and her children. When Will investigates, he's not sure if he's seeing ghosts or if the tragic events are somehow related to his past. The only clues come from his mysterious neighbor

Drive

Driver is a Hollywood stunt driver by day, and moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver for hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA's most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene. When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best, Drive!

The Hammer

Inspired by the life of deaf UFC fighter Matt Hamill, The Hammer tells the story of what it takes to be a champion, on and off the mat. Raised among those with the ability to hear, Matt later finds himself no less an outsider among the deaf community. But through sheer determination, he uses his 'perceived' disability as an asset, and becomes not only the first deaf wrestler to win a National Collegiate Championship, but an inspirational force to both hearing and deaf alike.

In Time

In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage, a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.

Janie Jones

Ethan, a struggling rock musician content with his on-the-road party lifestyle, has his life turned upside down by the arrival of a thirteen-year-old daughter he never knew he had.

In 1494, Christopher Columbus made a second journey to the Americas with more ships, more men, and a grander mission. His goal: to build the first European colony in the New World. But in just a few short years, his settlement would perish: one-fifth of its inhabitants dead, at least six ships sunk in the bay, and the legacy of Columbus permanently marred. What happened at the ill-fated settlement remains a mystery 500 years later.

Inspired by true events, this tense and haunting thriller follows Detective Souder, a homicide detective in a small Texan town, and his partner, transplanted New York City cop Detective Heigh, as they track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims' mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call 'The Killing Fields.' Despite his partner's warnings, Detective Heigh sets out to investigate the crimes.

When paleontologist Kate Lloyd travels to an isolated outpost in Antarctica for the expedition of a lifetime, she joins an international team that unearths a remarkable discovery. Their elation quickly turns to fear as they realize that their experiment has freed a mysterious being from its frozen prison.
