Tuesday's New DVD Releases

Here are the DVD releases for next Tuesday, 5 June 2012:

Act of Valor

Pulse-pounding combat sequences, cutting-edge battlefield technology and raw emotion fuel this unprecedented blend of real-world heroism and original filmmaking, a thrilling tribute to the skills, courage and tenacity of the world's most revered warriors.
American Pickers - Volume Three
In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled pickers Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In American Pickers: Volume 3 Mike and Frank explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow Danielle to get in on the action.
Breaking Bad - The complete 4th season
In season four, Walt and Skyler try to use gambling to explain how Walt has made all of his money; Skyler tries to launder money through a car wash; Hank's discovery of Gus Fring's fingerprint in Gale Boetticher's apartment is enough for DEA and Albuquerque PD to bring Gus in for an interview; and much more.
Brew Masters

The fourth season, a groundbreaking, comprehensive visual exploration of the history, vitality, and cultural significance of America's craft movement. Threads explores the needle arts, including storytelling through quilts and textiles that speak to the creativity of the human spirit. Through the stories of four special artists, we will experience the drama and revelations art can bring to our lives.
Curb your enthusiasm - complete season 8
The series proves how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life, a trip to the grocery store, a remark at a dinner party, a fender-bender, can precipitate a 'Murphy's Law' chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, Curb is shot without a script; cast members are given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go.
Doc Martin - Series 5
Martin Clunes is back as the surly, self-centered Dr. Martin Ellingham. In the fifth series, the doctor plots his escape from the idyllic town of Portwenn and its idiosyncratic residents.
Falling Skies - Complete first season
Chronicles the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that leaves most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, survivors band together to begin the difficult task of fighting back against the aggressive aliens. Outside of Boston, history professor Tom Mason helps lead a small army named 2nd Massachusetts in the battle of their lives to preserve their families and what's left of mankind.
Ghost Rider - Spirit of Vengeance
Johnny Blaze is still struggling with his curse as the devil's bounty hunter. However, he may risk everything as he teams up with the leader of a group of rebel monks to save a young boy from the devil, and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.
How to live forever
A cell lives an average of 5 minutes. A hummingbird for 5 years. Right now, humans live for about 75 years. What might it mean to live forever? Director Mark Wexler embarks on a worldwide trek to investigate just what it means to grow old and what it could mean to really live forever. Documents his journey as he seeks to learn if eternal life is possible or even desirable. Exploring these issues with a fascinating array of people.
The Layover
When celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain travels around the globe, he doesn't spend his layover at the airport or hotel. Instead he explores the city he is in and makes the most of the short amount of time he has there. With The Layover, he shows viewers some of his favorite places in the U.S., Asia, and Europe while sharing tips and expertise that he has gathered as an experienced traveler.
Pawn Stars Volume Four
There is no better example of today's pawnbrokers than the Harrison family's Gold and Silver Pawn shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas - the modern day Mecca for people in need of quick cash. Three generations of Harrison men clash with friendly camaraderie over items from classic cars to samurai swords. Here, everything has a history, and everything has a price. And you never know what's going to walk through the door for the Harrisons to haggle over - like Colonel Sanders suit, a competition dragster racecar and an Abraham Lincoln campaign ribbon.
Pretty Little Liars - Complete season 2
The drama continues as season two begins moments after the explosive season one finale. The girls are the talk of the town -- and not in a good way. Whoever said that change is good has never visited Rosewood, PA ... or come across four pretty little liars.
Safe House
Tobin Frost, one of the CIA's most dangerous traitors, resurfaces in South Africa after eluding capture for almost a decade. During his interrogation, the safe house he's being held in is attacked by brutal mercenaries, forcing rookie agent Matt Weston to take the infamous Frost on the run. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant protege, shaking the young operative's morality and idealism, the unlikely allies must fight to stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.
Tomboy
Laure is 10 years old and a tomboy. On arrival in a new neighborhood, she lets Lisa and her crowd believe that she is a boy. Summer becomes a big playground and Laure pretends to be Michael, a boy like the others, different enough to get the attention of Lisa, who falls in love with him. Laure takes advantage of her new identity as if the end of the summer would never reveal her unsettling secret.
The biggest matches in ECW history
ECW started as a small, Philadelphia-based local wrestling company, but rapidly became a sensation that built a passionate fan base and influenced both WCW and WWE permanently. Extreme Championship Wrestling was known for its intense matches, fan interaction, and introducing a number of future superstars to the general public.

As Ottway leads the injured survivors through the brutal snow and ice, they are relentlessly tracked by a vicious pack of rogue wolves that will do anything to defend their territory.
