A potential former Oscar contender and a horror sequel flop headline this week's DVD releases. Clint Eastwood's "Flags of Our Fathers" was at one point heralded as the frontrunner for this year's Oscar's and received its share of praise after its release, but it has since been vastly overshadowed by other releases, especially its companion piece "Letters from Iwo Jima," which is a nominee. "Flags of Our Fathers" seems like a perfect DVD rental, especially with "Letters from Iwo Jima" playing in theaters right now.

"The Grudge 2" ended up being a tremendous box-office failure. The first film in the franchise grossed well over $100 million. After a solid $20 million opening weekend, the sequel failed to even double that amount throughout its entire theatrical run. Perhaps an Unrated Director's Cut will entice some new viewers on DVD.

"Running with Scissors" was at one point looking like a fun, dysfunctional dark comedy, but the film suffered from a lot of negative reviews upon its release, losing credibility for the awards season. The movie touches upon some deeply disturbing themes, however, which may be best left for the comforts of your own home anyway.

"Hollywoodland," which explores the mystery behind the suicide of former TV star and "Superman" actor George Reeves, turned out to be a very engaging thriller. The biggest surprise of all was Ben Affleck's quietly impressive suporting turn. Notice, however, how little was heard of it in comparison to all of his disasters that caused front-page headlines.

Michel Gondry's whimsical and wonderful fantasy comedy "The Science of Sleep" is bound to find a lot of fans after the DVD hits stores. The surreal ode to dreaming stars Gael García Bernal as a young man who escapes from the frustrations he finds in real life by creating an entire dream world he can control.

Other new releases include "Flicka" and "Trust the Man." If you are looking for interesting re-releases then a brand-spanking-new edition (a Music Edition, in fact) of the modern retelling of a Shakespearian classic, "Romeo + Juliet," might be the perfect thing for the upcoming Valentine's Day. The film stars a much younger Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. For the fellas, several James Bond flicks are getting yet another DVD upgrade today.

For those that cannot get enough television, you will probably enjoy the following releases:
Baywatch – Season 3
Charmed – The Complete Seventh Season
Mad About You – The Complete Third Season
