Kind of a light week, but there seems to be just a little something for everyone this Tuesday: A classic piece of stand-up comedy, the first of two war films from Clint Eastwood, a family-friendly remake of an equine classic, yet another sequel to yet another J-horror remake, a Tara Reid horror movie that went straight-to-download, a noir-esque period piece mystery and an indie comedy about the dangers of wandering eyes.

Eddie Murphy: Delirious -- OK, so it debuted on HBO and not in theaters, but it's still one of the most drop-dead hilarious comedy concerts I've ever seen. Folks of my approximate generation still use phrases from this concert in everyday conversation! Most definitely NOT the Eddie Murphy you know from Dr. Dolittle, The Nutty Professor and Daddy Day Care, but a really, really funny Eddie Murphy. Remember that guy? I sure do. Extras include a pair of deleted scenes and a 40-minute interview between Byron Allen and the normally reclusive Mr. Murphy.

Flags of Our Fathers -- The first of Clint Eastwood's two WWII stories (the second one being Letters from Iwo Jima) is told from the American perspective. Critical consensus indicates that the second film is actually quite a bit more successful -- but it'd take a lot to keep me away from a new Clint Eastwood film, let alone two. Far as I can tell there are no extras whatsoever included on this DVD, which makes me think there'll be a big, swanky 2-disc edition somewhere down the line.

Flicka -- Alison Lohman, Maria Bello and Tim McGraw star in this cuddly sweet adaptation of the old-school "girl and a horse" story. Haven't seen it, have no real plans to, sorry. Extras include a behind-the-scenes featurette, three deleted scenes, a gag reel and one of Mr. McGraw''s music videos.
