This week, one of the most beloved docs of 2006 makes its bow on DVD. 

Stranger Than Fiction

Will Ferrell proves he has the Jim Carrey gene in this first big budget departure from the Frat Pack, toning down the wacky and putting in an affecting performance. Screenwriter Zach Helm proves he has the Charlie Kaufman gene, if not so bleak. And director Marc Forster proves that Stay will not keep him down. Loads of featurettes in the extras. 

A Good Year

Usually when you get Ridley Scott involved in a project, you're talking about Blade Runner, Alien, Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, or Matchstick Men; and that's without even looking at IMDb. If it's Russell Crowe, you're talking The Insider, Proof, Romper Stomper, A Beautiful Mind, Master and Commander, or Cinderella Man. But sometimes you're talking about 1492: Conquest of Paradise and sometimes you're talking about Virtuosity. Extras include Scott commentary. 

Tenacious D in the Pick of Desinty

Although this didn't get glowing reviews, it's kind of hard to turn down the D. Commentary by both Jack Black and Kyle Gass should make for a nice bonus.   

The Heart of the Game

Completely ignored come kudos season, but no doc last year inspired as much devotion in people I've spoken to who've seen it. Don't let the apparent similarity to Hoop Dreams fool you. This is on a whole different trip. Extras include commentary, deleted scenes, a making-of doc and interviews with, among others, Ludacris, who narrates the film.

The Return

The only measurable difference between this and The Grudge is that The Grudge actually made money. Otherwise you've still got Sarah Michelle Gellar fighting the paranormal past. In Texas instead of Japan. I'll give it that one, too. Extras include an alternate ending, deleted scenes, and a making-of featurette.

In this week's long list: Which Land Before Time are we up to? No peeking!
