Picks and Pans Review: New on DVD

Munich ($39.98) What price vengeance? Steven Spielberg examines the soul-crushing toll on a hit squad (led by Eric Bana) avenging the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics. Unnerving and unforgettable. Extras: The two-disc collector's edition chronicles the filmmakers' behind-the-scenes work in substantial featurettes, but sadly, Spielberg does not contribute a commentary.

The Poseidon Adventure ($19.98)
If the upcoming remake tempts you to catch this '72 disaster flick about a flipped-over cruise ship, don't bother. The over-the-top acting and soggy script have grown even more moldy with age. Extras: The documentaries are intriguing, but a cast commentary is ridiculously self-congratulatory.

Rumor Has It ($28.98)
What's funny about a woman (Jennifer Aniston) who sleeps with a guy (Kevin Costner) who already bedded her mom and grandmother (allegedly inspiring The Graduate), and might actually be her biological dad? Absolutely nothing. Extras: One measly trailer. Guess Aniston and the filmmakers opted to cut their losses.
