Brand new on Digital Versatile Disc today are a pair of Golden Globe nominees for Best Picture – Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds in the Drama category, and The Hangover in the Musical or Comedy section. There’s also The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, G-Force and Taking Woodstock, also on Comcast On Demand today.


Inglourious Basterds
Quentin Tarantino’s wildly inventive retelling of World War II stars Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine, a hardass Tennessee soldier leading a squad of hardass Jewish troops on a campaign of fear and terror throughout the Nazi army, while Christoph Waltz’s distressingly charismatic sleuth Col. Landa spearheads the hunt for an escaped Jewish woman (Melanie Laurent) running a movie theater in France while masquerading as a Gentile.


The Hangover
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are three guys who wake up in a trashed hotel suite in Las Vegas after an insane bachelor party that none of them can remember, and when they realize they have no idea where the groom-to-be is, they struggle hilariously to piece together what the hell happened the night before that led to them having a tiger in their bathroom and one of them being married to Heather Graham.


The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
Jeremy Piven stars in this crazy comedy as Don Ready, a stellar salesman who’s tasked with saving a failing car dealership in Temecula, CA from going bankrupt, and although everything he touches turns to gold, things start to change when he starts to go after his last shot at true love. Also starring Ed Helms, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, Jordana Spiro, Rob Riggle, Craig Robinson, Wendie Malick, Alan Thicke and James Brolin.


G-Force
There is a secret squad of super-spy guinea pigs who have to save the world from evil.


Taking Woodstock
Demetri Martin stars as a struggling resort owner who stumbles his way into hosting the biggest and most influential musical concert event of the 20th century. Also starring Imelda Staunton, Eugene Levy, Liev Schreiber, Dan Fogler, Paul Dano, Kelli Garner and Emile Hirsch.
