DVD of the Week: Tyson

Iron Mike Tyson enters the ring again, this time in a fascinating, thought-provoking documentary directed by longtime friend and filmmaker James Toback, who allows the crown-winning boxer to tell his story with unfettered honesty, humor and charm. Yes, it's onesided (folks like Don King and ex-wife Robin Givens aren't invited to rebut the boxer's accusations), and you get the sense the Maori-tattooed boxer is trying to right some wrongs from years ago, but it's entertaining nonetheless. Toback filmed some 50 hours of footage and incorporates footage of Tyson's milestone matches.
 

Plus...

The Last House on the Left Surprisingly well-acted rape-revenge horror film that's probably better than it has any right to be, and tones down some of the original's grindhouse sexploitation.

Hannah Montana: The Movie Miley Cyrus returns to the screen; this time, the young superstar has been sent home to the family farm in Tennessee to get back to her roots, before returning to help a small town escape an evil developer. It includes 12 new songs.
