DVD Verdict reviews: THE SIMPSONS: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON and more!
 
Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of CRASH (2004), GHOSTBUSTERS I AND II
(DOUBLE FEATURE GIFTSET), KUNG FU HUSTLE, LE NOTTI BIANCHE: CRITERION
COLLECTION, MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION, THE SIMPSONS: THE COMPLETE SIXTH
SEASON, 3-IRON, THE TRANSPORTER: SPECIAL DELIVERY EDITION, and THE
TRUMAN SHOW: SPECIAL EDITION:


CRASH (2004) (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 96/100):
"Quite often we feel like we live in an enlightened age where we should
stop being so sensitive to each other's words and perhaps give up being
so politically correct. The truth is we still have a long way to go.
Racism runs rampant in America, it's just a lot less formal now. Crash
will challenge you. It'll make you laugh, cry, and think a lot about how
you react to others. What a shame that it took five years to get made."

GHOSTBUSTERS I AND II (DOUBLE FEATURE GIFTSET) (reviewed by David
Johnson, overall score 86/100):
"If you already own the previous Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2
releases, there isn't anything mind-blowingly compelling on this new
release to make you ditch the old ones and fork over the bones for this
set. However, if you don't own the films and have been thinking about
making a purchase, these discs are your best bet."

KUNG FU HUSTLE (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 96/100):
"Nothing here is to be taken seriously, and that's not a problem. The
abundance of exaggeration gives the movie a fresh and invigorating ebb
and flow, and I ended up having a fantastic time watching this goofy
story unfold."

LE NOTTI BIANCHE: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 91/100):
"Like an elegy to the emotion it best exemplifies, Le Notti Bianche is a
tender, bittersweet slice of unbridled radiance, an ode to the concept
of the instant connection, and a prayer for a preference of the present
over the past."

MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 84/100):
"The comedy can be crude, made up of insults and outright attacks, and
every emotion is set at simmer, just waiting for the proper cue to boil
over. Still, Perry's exceptional company, as well as his own
freewheeling turn as Madea, makes this hokum hard to hate."

THE SIMPSONS: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON (reviewed by Ryan Keefer,
overall score 93/100):
"At the end of the day, however, The Simpsons second squad beats a lot
of other shows' starters, so to speak."

3-IRON (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 90/100):
"Ambiguous and thought-provoking, 3-Iron is one of those films that some
people will love and others will find dull and pointless. Few will deny
that it's one of the most unique films in recent memory, though, as Kim
Ki-duk has once again taken a simple premise and turned it into a deep,
challenging work."

THE TRANSPORTER: SPECIAL DELIVERY EDITION (reviewed by Eric Profancik,
overall score 82/100):
"I enjoyed The Transporter. It's not an especially innovative or
inventive film, but it mixes in something new every now and then in its
numerous action scenes. If you need a quick action fix, this one isn't a
bad choice. Jason Statham is a refreshing breath of fresh air in the
action world. He looks like he really could be a rough and tumble
transporter, and that whiff of believability is all you need to keep on
watching."

THE TRUMAN SHOW: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
score 95/100):
"It is a great film, and this DVD does justice to Weir's entertaining
and slightly chilling view of the media and the world."
