SENIOR SCREAMS (VOLUME 4), GODZILLA: MONSTER EDITION, NATURAL CITY, REEL
PARADISE, UNO BIANCA, and VOYAGES:
CLAIRE DOLAN (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 85/100):
"It seemed to have the same ugly mix of wooden acting and tawdry sex one
can dial up during late night and early morning hours on Cinemax. But a
funny thing happened. Claire Dolan began to grow on me. Its flat affect
was intentional, the performances of its actors excellent."

A FATHER... A SON... ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD (reviewed by Ryan
Keefer, overall score 80/100):
"I found this to be quite an interesting look at one of Hollywood's
first families, and well worth viewing when HBO airs it 46 times over
the next two weeks."

GENDERNAUTS (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 92/100):
"You could almost rename the movie 'Gender-Nots,' because these people
seek to obliterate (or at least blur) the line between masculine and

GHOST STORIES SEMESTER 4: SENIOR SCREAMS (VOLUME 4) (reviewed by Brett
Cullum, overall score 92/100):
"The latest volume of Ghost Stories says 'screw all that reverent
original language crap,' and lets voice actors run rampant behind the
microphone. The cast gets the basic plot in there somehow, but they
pepper everything with their own unique brand of ad libs that skewer pop
culture, anime, movies, race, religion, and anything else their sick
little minds can fixate on."

GODZILLA: MONSTER EDITION (reviewed by David Ryan, overall score
"Anyhow, to summarize: French nuclear testing bad; aggressive news

NATURAL CITY (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 80/100):
"Tossed in for good measure is way too much MTV-style editing where you
really can't follow the action unless you're twelve and hopped-up on
sugar. If directors and editors would just stop embracing this imbecilic
type of storytelling and return to the 'old days' of slow, played-out
sequences, then we might enjoy the scenes more. If we were able to see
what was going on instead of just getting impressions of action, life
would be better."

REEL PARADISE (reviewed by Jennifer Malkowski, overall score 78/100):
"With funding from friends such as Kevin Smith, Pierson took over the
defunct 180 Meridian Cinema and paid the expenses of showing current
American and Indian films without charging any admission to the mostly
impoverished locals. Interestingly, this lifelong promoter of
independent cinema mostly shows mainstream blockbuster fare like X-Men
2, Bringing Down the House, and The Hot Chick, with films like Bend it
Like Beckham and Rabbit-Proof Fence mixed in here and there."

UNO BIANCA (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 79/100):
"Soavi's dynamic visuals and his flair for placing his characters in
undeniably suspenseful situations will keep you riveted throughout the
lengthy, three-hour running time."

VOYAGES (reviewed by Kerry Birmingham, overall score 83/100):
"Finkiel should be commended for cutting through the melodrama that
seems to spring naturally from Holocaust narratives (understandable,
certainly), but the resulting film will likely put off those interested
in the subject matter and those unwilling to abide its glacial pace."
