LES MATINS DU MONDE, TRAINING DAY (HD DVD), and UNFORGIVEN (HD DVD):
BAD DREAMS (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 96/100):
"If you're expecting a classic of '80s horror, there's a reason why Bad
Dreams is not on the tip of your tongue. But if you want to recapture
the illicit thrill of sprawling out on the pile carpet in front of the
TV in the rec room, watching R movies while your friend's parents sleep
in blissful ignorance, Bad Dreams is the ticket."

DAZED AND CONFUSED: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Brendan Babish,
overall score 94/100):
"Dazed and Confused gets nearly everything right. Not just the obvious
facts of youth: old kids bully younger ones; teenagers resent authority;
alcohol is a necessity for all gatherings. This is the easy stuff. But
Dazed and Confused nails the minutiae of teenage ennui."

THE PRODUCERS (2005) (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 70/100):
"I loved the musical, so I of course bought the soundtrack, watched the
original movie, and eagerly awaited this version of the story. I should
have skipped that last one."

SCRUBS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
"In the third season, there is a noticeable shift towards a more
humorous, lighter style of writing, with more abstract jokes and
buffoonery. This has two effects: it makes the show much more hilarious
to watch, and when the dramatic episodes do emerge, they hit even
harder, amplified by the contrast."

SHOOTING LIVIEN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 83/100):
"My disappointments come from limitations of the concept, not the talent
and effort that went into making the film."

STAR TREK: FAN COLLECTIVE: TIME TRAVEL (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
"The original series tried to create an aesthetic experience first
and layered its intellectual inquiries inside that (at least in the
better episodes). Time travel was an excuse for Kirk and company to
get in trouble. 'Cause and Effect' has all the adventure of doing a

TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score
" Sainte-Colombe is a bundle of raw but sublimated emotions. Marielle's
use of his body is exquisite, his movements slow and deliberate as if
every moment of his existence requires effort. Stripped of histrionics
and sentimentality, Marielle's performance is surprisingly powerful,
giving viewers a full sense of the weight of the man's sorrow."

TRAINING DAY (HD DVD) (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 84/100):
"The image is razor sharp, and although it does not exhibit as much
depth as other HD-DVDs, it doesn't have to. All the action is between
the leads, so get used to their facial hair and pore structure (did I
just say that?)."

UNFORGIVEN (HD DVD) (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 95/100):
"The film is an excellent look at a man's past, and that as much as he
tries to run away from it, it's always around the corner, ready to stare
him in the face."
