BOOMERANG (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall score 89/100):
"As you watch Boomerang, consider how many times you've seen ads from
prosecutors touting their conviction records. Then consider how many
times you've stared, fascinated, at some shocking crime story on the
local news or been titillated by crime footage on CNN, MSNBC, or Fox
News, convicting the suspects in your mind without a second thought."

GAY SEX IN THE '70S (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 80/100):
"Imagine rampant sex on the streets, in parks, in trucks, in doorways,
in any semi-secluded location. That's what was going on in New York, as
homosexuals broke free of the persecution and stigma of their sexual

GHOST STORIES SEMESTER 5: GRADUATION GHOULIES (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
overall score 92/100):
"The gloves are off in this the final volume of Ghost Stories. Previous
releases seemed to get crazier and crazier with more foul language and

JOHN WAYNE-JOHN FORD FILM COLLECTION (reviewed by Joe Armenio, overall
"This is one of the most important collaborations in film history, of
course, although fans will have to decide on their own whether this set
is strictly necessary. The extras are repetitive and a bit bland, and
many of these films are already available."

LIKE MIKE 2: STREETBALL (reviewed by Neal Masri, overall score 80/100):
"I do wonder how many young kids even know to whom the title of the
film refers. If there is a third installment, I suggest the calling it

A NOS AMOURS: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall
"Although the acting is uniformly superior, the film is often talky and
static, perhaps even too overbearing to make an effective statement. But
in its detached exploration of relationships and emotional politics, the
picture delivers challenging, provocative cinema to the receptive mind."

PLUNDER IN THE SUN: SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION (reviewed by James A.
Stewart, overall score 86/100):
"If you think too much about plot holes, you probably will fall into
a few with Plunder of the Sun, but if you let yourself escape into
the story, it's fun, with several strong performances that make it
worth a look."

SARAH SILVERMAN: JESUS IS MAGIC (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall
"Still, for anyone who enjoys a good laugh at the expense of minorities
and the marginalized of American society -- and really, who doesn't? --
this is a must see."

SEX AND THE CELTS (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 60/100):
"Sex and the Celts, the title screams it out in colossal letters. SEX!
Look at the cover. See how the word 'sex' jumps out at you? Did you
happen to notice the blonde vixen and her creamy body enticing you to
come explore...the topic? It's all there waiting to tease and titillate
you. But don't be fooled."
