Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BOY MEETS BOY: THE COMPLETE FIRST
SEASON, CALL ME MADAM, THE DAME EDNA EXPERIENCE: THE COMPLETE SERIES
ONE, EDDIE PRESLEY: SPECIAL EDITION, FULL FRAME DOCUMENTARY SHORTS
(VOLUME 2), LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, PETER PAN, SAVAGES, and THE
WOLF MAN: THE LEGACY COLLECTION:


BOY MEETS BOY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Michael Stailey,
overall score 70/100):
"Sitting down and watching the series on DVD, I quickly found myself
sickened with the production team's subtle coercion and blatant
disregard for human decency."

CALL ME MADAM (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 84/100):
"Call Me Madam's subject matter seems odd for a Hollywood musical, but
with songs by Irving Berlin and solid performances from all involved, it
turns out to be an entertaining little affair."

THE DAME EDNA EXPERIENCE: THE COMPLETE SERIES ONE (reviewed by Amanda
DeWees, overall score 95/100):
"Vain, sunny of disposition, sweetly ruthless in cutting down rivals for
our attention, and the master -- err, mistress -- of the throwaway put-
down, Dame Edna is unlike anyone else."

EDDIE PRESLEY: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 92/100):
"It's so close to perfect, so near to overcoming its low-budget
obstacles and turning into something truly classic, that when Eddie
Presley fails to fulfill its promise, you want to jump into the movie
and nudge it forward, giving it that final push into the realm of
transcendence."

FULL FRAME DOCUMENTARY SHORTS (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
overall score 83/100):
"But perhaps nowhere has the diamond-encrusted power of the Digital
Versatile Disc been better exploited than in the realm of the
documentary. This mostly-ignored medium, resigned to special festivals
and little-seen PBS screenings, has found happy hospice on the modern
home theater format."

LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall
score 78/100):
"Long Day's Journey Into Night is a long, cloistered four-act play, and
director Sidney Lumet's (12 Angry Men, Serpico) film adaptation is
faithful to both the language and staging. This is not a film that opens
up its source, reinventing it as something fundamentally cinematic."

PETER PAN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 91/100):
"Many adults, especially those that grew up reading fantasy, will find
that Peter Pan raises fond memories of that period of their own lives."

SAVAGES (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 76/100):
"Unfortunately, because of the film's self-awareness, it can become
arch, as when it draws our attention for the umpty-jillionth time to the
savagery underlying supposedly civilized behavior, as when affronted
women refer to men as 'beasts.'"

THE WOLF MAN: THE LEGACY COLLECTION (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
score 86/100):
"No one ever worried that they might suddenly turn into Frankenstein's
Monster, but after leaving the theater on a night with a full moon, I'll
bet more than one Wolf Man viewer checked the back of their hand for
traces of bristly hair."
