Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, COREY
HOLCOMB: THE PROBLEM IS YOU, COSPLAY COMPLEX, CURIOUS GEORGE RIDES A
BIKE AND MORE TALES OF MISCHIEF, L/R (LICENSED BY ROYALTY): BROKEN
ANGEL (VOLUME 3), POKEMON: JIRACHI WISH MAKER, SAINT SEIYA: COSMIC RIFT
(VOLUME 5), SEBASTIAN BACH: FOREVER WILD, SPEED RACER: LIMITED
COLLECTOR'S EDITION, VOLUME TWO, and WEDDING PEACH: SPRING STORM
(VOLUME 3):


ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 84/100):
"Antony and Cleopatra is an unusual tragedy in that its protagonists
start out flawed and gradually grow to heroic stature over the course of
the play."

COREY HOLCOMB: THE PROBLEM IS YOU (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
score 83/100):
"Corey Holcomb is certainly funnier than the average comic, can
probably win Last Comic Standing, owns the stage when he's on it, and
projects a great personality, but suffers from a one-topic focus of hit
or miss jokes."

COSPLAY COMPLEX (reviewed by Sandra Dozier, overall score 85/100):
"The Chaplin Revue remains a quagmire in Chaplin's canon. While it was
great to have three of his finest shorts compiled into a feature film,
some purists complained that the new format was a mere bastardization of
the original shorts."

CURIOUS GEORGE RIDES A BIKE AND MORE TALES OF MISCHIEF (reviewed by
David Johnson, overall score 86/100):
"George's A.D.D. kicks in halfway through the route and he abandons the
job, opting instead to make sailboats out of the newspapers and send
them down the river. One thing leads to another and George finds himself
a) picked up by two strange men willing to give hitchhiking monkeys a
lift, b) rescuing a bear, and c) participating in a gala animal show.
Man that monkey does more in ten minutes than I'll do in my whole life!"

L/R (LICENSED BY ROYALTY): BROKEN ANGEL (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by Adam
Arseneau, overall score 71/100):
"If Cowboy Bebop were set in the UK and had a total lack of spaceships,
it would look a lot like L/R: Licensed By Royalty. Or rather, it would,
if the animators were watching James Bond movies and Miami Vice reruns."

POKEMON: JIRACHI WISH MAKER (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall
score 85/100):
"The film starts out with a good deal of exposition, so much so I
thought I was watching a special feature or hit the wrong button on my
remote. Unfortunately, I still don't understand why these four kids and
this androgynous, electricity shooting mouse are hanging out together."

SAINT SEIYA: COSMIC RIFT (VOLUME 5) (reviewed by Sandra Dozier, overall
score 80/100):
"Due to the epic story arc, it's difficult to get into Saint Seiya
unless you've seen the whole thing. If you watched this volume
alone, you might not be terribly impressed by the animation, which
shows its age."

SEBASTIAN BACH: FOREVER WILD (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 88/100):
"Bach may be a fool, but he is a wise one, and Forever Wild is a great
reminder of his presence and command as a musician and an individual."

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/se...oreverwild.php

SPEED RACER: LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION, VOLUME TWO (reviewed by Bill
Gibron, overall score 84/100):
"We have long since forgotten what it is like to allow our developing
males the chance to live a boy's adventure tale, fretting they'd grow up
fueled with testosterone instead of salient sensitivity. Speed Racer
recalls those days in scary, action-packed platitudes."

WEDDING PEACH: SPRING STORM (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
overall score 85/100):
"Although not a controversial series in any way, the series certainly
does not feel any need to provide a balanced point of view about love --
as far as Wedding Peach is concerned, all we need is love."
