Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE, LIL' PIMP,
SERIAL SLAYER, UNPRECEDENTED: THE 2000 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: 2004
CAMPAIGN EDITION, and WYCLEF JEAN: ALL STAR JAM AT CARNEGIE HALL:


THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 15/100):
"Despite my efforts to coordinate director Cardona's scatter-shot
approach to filmmaking, The Bermuda Triangle still remains an incoherent
mess. You can slice-and-dice it, toss, tease, and tweak the
aforementioned elements in any order, and still come up with a movie
that goes nowhere at the pace of a barnacle."

LIL' PIMP (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 30/100):
"Co-creators Peter Gilstrap and Mark Brooks must have thought the idea
of a young white kid running with a crew of foulmouthed black pimps was
in itself a funny enough idea to sustain a feature film, because they
certainly didn't bother to write any jokes into this story. I couldn't
find a single laugh in this thing. I'm all for jokes about Whitey, Bobo,
Mr. Charlie, and/or The Man, but I don't think the image of a little
white boy dressed up like Rooster or Huggy Bear is automatically funny,
and, apparently I'm not the only person who feels this way."

SERIAL SLAYER (reviewed by Patrick Bromley, overall score 60/100):
"Well, what does this film think is scary? There aren't any visceral
scares; when the lame crossbow killer (not that badass with the super-
deluxe crossbow on the disc's keepcase cover, but rather a wimp with a
toy weapon and some pantyhose on his head) does strike, we don't ever
see it! We just hear a little 'whoosh' noise! You don't see any arrows
get fired! Just one sticking in the victim, with the tiniest little ring
of laughably fake blood around it!"

UNPRECEDENTED: THE 2000 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: 2004 CAMPAIGN EDITION
(reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall score 50/100):
"Forget the argument over whether your boy won or not and look, instead,
at the opportunity such a documentary had to delve thoughtfully into one
of the oddest and likely most embarrassing moments in the history of
American elections. Both sides were anxious, both sides were determined
to win, and both sides applied every standing law, every political
strategy, and every possible appeal to public opinion in order to sway
the outcome."

WYCLEF JEAN: ALL STAR JAM AT CARNEGIE HALL (reviewed by Adam Arseneau,
overall score 67/100):
"The inherent absurdity of seeing Wyclef onstage in his b-boy stance,
trying to coax well-dressed, well-fed and wealthy white people out of
their seats in order to 'jump around,' simply boggles the mind. It
yahtzees the mind, even."
