Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ARE WE THERE YET?, HAL ROACH: THE
KING OF IRISH COMEDY, HOUSE OF CARDS, PANIC BEATS, SASQUATCH HUNTERS,
STEAL, STEEL FISTED DRAGON, and VAMPIRES: THE TURNING:


ARE WE THERE YET? (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 60/100):
"Do we really need this? Who wants to see Ice Cube in a family comedy?
Sure, he has kids of his own, and maybe he thought it would be nice to
make a movie for them, but given the result here, that's not much of a
reason. At least Snoop is smart enough to stick to voiceover work."

HAL ROACH: THE KING OF IRISH COMEDY (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 45/100):
"Like a rejected extra from Darby O'Gill and the Little People, Roach
saunters across the quaint Jury cabaret stage more tickled by his own
supposed wit than the laugh-track enhanced crowd crowing along with him.
And as he plays to the room, delivering his predictable punch lines, you
just can't help but wonder who finds this fool funny -- and better yet,
why science has yet to find a cure for what ails them."

HOUSE OF CARDS (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall score 43/100):
"Close scrutiny of this picture is on par with a hurricane descending on
a House of Cards -- the results are chaos and absolute destruction; the
structure falls apart."

PANIC BEATS (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 62/100):
"This is a movie cobbled together out of tired old terror cliches and
then filtered through a foreign fright filmmaking ideal that's heavy on
atmosphere and light on logic. You can almost set your watch by the
differing macabre movements present."

SASQUATCH HUNTERS (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 40/100):
"The actors simply cannot act. The special effects and makeup are
horrible. For what it's worth -- and it ain't worth much -- Sasquatch
Hunters looks like something a group of junior-high students hastily
threw together for their A/V class midterm."

STEAL (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall score 60/100):
"Good afternoon, class. Welcome to...Class? Settle down. As I was
saying, good afternoon, and welcome to your first semester of 'How Not
to Make a Movie 101.' I take it you've all had the chance to review your
first assignment, Steal?"

STEEL FISTED DRAGON (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 53/100):
"An impenetrable, incoherent mess and an assault on the senses in the
technical department, Steel Fisted Dragon is a flick only for those of
you who want something to lambaste on a Saturday night. Actually, in
that capacity, it's not too bad."

VAMPIRES: THE TURNING (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 75/100):
"Vampires: The Turning is not bad and not that good. It's a superbly
mediocre vampire movie. For every cool thing it's got going for it,
there's something subpar that brings it back down. It's like a perpetual
one-step-forward, one-step-back demon tango."
