Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of FREAKY FRIDAY (1976), THE GRASS
HARP, JOHNNY RENO, LORETTA LYNN: SONGS OF INSPIRATION, MACROSS PLUS: THE
COLLECTION, PIT FIGHTER, RUMIKO TAKAHASHI ANTHOLOGY VOLUME 3: A TOUCH OF
MAGIC, SUDS, and THROUGH THE BACK DOOR:


FREAKY FRIDAY (1976) (reviewed by Jesse Ataide, overall score 70/100):
"There's nothing worse than a little shattered nostalgia."

THE GRASS HARP (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 85/100):
"The most amazing aspect of The Grass Harp is the cast. Piper Laurie
gives a heartbreaking and tender quality to the mystical, girlish Dolly
Talbo. It's interesting to see her here as Sissy Spacek's sister,
especially when it's Spacek who is the dour, crotchety, abusively
domineering one."

JOHNNY RENO (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 70/100):
"Johnny Reno was probably a feature best enjoyed as the second
installment in a double bill at a drive-in, when audiences would be
woozy enough after two hours in a car to not mind a little lackadaisical
stroll through a Western. It's certainly not perfect, but I wouldn't say
it lacks charm."

LORETTA LYNN: SONGS OF INSPIRATION (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
score 76/100):
"Although not the best digital representation of Lynn's long and varied
career, MPI's Loretta Lynn: Songs of Inspiration delivers exactly what
it promises, and with a generally pleasing technical presentation, it
should satisfy fans of the artist looking to add the coal miner's
daughter to their DVD collection."

MACROSS PLUS: THE COLLECTION (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall
score 80/100):
"Macross Plus is a better sequel than I ever could have hoped for.
Everything I loved about the first series -- simply put, the balance
between the epic and the personal aspects of the story -- can be
found here."

PIT FIGHTER (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 72/100):
"Action movies like this one live and die pretty much on the quality of
the hand-to-hand combat. Whereas a coherent plot is welcome, I never
found it that necessary. Besides, if you're tuning into a movie called
Pit Fighter to soak up a memorable story, chances are your native planet
is Neptune."

RUMIKO TAKAHASHI ANTHOLOGY VOLUME 3: A TOUCH OF MAGIC (reviewed by Mike
Pinsky, overall score 86/100):
"This is the sort of tale Rumiko Takehashi excels at: the psychological
struggle of characters to overcome their own emotional barricades, even
while assaulted from the outside by crazy and fantastic circumstances."

SUDS (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall score 93/100):
"The production of this disc exceeds all reasonable expectations.
Milestone is rapidly earning a reputation among film lovers that will
put it on par with Criterion for a devotion to film restoration and the
release of first-class DVD product."

THROUGH THE BACK DOOR (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall score 89/100):
"Milestone receives high marks for keeping our film heritage alive with
quality DVDs of historically significant motion pictures, supplemented
by generous bonus features. For the movie lover new to the unique
pleasures of watching silent films, Milestone's catalog could make it
habit-forming."
