Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of AUSSIE PARK BOYZ, THE HIGH AND THE
MIGHTY, HOOP DAYS: ZONE 1, HUSH... HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE, LOCH NESS, and
SLEEPOVER (1996):


AUSSIE PARK BOYZ (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 80/100):
"I guess it's my ignorant ethnocentricity speaking, but when I think of
dangerous, violent street wars, the milieu that jumps to mind for such
hijinks is never Australia. But, judging from this independent action
film, those crazy kids from down under love the smackdown as much as our
home-grown gangs. "

THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 85/100):
"The High and the Mighty is impressive in size and vision, a touchstone
film for a lot of older film fans out there; Paramount has made sure
there are plenty of supplements that make the film very enjoyable for
modern viewers to boot."

HOOP DAYS: ZONE 1 (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 69/100):
"Though not my cup of tea, there are no outright problems with Hoop Days
to prevent me from recommending the show, especially to people who like
the idea of a high-school basketball anime. Also, for people who like
crappy CGI animation, bad voice acting, a predictable and laconic story,
and boring character design. Ha ha."

HUSH... HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall
score 86/100):
"In Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte the accents drip with honey, the
dialogue drips with venom, and the blood drips all over. Madness and
murder, schemes and screams, and a heck of a lot of dismemberment for an
A-list film -- this campy yet captivating classic has them all."

LOCH NESS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 82/100):
"Loch Ness is a completely serviceable piece of family entertainment.
There's nothing terribly mind-blowing here, or original, for that matter
-- ooh, a jaded scientist finds joy and wonder through a child and her
hot mother! -- but overall it's a quiet, inoffensive little tale."

SLEEPOVER (1996) (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall score 86/100):
"As a series of coming-of-age vignettes told over the course of one
night, the film succeeds. But not everything about this sleepover is a
party. At its conclusion, the script becomes a little too ambitious.
One of the characters pulls out an out-of-nowhere surprise that
doesn't seem consistent with him, or with the overall tone of the
movie. Even farther, the concluding moments veer close to preachy,
sentimental territory. What once felt real and heartfelt, suddenly
feels forced and cliched."
