Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: SEASON TWO,
BEST OF THE CHRIS ROCK SHOW (VOLUMES 1 AND 2), THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS
REY, 11:14, HIGH TENSION, INSERTS, KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, LEGEND OF ZELDA:
COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES, SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, SLIME CITY,
SOUTH PARK: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON, UNBORN BUT FORGOTTEN, and THE
WORK OF DIRECTOR ANTON CORBIJN:


ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: SEASON TWO (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
score 97/100):
"Each episode brings premise after ridiculous premise, and it's all
executed with the trademark wit of the writers and the timing of the
cast, which, for my nickel, is the funniest comedy ensemble since The
Muppet Show."

BEST OF THE CHRIS ROCK SHOW (VOLUMES 1 AND 2) (reviewed by David
Johnson, overall score 89/100):
"Not all the sketches are homeruns, but there's enough thoroughly funny
stuff for me to recommend this set, as a huge Chris Rock fan and as a
dude that likes watching things that make me laugh to myself."

THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall
score 91/100):
"If you have read the novel, you'll find that The Bridge of San Luis
Rey, for the most part, keeps the spirit of Wilder's classic. It does
make changes, however."

11:14 (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 93/100):
"A kaleidoscopic jigsaw of flashbacks, cuts, montages, and repetition,
the film traces through the events leading up to the fateful 11:14 PM,
through various angles, observed by the people who congregate
inadvertently upon the chaos. No linear storytelling here; the film
jumps in every direction possible, weaving its tale back and forth,
often repeating sequences from the perspective of different characters."

HIGH TENSION (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 88/100):
"Compared to some of the 'horror' that Hollywood has churned out
recently, High Tension is gorier than a marathon of those Learning
Channel surgery shows."

INSERTS (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 92/100):
"Inserts was an audacious film for its time and paid the price for being
so. Take advantage of this DVD release to see what all of the fuss was
about. Despite excellent acting by the entire cast, and a provocative
but well-handled storyline, most reviewers, and the general public who
saw it on its original limited release, hated the movie."

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 97/100):
"One of the pleasant surprises about Kingdom of Heaven, and probably a
key in its box office drubbing, is its thoughtful, ambivalent approach
to the conflict between Christians and Muslims."

LEGEND OF ZELDA: COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES (reviewed by Mac McEntire,
overall score 83/100):
"These days, fans often complain how there's yet to be a decent video
game adaptation coming out of Hollywood, but here's one that, although
not perfect, is pretty good."

SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
score 84/100):
"Quite a pleasant film, and one that should live on video for awhile, as
the themes of friendship, love and life are great growing of age
concepts that everyone can relate to."

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/si...elingpants.php

SLIME CITY (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 86/100):
"For the miniscule budget it was made on ($35,000), the gore effects are
surprisingly well done. Again, these aren't of the scary, disturbing
ilk, but more of the slapstick severed-head-on-the-floor-instructing-its-body-to-
kill variety."

SOUTH PARK: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 94/100):
"Unlike its chief rival, The Simpsons, there is no attempt at familial
bliss, interpersonal insight, or subtle spirituality. No, Parker and
Stone believe that kids are far more primitive than we allow them to be.
In their eyes, growing up is the complication and deconstruction of
something that is pure, prescient, and puerile."

UNBORN BUT FORGOTTEN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 65/100):
"Yeah, it's yet another creepy techno-ghost Asian horror film. Yipee."

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/unbornforgotten.php

THE WORK OF DIRECTOR ANTON CORBIJN (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 89/100):
"When viewed side by side, without any distance of time or setting, the
similarities are just striking. One video melds into the other, creating
a kind of universal statement of rock-and-roll musicianship."
