Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY
HILARIOUS COLLECTION, BEAR SNORES ON AND MORE STORIES TO CELEBRATE THE
SEASONS, CHEERS: THE COMPLETE SEVENTH SEASON, DANNY AND THE DINOSAUR AND
MORE FRIENDLY MONSTER STORIES, THE EDUKATORS (DIE FETTEN JAHRE SIND
VORBEI), OUT OF THE PAST, and RACING AGAINST THE CLOCK:


AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY HILARIOUS COLLECTION (reviewed by Mike
Pinsky, overall score 75/100):
"Sony has given both established Python fans and new recruits little
incentive to pick up this collection. These are all good films
individually, but this collection is less than the sum of its parts."

BEAR SNORES ON AND MORE STORIES TO CELEBRATE THE SEASONS (reviewed by
David Johnson, overall score 85/100):
"Here's how this story shakes out: Bear is curled up in his cave,
sitting winter out and getting his hibernating on. While he snoozes, a
steady parade of woodland animals march in, build a fire, cook food,
make hot beverages, and basically enjoy wanton revelry while Bear is
out cold."

CHEERS: THE COMPLETE SEVENTH SEASON (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
score 90/100):
"The greatest accomplishment the showrunners were able to pull off, even
from the get-go, was to populate their bar with likeable characters. As
a result, settling in for 24 minutes with this crew is always
comfortable, and to risk hyperbole, reminiscent of spending time with a
gaggle of old friends."

DANNY AND THE DINOSAUR AND MORE FRIENDLY MONSTER STORIES (reviewed by
David Johnson, overall score 85/100):
"It's minimalist storytelling, but kids love the juxtaposition of huge
animals and diminutive protagonists."

THE EDUKATORS (DIE FETTEN JAHRE SIND VORBEI) (reviewed by Neal Solon,
overall score 75/100):
"The Edukators is a missed opportunity. To come up with a great idea
like 'socialist radicals who break into houses only to rearrange the
belongings of the wealthy and leave notes foretelling the end of their
material wealth,' and then squander that idea on ordinary explorations
of ordinary themes, is criminal. The Edukators isn't a bad film, it just
leaves one cold."

OUT OF THE PAST (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 90/100):
"Perhaps now more than ever the film is needed to remind audiences of
the struggle the gay community faces to reach a place where they are
simply understood by American society. It is a cry for tolerance, and an
affirmation that nobody struggles with this issue alone."

RACING AGAINST THE CLOCK (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 90/100):
"Filmmaker Bill Haney's approach to storytelling is straightforward and
wisely devoid of sensationalism. He views his subjects with tremendous
admiration, not condescension, and he respects the magnitude of their
accomplishments."
