AMERICAN WOMEN (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 69/100):
"Anyone buying this disc based on the Fox hype machine version of the
contents will be seriously disappointed."

ANYTHING GOES (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 55/100):
"I can think of a few four-letter words to describe this Bing
Crosby/Donald O'Connor musical, which had the audacity to water down
Cole Porter's sly, naughty lyrics and bore me to tears with its familiar
showbiz shenanigans and limp production numbers."

DA VINCI AND THE CODE HE LIVED BY (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
score 65/100):
"The producers were looking to tell Leonardo's story on an epic scale,
which apparently to them means painting the hero as one of the
Sopranos."

EVIL BREED: THE LEGEND OF SAMHAIN (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway,
overall score 30/100):
"Would a class action suit against the producers be out of the question?
I'm up for it if anybody else is."

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

HERE COME THE TIGERS (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 59/100):
"Here Come the Tigers is a heartless -- even cynical -- take on the
Cinderella sports team cliche that amounts to one big cinematic
strike out."

HI HI PUFFY AMIYUMI: LET'S GO! (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall
score 59/100):
"Parents, you can put on the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi DVD and walk away
secure that there won't be any inappropriate sexual innuendos or
remotely lifelike violence. This is important to know, because -- trust
me on this -- you are going to want to walk away."

LIVE FREAKY! DIE FREAKY! (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score
66/100):
"If you're a fan of punk rock aesthetics, you'll find Live Freaky! Die
Freaky! right up your alley. The humor is out there, so sensitive types
will find it offensive and hideously grotesque."

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/li...ydiefreaky.php

THE MAN (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 55/100):
"A special nod goes to director Les Mayfield, who shows a complete lack
of inspiration aside from just being there to pick up his paycheck."

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

RAMPAGE: THE HILLSIDE STRANGLER MURDERS (reviewed by David Johnson,
overall score 70/100):
"So, if you can overcome the brain-stabbing camera work, a decent
psychological screw-job of a film awaits you. But, kids, I'm telling
you: it's a lot to overcome."

SEX: LIFE IN L.A. PART 2: CYCLES OF PORN (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
overall score 69/100):
"Half the film details what life is like for several of the subjects
seen in the first film, Sex -- Life in L.A., who are out of the
business, and the other half concerns several guys currently working in
the industry. As you can imagine, a lot has changed since 1997 when the
first film was started. No need to have seen the first installment, but
it will help you be familiar with the older subjects like Cole Tucker
and Kevin Kramer. Fortunately this second chapter gives you enough of
their backstory to catch up easily."

SEXUAL INTELLIGENCE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 69/100):
"Honestly, I was hoping for tips and hints about how to do things better
in bed. Instead, I got a lot of lip service about ancient Roman penis
worship, and legends about Cupid and Psyche. It's all slightly
interesting, but not exactly what I was expecting."

THE STATIONMASTER'S WIFE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
score 58/100):
"It is a cramped mess of uninteresting human disarray. If you still care
about any of these characters by the time the end credits show up, you
have more empathy and patience than I."
