THE LUSTING HOURS / IN HOT BLOOD:


BLACK REBELS / MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 82/100):
"Individuals anxious for a little more adult action in their
exploitation experience will probably flee in fear once they see that
the black-on-white wantonness here is more or less left to the
imagination. The braver of the bunch should stick around and, perhaps,
learn a little something about the disgraceful segregation that ruled
the country for centuries."

DEEP PURPLE: LIVE IN MONTREAUX 1996 (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 81/100):
"Though often called Mach VII, the 1996 collective standing on the
Montreaux Jazz Festival stage is about as close to Mach II as you will
currently get. Everyone from the 1970-75 seminal line-up is here sans
Blackmore, and if you can accept ex-Dixie Dregs/Kansas guitarist Steve
Morse as a replacement, you'll have no real issue."

FOLLOW THE FLEET (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 86/100):
"So accustomed to playing second fiddle to Astaire, Rogers finally gets
a film that plays to her strengths. Based on a play by Hubert Osborne,
Follow the Fleet's creampuff story gives Rogers enough breathing room to
explore all the qualities she has, until now, only hinted at."

GRAVION: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
score 75/100):
"The show looks like a low budget affair without much complexity to the
images, and lots of the old 'pan across the cell to create action' cheat
that Japanese animation is famous for using."

THE HEIRLOOM (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 83/100):
"If halfway through a movie you just can't engage, something is wrong --
especially when the picture is so technically accomplished."

KALEIDO STAR: AMAZING COLLECTION (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
score 88/100):
"Kaleido Star is among the brightest, most uplifting anime ever
released."

MACABRE PAIR OF SHORTS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
80/100):
"Basically, the overall feel of this film is of good-natured, fairly
harmless parody. Blood and guts and debauchery are held at a minimum,
the production values are better-looking than most homegrown Troma fare
and the acting is appropriately ham-fisted."

THE MONEY MAMMALS: SAVING MONEY IS FUN! (reviewed by David Johnson,
overall score 85/100):
"'This is really a shame,' said Barbara Icedragon, a parent of two
young children. 'It's such a sweet DVD, full of music and colorful,
engaging puppetry. My kids really enjoyed it, even if they were way too
young to have any clue what money was. Heck, my three year-old still
thinks quarters are something you put in your mouth that mommy makes
you vomit up.'"

MY MOTHER'S SMILE (reviewed by Jonathan Weiss, overall score 91/100):
"On title alone, a person would be completely excused if they didn't
instantly see the link to religion in this film -- after all a title
like The Passion of Christ pretty much tells you everything you need to
know about what you're going to see even before you insert the disc."

PINKY (reviewed by Jesse Ataide, overall score 88/100):
"Seen through contemporary eyes, Pinky can come off as a rather quaint
examination of racial tensions in America as it reached the middle of
the 20th century. One wishes that it would have something more
compelling and timeless to say about interracial relationships or the
complex situation of light-skinned African Americans."

PLAYING FOR CHANGE (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 83/100):
"First impressions are key, and one look at a pre-flood Crescent City
simply breaks your heart. The vibrance, the life flowing through the
streets is just incredible."

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

ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
82/100):
"But how often do you see a Canadian '80s rocker in a cape punching a
demon in the face? If you answered 'Every day, why?' then I wish I
could be you."

FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/ro...lnightmare.php

SHE MOB / NYMPHS (ANONYMOUS) (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
score 90/100):
"So naturally, with She Mob being a big number two on the must-see
cinematic hit list, similar fears of dashed expectations surrounded
its arrival on the digital domain. Honestly, we needn't have worried.
She Mob is marvelous, a wild, way out exercise in potboiler perversion
that wears its weirdness right out on its stained cinematic sleeve for
all to see."

THE ULTIMATE DEGENERATE / THE LUSTING HOURS / IN HOT BLOOD (reviewed by
Bill Gibron, overall score 82/100):
"While the notion of pimps and the white slavery syndicate are never
mentioned in this magnificently mannered movie, there are enough uneasy
life lessons offered here to make The Lusting Hours quite educational.
It's just not very arousing."
