    AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 97/100):
    "When you're looking for sure signs of social acceptance, happiness
    is high on the list. Of course, it helps to have art as your
    assistance. You can get a great deal accomplished with that kind of
    angel at your table."

    THE DEFENDER (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 83/100):
    "From the first moment the enemies open fire, the movie rarely takes a
    breath. Seriously, this must have set some kind of record in the prop
    department for most blanks used."

    GHOST STORIES ONE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 90/100):
    "Ghost Stories One just might be the most fun you're going to have
    with anime this year. It's fast and funny with a twisted take on
    pop culture."

    HOUSE OF WAX (2005) (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 83/100):
    "On par with most 'dead teenager' flicks, the young stars are about as
    interchangeable as Paris Hilton's boyfriends/sex partners/ex-fiances."

    THE LINA WERTMULLER COLLECTION (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 83/100):
    "The truth of the matter is that Lina Wertmuller, for better or worse,
    stands out as the one modern female film director whose films are both
    commercially successful (and accessible to audiences) and yet critically
    respectable. Not that this should be taken to disparage the work of Lina
    Wertmuller in any way. It just seems like, well, to drop a cliche,
    Wertmuller is in a class by herself."

    THE MAN WITH NINE LIVES (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 74/100):
    "Although ostensibly a 'mad doctor' film, and easily lumped in with a
    run of several similar Karloff-starring science thrillers made by
    Columbia in the late 1930s, those expecting the standard 'science run
    amok' plot will be surprised to find that The Man with Nine Lives does
    not actually condemn limitless scientific research, but instead suggests
    that individual sacrifices are sometimes a necessary evil on the road to
    saving thousands."

    POINT PLEASANT: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 68/100):
    "As our lead, Elisabeth Harnois is eye-gougingly sexy, but, sadly, she's
    just not strong enough of an actress to carry a series. She does have
    some great moments, especially during those times when she takes a step
    toward her dark side, but at other times it seems she's just reading her
    lines out loud, rather than creating a character."

    THE RESURRECTED (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 85/100):
    "It's a shame old H.P. Lovecraft had to go and die all those years ago
    (in 1937, to be exact). Had he hung around long enough to see the
    invention of the modern movie macabre, he could have cleaned up
    financially, what with all the residual checks he'd be owed and lawsuits
    he'd win for the use, 'borrowing,' and outright stealing of the plots
    and particulars of his unique brand of weird fiction."

    SIGNS OF LIFE (reviewed by Jesse Ataide, overall score 89/100):
    "Most of the film is constructed by sequences that bear very little
    connection to each other in a chronological sense. Rather, they are a
    series of individual scenes that reveal the characters' complex
    relationship with their environment."

    3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN: SEASON TWO (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 95/100):
    "Sadly, the fact that these are shortened episodes makes it difficult to
    recommend a purchase here. Rent these discs, for certain, but purchase
    only if your life depends on it."

    2004 NFC CHAMPIONS: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (reviewed by Jeff Andreasen,
    overall score 95/100):
    "All in all this is a great recap of the Eagles' near-championship
    season, another stellar offering from NFL Films -- which keeps getting
    better at this year-end highlight stuff -- and a must for any Eagles
    fan's video shelf."
