    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of AEON FLUX, AMERICAN DAD! VOLUME 1,
    EROSION, FAIRY TALE POLICE DEPARTMENT: CASE FILE #1, FISTS IN THE
    POCKET: CRITERION COLLECTION, THE GUARD FROM UNDERGROUND, HAVE NO FEAR:
    THE LIFE OF POPE JOHN PAUL II, KARAS: THE PROPHECY, METAL SKIN, 24 HOURS
    ON CRAIGSLIST, and THE WEDDING SINGER: TOTALLY AWESOME EDITION:


    AEON FLUX (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 81/100):
    "If you're of the opinion that Peter Chung's animation is gospel and
    ought not to be tampered with, you're going to find yourself kicking the
    coffee table throughout this movie. If you never saw the TV series and
    only picked up this DVD so you could watch a spandex-clad Charlize
    Theron kick major butt, you may like it just fine."

    AMERICAN DAD! VOLUME 1 (reviewed by Geoffrey Miller, overall
    score 86/100):
    "At first, I just stuck around out of convenience and curiosity, but as
    the weeks wore on, something miraculous happened: As it became
    increasingly obvious that new episodes of Family Guy were hit-and-miss
    affairs, American Dad! steadily improved and, eventually, won me over."

    EROSION (reviewed by Neal Solon, overall score 50/100):
    "The screen goes black for roughly a minute, color bars appear (with the
    accompanying high pitched tones), the screen goes black for a few more
    seconds, and then a brief section of the film that has already played
    repeats before the film continues."

    FAIRY TALE POLICE DEPARTMENT: CASE FILE #1 (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 80/100):
    "This series isn't gritty, but it does promise fairy action-and-
    adventure tales that children should really dig if they are fans of the
    original stories."

    FISTS IN THE POCKET: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Eric Profancik,
    overall score 85/100):
    "Fists in the Pocket is fascinating, a true pleasure to watch. A story
    featuring such family dysfunction, mental instability, and murder must
    be labeled as dark -- and Fists in the Pocket is quite dark."

    THE GUARD FROM UNDERGROUND (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 70/100):
    "A campy, surrealist slasher film, The Guard From Underground makes no
    apologies for its crappy budget, bad acting, or absurd plot...it simply
    goes out and kills a lot of people for no reason."

    HAVE NO FEAR: THE LIFE OF POPE JOHN PAUL II (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 45/100):
    "You know you're in trouble when events that were crucial to this Pope's
    reign, such as the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe and the success
    of the Solidarity Movement in his own native Poland, are given the
    'meaningful montage' treatment."

    KARAS: THE PROPHECY (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 90/100):
    "An audience shouldn't need a comic adaptation and a marketing blurb on
    the back of a keepcase to make sense of a movie's plot."

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

    METAL SKIN (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 82/100):
    "Metal Skin is an odd one to call. Maneuvering somewhere between a
    masterpiece and a complete mess, it is a film that definitely deserves a
    chance to find an audience. Where such a strange demographic can be
    located will be just one of the many hurdles this hyper-stylized movie
    must manage."

    24 HOURS ON CRAIGSLIST (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 88/100):
    "You've got the sexual, the innocent, and the money hungry gathered
    together in extremely fast-edited clips that are as scatological as the
    site itself."

    THE WEDDING SINGER: TOTALLY AWESOME EDITION (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 80/100):
    "Seriously, enough with the 'Totally Awesome Edition' and 'Explosive
    Extended Edition' and 'Special Delivery Edition' and 'Totally Explosive
    Super-Terrific Give Me Some Ritalin! Edition.' Next studio to put out a
    disc with a moronic label like this will be held in contempt."
