    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE AGRONOMIST, BECAUSE OF WINN-
    DIXIE, BOSTON RED SOX 2004 WORLD SERIES: COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FRIGHT
    PACK 1: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, GEORGE CARLIN: DOIN' IT AGAIN, JULIAN
    PO, STONE COLD, and THE TRAIN ROBBERS:


    THE AGRONOMIST (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 83/100):
    "Don't be surprised if The Agronomist takes a viewing or two to settle
    in. There is a lot of information swirling past the screen, and
    Dominique is larger than life, so much so that a single film cannot
    possibly contain him. Having watched the film three times, I admit that
    I have a hard time keeping up."

    BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 85/100):
    "Because of Winn-Dixie has a formula kids will enjoy -- a plucky and
    vivacious heroine, an adorable dog and various cute animals, an
    eccentric group of over-the-top characters, slapstick humor, and big
    acting. But it lacks the ability to speak to adults."

    BOSTON RED SOX 2004 WORLD SERIES: COLLECTOR'S EDITION (reviewed by Ryan
    Keefer, overall score 91/100):
    "So, in the event that the Sox don't manage to repeat, or if fate
    resigns more generations to fret hopelessly, this set is available to
    you to preserve the 2004 miracle season for posterity. Shell out the
    $100 and buy it already."

    FRIGHT PACK 1: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 77/100):
    "And yet again we have a movie where the Devil gets lucky with a nubile
    young Italian actress on a sacrificial slab while appearing as a man in
    a goat mask. I'm sensing a theme developing here."

    GEORGE CARLIN: DOIN' IT AGAIN (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 89/100):
    "The reason Carlin's material is brilliant is the way he manages to
    deftly diffuse any shock value in the words themselves."

    JULIAN PO (reviewed by Patrick Bromley, overall score 73/100):
    "Julian Po is lighter and broader than it needs to be, and takes a
    number of disappointing turns after a promising start. There's enough in
    it to admire -- keeping the film from being a total failure -- but it
    doesn't work as a whole. It's the kind of movie that's just good enough
    to make one wish it was better."

    STONE COLD (reviewed by Jeff Andreasen, overall score 74/100):
    "In Stone Cold, Jessie Stone is immediately established as the main man
    in town, and, to Stone, his new home must seem oh-so-perfectly named.
    The town councilmen who thought him a drunken dullard are no towering
    intellects themselves, his number one deputy makes Nigel Bruce's Doctor
    Watson look like Hercule Poirot, and the biggest case to come his way
    involves preening dopes so loudly advertising their guilt they couldn't
    put one over even on Scoob and Shag."

    THE TRAIN ROBBERS (reviewed by Ian Visser, overall score 80/100):
    "One expects this is how the real West must have been; long expanses of
    great loneliness broken only by the occasional town or outpost."
