    BILL ENGVALL: HERE'S YOUR SIGN LIVE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 85/100):
    "If you lead the kind of life where your wife asks you about her new
    hairstyle while your daughter has just started her cycle and your son
    whistles at hot women behind your back, you'll appreciate Engvall's
    sardonic commentary on the everyday."

    CRIME SPREE (reviewed by Erin Boland, overall score 85/100):
    "Taking some very obvious influences from Quentin Tarantino, Mirman has
    composed a film that is rather visually engrossing. While not entirely
    original, some of the action sequence screen-shots could only be
    described as 'cool.'"

    DOUBLE TROUBLE (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 89/100):
    "It is an entertaining comedy that doesn't quite work overall but is
    loaded with such ambition that one can forgive the excesses."

    THE HISTORY CHANNEL PRESENTS: THE RACE TO THE MOON (reviewed by Sandra
    Dozier, overall score 85/100):
    "The space race began because America wanted to prove its super-power
    status and wanted to beat the Russians, but it's the motivation of the
    everyday Joe who works toward that goal that gets to me. What
    motivates an otherwise sane man to go into an oxygen-free environment
    that will crush him like tissue paper if something goes wrong with the
    craft he is in?"

    THE HISTORY CHANNEL PRESENTS: TROY (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Those seeking a comprehensive look at Troy and the Trojan War will find
    only a limited amount of useful material here."

    NBA DYNASTY SERIES: THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS -- THE COMPLETE HISTORY
    (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 87/100):
    "The NBA has yet to find a way to bridge the gap between the stressing
    of statistics and the epic scope of man vs. the athletic elements."

    THE REAGANS (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 84/100):
    "In my mind he didn't seem like the President, but a kindly old man who
    was pushing our country into good places. Of course, I was only ten
    years old and didn't understand the difference between the word 'pair'
    and 'pear,' so what did I know?"

    THE REPUBLIC OF LOVE (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 99/100):
    "Moviegoers jaded by the predictability and relentless feel-good bombast
    of big-budget romantic comedies will find The Republic of Love
    refreshing. It will do more than restore your faith in love: It will
    restore your faith in movies."

    SEASIDE (BORD DE MER) (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 83/100):
    "You may want to plan on taking your time with Seaside. It's not an
    experience to rush through; after all, since we're watching a year in
    these people's lives (if only the highlights), we can't really expect it
    to fly by."

    SPEEDWAY (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 87/100):
    "Speedway is merely a breezy entertainment, and on that level it
    succeeds beautifully."

    SPINOUT (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 99/100):
    "While I have always said that King Creole is the best film Elvis
    Presley ever made, Spinout comes very close to taking that honor. It is
    probably my personal favorite of the 33 films Presley made."

    THREE BLIND MICE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 80/100):
    "This made-for-television movie is a surprisingly well-done piece of mystery-
    solving wackiness."
