    BILLY ROSE'S JUMBO (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 90/100):
    "All in all, Billy Rose's Jumbo is easy to recommend. It's sweet, good-
    natured, and goes by quickly and easily."

    THE BRITISH WAR COLLECTION (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 83/100):
    "British war movies have an edge of sadness not present in the gung-ho
    efforts of American filmmakers at the time."

    CONSTANTINE: TWO-DISC DELUXE EDITION (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 90/100):
    "A summary of my thoughts in cutesy review blurb format: 'A devilishly
    good time!' 'A Hell of a lot of fun!' 'Constantine is a hot flick!' 'See
    it! You'll be damned if you don't!'"

    DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN (reviewed by Lacey Worrell, overall score 88/100):
    "There are several moments, especially involving Mary Ann's daughter and
    newborn baby, that will make anyone cringe, as the film details the
    effect addiction has on the entire family, not just on the addict. That
    said, what sets this film above the rest is the underlying theme that
    regardless of how sad Mary Ann's childhood was, it does not abdicate her
    adult responsibilities to herself, her husband, and her children."

    DODGE CITY (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 82/100):
    "Dodge City is a B-movie western story elevated to A-list status,
    seemingly through sheer force of will. Thank director Michael Curtiz for
    that; he keeps things moving along at breakneck speed, thrusting the
    easy, breezy Flynn into one hot situation after another at a pace that
    probably kept movie audiences of the time from realizing that they've
    probably seen all this before, if not on such an epic scale, and
    certainly not in Technicolor."

    DON GRUSIN: THE HANG (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 85/100):
    "Grusin's music is a delight. I'm not much of a jazz enthusiast, but I
    know what I like, and I certainly enjoyed Grusin and his friends coming
    into my living room and making some good music for an hour or so."

    ENDURING LOVE (reviewed by Jesse Ataide, overall score 80/100):
    "Enduring Love is one of those occasional films that sets the bar so
    high during its first scene that the rest of the film seems like an
    anticlimax."

    EXTREME CHICKFIGHTS VOLUME 1 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 75/100):
    "This civilization is too far gone. I recommend prompt and total
    annihilation."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/extremechickfightsvol1.php

    GRAY MATTER (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 94/100):
    "Vienna is the home of Spiegelgrund Clinic. Spiegelgrund Clinic is the
    home of a frightening room. Until recently, it housed the brains of
    hundreds of children -- children murdered by a Nazi doctor who still
    lives comfortably on a government pension."

    GUN: THE COMPLETE SIX FILM ANTHOLOGY (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Appropriately enough for a series about a gun, the six episodes are hit
    and miss."

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

    INSIDE THE MALE INTELLECT (reviewed by Aaron Bossig, overall
    score 89/100):
    "What starts out being a punch line ends up being a measure of
    personal growth."

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

    MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: MLB SUPERSTARS SHOW YOU THEIR GAME (reviewed by
    David Johnson, overall score 80/100):
    "This isn't a specially produced DVD featuring in-depth how-to lessons
    by pros. It's a gleaning of bits from This Week in Baseball."

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

    MASALA (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 84/100):
    "Masala stirred up quite a bit of controversy upon its initial release.
    Many of the more orthodox (if that's the right term) Hindus objected to
    its less than reverent portrayal of the gods Krishna and Balrama, and
    other people of South Asian descent resented what they felt was its use
    of stereotypes and self-directed racism. Masala weathered the
    controversy over its release well."
