    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BLAZING STEWARDESSES: SPECIAL
    EDITION, COUNT BASIE: SWINGING AT HIS BEST, COURAGE AND STUPIDITY, CUBE
    ZERO, FORGIVE ME FATHER, THE INTENDED, and THE STAR CHAMBER:


    BLAZING STEWARDESSES: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 50/100):
    "Mixing sex with six guns is not exactly new, but Blazing Stewardesses
    (yes, they were ripping of Mel Brook's racism farce) feels like five
    films found in the bottom of a forgotten storage bin and spliced
    together by monkeys with hoof and mouth disease."

    COUNT BASIE: SWINGING AT HIS BEST (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 42/100):
    "Helen Humes sings the hell out of this song. Her face draws you in and
    her voice speaks of sinful delights. You don't have to work too hard to
    uncover the hidden meaning in her words, and oh mama, I'm comin' back
    for some of that."

    COURAGE AND STUPIDITY (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score
    70/100):
    "Maybe it's because I'm not fully versed in Jaws's history, or maybe
    it's just that I'm not familiar with the true machinations of Hollywood.
    I don't know. All I know is that this 25-minute film is not funny --
    maybe occasionally and slightly humorous, but not funny."

    CUBE ZERO (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 60/100):
    "Without question, the acting is awful. These actors couldn't emote if
    you paid them (which, theoretically, someone did). Yet, as easy as it
    would be to point my finger at the actors and blame the entire travesty
    on them, it's not all their fault. Is it fair to ask an actor to turn
    crap into gold? Not even the most talented individuals can do that.
    (Refer again to Episodes I and II of Star Wars.)"

    FORGIVE ME FATHER (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 71/100):
    "Now add a black priest to this equation. We're talking something along
    the lines of Saint Shaft -- can you dig it? But hold on...let's make him
    Canadian. What major studio could possibly pass on a pitch that included
    all these deadly combinations rolled into one? A brother Father looking
    for vengeance because someone offed his baby brother, it's 'The Catholic
    Crow' and he's ready to fly."

    THE INTENDED (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 65/100):
    "Before that, the low-level tension kept me fascinated, but at some
    point we realize where the characters are headed, and then it's like
    watching a train wreck in slow motion. Only a really quiet train
    wreck, with no explosions or loud noises of any kind. And very, very
    slow motion."

    THE STAR CHAMBER (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 70/100):
    "It often pushes credibility to the breaking point, and works better at
    button-pushing than it does at logic, but at least it's never boring."
