    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of FINAL FANTASY: UNLIMITED: PHASE 7,
    GRAND THEFT PARSONS, HEDY LAMARR DOUBLE FEATURE, KALEIDO STAR: ALL
    THINGS GREAT AND SMALL (VOLUME 2), LASSIE COME HOME / SON OF LASSIE /
    COURAGE OF LASSIE, THE LOVELESS, THE MOTHER, R.O.D. THE TV, VOLUMES TWO
    AND THREE, VINCENT PRICE DOUBLE FEATURE, WAR GAME, and WESTENDER:


    FINAL FANTASY: UNLIMITED: PHASE 7 (reviewed by David Ryan, overall
    score 65/100):
    "For a while there, in the middle, Final Fantasy: Unlimited was shaping
    up to be a decent anime series. Not great, but decent. But then, it had
    to go and do this. There's no excuse for a show leaving its audience
    hanging in such a disrespectful way."

    GRAND THEFT PARSONS (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score
    80/100):
    "There's an affably loopy quality to Grand Theft Parsons. I don't care
    how true it is, Phil Kaufman's story is pretty frickin' ridiculous, so
    playing up the stoner-bud road trip aspects of the tale works in the
    film's favor."

    HEDY LAMARR DOUBLE FEATURE (reviewed by Bryan Byun, overall score
    85/100):
    "What's most surprising about Dishonored Lady, given its
    sensationalistic title and melodramatic plot, is how fresh and vital it
    seems nearly sixty years later. Instead of settling into a conventional
    morality tale about the redemption of a loose woman, the film focuses
    squarely on Madeleine's self-actualization and search for an independent
    identity. "

    KALEIDO STAR: ALL THINGS GREAT AND SMALL (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Sandra
    Dozier, overall score 90/100):
    "Because of the focus on character growth, Kaleido Star neatly avoids
    the trap of being needlessly unrealistic in its perky take on life."

    LASSIE COME HOME / SON OF LASSIE / COURAGE OF LASSIE (reviewed by Barrie
    Maxwell, overall score 74/100):
    "Lassie enthusiasts will be pleased to have these vintage MGM efforts
    now available to them on DVD. Each film is diverting, although the
    overall quality declines slightly with each succeeding entry."

    THE LOVELESS (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 75/100):
    "Unfortunately, The Loveless frequently crosses the double yellow line
    into style over substance, as this achingly slow pace tends to work
    against the film dramatically."

    THE MOTHER (reviewed by Bryan Byun, overall score 95/100):
    "The way the film depicts sexual relationships is almost painfully
    frank, to the point where it's difficult sometimes to watch the screen
    -- not because of what's being displayed, but because of what's being
    said, and because of the little gestures and expressions and pauses that
    convey things about why people have sex that most of us would rather not
    think about."

    R.O.D. THE TV, VOLUMES TWO AND THREE (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 89/100):
    "Nearing its midpoint, R.O.D. the TV has established itself as an
    intelligently written and suspenseful series. The show seems to improve
    with each new volume, increasing in story complexity without sacrificing
    character development. If it all pays off in the end, R.O.D. the TV
    could be one of the more satisfying shows in recent years."

    VINCENT PRICE DOUBLE FEATURE (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 74/100):
    "These are two terrific terror films that should be enjoyed by anyone
    with a love of classic horror. At a bargain bin price, this disc from
    ACME DVD Works has some value, I suppose, yet the films within deserve
    much better treatment."

    WAR GAME (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 92/100):
    "Though this is certainly aimed toward the family, it's not a light-
    hearted romp of cupcakes and sprinkles. We are talking about World War
    I, after all."

    WESTENDER (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 73/100):
    "If I were to write a script for a fantasy film, I wouldn't have it
    center around a quest for a ring. All that would do is draw attention to
    the areas in which my film lacked the good qualities of a certain
    fantasy trilogy. The creators of Westender did this anyway, which is one
    of the reasons that so many critics have discussed the film's wild
    ambition."
