    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BEVERLY KILLS, BLUE'S CLUES:
    BLUE'S JOBS, FINAL FANTASY VII: ADVENT CHILDREN: TWO-DISC SPECIAL
    EDITION, GOYOKIN, THE LITTLE COLONEL, THE OREGON TRAIL, S-CRY-ED: THE
    LOST GROUND (VOLUME 1) (ANIME LEGENDS EDITION), SEQUINS, and VANILLA /
    A LITTLE COMFORT:


    BEVERLY KILLS (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 95/100):
    "Beverly Kills emulates the theatricality and kink factor of a John
    Waters production, and returns Dietz to the same tone as Fag Hag. It's
    played for comical farce, but also sports the trappings of a thriller
    and a sugary gay romance. It's got more stuff going on than a go-go boy
    with a plastic extension in his g-string getting in to the groove on top
    of a speaker."

    BLUE'S CLUES: BLUE'S JOBS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 85/100):
    "Blue agreed to sit down with Judge David Johnson to talk about the new
    release, the pressures of being a children's show icon, and the recent
    drug scandal."

    FINAL FANTASY VII: ADVENT CHILDREN: TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed
    by Adam Arseneau, overall score 92/100):
    "The point is, anyone who has a degree in nerdism with a minor in
    dorkology will take to this film like a fish into water...but unless
    you have spent serious time playing Final Fantasy VII, you will be
    royally screwed."

    GOYOKIN (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 85/100):
    "Though this system represented a long (and sometimes stultifying) road
    of corporate ladder-climbing for inspired artists, it had a mostly
    positive impact on the Japanese film industry as a whole. Even middling
    directors like Gosha were capable of delivering tightly structured,
    artfully shot program pictures. Gosha's 1969 actioner, Goyokin, is a
    case in point."

    THE LITTLE COLONEL (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 84/100):
    "You basically have two choices: ignore the racism and enjoy the picture
    in spite of it, or spend the eighty minutes in an apoplectic fit of
    seething rage."

    THE OREGON TRAIL (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall score 76/100):
    "Decent bonus materials compensate for a mediocre print and a creaky
    storyline in 15 chapters padded with plenty of stock footage from the
    Universal vaults."

    S-CRY-ED: THE LOST GROUND (VOLUME 1) (ANIME LEGENDS EDITION) (reviewed
    by Mac McEntire, overall score 80/100):
    "I don't know what the titular 's-CRY-ed' means, either."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/scryedvol1.php

    SEQUINS (reviewed by Russell Engebretson, overall score 86/100):
    "The warp and woof of this film -- its sensual images and sounds -- is a
    seductively crafted ode to its women characters."

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

    VANILLA / A LITTLE COMFORT (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 84/100):
    "There's something about naked men that doesn't conjure scary -- just
    vulnerable. Add to that, these naked men are gym-buffed and preened like
    male peacocks. The only thing that's scary is that nobody has touched a
    carb since 1995."
