    FAR FROM HOME (reviewed by David Ryan, overall score 60/100):

    trailer trash."

    GODZILLA: THE SERIES: THE MONSTER WARS TRILOGY (reviewed by Dennis
    Prince, overall score 56/100):
    "You could say Godzilla: The Series is dramatically superior to
    Godzilla: The Movie and nowhere would an eyebrow be raised in retort. As
    Saturday morning fare goes, this series showed some promise but, as this
    three-episode DVD betrays, the plotlines were doomed to formulaic
    framework."

    HEAD ABOVE WATER (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall score 56/100):
    "If you find yourself with a lazy, maybe rainy afternoon with nothing
    else to do, Head Above Water may help you navigate away from the onset
    of sheer boredom. Enjoy the scenery on hand and think hard about the
    other pictures these fine actors have done, then pop any one of those in
    the DVD player for a much better use of your time."

    IT TAKES A THIEF (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 46/100):
    "The crosses, double crosses, and mad scramble for the golden fleece
    only serve to remind the viewer of other, better films that appeared a
    good decade before It Takes a Thief, films that could have been watched
    instead of this one."

    THE LAST WARRIOR (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 68/100):
    "World War II, the defining event of the 20th century, reduced to a
    clash of cultures and two guys playing cat and mouse on an island in
    the middle of nowhere, a sort of Enemy Mine in the South Pacific, only
    without the friendly parts. The script is lackluster, the acting
    nothing special."

    MY LIFE WITHOUT ME (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 60/100):
    "My Life Without Me has most of the ingredients of a great film --
    wonderful acting, appealing direction, and an interesting and worthy
    story. Unfortunately, the script doesn't have the emotional truth needed
    to hold it together."

    THE RED SKELTON COLLECTION (reviewed by George Hatch, overall
    score 60/100):
    "Red Skelton was the second greatest pantomime artist -- right behind
    Marcel Marceau -- and there was both humor and pathos in his
    performances. He excelled at slapstick, and had the best timing when
    delivering the punch line of a joke. He created a half-dozen memorable
    characters that often winked and made funny, out-of-context asides to
    the audience, and no one topped him at ad-libbing."

    ROCK MY WORLD (reviewed by David Ryan, overall score 35/100):
    "I'm not kidding here -- I'm actually angry at this film, and the people
    who made it (especially the writer). Why? Because there was so much
    potential in this film -- all of which is utterly wasted -- that
    watching it is akin to watching a large diarrheal cow poop all over
    Botticelli's Madonna of the Pomegranate."

    SEARCHING FOR DEBRA WINGER (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score
    20/100):
    "Though Arquette begins the film by musing about the difficulties of
    balancing career and family, the fatal flaw of the film is that there is
    no actual thesis. It rambles on with no shape until it just stops and
    the credits roll."

    TOO HOT TO HANDLE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 61/100):
    "An engaging plot, a talented cast, and some top notch talent behind the
    camera lift this picture from the b-film doldrums, making it more than
    just what it is advertised here as: a showcase for blonde bombshell
    Jayne Mansfield."

    WHAT PRICE GLORY (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 55/100):
    "Imagine what Hogan's Heroes would have been if Colonel Hogan had been
    a drunken, abusive martinet. Imagine a Marx Brothers comedy like Duck
    Soup where the Marx Brothers have been replaced by a swaggering
    Napoleon clone."
