    THE BACKYARDIGANS: CAVE PARTY (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 90/100):
    "No, this isn't the long awaited Backyardigans sex tape."

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

    BLACKOUT (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 79/100):
    "No one is spared from the spree of violence, and that's what makes the
    story so frightening."

    HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE: TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed
    by Jennifer Malkowski, overall score 98/100):
    "This Yule Ball segment is good evidence of why the screenplay adaptors,
    the editors, and Newell made excellent choices on where to speed and
    where to linger. Would we rather see another few scenes with the
    Dursleys and the S.P.E.W. subplot or really be able to delve into the
    comedy and fumbling teenage romance of the Yule Ball? The choice is
    easy, for me."

    HOUSE ON TELEGRAPH HILL (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall
    score 88/100):
    "Director Robert Wise isn't quite Alfred Hitchcock, but he does create a
    serviceable thriller that kept me entertained."

    THE LAST ROUND (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 86/100):
    "In keeping with his inspirations, Massi's take on the classic story is
    a much more character-driven piece than the majority of Italian crime
    thrillers, actively downplaying the violence and sleazy bloodshed to
    dwell on Marco's vengeful plot and his careful manipulation of the
    warring mafia families."

    THE LOSERS (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 81/100):
    "It's a tribute to everyone involved with The Losers that it works as
    well as it does."

    MARTIN'S BIG WORDS... AND MORE STORIES FROM THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
    TRADITION (SCHOLASTIC VIDEO COLLECTION) (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 85/100):
    "For the socially conscious four-year-old in your family, Scholastic has
    put together a sampling of educational stories, headlined by the man
    himself, Martin Luther King Jr."

    PRIME (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 87/100):
    "Love is all about learning and growing, and this movie understands this
    better than most romantic comedies. It's not quite up to Woody Allen's
    Annie Hall or Manhattan, but it almost gets there. Perhaps if it hadn't
    relied on a gimmick like the therapy sessions it could have been more
    powerful, but then we wouldn't have much of a comedic conflict to hang
    the plot on."

    STAR TREK: FAN COLLECTIVE: BORG (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 91/100):
    "Whatever the Borg are, or might be, as aliens, Star Trek ultimately
    turned them into yet another race than can be, in some future time,
    assimilated into the Federation. Of course, if we all get to live
    next door to a hot Borg like Seven of Nine, maybe that is not such a
    bad thing."

    UFO ULTRAMAIDEN VALKYRIE: BEDLAM, BATHHOUSE AND BEYOND (VOLUME 1)
    (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 78/100):
    "The Barbie-doll nudity of most anime is, frankly, creepy. But UFO
    Ultramaiden Valkyrie has the decency to remember the nipples."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/ufoultramaidenvalkyrievol1.php

    ULTIMATE BULLRIDING (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 90/100):
    "While I can certainly respect an hombre for staying atop a rampaging
    bull for eight seconds and acknowledge that he is more of a man than I
    can ever hope to be, the true electricity comes from the clips of dudes
    getting smoked."

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

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 85/100):
    "What Unfinished Business does well, it does very well. On the top of
    this list is the film's exploration of race issues in North America."
