    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of DAVID CASSIDY GREATEST HITS LIVE,
    HOUSE OF BAMBOO, IN REMEMBRANCE OF MARTIN, MANGO YELLOW, NOWHERE MAN,
    SARAH VAUGHAN AND OTHER JAZZ DIVAS, and SATANIC YUPPIES:


    DAVID CASSIDY GREATEST HITS LIVE (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 93/100):
    "Today, he proclaims he's very comfortable 'being David Cassidy' and
    stands confidently with an admirable amount of perspective and gratitude
    for all that he was, all that he has been, and all that he is now."

    HOUSE OF BAMBOO (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 79/100):
    "Fuller was obviously intrigued with The Street with No Name's concept
    of criminals abusing the combat skills that they had learned from their
    own country, but by simply recycling a decade-old plot without adding
    that extra punch that might set it apart from its peers, House of Bamboo
    is painfully average."

    IN REMEMBRANCE OF MARTIN (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 80/100):
    "This DVD is not a biography of the great civil rights leader; it is
    indeed a tribute. Aspects of King's life are of course discussed and
    highlighted, but if you're after a more orthodox approach to the man's
    upbringing, actions, and legacy, look elsewhere."

    MANGO YELLOW (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 82/100):
    "There is a touch of Altman in Mango Yellow, in the way that connections
    between the characters weave through violent and sexual melodrama. It
    has a flair and audacity that Altman could never dream of, touching
    something closer to Takashi Miike's wildly irreverent
    characterizations."

    NOWHERE MAN (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 82/100):
    "It's not so much a revenge saga as a 'give-me-back-my-frickin'-
    penis' saga."

    SARAH VAUGHAN AND OTHER JAZZ DIVAS (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 78/100):
    "All told, this disc presents a pleasant slate of pop jazz tunes with no
    frills. From Ella's bemused poise to Dorothy's erotic antics, there
    should be at least one tune that strikes your fancy."

    SATANIC YUPPIES (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 80/100):
    "What propels the flick is its unabashed embrace of its Z-grade
    pedigree. There are no pretenses here: The filmmakers want to make a
    cheeseball horror flick with T&A to spare, and the actors are more
    that willing to do their part."
