    BELLE'S MAGICAL WORLD (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 77/100):
    "The scripts tend to be workmanlike kids' fare that both shows and tells
    of the virtues of cooperation, respect for others, and honest
    communication; occasionally, though, there are some welcome glints of
    the kind of witty humor and character byplay that were so evident in the
    feature film."

    DANGEROUS LIVING: COMING OUT IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD (reviewed by Brett
    Cullum, overall score 94/100):
    "If you enjoyed Before Stonewall and After Stonewall, then Dangerous
    Living -- Coming Out in the Developing World is an easy choice to
    complete the trilogy."

    DODGER BLUE: THE CHAMPIONSHIP YEARS (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 81/100):
    "The feature does spend time on some of the memorable individuals in the
    organization, notably Koufax and Lasorda. Tommy has spent over a half
    century with the organization, and lives and breathes the sport and does
    not hesitate to motivate the players or his friends."

    FIFA FEVER (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 88/100):
    "This set helps to bring out the best part of the game, the goals.
    Creative, powerful, sometimes jaw-dropping, many of the goals are the
    reason why soccer is often called 'the beautiful game.' "

    HAMOUN (reviewed by Bryan Byun, overall score 75/100):
    "For many viewers, Hamoun may be more interesting for its inside view of
    Iranian middle-class society than for its story, which follows a
    predictable path enlivened only by a rather odd and ambiguous
    conclusion. Hamoun's frantic groping for meaning is entertaining enough
    in its portrayal of spiritual confusion, but provides less real insight
    than confessional soul-searching."

    LAST STAND AT SABER RIVER (reviewed by Russell Engebretson, overall
    score 78/100):
    "There is a great story here struggling to get out, but as with many
    Elmore Leonard novels, a good deal was lost on the journey from printed
    page to celluloid, even though Leonard had a hand in writing the script.
    I felt a bit saddle weary before the movie's end."

    THE MANSON FAMILY: TWO-DISC SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Dan Mancini,
    overall score 83/100):
    "On its face, the idea of combining the true story of the Manson murders
    with exploitation flick style sounds tacky to the extreme, but writer-director-
    actor Jim VanBebber has achieved something extraordinary."

    SUN SEEKERS (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 82/100):
    "In truth, the history of the film is probably more fascinating than the
    film itself."

    TWISTED SISTER: LIVE AT WACKEN: THE REUNION (reviewed by Mac McEntire,
    overall score 85/100):
    "But the performance is only half of what's here. Cut in between concert
    segments is a documentary about the band's reunion. These are 'tell-all'
    interviews with band members, and they're not hesitant to dish out the
    dirt on why Twisted Sister broke up."

    WORLD POKER TOUR: BAD BOYS OF POKER (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 84/100):
    "Playing poker is a lot of fun. Watching it? Well, at first I thought
    that it would be pretty mind-numbing, but as I watched World Poker Tour:
    Bad Boys of Poker I found myself drawn into the game."
