    AMERICAN WOMEN (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 69/100):

    contents will be seriously disappointed."

    ANYTHING GOES (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 55/100):
    "I can think of a few four-letter words to describe this Bing
    Crosby/Donald O'Connor musical, which had the audacity to water down
    Cole Porter's sly, naughty lyrics and bore me to tears with its familiar
    showbiz shenanigans and limp production numbers."

    DA VINCI AND THE CODE HE LIVED BY (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 65/100):
    "The producers were looking to tell Leonardo's story on an epic scale,
    which apparently to them means painting the hero as one of the
    Sopranos."

    EVIL BREED: THE LEGEND OF SAMHAIN (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway,
    overall score 30/100):
    "Would a class action suit against the producers be out of the question?
    I'm up for it if anybody else is."

    HERE COME THE TIGERS (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 59/100):
    "Here Come the Tigers is a heartless -- even cynical -- take on the
    Cinderella sports team cliche that amounts to one big cinematic
    strike out."

    HI HI PUFFY AMIYUMI: LET'S GO! (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall
    score 59/100):
    "Parents, you can put on the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi DVD and walk away
    secure that there won't be any inappropriate sexual innuendos or
    remotely lifelike violence. This is important to know, because -- trust
    me on this -- you are going to want to walk away."

    LIVE FREAKY! DIE FREAKY! (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score
    66/100):
    "If you're a fan of punk rock aesthetics, you'll find Live Freaky! Die
    Freaky! right up your alley. The humor is out there, so sensitive types
    will find it offensive and hideously grotesque."

    THE MAN (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 55/100):
    "A special nod goes to director Les Mayfield, who shows a complete lack
    of inspiration aside from just being there to pick up his paycheck."

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

    RAMPAGE: THE HILLSIDE STRANGLER MURDERS (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 70/100):
    "So, if you can overcome the brain-stabbing camera work, a decent
    psychological screw-job of a film awaits you. But, kids, I'm telling
    you: it's a lot to overcome."

    SEX: LIFE IN L.A. PART 2: CYCLES OF PORN (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 69/100):
    "Half the film details what life is like for several of the subjects
    seen in the first film, Sex -- Life in L.A., who are out of the
    business, and the other half concerns several guys currently working in
    the industry. As you can imagine, a lot has changed since 1997 when the
    first film was started. No need to have seen the first installment, but
    it will help you be familiar with the older subjects like Cole Tucker
    and Kevin Kramer. Fortunately this second chapter gives you enough of
    their backstory to catch up easily."

    SEXUAL INTELLIGENCE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 69/100):
    "Honestly, I was hoping for tips and hints about how to do things better
    in bed. Instead, I got a lot of lip service about ancient Roman penis
    worship, and legends about Cupid and Psyche. It's all slightly
    interesting, but not exactly what I was expecting."

    THE STATIONMASTER'S WIFE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 58/100):
    "It is a cramped mess of uninteresting human disarray. If you still care
    about any of these characters by the time the end credits show up, you
    have more empathy and patience than I."
