    COLLECTION, MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, MCLINTOCK!, MISSION HILL: THE
    COMPLETE SERIES, THE POLAR EXPRESS: SPECIAL EDITION, STEALTH, and THE
    TALES OF HOFFMANN: CRITERION COLLECTION:


    BURIED ALIVE IN THE BLUES (reviewed by Neal Solon, overall score
    85/100):
    "They've played with the Rolling Stones, Canned Heat, Bob Dylan, Big
    Brother and the Holding Company, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and
    John Mayall, among others. The question, then, is how do these players
    fare without all of the deceased legends that they backed? The answer,
    not surprisingly, is that they manage."

    DEATH TO THE SUPERMODELS (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall
    score 30/100):
    "The gags in this movie give gross-out humor a bad name. The women
    in the cast give hot chicks a bad name. It's the kind of the movie
    that, when it's over, makes you wonder if there is any reason to go
    on living."

    HAPPY ENDINGS (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall score 80/100):
    "Now, imagine a sex scene with Tom Arnold that is not disgusting, or
    even disturbing, but actually sweet. Well, imagine no more my friends,
    because that scene is here."

    HONDO (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 86/100):
    "If you've not see a Wayne western before, or are fairly new to them,
    this may be the film for you. It's emotional, dramatic, action packed,
    and features a supporting cast that provides quality work and makes a
    good story even better."

    JERRY LEWIS: THE LEGENDARY JERRY COLLECTION (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
    overall score 75/100):
    "Ask anyone south the age of thirty if they've seen a Jerry Lewis movie
    and most likely they'll look at you as if your nose had been glued on
    backwards and upside down."

    MARCH OF THE PENGUINS (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall
    score 90/100):
    "Obviously, what you see in the resulting 80 minutes is penguins, and
    lots of them -- penguin closeups, penguin long shots, penguin overhead
    shots, penguins diving into the water, penguins getting out of the
    water, penguins grabbing a towel and building a warm fire..."

    MCLINTOCK! (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 88/100):
    "An enjoyable film with witty dialogue and some of the usual Wayne strut
    the American viewing public has grown to expect. Any Wayne fans will
    enjoy having this film on their shelves."

    MISSION HILL: THE COMPLETE SERIES (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 88/100):
    "Although it's only been a few years, I was concerned that it would
    already be dated. Sure enough, the show is a product of its time, but in
    a good way. Hidden behind all the laughs and the craziness are themes of
    change and growing up, and that includes the kind of growing up we all
    must do even in our 20s."

    THE POLAR EXPRESS: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 84/100):
    "The irony seems to be that the film's computer-generated characters may
    be what detract from any satisfying experience. There's no tangible
    connection to be made from such artificial settings. Or to put it
    another way, maybe I just don't believe."

    STEALTH (reviewed by Mike Jackson, overall score 63/100):
    "Each of the pilots is given the chance to wax philosophical about the
    nature of war, about good people doing bad things to achieve good ends,
    that sort of thing. It's just filler, something to pass the time and
    use less budget than flying and blowing shit up. They're about as
    convincing as arguments in a high school civics class, and about as
    successful at making the movie look smart as putting glasses on a dog.
    Groucho glasses."

    THE TALES OF HOFFMANN: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Joe Armenio,
    overall score 87/100):
    "One could say, in fact, that among Powell and Pressburger's films,
    Hoffmann is to The Red Shoes (1948) what Scorsese's Casino is to
    Goodfellas: both Hoffmann and Casino are lavish, mannerist exaggerations
    of the previous film's thematic, stylistic, and tonal preoccupations."
