    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BULGARIAN LOVERS, CANDY LAND: THE
    GREAT LOLLIPOP ADVENTURE, COMBINATION PLATTER, DUNSMORE, GAS, LOOK WHO'S
    TALKING DVD COLLECTION, OUT OF REACH, and POTLUCK:


    BULGARIAN LOVERS (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 65/100):
    "Bulgarian Lovers plays out like one of those novels in which the first
    chapter is written by a popular crime writer, who then passes it along
    to others, each of whom has to extend the initial idea and add a new
    element in his or her chapter."

    CANDY LAND: THE GREAT LOLLIPOP ADVENTURE (reviewed by Lacey Worrell,
    overall score 65/100):
    "Fortunately, there is nothing so offensive that an adult can't leave
    the room for a few minutes to do some dishes or vacuum -- which, let's
    face it, is the central benefit of parking the kids in front of the
    television for an hour."

    COMBINATION PLATTER (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 73/100):
    "Chan tries to walk the fine line between witty, stylized dialogue and
    closely-observed naturalism, but frequently fails. Where he succeeds is
    the complexity with which he examines barriers in culture and
    communication, and the discomfort people feel in being cut out of
    conversations, unable to connect with the people around them in the most
    basic way."

    DUNSMORE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall score 70/100):
    "Director Peter Spirer is best known for his hip-hop documentaries,
    including Rhyme & Reason, but here he makes a bold foray into the
    world of dramatic features with a well-acted, gritty little picture that
    turns an eye on small town America to examine the politics of power."

    GAS (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall score 73/100):
    "In the end, it turns to a weird sort of bastardization of The Partridge
    Family episode 'Soul Club,' featuring Richard Pryor, Louis Gossett, Jr.,
    and a poorly lip-synched performance atop a makeshift stage. Eccch!"

    LOOK WHO'S TALKING DVD COLLECTION (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 73/100):
    "The first one's good, the second one's kind of good, the last one
    blows. And they're not even entirely kid-friendly!"

    OUT OF REACH (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 35/100):
    "I never thought I would live to see such a time, but it actually
    happened: I had some trouble following the plot of a Steven Seagal
    movie. I'm pretty sure I know what was happening in Mulholland Drive,
    and I had The Usual Suspects figured out about halfway through, but I'm
    a little fuzzy on some of the things going on in Out of Reach."

    POTLUCK (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 38/100):
    "The result is the sort of mess you might well expect a bunch of stoners
    to come up with; it's contrived, with the thinnest of possible plots,
    badly acted, and silly. Granted, this does not really distinguish
    Potluck from the majority of crap foisted on the moviegoing public, but
    at least the Hollywood machine tries to make stuff that looks pretty."
