    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BLUE SPRING, BOX 507, DUMMY,
    HISTORY OF THE '80S, PEOPLE I KNOW, PROJECT GREENLIGHT: THE COMPLETE
    SECOND SEASON, and STAY HUNGRY:


    BLUE SPRING (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 92/100):
    "Blue Spring was nothing like I expected it to be when I sat down to
    watch it, and I was amazed to find it to be even better than I had
    hoped. This is a hidden gem of a movie. It shocks, entertains and has
    something to say -- all in under an hour and a half."

    BOX 507 (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 76/100):
    "Like the other titles I have seen in the International Film Festival
    series, Box 507 is a promising but ultimately disappointing film given a
    second-rate digital treatment. Unlike the others, though, I would
    recommend this as a rental for fans of the genre."

    DUMMY (reviewed by Elizabeth Skipper, overall score 94/100):
    "Let me say this up front, to assuage your fears: Dummy, despite
    being a movie about a ventriloquist and his dummy, is not at all
    cheesy. No, really."

    HISTORY OF THE '80S (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 80/100):
    "I miss the '80s if only because they seem in hindsight like a simpler
    time than the one we live in now. Yet this set reminds me they weren't
    easier; it was me who was young and impressionable. If you really pay
    attention, the '80s were sometimes bleak and hard for many people. Yet
    we now seem to be repeating them in an odd way."

    PEOPLE I KNOW (reviewed by Patrick Bromley, overall score 81/100):
    "Like the current output of his '70s equal/rival, Robert De Niro, Pacino
    seems to be phoning it in these days -- though I'm the first to admit
    that even a phoned-in performance by Al Pacino is going to be better
    than a lot of actors working on all cylinders."

    PROJECT GREENLIGHT: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Patrick
    Bromley, overall score 91/100):
    "Having said all of this, I will now confess that when it's in its
    seasonal run, HBO's Project Greenlight is my favorite show on TV. This
    is not to say that it's the best show -- one of HBO's other series
    probably deserves that prize -- but it's the one from which I derive the
    most enjoyment; I don't so much watch it as I am addicted to it."

    STAY HUNGRY (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 90/100):
    "Insight and resolutions come from the unlikeliest sources. When Santo
    tells Craig, 'You can't grow without feeling the burn,' he isn't
    simply referring to muscle development. Craig's compromises form the
    basis of burgeoning relationships with the kind of people he never
    even knew existed."
