    ONE, EDDIE PRESLEY: SPECIAL EDITION, FULL FRAME DOCUMENTARY SHORTS
    (VOLUME 2), LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, PETER PAN, SAVAGES, and THE
    WOLF MAN: THE LEGACY COLLECTION:


    BOY MEETS BOY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Michael Stailey,
    overall score 70/100):
    "Sitting down and watching the series on DVD, I quickly found myself
    sickened with the production team's subtle coercion and blatant
    disregard for human decency."

    CALL ME MADAM (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 84/100):
    "Call Me Madam's subject matter seems odd for a Hollywood musical, but
    with songs by Irving Berlin and solid performances from all involved, it
    turns out to be an entertaining little affair."

    THE DAME EDNA EXPERIENCE: THE COMPLETE SERIES ONE (reviewed by Amanda
    DeWees, overall score 95/100):
    "Vain, sunny of disposition, sweetly ruthless in cutting down rivals for
    our attention, and the master -- err, mistress -- of the throwaway put-
    down, Dame Edna is unlike anyone else."

    EDDIE PRESLEY: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 92/100):
    "It's so close to perfect, so near to overcoming its low-budget
    obstacles and turning into something truly classic, that when Eddie
    Presley fails to fulfill its promise, you want to jump into the movie
    and nudge it forward, giving it that final push into the realm of
    transcendence."

    FULL FRAME DOCUMENTARY SHORTS (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 83/100):
    "But perhaps nowhere has the diamond-encrusted power of the Digital
    Versatile Disc been better exploited than in the realm of the
    documentary. This mostly-ignored medium, resigned to special festivals
    and little-seen PBS screenings, has found happy hospice on the modern
    home theater format."

    LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall
    score 78/100):
    "Long Day's Journey Into Night is a long, cloistered four-act play, and
    director Sidney Lumet's (12 Angry Men, Serpico) film adaptation is
    faithful to both the language and staging. This is not a film that opens
    up its source, reinventing it as something fundamentally cinematic."

    PETER PAN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 91/100):
    "Many adults, especially those that grew up reading fantasy, will find
    that Peter Pan raises fond memories of that period of their own lives."

    SAVAGES (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 76/100):
    "Unfortunately, because of the film's self-awareness, it can become
    arch, as when it draws our attention for the umpty-jillionth time to the
    savagery underlying supposedly civilized behavior, as when affronted
    women refer to men as 'beasts.'"

    THE WOLF MAN: THE LEGACY COLLECTION (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 86/100):
    "No one ever worried that they might suddenly turn into Frankenstein's
    Monster, but after leaving the theater on a night with a full moon, I'll
    bet more than one Wolf Man viewer checked the back of their hand for
    traces of bristly hair."
