    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BEAR CUB, BIRTH (2004), BRIAN
    WILSON PRESENTS SMILE, CALL ME: THE RISE AND FALL OF HEIDI FLEISS,
    DARKNESS: UNRATED EDITION, FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR, L'ARGENT, THE QUICK
    AND DIRTY GUIDE TO SALSA: PART TWO: INTERMEDIATE, and TEAM AMERICA:
    WORLD POLICE: UNCENSORED AND UNRATED SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION:


    BEAR CUB (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 93/100):
    "All of these people are doing the best they can, and what they think is
    right. The film does not pass judgment on any of its characters, no
    matter what their lifestyle or beliefs dictate. Bear Cub is a three-
    dimensional film in emotional terms. It looks at every situation from
    all angles, and amazingly offers 360 degree views of all parties
    involved."

    BIRTH (2004) (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 81/100):
    "A sustained shot of Kidman's face during a concert tells an entire
    story, as the discordant music coincides with the discordant thoughts
    flitting across her face. This is the moment when she begins to believe
    in Sean, and the actress conveys the progression from fragile doubt to
    grief-tinged belief without words."

    BRIAN WILSON PRESENTS SMILE (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 93/100):
    "'Good Vibrations' might be a celebratory gospel standard, if it were
    not mistaken for mere white-bread surf music."

    CALL ME: THE RISE AND FALL OF HEIDI FLEISS (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 70/100):
    "It wants to be a daring tell-all biopic, but it reveals little and is
    saddled with a lead who isn't ready to do the dirty work. But it's not
    all bad news. The pace is super-quick, and the short run time keeps the
    energy flying and the squeals coming as they move from one camp-filled
    sequence to the next. It goes down easy like a bad pizza, and even
    though it's forgettable there is a gleeful spirit to the tale that is
    hard to hate."

    DARKNESS: UNRATED EDITION (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 70/100):
    "Once the final credits roll, however, all the fear and intensity fades.
    Instead, viewers will instantly pick the movie apart, wondering why
    certain events happened and why characters acted the way they did. It's
    all scares, but not much plot."

    FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
    88/100):
    "I had some concerns about revisiting the adventures of Max and David
    when this DVD arrived. Could it in fact measure up to the warm memories
    I had from way back when? In a word: yes!"

    L'ARGENT (reviewed by Joe Armenio, overall score 97/100):
    "The film's final sequence, in which he encounters a family of 'physical
    and emotional cripples,' as Jones puts it, run without complaint by a
    brittle and damaged but deeply compassionate woman who offers Yvon
    refuge, is among the deepest and ultimately most devastating passages in
    all of cinema."

    THE QUICK AND DIRTY GUIDE TO SALSA: PART TWO: INTERMEDIATE (reviewed by
    Diane Wild, overall score 86/100):
    "With a straightforward attitude and no dazzling effects, they
    demonstrate the steps with little introduction. The instruction goes by
    quickly, which has the benefit of allowing them to cover a lot of steps,
    but you'll likely need to use your skip buttons to go over the steps
    multiple times before you can match Gigi and Pedro's pizzazz."

    TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE: UNCENSORED AND UNRATED SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S
    EDITION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 94/100):
    "The thought of a couple of dolls throwing piss on each other is just
    too friggin' comical. This is the anarchic ace up the sleeve of every
    member of the marionette menagerie. Stick them in any situation, and the
    giggles just grow and grow. Trey Parker and Matt Stone understood this
    concept all too well."
