    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BREASTS: A DOCUMENTARY, THE DARK
    (2005), GARUDA, NAKED IN THE 21ST CENTURY: SPECIAL EDITION, PLYMPTOONS:
    THE COMPLETE EARLY WORKS OF BILL PLYMPTON, SHAQUILLE O'NEAL: LIKE NO
    OTHER, STONE PILLOW, and THE WARRIOR:


    BREASTS: A DOCUMENTARY (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score
    70/100):
    "You might have noticed that Breasts: A Documentary has the word
    'breasts' in the title. This means that search engine spiders (and
    even real, live web surfers) are going to be all over this review like
    ants on spilled jam. It will quickly become the most popular DVD
    Verdict review of all time. I can sit back and watch the clicks roll
    in (and surely win a prize of some kind). See, it worked -- you're
    here, aren't you?"

    THE DARK (2005) (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 60/100):
    "Now that I've explained just how dull it is, I don't know what else
    to say about The Dark, other than you know you're in trouble when the
    only marginally scary scene in a horror movie involves a flock of
    stampeding sheep."

    GARUDA (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall score 64/100):
    "The amount of groan-worthy moments in the first five minutes of Garuda
    alone has to set some new kind of cinematic record. The film not only
    fails to make any sense, but it actually wallows in its own asinine
    nature, focusing on cramming as many action film cliches into a scene as
    possible."

    NAKED IN THE 21ST CENTURY: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Neal Masri,
    overall score 50/100):
    "It is an unfortunate fact of life that the vast majority of people
    who embrace the nudist lifestyle are people whom you would not want to
    see naked."

    PLYMPTOONS: THE COMPLETE EARLY WORKS OF BILL PLYMPTON (reviewed by Rob
    Lineberger, overall score 75/100):
    "Plympton's distinctive style has graced commercials, MTV, the Academy
    Awards, porn mags, respected mags, and many other media outlets. He is
    subversive and mainstream, funny and biting. Only one thing is certain:
    When you see his 6 frame-per-second, jittery, cross-hatched animations,
    your mind is going to be bent a little bit."

    SHAQUILLE O'NEAL: LIKE NO OTHER (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 72/100):
    "Filled with highlights of Shaq's career and interviews with those who
    have played with and against him, this feature takes a look at some of
    the key moments in his career as well. His early career playoff
    disappointments are talked about, but not so much because, hey, it's his
    video, so he can do what he wants."

    STONE PILLOW (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 50/100):
    "Do I wag my finger at the late, great Lucille Ball -- revered Queen of
    Television -- for involving herself with this distressingly
    miscalculated 'drama' about the homeless? Or do I let her slide because
    she is, after all, the late, great Lucille Ball -- revered Queen of
    Television -- and this was her final film? After reviewing my notes, I
    would say a good finger wagging is in order."

    THE WARRIOR (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 70/100):
    "Confusing and convoluted setup aside, The Warrior is actually a slick,
    fast-paced action movie that will appeal to fans of both historical
    epics and westerns."
