    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of CARRY ON LAUGHING, CASEY KASEM'S
    ROCK 'N' ROLL GOLDMINE, FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED, THE GODS MUST BE
    CRAZY DUOLOGY, LEAVING METROPOLIS, MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS... AND MORE
    ROBERT MCCLOSKEY STORIES, PIGALLE, THE PRISONER, RUDE BOY, and STREGA
    NONA... AND MORE CALDECOTT AWARD-WINNING FOLK TALES:


    CARRY ON LAUGHING (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 35/100):
    "Carry On Laughing makes Three's Company seem like Shakespeare, finds a
    way to convert burlesque into innovative inspiration, and turns the
    classic '70s turd Love, American Style into virtual hardcore porn."

    CASEY KASEM'S ROCK 'N' ROLL GOLDMINE (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall
    score 50/100):
    "Such a tumultuous period should make for a fascinating documentary,
    yes? Unfortunately for fans of '60s music and culture, Casey Kasem's
    Rock 'n' Roll Goldmine offers only a weak examination of the era."

    FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 62/100):
    "Like many of my favorite horror movies, Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed
    may be something you watched as a kid and have grown to love, no matter
    how mediocre it is; how else can I explain my coddling of such films
    like The Return of the Living Dead Part II and The Mangler?"

    THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY DUOLOGY (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 62/100):
    "I wish I could muster up more praise for these films, but to do so
    would only prove this reviewer must be crazy."

    LEAVING METROPOLIS (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 74/100):
    "Canadian cinema has a quirky freshness that draws me in and makes me
    want to see what will become of its outrageous characters. Leaving
    Metropolis explores stylized but meaningful relationships with the key
    people in David's life. Each conversation is laden with emotional
    weight, which gives the movie a necessary dose of credibility."

    MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS... AND MORE ROBERT MCCLOSKEY STORIES (reviewed by
    Rob Lineberger, overall score 55/100):
    "After five minutes of this DVD, I too was squirming in my seat and
    wistfully eyeing that feather duster."

    PIGALLE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 46/100):
    "Everyone in Pigalle acts like their mother just died."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/pigalle.php

    THE PRISONER (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 30/100):
    "Peter Glenville's 1955 British drama The Prisoner could not be
    timelier. It is useful for encouraging debate, which is often
    discouraged these days."

    RUDE BOY (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 72/100):
    "There are two movies battling head to head in Rude Boy, one as powerful
    and real as a Chuck D lyric, the other as lame and ludicrous as a
    comeback tour for Sir Mix-a-Lot."

    STREGA NONA... AND MORE CALDECOTT AWARD-WINNING FOLK TALES (reviewed by
    Rob Lineberger, overall score 65/100):
    "As an artist and animation lover, I'm familiar with current animation
    capabilities. When I view the abjectly crude animation presented in this
    DVD, not only do I think to myself 'This looks like crap,' but I fully
    realize how easily the animation could be improved."
