    WWIII TOUR 2003, THE PERFECT SCORE, SHAOLIN ULYSSES: KUNG FU MONKS IN
    AMERICA, A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM, THE STATEMENT, and WORLD WAR II: ROAD
    TO VICTORY:


    THE CHAPLIN REVUE (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 97/100):
    "The Chaplin Revue remains a quagmire in Chaplin's canon. While it was
    great to have three of his finest shorts compiled into a feature film,
    some purists complained that the new format was a mere bastardization of
    the original shorts."

    FANGORIA: BLOOD DRIVE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 88/100):
    "For these homemade movies, it's good to have no dialogue, especially no
    dialogue spoken by non-actors."

    THE GOLDEN GONG: THE STORY OF RANK FILMS (reviewed by George Hatch,
    overall score 87/100):
    "The Golden Gong: The Story of Rank Films, 'British Cinema's Legendary
    Studio,' is a fascinating and informative documentary about J. Arthur
    Rank, a flour mogul and devout Methodist, who began putting his millions
    into short films with religious themes."

    GROWIN' A BEARD (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 92/100):
    "I canOt stop gushing about this set. GrowinO a Beard is why DVDs were
    made: great packaging and interface and bursting with extras."

    KMFDM WWIII TOUR 2003 (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 95/100):
    "I would say if you are a fan of KMFDM or Industrial Goth this is a no-
    brainer. If you're unsure of or unfamiliar with the band, this is a good
    starting place. But if tattoos, black, pleather, cigarettes, and German
    lyrics turn you off then veer away and check out Britney's 'In The Zone'
    collection."

    THE PERFECT SCORE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 78/100):
    "I wanted to like the movie for its motivations, but the finished
    product proved to be only slightly more entertaining than taking the
    actual S.A.T."

    SHAOLIN ULYSSES: KUNG FU MONKS IN AMERICA (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 87/100):
    "The Iron Crotch!!! How awesome is that?! Included is actual footage of
    the Iron Crotch in action, with one guy relentlessly kicking another guy
    squarely in his groin."

    A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 88/100):
    "Frankly, I felt Graham went cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs too fast. It sure
    was amusing to watch, but nonetheless, disbelief needed to be suspended
    mightily."

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

    THE STATEMENT (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 90/100):
    "Everything about this adaptation of a Brian Moore novel works. It is a
    suspenseful thriller, built on cat-and-mouse games and puzzles rather
    than flashy visuals and gore. It is a vivid character study of a man who
    may or may not be evil incarnate. In fact, the film sets up the question
    of who really is the villain here -- the criminal in hiding or the
    people trying to capture him."

    WORLD WAR II: ROAD TO VICTORY (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 87/100):
    "So a while ago there was this jerk named Hitler and he waged this
    pretty insane war with some of his friends, but he eventually got his
    ass kicked and then he shot himself."
