    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BAD DREAMS, DAZED AND CONFUSED:
    CRITERION COLLECTION, THE PRODUCERS (2005), SCRUBS: THE COMPLETE THIRD
    SEASON, SHOOTING LIVIEN, STAR TREK: FAN COLLECTIVE: TIME TRAVEL, TOUS
    LES MATINS DU MONDE, TRAINING DAY (HD DVD), and UNFORGIVEN (HD DVD):


    BAD DREAMS (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 96/100):
    "If you're expecting a classic of '80s horror, there's a reason why Bad
    Dreams is not on the tip of your tongue. But if you want to recapture
    the illicit thrill of sprawling out on the pile carpet in front of the
    TV in the rec room, watching R movies while your friend's parents sleep
    in blissful ignorance, Bad Dreams is the ticket."

    DAZED AND CONFUSED: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Brendan Babish,
    overall score 94/100):
    "Dazed and Confused gets nearly everything right. Not just the obvious
    facts of youth: old kids bully younger ones; teenagers resent authority;
    alcohol is a necessity for all gatherings. This is the easy stuff. But
    Dazed and Confused nails the minutiae of teenage ennui."

    THE PRODUCERS (2005) (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 70/100):
    "I loved the musical, so I of course bought the soundtrack, watched the
    original movie, and eagerly awaited this version of the story. I should
    have skipped that last one."

    SCRUBS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 94/100):
    "In the third season, there is a noticeable shift towards a more
    humorous, lighter style of writing, with more abstract jokes and
    buffoonery. This has two effects: it makes the show much more hilarious
    to watch, and when the dramatic episodes do emerge, they hit even
    harder, amplified by the contrast."

    SHOOTING LIVIEN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 83/100):
    "My disappointments come from limitations of the concept, not the talent
    and effort that went into making the film."

    STAR TREK: FAN COLLECTIVE: TIME TRAVEL (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall
    score 89/100):
    "The original series tried to create an aesthetic experience first
    and layered its intellectual inquiries inside that (at least in the
    better episodes). Time travel was an excuse for Kirk and company to
    get in trouble. 'Cause and Effect' has all the adventure of doing a
    sudoku puzzle."

    TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score
    90/100):
    " Sainte-Colombe is a bundle of raw but sublimated emotions. Marielle's
    use of his body is exquisite, his movements slow and deliberate as if
    every moment of his existence requires effort. Stripped of histrionics
    and sentimentality, Marielle's performance is surprisingly powerful,
    giving viewers a full sense of the weight of the man's sorrow."

    TRAINING DAY (HD DVD) (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 84/100):
    "The image is razor sharp, and although it does not exhibit as much
    depth as other HD-DVDs, it doesn't have to. All the action is between
    the leads, so get used to their facial hair and pore structure (did I
    just say that?)."

    UNFORGIVEN (HD DVD) (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 95/100):
    "The film is an excellent look at a man's past, and that as much as he
    tries to run away from it, it's always around the corner, ready to stare
    him in the face."
