    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of COCOON, SEALAB 2021: SEASON ONE,
    SHOAH, SLACKER: CRITERION COLLECTION, STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES,
    SEASON ONE, STAR TREK: VOYAGER, SEASON TWO, THE STAR WARS TRILOGY, and
    TREKKIES 2:


    COCOON (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 82/100):
    "You have Antareans who can traverse the galaxy, have lived 'forever,'
    and 100 centuries ago built a colony on an island on Earth, but they
    forget to bring their own boat when doing 'the most important thing
    they've ever done'? How very odd of those silly little aliens."

    SEALAB 2021: SEASON ONE (reviewed by Mike Pinsky, overall score 92/100):
    "And so came Adult Swim. Work therapy for the frayed nerves of the
    Williams Street team. After all, you have to keep animators busy, or
    they become like rabid animals, wandering the streets biting people. And
    they frown on that sort of thing in Atlanta, at least nowadays."

    SHOAH (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 100/100):
    "I think this documentary should be a required purchase for every school
    and library, so that as many people as possible can have an opportunity
    to experience it. The cost will be prohibitive for many potential
    viewers, but this is a film worth tracking down one way or another."

    SLACKER: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 97/100):
    "The 'think for yourself' ideal of Slacker goes much deeper than just a
    bunch of braggarts running around spouting off at the mouth. This movie
    is a direct attack on the concept of truth. The vast majority of the
    film's segments revolve around conspiracies, secrets, unanswered
    questions, insider information, and outrageous personal insights -- all
    of which fly directly in the face of the mainstream media and what they
    deem are the facts."

    STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES, SEASON ONE (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
    overall score 95/100):
    "Star Trek was not an infallible show -- not every episode was a gem,
    and the budget never really got bigger; the makers just had more
    material to reuse in clever ways as the show went on. However, it was a
    series that did a lot with what it had to work with, and understood that
    good science fiction is built on a solid foundation of good ideas and
    storytelling rather than flashy special effects."

    STAR TREK: VOYAGER, SEASON TWO (reviewed by Bryan Byun, overall
    score 80/100):
    "The second season of Voyager demonstrates some of the chief strengths
    of the series -- its willingness to tackle thorny moral and ethical
    issues with forthright honesty. 'Tuvix,' for instance, inspired some of
    the most heated philosophical arguments that I've ever seen among Trek
    fans, and its moral implications are hotly debated even today."

    THE STAR WARS TRILOGY (reviewed by a panel, overall score 93/100):
    "There is no question. No debate. No alternative. Darth Vader is
    unequivocally the silver screen's greatest bad-ass mofo. Forget for a
    moment that the supreme vision of galactic evil used to be a whiny
    little puke with a bowl cut. Just watch the dude traipse through the
    Holy Trilogy as the unholiest of bastards, leaving death, destruction,
    and one heck of a dysfunctional family in his wake and tell me this guy
    isn't untouchable in the world of movie villains."

    TREKKIES 2 (reviewed by Sandra Dozier, overall score 87/100):
    "Turns out, rabid fans in Germany, England, or Italy aren't that much
    different from Trekkers here in the good old U.S. of A. Just ask the guy
    who redesigned his entire flat as a ship's interior, or Klingolaus (the
    Klingon Santa), or that German guy who looks just like Mr. Spock and
    acts in fan films with his friends."
