    CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (reviewed by Brendan Babish, overall score
    92/100):
    "While provocative storylines may have turned off conventional viewers
    in 1958, in the 21st century it is the movie's honest depiction of these
    very human situations that keep it relevant."

    CLASSIC MUSICALS FROM THE DREAM FACTORY (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall
    score 84/100):
    "That's the magic of MGM's musicals. What other class of film is so
    transporting, so able to make you forget that there's anything else in
    the world while you're watching it?"

    DORIAN BLUES (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 89/100):
    "Think about all the movies where someone realizes they are gay, or has
    to deal with delivering the news to family or friends. It is a defining
    moment, but I wish we could get some stories about well-adjusted men
    above thirty just to shake things up a bit."

    HILL STREET BLUES: SEASON TWO (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall
    score 88/100):
    "There is a reason why Conrad said 'Let's roll' before saying five of
    the most memorable words in television history. The fact is that there
    were so many characters, the viewer could not help but identify with at
    least one of them over the course of the show's life. With everyone
    caring about the officers in the Hill Street precinct, 'Let's roll' was
    not only for them, but for us as well."

    LAST HOLIDAY (2005) (reviewed by Jonathan Weiss, overall score 85/100):
    "Think the previously mentioned Joe Versus The Volcano without the
    volcano combined with Pretty Woman without the prostitutes and you've
    got Last Holiday."

    LIZA WITH A Z!: COLLECTOR'S EDITION (reviewed by Jonathan Weiss, overall
    score 90/100):
    "Before she became known for marrying men of questionable sexuality and
    before most people thought of her as a bloated, sauced up druggy, Liza
    Minnelli was the child of Hollywood Royalty."

    MICHAEL PALIN'S SAHARA (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall
    score 92/100):
    "When Palin was cutting up with the Pythons, he used laughter as a sharp
    edged, cutting weapon. As a TV traveler, Palin's comic knife has been
    forged into a tool that, used gently, can show us the world and break
    down barriers."

    RED SOX VS. YANKEES: THE ULTIMATE RIVALRY (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 88/100):
    "For such a divisive and compelling subject like the vaunted Sox/Yanks
    rivalry, the producers have mined the conflict well and ended up
    capturing the essence of the feud. By essence, I of course mean 'hatred
    with the fire of a thousand suns.'"

    REMINGTON STEELE: SEASON THREE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 89/100):
    "On the heels of the second season's major retooling of the show,
    Remington Steele's third year on NBC was its finest hour, the only time
    the well-remembered mystery program cracked Neilsen's Top 25."

    TRISTAN + ISOLDE (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall score 85/100):
    "There is one weak link in the romantic triangle at the core of this
    film, and that is James Franco. He is simply not convincing and lacks
    conviction; anyone who can fail to muster conviction or a believable
    performance when faced with a woman like Sophia Myles simply isn't
    trying at all, and might possibly be dead."
