    BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (reviewed by Jennifer Malkowski, overall
    score 92/100):
    "The whole thing is a crazy, mixed-up showcase for every cultural cliche
    of the flower power generation. Ebert actually scripts lines like, 'Hey
    man, don't bogart that joint,' and 'I don't know, like, uh -- maybe all
    you need is love.'"

    GILGAMESH: ALL FALL DOWN (VOLUME 7) (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 95/100):
    "The final chapter of Gilgamesh is an utter mind bender."

    GUARDIAN OF THE REALM (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 71/100):
    "I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I was all set to launch
    into this movie, face off with its presumed horrible-ness, and corn-hole
    it to death in a review. The thing just looked so stupid. Yet lo and
    behold, Guardian of the Realm failed to be the glorious whipping boy I
    had it pegged to be."

    JIMI PLAYS MONTEREY / SHAKE! OTIS AT MONTEREY: CRITERION COLLECTION
    (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score 92/100):
    "Fans of music should consider this an entry level class in the Masters
    program of rock and soul, as it's a desert island pick to have."

    MONTERREY POP: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall
    score 99/100):
    "I have seen and enjoyed Monterey Pop many times, but until reviewing
    this disc I realized not only had I never truly experienced the flow of
    images, I'd never really heard the music, either. My God, what a sound!"

    ONE NIGHT STAND: JIM NORTON (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 90/100):
    "Very little is taboo in this set, and Norton shies away from nothing."

    PROJECT: VALKYRIE (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 82/100):
    "Thanks to the amount of narrative detail and in spite of the
    sequences that stink of simple self-indulgence, what could have been a
    horribly misguided venture into nonsensical nostalgia almost stands on
    its own. Almost."

    ROOM 6 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 76/100):
    "I never felt the impending dread that is so key to these types of
    films. It was just 'talking, talking, demons, Christine Taylor wailing,
    Jerry O'Connell looking shifty, more talking, demon, demon, talking, back-
    room lesbianism, talking.'"

    THINKING XXX (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 69/100):
    "Welcome to porn heaven!"

    VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 97/100):
    "I've been waiting years for Valley of the Dolls to hit DVD, because
    it's the precursor to cult classics of bad cinema such as the
    illustrious Showgirls, Two Moon Junction, television's Desperate
    Housewives, and about any campy exploitation classic you can throw out."
