    BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD: THE MIKE JUDGE COLLECTION: VOLUME ONE (reviewed by
    Brett Cullum, overall score 88/100):
    "Beavis and Butthead: The Mike Judge Collection -- Volume One presents
    the short cartoons, but not the entire episode. Missing are the video
    commentaries, which were often the funniest part of the show. They do
    include 11 videos in this format on the third disc, but it seems short.
    I'd like to see more of these on future sets, but seems rights issues
    make it cost prohibitive."

    BOLLYWOOD DREAMS (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall score 83/100):
    "Hollywood doesn't make movies like this, but it used to. The
    exaggerated expressions and gestures remind me of Hollywood's silent
    era; the throwbacks to Technicolor musicals (the DVD case compares this
    one to Singing in the Rain, with good reason) are even more obvious."

    THE DEVIL'S REJECTS: UNRATED EDITION (reviewed by Patrick Naugle,
    overall score 82/100):
    "The Devil's Rejects is a bloody mess of a movie. There are shootings,
    impalings, multiple deaths, and scenes of torture and mutilation that
    would make Ed Gein flinch. This movie is not a pretty sight."

    FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY / CHALLENGE OF THE TIGER (reviewed by David
    Johnson, overall score 80/100):
    "What a great, fun, profoundly weird movie. A far-out take on James Bond
    films (featuring strangely similar music), For Your Height Only is
    hilarious -- but I'm not entirely sure it was supposed to be a comedy."

    IMAGINING ARGENTINA (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 80/100):
    "The fact that Carlos can 'see' what is happening to various members of
    the 'disappeared' is one of the weirdest ways of presenting the pain of
    a country's cruel past ever created. The narrative really doesn't need
    this ditzy device -- a standard switch back-and-forth behind Cecilia's
    trials and Carlos's search would have been perfectly fine."

    THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Cynthia
    Boris, overall score 90/100):
    "Though the show appears to be about a famous singing group, it's really
    about a family who just happens to be famous, which is what makes the
    show quirky and different from your average family sitcom. Sure, they
    have their showbiz problems, like the time the skunk sneaked on to the
    tour bus or when they played host to a contest-winning fan. But they
    also had the typical suburban sitcom problems such as tonsils that must
    come out, teenagers with impossible crushes, and the tribulations of
    being a single parent."

    PLAGA ZOMBIE: MUTANT ZONE (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score
    98/100):
    "This bravado brainchild of Argentinean auteurs Pablo Pares and Hernan
    Saez is like watching Peter Jackson's private personal video
    experiments, or Sam Raimi's first forays into Evil Dead-based fright."

    SACRED FLESH (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 84/100):
    "Do all of these soft-core shenanigans, modern touches, and highbrow
    religious ruminations meld into a cohesive movie? Not quite. But they do
    meld into a memorable one that will single-handedly resuscitate the
    nunsploitation genre. I mean that in a good way."

    WOMEN'S PRISON MASSACRE: UNCUT EDITION (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 80/100):
    "Pure, unapologetic trash. That's what this film is. And it makes no
    excuses for its position high atop the Sleaze Barometer. Whatever you're
    expecting to get with a film titled Women's Prison Massacre is what
    you're likely to get."

    YES (reviewed by Joe Armenio, overall score 84/100):
    "Most of the writing is quite good, and one set piece, Sheila Hancock's
    internal deathbed monologue, is truly majestic. He and She's amorous
    wine bar exchange is intended to be another bravura passage, but sounds
    like a passage from a breathless, high-toned romance novel, intoned with
    a deadly humorlessness."
