    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, EYES
    WITHOUT A FACE: CRITERION COLLECTION, THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, THE
    HUNGER, IRON JAWED ANGELS, IT'S ALIVE, LATTER DAYS, and TOM DOWD AND THE
    LANGUAGE OF MUSIC:


    THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall
    score 75/100):
    "Ah, yes, it's The Day After Tomorrow, another big budget effects flick
    from director Roland Emmerich, the man who gave us Independence Day and
    Godzilla. So, what does he have in store for the world this time?"

    EYES WITHOUT A FACE: CRITERION COLLECTION (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
    overall score 96/100):
    "On the most fundamental basis, Eyes Without a Face is Frankenstein
    without the monster. Or maybe, it's more of an incidental look at the
    creation of a modern Prometheus in parenthood."

    THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall
    score 90/100):
    "Imagine the Marx Brothers starring in a vampire film produced by Hammer
    Studios, and you'll have a pretty good idea as to the nature of The
    Fearless Vampire Killers."

    THE HUNGER (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall score 87/100):
    "The Hunger has haunted me for years, and it ranks with Blade Runner as
    a film that I can watch again and again and never tire of seeing."

    IRON JAWED ANGELS (reviewed by Elizabeth Skipper, overall score 95/100):
    "With the use of recent music and modern cinematography, the filmmakers
    have done what Baz Luhrmann did for Shakespeare -- made it accessible
    and relevant to the young (and young-ish) people who need it most. They
    have given color to the sepia tones of history."

    IT'S ALIVE (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall score 91/100):
    "Add the uneven editing and the sometimes-clumsy camera work and
    you'll be tempted to dismiss this picture from the very first frames.
    Look closer, though, and you'll find a rather smart script at work
    here -- biting, even (no pun intended) -- bolstered by some truly
    respectable acting."

    LATTER DAYS (reviewed by George Hatch, overall score 100/100):
    "Latter Days takes a surprisingly intimate look at Mormons, and how
    their strict -- and, in my view, out-of-date and hypocritical --
    restrictions psychologically and emotionally affect the lives of two
    young men."

    TOM DOWD AND THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC (reviewed by Neal Solon, overall
    score 86/100):
    "Dowd isolates Clapton and Duane Allman's guitar parts on the recording.
    We hear the harmonics from Allman's slide guitar and the way they snake
    around Allman and Clapton's duet. We see the passion and the child-like
    excitement in the eyes of the aging Dowd, who is rediscovering a classic
    that he had a hand in forming. The result is spine tingling."
