    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of BRIEF CROSSING, CATCH THAT KID,
    DARK SHADOWS: DVD COLLECTION ELEVEN, GOODBYE, COLUMBUS, THE JETSONS: THE
    COMPLETE FIRST SEASON, MILLENNIUM MAMBO, MR. KLEIN, PELLE THE CONQUEROR,
    TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, and ZATOICHI: THE
    FESTIVAL OF FIRE:


    BRIEF CROSSING (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 91/100):
    "What led to its unpopularity was the dialogue: talking, talking, ever
    more talking about penises and despair and vaginas and angst until we
    thought our brains couldn't take another fatalistic sexual analogy.
    French cinema tends to be philosophically dense, but Romance is a tier
    unto itself."

    CATCH THAT KID (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 78/100):
    "Although it's probably not destined to become a perennial favorite in
    millions of homes around the world, Catch That Kid is a reasonably fun
    little family film."

    DARK SHADOWS: DVD COLLECTION ELEVEN (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall
    score 95/100):
    "With more than a year's worth of episodes behind them, the creative
    team was at its peak. There is greater sense of plotting and suspense in
    these forty episodes than ever before."

    GOODBYE, COLUMBUS (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 80/100):
    "It's easy to argue that Goodbye, Columbus is a film about how free love
    and available intercourse ruins the budding relationship between a
    directionless young man and an overprivileged young lady, but there is
    more to the movie than this. Too bad it has to climb through so many
    cliched '60s cinema contrivances to make its point."

    THE JETSONS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (reviewed by Bill Treadway,
    overall score 85/100):
    "If I wanted to see clips from assorted episodes tacked together with
    pedestrian narration, I'd go to a museum."

    MILLENNIUM MAMBO (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 81/100):
    "These scenes are familiar to anyone who has witnessed a relationship
    like this, which is probably most of us. Millennium Mambo explores why
    women stay in relationships like that, even when they can't vocalize it
    themselves."

    MR. KLEIN (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 75/100):
    "Trying for a World War II cautionary tale, but ending up with a pseudo-
    New Wave impressionistic morality play, this muddled movie can't quite
    figure out what it's trying to accomplish."

    PELLE THE CONQUEROR (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall score 77/100):
    "Pelle the Conqueror is a powerful yet wholly depressing account of
    human suffering and injustice."

    TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (reviewed by Adam
    Arseneau, overall score 90/100):
    "Irritatingly, every episode has the exact same score, and each
    character basically has the same bit of entrance music, so after ten
    episodes or so, your brain has simply had enough of the music. It gets
    on your nerves the way tiny little elves with pick-axes get on your
    nerves, by climbing into your ears at night and chopping away at your
    central nervous system. I swear this happens."

    ZATOICHI: THE FESTIVAL OF FIRE (reviewed by Neil Dorsett, overall
    score 84/100):
    "No full frontal nudity, of course, as the movie plays games with the
    grand tradition of convenient genital obfuscation."
