    SWORD IS DRAWN, and WHITE DRAGON:


    ASYLUM (2005) (reviewed by Michael Rankins, overall score 72/100):
    "I didn't mind that the people in Asylum were crazy, only that they
    were dull."

    CISCO PIKE (reviewed by Geoffrey Miller, overall score 80/100):
    "Tons of pot? Disdain for squares? A prolonged, 'maaaaan,' appended to
    the end of every sentence? Yeah, Cisco Pike is a hippie flick."

    DORA THE EXPLORER: SAVE THE DAY (reviewed by Jonathan Weiss, overall
    score 76/100):
    "It's hard to write a review before you know where you need to go. So
    let's stop and think...whom do we ask for help when we don't know
    which way to go? (PAUSE) The Map! Will you check the Map to find out
    how to write this review? Great! But first you have to say Map.
    (PAUSE) Louder!"

    MY BIG FAT INDEPENDENT MOVIE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 78/100):
    "If you're going to spoof the independent film scene, you could stand to
    make things more subtle and less obvious. Why take the low road of Scary
    Movie when you could assemble something more along the lines of the sly
    wit of Waiting For Guffman?"

    NAUGHTY NUDES OF THE 1960S (reviewed by Kerry Birmingham, overall
    score 65/100):
    "With the period clothes, haircuts, and physiques, it often has
    the feeling of finding your grandparents' homemade porn. (This
    would be bad.)"

    THE SEDUCTION OF A NERD (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score
    67/100):
    "By this point I had no idea what was going on."

    TWO FOR THE MONEY (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 75/100):
    "I found only one thing terribly engaging about Two for the Money: the
    world of sports betting. Aside from that aspect, this film is pretty
    much boilerplate innocent-guy-gets-corrupted-and-finds-his-way-back
    fare. It's not bad, but there's nothing here you haven't seen before."

    WHEN THE LAST SWORD IS DRAWN (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 80/100):
    "I was expecting a slow-paced drama, similar to The Twilight Samurai. I
    didn't expect this level of humor and humanity, blended into a
    traditional story to create a fine samurai movie."

    WHITE DRAGON (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 79/100):
    "This film lives and dies by the humor, and happens to be just loony
    enough to survive."
