BRUCE LEE ULTIMATE COLLECTION (reviewed by Kerry Birmingham, overall

stuff, we are treated to what is referred to in the ancient texts as 'a
great deal of asskickery.'"

CYCLONE (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 70/100):
"There was a lot of wind and rain (a lot of rain), but I never felt
that this cyclone was the be-all and end-all of travesties the film
wanted it to be."

DIVINE EMANUELLE: LOVE CULT (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall
"I can't speak for anyone else, but seeing a naked Leo Sayer look-a-like
being flogged is always good for a laugh."

LENNY BRUCE: PERFORMANCE FILM (reviewed by Steve Evans, overall
"Hilarity is subjective. Having seen this disc and listened to a couple
of Lenny Bruce records, I say with total conviction that he was not a
very funny guy. Provocative? Yes. Controversial? No doubt. Influential?
Absolutely. But he does not make me laugh."

RATED R: REPUBLICANS IN HOLLYWOOD (reviewed by Ian Visser, overall
"Please, documentarians of the world, stay behind the camera and let
your subjects to the talking. "

THE ROCKVILLE SLAYER (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 69/100):
"Perhaps if you adjust your expectations and go in knowing it's a
psychological thriller and not a slasher pic, you might have a decent
time. For horror fans, I don't recommend it."

SEASON OF THE WITCH / THERE'S ALWAYS VANILLA (reviewed by Joel Pearce,
overall score 65/100):
"The characters talk about psychoanalysis, dream study, mind-altering
drugs, and sexual affairs with an almost textbook distance and
passivity. After an hour, I was begging for a zombie to come bursting
through the door."

TOXIE'S TOP TEN: THE COLLECTOR'S SET (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
"My dear friends, are you ready for this explosion of schlock?! What
lies ahead are 10 -- that's right, 10 -- films of such low-grade
quality, that their very existence, together, in one set, will likely
create great rifts in the space-time continuum, throwing all of
existence off-kilter, and ushering in an era of existential breakdown
that will surely obliterate all of creation."
