4/5 —— Rocky & Bullwinkle Show - Complete Season 1 (2003) " The four-disc set packs in 26 shows, more or less as they aired back in the day. The presentation is probably as good as it's going to get -- and it's good enough. " — Hollywood Reporter

89% 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (1954) " The talky 20,000 Leagues probably won't thrill kids fresh from The Matrix, but they may be interested to know that the Verne film was the effects marvel of its day." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 14, 2003
85% The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) " By turns, creepy and cheesy, literate and vapid." — Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 14, 2003
