What are some good DVD Review sites?

Besides DVD Talk which I find the best..are there any other sites that are really good with new and upcoming release DVD reviews? Ones that are as thorough and informative as I think DVD Talk's are? Thanks in advance for any help.

http://www.digitallyobsessed.com/ and http://www.dvdfile.com/ are both daily visits for me. I'm also a fan of http://www.dvdmg.com/

I'm partial to my own site (:-)), and we do seem to inadvertently concentrate on upcoming and big studio titles - http://filmfreakcentral.net/

I would suggest shopping around, too, at this DVD review database, a site I find myself visiting more than any individual review destination - http://www.dvd-basen.dk/uk/home.php3

In addition to the ones already mentioned I would include the following.

Aaron Beierle's A Guide To Current DVD

DVD Authority

The DVD Journal

Movie Review Query Engine - Similar to DVD-Basen but sometimes has different DVD reviews also.

Colin Jacobson at DVD Movie Guide is IMHO the best online DVD reviewer out there, bar none. He not only provides quality in-depth analyses of both the film and the technical aspects of the DVD, he does so in an extremely entertaining and likable manner. If I could write my reviews half as well, I'd quit my day job tomorrow and raise llamas with Jeff Schwartz.

I just recently stumbled upon them also, perhaps only about 10 days ago, and his reviews stood out to me also. Think I looked up some recent titles via DVD Basen and that's how I came across them.

I have just started new movie review database site called MovieReviewIndex.com . Its somewhere in between dvd-basen and mrqe.com.

Current database status

Sites Indexed: 137
Films in total: 43 201
DVD reviews: 81 298
Reviews in total: 123 543

i made this database 'cos i got tired of trying to find reviews to asian films and to get more than just one opinion of the film. But later i decided to include reviews from all genres. There is still 'special' section for Asian genre

Asian.MovieReviewIndex.com

Check it out and please give me some feedback.

MRQE and DVD Basen are part of my routine now but competition is good so thanks for sharing the site. I like the layout and gives another option to compare reviews available.

I noticed that if you include words like 'the' in front of the movie name it won't pick up any results. DVD Basen does that too I think so it isn't bothersome.

Colin at DVDMG.com is a very nice person and I think he would be very appreciative of the praise in this thread.

When the movie titles are put to database, titles are converted so that "The" and "A" in front of the movie are put to the end. For example "The Others" will be "Others, The".

Thanks for pointing that out, i think that i will fix the search so that "the" in front of the search string will be taken out.

Of course other option is to put it to end, but do the users normally write the whole name of the movie...

Here's yet another to add to the list:

The Digital Review

Especially good if you like screen shots included with the reviews.
