Just wanted to know where are some sites that offer unbiased, comprehensive listing of dvd reviews other than this board. If any can help, please post. Thanks.

Go to:
http://www.dvdfile.com/

and click the review index link.

This excellent page is a searchable index of review links compiled from over a dozen sites. Most films have links to at least a half dozen reviews.

The BEST PLACE to get unbiased reviews is at DVDEMPIRE.COM. Regular people review them, like myself, and you can turn in reviews. They take all reviews so this often gives you many opinions to look at instead of just one person's opinion.

Just in case some people don't know about finding biased reviews, here is one good way.

One way to get a list of potentially-biased review sites is to go to the Internet Movie Database and then pick a current popular movie. Once there, click on the "external reviews" for that movie. You will now see a list of reviews. Pick a few of them and once there, you will notice that the sites have a LOT of reviews on other movies as well.

RATIONALE:
The reason for picking a current movie is so that the list of reviews will be current with current links. The reason for picking a popular movie is that there will be a lot of reviews. The reason for picking external reviews is that the reviews are typically hosted at a website that hosts a LOT of reviews in that style of review.

HINT:
For negative reviews, pick a widely-known bomb (Avengers?) and click on external reviews. You will see reviews by some sites whose specialty is dissing the movie.

COMMENT:
Some reviewers may be biased, but they have a skill in reviewing that brings out certain points, and sometimes, they have inside info sources that make the review very informative. If you check out the review sites above, you may find that some reviewers closely echo your own feelings about different moviews and you might end up bookmarking that site as a must read.

I almost always look for Ebert's take, as well as commentary from The Mutant Reviewers From Hell as useful and entertaining sources of insight. Ni!
