Seeking Adult Blu-Ray Reviewers

XCritic is seeking reviewers to cover Adult High-Def/Blu-Ray titles. With more Adult High Def Releases we're finding our Adult High Def Section has been exploding.

If you're interested email me at editor at xcritic.com with a sample review.

Thanks

Why do you think our reviews are broken down scene by scene

Cleared out some of the arguing.

As far as I know, part of the deal with the switchover is that Geoff can make these sorts of posts. If you take issue with that, it'd be better discussed in Forum Feedback.

Thanks Adam. It seems of late whenever I post anything about XCritic here there's some contingent hell bent on bashing me.

It just seems weird to review porn...I mean, do people really read them and go "Anal and fisting? Seems like a purchase!

I'd be all over or if I wasn't so busy with everything else I'm doing.

Different readers look for different things in a review; some want to see what the gals look like (the pictures help with that), others want to know if condoms are used (and if so, how often), still others look for accurate cast lists by scene (avoiding some movies if they aren't happy with the pairings or types of sex included), and some want to know if a flick is 63 minutes or six hours long.

Each reviewer caters to a different style so you might find someone with similar tastes or even completely opposite tastes (our goal is to give readers a good idea of what to expect from a title more than simply provide laundry lists for the sex acts). If you happen to read any of the reviews, by all means let the reviewer know what you liked, disliked, or wanted more of in their review; that's how we improve them (just as feedback has greatly elevated the quality of reviews here at DVD Talk, the same can be said fro the reviews at Xcritic, most of which were here first). Thanks!

With all the free porn on internet, why do people buy/rent DVD's?

You could ask the same thing about mainstream movies/TV, videogames, and software.

Not only this, but from my experience, it seems that even the directors read the reviews of their films at xcritic. It's quite possible that some solid, fair criticism, may help them make better decisions in the future to better their work.

With porn, there's a lot of things to look for. You normally have no idea what to buy if you want to purchase a DVD, but reading reviews can help you determine if that DVD is within the realm of your taste.

Agreed. There is also a wide variety in the technical merits of a DVD. The picture and sound quality can be quite different. Also, in some films the performs mail in their work while they might be more enthusiastic in another scene. Just like their mainstream counterparts. I think something like 1000 movies are released each month, so a review system really helps to figure out what is worth your time.

Would a submitted review "for review" need to be of a blu-ray? I current only have dvd's and mainstream blu-rays. FYI, I have a PS3 and a 56" LCoS display.

Feel free to submit a review of a standard definition adult title; as it stands, there is a greater need for standard def reviewers and the high definition material will likely be spread out among those with the appropriate equipment (the expectation being a heavier emphasis on the tech sections for the Blu-Ray titles in reviews). Last time I looked, there were 300+ titles on the pick list for reviewers so the need for quality reviewers is always a concern.

I'm kinda interested, how often does a review need to be turned in? are the discs free, and are they to be kept?
