What is the best Blu Ray review site (or whatever happened to HDDb.net)?

Is there a new good site to collectively view reviews for blu rays? I used to frequent HDDb.net, and from there check on different reviews from different sites. Now when I click on my link th HDDb.net, it goes to moviemarbles site, which does not compare at all to the old site. I actually don't find this site useful at all.

Any suggestions on a good alternative to HDDB.net? For now I access three review sites separately, bluray.com, highdefdigest.com, and dvdtalk.

Thanks.

You've named two of the best - this site, and HighDef Digest. They're actually the only two I use these days.

I generally start things off at dvd-basen.dk and let that site direct me to whatever reviews might be out there for a particular blu-ray.

By far the best current site for Blu-ray reviews is Cinema Squid's site.

http://www.cinemasquid.com/blu-ray/movies/reviews

The moviemarbles site is absolutely useless and destroyed a decent resource in HDDB.

I'll plug the site I write for in my signature of course. But we do have a lot of reviews and for the most part we are pretty fair. We just don't do screenshots (except when I do game reviews) if you are into that sort of thing.


Outside of that, I read a lot of the reviews on here as well as Blu-Ray.com and dvdbeaver.com.

DVD-Basen is a great resource, as it culls reviews from a wide variety of sites, and you can adjust your search by region.

Yep.
