I’ve just discovered a new website well worth spending some time with. It is They offer reviews of films on DVD, on Blu-ray/HD DVD, video games and movies currently in the theaters. The site began in 1999 as an online forum, and email newsletter and a page of DVD news and reviews. Now you can find a review database, features, including radio interviews with film people and columns including but not limited to, anime, horror and silent films. They now have an online radio/podcast called DVD Talk Radio. As the person who buys the DVDs for the library this is a particularly useful site. I am always on the lookout for variety and diversity and this site has wonderful articles on international films, TV on DVD, plus information about film festivals and what they are showing. I found a great article devoted to Douglas Fairbanks which is of interest to me as a student of film. I have just touched the tip of the iceberg on this site—there is so much more to explore! Take a look and have some fun!
