    Was just wandering which UK magazine people rate for news/reviews/info on DVD's etc.

    None!

    I buy the movie I want to watch, it's not as though a studio releases one good one and one bad one. Ah you say, what about R1 vs R2? Mags used to compare the 2 on occasion, but I've not seen them recently.

    Print is also hampered by being sometimes months behind, often I will have the disc in my hand before a review appears. Same with new release info, much as I hate to admit it the internet does this rather better.

    Wasnt so much for film reviews as I tend to buy Empire for that (on the occasions that I still buy it).

    Was looking more for a mag that had info on release dates, product details etc.

    Perhaps its better sticking to using the web but there is just something so much nicer about a magazine.

    Regards

    DVD monthly is quite good, good review's, free preview VCD every month, quite good hardware reviews, and nice price £3.99.
    Alternitivley (don't think I spelt that right) the webn is always a good source.

    Oh and......Total DVD of course:D

    I don't see the point of so many DVD Mags, ok have just one or two...but there are loads on the market.

    I doubt they sell very well either. The only DVD Review mags i've ever bought are when they had DVD Demo discs on the front.

    Hi,

    I always buy "DVD Review" simply because I enjoy the quality reviews of Region 1 titles, and news. Sorry, but in my opinion, the rest of the DVD mags are pretty p***-poor in comparison.

    Why offer a free VCD on a DVD mag for god's sake? That's like offering a free audio cassette on a CD reviewing mag!

    Also, it's kinda difficult to take a desktop PC to the bog, to read about stuff! :D

    No,but i have heard of a commode.:D

    I used to buy DVD Review and Total DVD and maybe another random one that caught my eye until i counted up how much i was spending on them,so i stopped buying any and bought an extra DVD in their place.
