This is sub-site #1 to my DVD News Flash blog. Here you’ll find nothing but DVD and Blu-ray reviews of upcoming movies only.  I also have a second sub-site for all my “other” reviews. I call these, For-The-Hell-Of-It’ Reviews.

What’s a ‘for-the-hell-of-it review’?

It’s a review of any DVD that has been in release for some time and/or has gone out of print. Movies that I already own, have owned for years in some cases, but have a sudden yen to talk about. You know, reviews I’ve done just for the hell of it.
