The Digital Bits

This extensive, all-purpose DVD, SACD, and HD site includes, among other things, reviews of and information about classic films on DVD. You’ll also enjoy the variety of columns by several regular Digital Bits columnists.

The DVD Journal

DVD news, reviews, commentary, and “stuff like that” by a staff that claims to be ill-kempt, ill-tempered and uneducated. But you can’t prove that by me, and judging from the editor’s Top 25 list, they’re mostly classic fans.
