[Strip of film rule]

February 6, 2001 -- Due to a change in the way I attend first-run movies (I'm way more selective since I no longer get in for free) and the fact that I bought a couple of blu-ray players, a new HDTV, high definition projector, surround sound system etc., I've started up a new page for reviews of movies, many of which I've seen in DVD and blu-ray format, others, I have seen in movie theaters months or years after their initial release. For DVD reviews, I've added some technical information about the discs and have added commercial links to places where they can be purchased or rented. If you can't find what you are looking for here, check my main film review archive (links to it are at the bottom of this page) of over 2,800 reviews.
