In theory, every single forum link on our site has been updated. However, if you do spot any old links, please let us know via the forums or, if you are not registered as a forum member, the Feedback form.
Please note that forum registrations are still temporarily suspended but will re-open again shortly.

UPDATE: OUR FORUMS ARE MOVING

Thursday 13th November 2008

We are planning to move our forums over a long weekend, starting tomorrow. If all goes to plan the new forums will be up and running on Sunday. Keep an eye on this page for further updates.

OUR FORUMS ARE MOVING

Saturday 8th November 2008

We will be moving our forums across to join our main site very shortly. We have already suspended user registration and will be closing the forums in due course in order to prepare for the move. We are hoping that the work will be completed by the end of November but please bear with us and accept our apologies if you experience any problems trying to use the forums.

PROBLEM RESOLVED

Wednesday 15th October 2008

The menu bar has been restored.

REWIND NEEDS YOU

Saturday 19th July 2008

We are looking for an enthusiastic reviewer to join our team.

Over the years our review section has grown to become an integral part of the website, covering titles from every major studio and independent distributor including boutique labels. The workload has increased since Blu-ray was announced as the winner of the HD war and releases are becoming more regular.

With the influx of titles it can sometimes be hard to keep up. This is why we are looking for a new reviewer. It is important that you have an HD set-up and are capable of reviewing Blu-ray discs, although you will also be asked to review DVDs as well, so if you are HD ready, have a love for movies and TV, can keep up with release deadlines and are keen to review a variety of titles then we would love to hear from you. You must meet the following requirements:

- Excellent writing skills
- A suitable knowledge of film and TV
- You must be HD compatible (HD TV and Blu-ray player)
- You must have a home theater set-up with minimum 5.1 speaker system
- You must have an understanding of the technical aspects of DVD and Blu-ray (aspect ratios, audio formats etc.)
- You must be over 17 years old and currently reside in either the United States or Canada, unfortunately we cannot accept applicants from other countries at this time.

Like all the team members working on the site, it is completely voluntary and does not pay but the perks are the free copies of the latest DVDs and Blu-ray releases from major studios that you get to keep. If you are interested, please email us at admin@dvdcompare.net with the following details:

- Your full name
- Your forum name (if you are already registered)
- Your home theater set up
- A sample review of a recent film

REWIND REVIEWS ARE MOVING

Monday 25th February 2008

We have been working behind the scenes for a long time to establish a way of having our reviews on the main Rewind site and we can now announce that it is becoming a reality.

There are a very small number of reviews which have already moved across to our Rewind Reviews area of the main site and we will now begin to move the remainder across, as well as start to create new reviews ON THE MAIN SITE ONLY. So bookmark that link now - it will eventually become your one and only source of Rewind Reviews.

In addition, any release listed in a comparison which has an associated Rewind Review will be marked with this logo which provides you with a direct link to the detailed review.

This will be a very time consuming exercise for us and, during this period, you may notice that we are not so hot with updating the comparisons database with your comparisons, corrections and requests.

Lastly, the alphabetical indexes available on the forums will be kept up to date with updated links when reviews are moved.

EAGLE VS SHARK

Friday 15th February 2008

Thanks to our friends at Warner Brothers, we have a Region 4 copy of Eagle vs Shark to giveaway. Simply visit the Eagle vs Shark competition forum thread to find out how to enter.

WE HAVE A WINNER

Sunday 13th January 2008

Our recent competition to win a copy of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End has closed and the winner has been announced over in the Pirates 3 competition forum thread.

WE ARE BACK

Tuesday 1st January 2008

We hope you all had a very happy Christmas and an enjoyable New Years Eve. During this festive period our Site Manager Adrian Busby has been working hard behind the scenes to transfer the entire site over to a new server. This has now been successfully completed and the additional added flexibility the new server gives us, allows new features to be added throughout 2008. The Rewind Forums will reopen later this month.
