    Hear hear!
    Definitely won't be the same around here without your reviews Ron.
    You have mighty big shoes to fill whoever is going to take over.
    Thanks again Ron for all those superb, honest reviews.

    I completely agree, I like your rewievs more than most of the review site's I used to read actually.

    I hope the new reviewer is not too technical minded

    I'll definitely miss Ron's reviews! I'd be thrilled to take over the position but my life is so busy as it is I'd barely have time for it. Arrrggghhh!! [​IMG]

    I would also like to say a big THANK YOU too!

    I'll definitely miss Ron's reviews, having said that I wish him the best and hope he at least makes enough time to enjoy his own library of DVDs. I can barely keep up with watching all the discs I've bought lately. And to think the studios are going to release even more incredible titles this year!

    Ron thanks again for all your wonderful reviews. They will be missed, but surely not forgotten.

    a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from Ron Epstein always peaked my interest and very often allowed me to discover a dvd or a film that I might have otherwise ignored.

    20,000 Leagues is one of my most anticipated releases because of his very review.

    9 times out of 10 I don't let a reviewer bias my decision, but Ron was the 1 that did because I feel like he is "one of us"....

    I'll miss your review, but understand the reasons for you diverting attention elsewhere. Hell, I thought the HTF wasyour full time profession with all the reviews and amount of work you do. You deserve a well earned break.

    I will also miss your reviews. One of the things I liked about your reviews was that it was first about the movie. Your love for the movies you reviewed was very apparent.

    Ron,

    Your hard work has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Please accept my gratitude for your wonderful reviews.

    I enjoyed the "layman" aspect of your critiques, finding them a bit more accessible, on the whole, than other sites. I hope that whomever you've found to take your place at least acknowledges that a lot of Home Theater Forum members enjoy that aspect too.

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,

    I have many movies now that I never would have even noticed on the shelves if not for your reviews. And I've yet to regret a single purchase. Especially the older movies.

    I'll certainly miss your reviews, but I'm glad you'll be able to simply enjoy the movies now without having to worry about the review. Free movies from the studios certainly sounds great, but there's no way I could do it. I like to watch what I want to watch, when I want to watch it and only watch as much as I want to.

    I also have greatly enjoyed your reviews, Ron! And like others here, they led me to some great movies I might otherwise had ignored or not known about.

    Thanks for your great service you have provided to movie fans!

    Thanks for all of the hard work that you put into all of your reviews. I have always liked your reviews better than the "professional" sites. You just keep it simple, straightforward, to the point, and easy to understand. Sure, there may have been some grammar errors along the way, but they did not matter because the quality of the review made up for it. I hope that the replacement will keep the reviews on the same level as you did.

    My favorite part about all of your reviews is that they are right to the point, and have no filler. You tell it like it is, and we all appreciate that. Also you usually go over every aspect of the DVD, and describe it in a great manner.

    I can see why you are not doing reviews any more. It must be a strain working a job and doing reviews at the same time. I hope that you will now be able to take a more active part in the HTF community. I also hope that you will have more free time to enjoy the movies that you WANT to see.

    Take it easy Ron.

    I'm just now seeing the note that your not going to post reviews any more. They will be greatly missed. I've picked up many a movie on your recommendation that I would never have thought about before I read your words.

    Thanks for sharing with us.
