When will reviews for ROTK be posted? It's coming out in 15 days and I thought the reviews would be out by now. Anybody have any info on this?

I believe reviewers have to wait until 14 days before release until they're allowed to post reviews, so you may start seeing reviews tomorrow.

I don't believe New Line has the 14 day rule. Anyways, you should start seeing reviews pop up today.

Digital bits has posted that theirs will be up tomorrow. I imagine most sites will be up tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 11th, so that is 14 days until the release.

Most sites just got the set today. So the earliest for most will be tomorrow, but you will see one or two pop up today.

The issue of WSR that I got today had it on the cover, plus a full page review of the DVD.

Just wanted to clarify that the Bits specifically states that the reviews are embargoed until tomorrow so I doubt you'll see any today unless that is the last review copy they want to see...

He definitely keeps getting worse and worse. That was hard to read.
He sat in a sanitarium for fifteen years waiting for me.

I didn't think Bracke's review was bad at all. I thought it was above average. I got chills just reading him describing the movie because it brought back memories of seeing it at Trilogy Tuesday.

The captions were funny as hell!
