Can someone recommend some good sites with definitive info. I guess by definitive I mean every little detail about the dvd. For example, say I wanted to buy WarGames on DVD but wanted to find out what aspect ratio it was ? Also what kinda sound formats are on the dvd ? is it anamorphic, are there extras ? is there a special edition coming soon I should wait for ? how was the video transfer ?
I like the info that dvd profiler gives, but that is a bulky Visual Basic program that is slow and to find out info about a disc I have to add it to my collection and then delete again after I find all the info I want, there's gotta be a website out there somewhere !
Thanks,

Widescreen Review:
Picture Quality: 3 (5 is the highest rating)
The non-anamorphic DVD exhibits good contrast and color fidelity. Colors are generally natural with and deep blacks, but sometimes are
inconsistent. The picture is a little soft throughout. The mediocre picture is matted at 1.82:1.
Sound Quality: 3 (5 is the highest rating)
The Dolby® Digital 5.1 discrete soundtrack is often a 3.0 delivery. Fidelity sounds thin, but when the split surrounds and .1 low frequency
effects are engaged, the discrete version comes alive with aggressive surround envelopment. Overall, this is a conventional mix, but
disappointing through much of the film when surrounds are nil and there is dialogue leakage in the stereo channels.

I don't think there is a definitive site out there. There's just too much information. However, other than checking the reliable e-commerce sites (Amazon, DVDEmpire, etc.) who have a monetary interest in having correct data, you can use this search engine to find reviews about a particular DVD:
