    I know that this was discussed before,but darn it, I can't find the thread!

    Anyways, I just saw by accident that Better Off Dead was coming out next month. Is there one decent place where someone could look up a list of all the DVD's coming out for a particular time period?

    Thanks in advance...

    Hollywood Bitch Slap does a pretty good job of listing all of the upcoming releases. Plus they break them down into: movies, T.V, anime, direct to video........

    Yay, Jesse! That's my site! (Well, not MINE, but I'm a reviewer and administrator threre and I do all the work. [​IMG] )
    You can thank Erik Childress for keeping that DVD list updated thoroughly and weekly!! He checks ALL the sites that the DVD freaks do, and keeps the DVD list in tip-top shape.
    I'm thrilled to see that a little word-of-mouth has spread. Erik will be very happy.
    Here's that link again!

    How odd!
    I was going to suggest this most excellent Region 1 resource: http://efilmcritic.com/hbs.cgi?feature=315 .
    However, I first took a look at that recommended above, and found that it was exactly the same, albeit at a different site.
    What gives???
    Either way you see it, this is as good as it gets. If only there was something like this over here in Region 2.

    Tom,
    www.efilmcritic.com came first, and was created to become Australia's #1 review/release date site. It has become just that. A bit later, an American counterpart (www.hollywoodbitchslap.com) was born.
    Aside from the color schemes, the highlighted release dates, and a few choice vulgarities, the sites are identical in every way. Hope that explains things!

    I would also like to mention DVD Price Search -- although DVDs don't appear there until they start showing up for pre-order at merchant sites.

    DVD Planet has an e-mail list you can subscribe to that comes out weekly with newly released titles and a separate e-mail that comes out periodically with titles for pre-order.
    I have to say though, the weekly new release e-mail has gotten kind of disappointing as they now only include about 6 titles with a link to see the entire list on their site. It used to have a few major titles at the top of the weekly e-mail and a complete list below those in the actual e-mail.

    Click on "Advanced Search". Then for release date, put in a range of - say - 7/02/02 through 7/02/02. Leave every other field as-is, and then [Submit]. You'll see a list of every release coming up this Tuesday.

    DVD Empire has an amazing pre-order list.
    Just go up to "New & Future Releases". I also like using the "New Additions" option once or week or so to see hwat pre-orders have been added.

    I also make it a point to read DVD File daily for new release news.
