I thought it might be a good idea to explain a little about what we ought to be doing in this section.
I'd really like to see as much detail as possible in these reviews - not just a single line saying "I gave it an eight" or whatever.
What would be nice, as well as helpful, would be to have am explanation of why it was given the mark it was - try to tell what content there is, what audio types are present - remember that there may well be someone reading this section to get an idea of what is available, what is good and what is to be avoided.
So, if possible, we should use this section as a chance to warn about, rave about and otherwise recommend (or not) each title listed here.

I would like to think also that we will get enough reviews and scores in to create a DVD-V chart in much the same way as we have with the HiRez section too.
Ten reviews or more gets the title "in the chart" as it were, and we need at least 20 titles with a total of 10 or more to make it worthwhile to do.

Finally - the one thing to bear in mind here is that it should be predominantly about the music content - Video content here is a minor issue IMHO. After all, it is the music that is supposed to matter - not the alleged spectacle of talentless bimbos and himbos gyrating on a stage whilst miming (badly, more often than not) to some trite piece of throwaway garbage.

Oh - finally - any requests for slots here? Just drop me a PM and it will be done. Looking for nothing and everything at the same time. Doesn't matter about genre, style, age, the most important thing is the music.

Many thanks for staying through this dreadfully dreary post.

I kind of disagree with this. While the music and surround is the most important factor with a DVD-V, it is a DVD-V and therefore the video content and quality is important. It also depends on what you are reviewing. For instance, when reviewing a Shania Twain DVD-V it is best done with the volume off and then the video becomes the whole thing.;)

Yeah, I look at a DVD-V as a whole. Some I can't enjoy because the picture really sucks or the band is boring live, and it has a bearing on my opinion overall.
