Doug Pratt's book is a compilation of the reviews he published monthly in
_The DVD-LaserDisc Newletter_. It's probably the best choice for a DVD
review magazine. It costs $35.00 a year and it's a bargain. The
subscription address is P.O. Bos 420, East Rockaway, NJ 11518-0420. On
the web at: <www.DVDLaser.com>

My other co-favorite source for DVD reviews is _Video Librarian_. Randy's
"DVD Spotlight" section is excellent. Plus, you get all of the other
video reviews too! It's $47.00 per year ($37.00 for new subscribers). The
address is 8705 Honeycomb Ct. NW, Seabeck, WA 98380, or through
subscription agencies. On the web at:
