I'll admit that what I am about to mention is a topic I have *heard* of, and
have seen used a few times... But am not versed in...

But instead of devoting time to generating new reviews of titles that others
are also reviewing, have you considered using RSS feeds to provide your
users access to such reviews?

Granted this probably would not allow you to address only the titles in your
collection.

A google search for RSS Feeds and Movie Reviews shows sites such as:

http://www.rssfeeds.com/feeds/T0RFM09EZz0=/

Is anyone on VideoLib using RSS feeds for film/video reviews?
