Widescreen Advocate Teams Up with E-Critics.com

I am pleased to announce that Widescreen Advocate is teaming up with E-critics.com. E-critics is a brand new DVD/Movie review site that has a growing collection of reviews. E-critics is now our official review site. The site covers a few genre’s that other popular DVD review sites miss. In the few weeks they have been open, they have added quite a few DVD and movie reviews. The site does plan to review a lot of non-mainstream films. I expect a lot more reviews to be added in the coming weeks and months. So give them a read.

Widescreen Only Major Releases!
Sat, July 3, 2004

Over the last several weeks and months, we have been blessed with quite a few widescreen only major releases, which in the past have been less frequent. Bad Santa, Barber Shop 2, Blazing Saddles, The English Patient, The Godfather, and Monster all come to mind as recent widescreen only releases. This is a good trend, and we hope it keeps up. But there are still studios that are not providing widescreen for all releases, namely Columbia Tri-Star and Disney. So keep up the pressure on these studios.

The site had some downtime over the last few days, thanks to a hard drive failure on our server. The hard drive was replaced quickly, but it took a while to move the data over, hence the extended downtime. The site is now back to normal, and there was no data loss. I apologize to those of you who missed the site.
