Lee and myself are going to begin periodically posting "Spotlights" on Blu-ray discs that we feel are worthy of recognition. Spotlights won't be full blown reviews but will synopsize the content, provide an overview of its technical merits, and include a recommendation. We get many requests from members looking for our input on titles that we have not or won't be receiving for "official" review. Since it is impossible for us to review every Blu-ray release we would like to provide members with a snapshot of discs that weren't sent to us for official coverage but that we may have in our personal collections.
Conversely there may be Spotlights on discs that we are in fact covering but haven't officially posted yet. This could be because we feel it warrants special attention or sometimes we get back logged and can't get reviews posted prior to street date. These Spotlights will provide less detail than those referred to above and will serve as a precursor to the official review. In such cases the Spotlight thread will be locked so that any discussion takes place in the official review thread once it goes live. We hope that this will be another way for us to provide the AVS Forum membership with a means to enjoy this great format.
