Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore worked some considerable magic to fly from No. 19 to the very top of the Watched at Home Top 20 chart this week, with a lift from its physical disc release. The Batman, meanwhile, fell from No. 3 to No. 16. Among new titles, Downton Abbey: A New Era had a pleasant introduction at No. 8 and Stephen King adaptation Firestarter sparked at No. 17. Everything Everywhere All at Once returned at No. 13 ahead of its physical disc release.

I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
