FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ONE MAN WEB SITE- THE CINEMA LASER POSTS ITS 2000TH ON-LINE REVIEW
Las Vegas, Nevada, May 4, 2009- The Cinema Laser announced today that it had posted its 2000th on-line review. It has been a long, but enjoyable journey for writer/editor/webmaster Derek M. Germano, who marks this milestone with a bit of pride and a great deal of gratitude towards those who have supported this one man web site. If it hadn’t been for the encouragement of the regular visitors to the site, as well as the cooperation of those individuals within the home entertainment industry, The Cinema Laser web site may not have come this far and lasted more than a decade on-line. In the eleven plus years since the web site began its online coverage (not to mention the years it existed as a print only publication), The Cinema Laser has had the opportunity to watch the state of the art transition from Laserdisc to DVD and now to high definition on Blu-ray Disc.
About The Cinema Laser: The Cinema Laser began very humbly in 1991, as a homegrown print publication that utilized an Amiga 500 computer and a dot matrix printer to review movies in the Laserdisc format. While The Cinema Laser was envisioned as a publication to be given away free of charge, printing and postage costs made it necessary to begin collecting a modest fee for each issue. The transition from print to the web allowed The Cinema Laser to achieve its earliest goal, as well as making the publication available to an audience as vast as anyone with an Internet connection. Of course, Laserdiscs have since faded into home theater history and Blu-ray Disc is still a relatively new kid on the block, but The Cinema Laser continues as has for the last eighteen years, reviewing films on the laser read optical medium that defines the current state-of-the-art.
