History of DVDizzy Movie Reviews
DVDizzy began in January of 2001 as The Ultimate Guide to Disney DVD under the site name UltimateDisney.com. Luke Bonanno, a senior at Regis High School in Manhattan who had just turned 18, was recovering from a knee surgery in the midst of an epic growth spurt. He put together a number of lists of Disney movies that were and weren’t available on DVD and the site grew rapidly and extensively from there.
By the time he graduated from New York University in 2005, Luke was working on the site full-time. In the 20 years since DVDizzy has grown into a hub for film enthusiasts and a respected source of unbiased reviews for movie reviews in theaters and on DVD and Blu-ray discs.
